I'm one of the country's premier wedding photographers, and I do get around. But I'm also just a relaxed, friendly guy. In my spare time, I'm a professional storyteller, so life is a fairy tale to me!

I specialize in helping everyone feel comfy and friendly, getting natural, fun expressions from the wedding couple and guests. I use both a journalistic approach and setting up a few special shots that most brides and grooms want.

Of course, I always work with you and tailor my work to your needs, whatever style you want. We'll be friends forever when your wedding is over!

At home, I have a wife of 23 years, two kids, three dogs, two cats, two snakes, a lizard, a bird and a fish. I like to read (LOTR, Brandon Sanderson, Dickens are among my favorites), dine out, hike & camp, garden, and I'm also a gourmet chef, just for fun. You can also often find me directing theatre shows in the evening or taking actor headshots as I travel.

I like to travel, and I have friends in many states and cities across the country whom I visit often. Perhaps your wedding will be in one of these cities? That would be delightful!

My photos can be seen on book and CD covers, on hundreds of websites, in churches, in magazines and on home, business and gallery walls. I love photography, but my favorite subjects will always be happy people!

.  Anniversary Special! ♥ .

Book in March for 20% off!

Hey, it's our anniversary this month! 23 years of wedded bliss. Okay, there have been challenging times, but those have only served to bring us closer together over the long run. My wife has encouraged me to offer an Anniversary Special during the month of March! Make an appointment in March for your discount (the wedding doesn't have to be in March). 

(to Marianne:) Happy Anniversary, Sweetie!

I strive to provide an incredible value for the photographic experience I offer. My passion lies in creating cutting edge, unforgettable images that will last a lifetime and not go out of style in a few years. I also consult with you about your personalities and lifestyle and how you want your photos to look and feel. I can do anything from urban grunge weddings to old fashioned weddings to dreamy weddings. What is your flavor? 

All packages and photo sessions include the additional hours in the digital darkroom making your photos perfect. I’m an expert in Photoshop, and I can really make your photos shine!

The prices that follow are list prices, but since I tailor my work to the needs of each couple, they can vary greatly from what you see here. I often also have specials that you might have missed. Please contact me and we can chat about your needs and your budget.

10% off all packages that are paid in advance.

Travel:  I travel the world for photos! I recently shot photos in Hong Kong and California! You will find my prices to be very competitive, even if additional travel costs apply (usually flight/lodging)..
