Capturing moments that last a lifetime...

Have you ever stopped to think about the power of a photograph?  How a single photograph has the ability to take you right back to that moment in time as though you’re reliving it all over again.  Feeling the emotions rush over you once again!  The joy, the excitement and nervousness of the day that lies ahead.

Envision for just a moment if you could only have one single photograph taken on your wedding day.  What starts to come to your mind?  Is it a photograph of you and your groom?  Or is it a photograph of everyone who was there to celebrate your day with you?  What do you see in the background?  Or more simply put, what’s the setting like? 

My goal as your photographer is to help you envision your perfect day!  Asking you questions like the one above will help guide me as to what is most important to you.  Because that is what a wedding is about.  It’s about you and him.  Everything else is secondary.  And if I can help you frame up that one photograph that would mean the world to you, I can then begin to understand and articulate the layout of your day and how best to capture it!

Your wedding day is the beginning of your lives together. The two of you have become one. And from this point forward you are establishing your own family. And I count it an honor to be there to document it so that you can share your story for generations to come.
