Additional Answers & Advice:
What is your wedding day philosophy?
  • A Wedding! NOT a modeling photo session!" Your favorite photographs from your wedding day will be of what really happened, not what the photographer made happen.  Your wedding day shouldn’t be ruined by a bossy photographer who keeps you away from your family and friends by spending way too much time taking posed, ’modeling’ or faked photos. We also believe every package should include REAL useable photographs too, (not just thumbnail contact sheets). Great photos are meant to be shared, that’s why we include a website, CD, inexpensive reprints & lots of photos with every package. We are honest and upfront with our pricing and don’t nickel and dime you to death. If you are fortunate enough to have us as your wedding day photographers we will unobtrusively get the GREAT images you want without ruining your day.
