I have photographed over 300 weddings. I finally stop counting and lost track, but I still love being the lead photographer at a wedding.
Over the years I’ve learned there’s a lot more to wedding photography than just getting some good shots of the bride and groom…. to me it’s about telling a complete story.
During the wedding I rely heavily on my photojournalism background to capture all the details, the spontaneous moments and the big picture of the entire day. Then I take my skills as an artist and self proclaimed historian to create a beautiful collection of photos that relives the day for years to come.
The first part of my job is to help the couple with their planning needs. Before your wedding I personally work with you to design a package to fit your unique requirements. Once you’ve booked with me I like to meet with you to discuss details. This helps me know exactly what you expect and want.read more
On your wedding day I’m at your disposal. Please don’t be afraid to ask me to shoot something. I’m flexible and want to help insure that your day goes smoothly. I want to capture the emotion and connection each couple has with one another and with their family and friends. So, whether your wedding takes place in a church, on a beach, or in a family backyard, with 10, 50, or 200 guests I will make sure that your moments of joy, love and laughter are captured.
I think it is important to do the “set up” family shots, however, to make those shots less traditional, I like to take the time to create fun and unique portraits, and then after those shots are complete, I photograph the spontaneity of the day. Although candid shots are my favorite, I make sure I get a wide range of everything, so when all is said and done you will have the perfect variety of photos to tell your wedding story.
Whether you hire me or another photographer, my greatest advice to you is to hire a professional photographer. It’s the best investment in your wedding you can make. After your wonderful wedding is over, and all your family and friends have gone home, and the cake, the flowers, the dress, the food, the dancing, are all done, all you have left are your photographs and your memories…and even your memories will fade. So, please get a photographer who has shot many weddings, someone professional who really knows how to capture a wedding event. It’s the greatest gift you can give yourselves.
I don’t have pricing for my wedding services listed on the web because I prefer to work with you individually to find the perfect package for your wedding day. Each couple generally has different needs and desires for what they want in their wedding photography, so it is difficult to come up with standard pricing.
However, to give you and idea how I work, I charge by the hour, and by what gets included in your package. All packages will include two wedding consultations before the wedding, my time shooting at the wedding, online viewing.
Prices begin at $800. Please call for more information or an appointment to come by my studio to meet me and see all the different options I have to offer you. My phone number is 541-482-2930. If you are out of town and can’t come by my studio please feel free to call for a telephone consultation. I’m also available to shoot destination weddings.
