The 12 years of experience I have allow me to not only capture amazing moments when the day is perfect but also when things don't go exactly as planned.

 

 

I want to be a good energy on the wedding day.

There shouldn’t be any added stress to an already beautifully busy day. So when you look around the room and soak in how fun and amazing the day has been so far, you can rest assured that I'm running around capturing that exact feeling.

 

 

I’m there to capture the moments in a natural way, blending into the wedding day seamlessly as to appear more like a friend rather than a random vendor.

 

Weddings shouldn’t be approached in a formulaic way because it is the moments in between all the scheduled events that tend to be the most lasting. I’m there for the timeline and everything in between.

 

 

I take my job very seriously. I care, more than I like to admit at times; your wedding day is a big deal to me. My photos will reflect how important this decision is and how meaningful the day is.

 

 

Covering every single aspect of the wedding day well is my priority. It is such a fast paced day so assuring that I provide quality work of the details, the moments with your family, the portraits, the dancing, all the way to the exit is very important to me so you can relive the day for decades to come.

Approach

Natural

 

First and foremost, my goal is to capture your wedding day moments in a natural unobtrusive way.

Creative

 

I'm always looking to approach your wedding from new and unique angles, my goal isn't to provide what you would expect from your wedding photos,

it's to go above and beyond that.

Fun

 

I want my passion and love for what I do to show through my photos. Trust me, when it comes to your wedding day, I'm having as much fun as you are.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do you charge? My rates are based on my experience and demand for my services and are customized to reflect the needs for every client. I photograph everything from 10 person micro-weddings to 3 day 800 guest Indian weddings, please contact me with the details of your event to get a custom quote.

Why should we hire you? Because I take photos that show who you two are as a couple; when you show your kids your wedding photos they can get to know who you were when you got married. I am experienced, having shot almost 400 weddings, extremely passionate about photography, and truly love what I do. I want you to relive your wedding day every time you look through your wedding album.

How do you handle destination weddings? I am always happy to set up a Skype consult to get to know each other before the big day. I like to arrive to the destination city 2 days before the wedding to assure that I am there in case there are travel delays. At the time of booking I will let you know how much our travel fees are based on the estimated cost of flights, car rental (if necessary), and hotel. I handle all the bookings for travel so you do not have to worry about it.

What is your backup plan? In the unlikely event that I would be unable to shoot your wedding due to something tragic I have a network of wedding photographers around the world that I can call in an emergency.

What is the album process? When the gallery is uploaded you will have the opportunity to select your favorites for the album. I will give you a pre-design based on your selections and we will go from there.

Who will be photographing our wedding? Small weddings include coverage by me, the rest of the packages offer coverage by me & an assistant photographer who covers different angles as well as assists with lighting during portraits.

What sort of equipment do you bring to a wedding? Your wedding day will only happen once and it is important that a professional photographer have reliable gear and always have a backup just in case something were to go wrong. I bring multiple camera bodies and lens as well as a second photographer to make sure that we capture your day without pause.

Do you shoot details and family formals? Absolutely. Before the wedding day I will finalize family formal list so I know who to cover and I always make sure to cover all the details that make your wedding gorgeous. (see below!)
