Your wedding is one of the biggest chapters in your love story. A day full of romance, heartfelt emotions, and unforgettable moments. Doesn't it deserve a photographer who goes beyond simply capturing moments with light, and instead weaves their artistic vision, and your heartfelt emotion, creating something far greater than a photograph?

So whether you're planning a grand wedding, or an simple elopement, follow me off the beaten path and let's create something truly wonderful. We'll have a blast doing it too!

Additional Information
I want to ensure that you get the very best photos possible, this is a once in a lifetime event after all. So every wedding package can be tailored to fit your individual needs. But there are some things every package includes.

First and foremost, I place no limits on how many images you will receive. I go through every shot taken and select every shot you'd want to see. From there, every photo selected is color processed with my unique style, then edited to look its very best. Typically I don't do heavy retouching, as I try to get as close to a finished photograph as possible in camera, but if there was no way to get a shot without including that pesky telephone poll I'll photo shop it out. These aren't just your wedding photos, they are my artwork and I can't stand it if they aren't exactly right.

The final product of all that work will be delivered to you via a USB drive, as well as a private online gallery. The print rights are included so you can print them where ever you like. You also have the option of ordering prints from my professional lab of choice through your private online gallery. I highly recommend any prints 8x10 or larger be done through the online gallery for best results. Your gallery will be up forever, so you can always see your photos on the go or share it with loved ones.

Every package also includes an engagement session free of charge. Why? Let's face it, having your photo taken can be a little awkward and if the person taking your photo is some dude you've just met for the first time it can be even more uncomfortable. So let's not be strangers at your wedding. Nine years of photographing weddings has made it abundantly clear; if I do an engagement session with a client the wedding photos will always turn out better. You and your love are more comfortable being yourselves in front of my camera, and having met and photographed you before, I have a better sense of how you'll act around each other.  So let's be friends, not strangers. If you've already done an engagement session, then let's do something totally different. I'm more than happy to drive up into the mountains and create something wildly romantic with you. Ask any of my clients, I'll drive across the country if it means I get to create something beautiful.

Last, but certainly not least, I'm a photograph hoarder. That very first wedding I shot back in 2009, yeah, I not only have every high resolution JPEGs I delivered to the happy couple, but every RAW file I shot as well. And it's all backed up on multiple drives. So if in 17 years your computer is stuck by a meteorite reducing all your wedding photos to vapor, give me a call and I'll get a new copy of them to you. No one should have to worry about losing their wedding photos.

Where to start? Norm flew all the way to Glacier NP to photograph our elopement. He did this without a hestiation at all. The day before our service he spent his whole time scouting out locations for our pictures to be taken even in the rain and wind. On the day of our special event he made us feel as comfortable as possible and hung with us from 8am to 9pm!! We hiked up 4 miles round-trip just to get photos at Avalanche Lake. Norm didn't complain a bit and was awesome to hang out and talk with. Norm, thank you for making us feel happy and for being the person we spent our special day with. ;)

Our big day went by so quick that we were not able to see everyone's reactions or see the small things happening around us. I feel Norman captured the special moments plus some. He is so professional! He made us feel so comfortable. We had asked for a second photographer who I believe was named Raul who was just as nice. I am extremely impressed with our pictures. He did everything he promised he would. I have highly recommend him to anyone. He is extremely creative and amazing. I will with no doubt book him for future events. Thank you Norman for being you!

Norm did our engagement session, our wedding, and most recently our maternity shoot. Each session delivered photos much beyond our expectations and we are so grateful for his expertise and creativity. I highly recommend Fifth Photography for your special elopement or wedding session.

We are forever grateful that we were lucky to find Fifth Photography for our elopement. Our friend Melissa Clark referred him (check our her review too!) to us and we were able to book a date on really short notice.

We didn't have a plan and we're very awkward, but somehow Norm created something for us that we'll appreciate forever. He recommended Big Sur as a location for wedding portraits after our ceremony. It was really beautiful! Norm made us feel really comfortable and guided on how how to stand or pose because we had no idea what to do. There are photos he saw the opportunity to create that I never in a million years would have thought of and I'm so, so glad that we have those now. Norm is not afraid to venture to special locations and hike to get there to get the right photos for you.

Our final photos are amazing and we love them. He sent a wonderful keepsake box with our wedding date on it and a few of his favorite prints inside with the USB for our photos. It was really sweet and again, something I never would have thought of and really appreciate. We can add other little mementos to the box and it's something we can bring out and show our family.

I can't recommend Fifth Photography and Norm enough.

Best photographer - hands down! Norman's photos are fantastic (I mean, just look at his website - https://www.fifthphotography.com/wedding-portfolio/ )
We hired Norman for our wedding back in October. He totally prepared us for our special day - we stressed about nothing. He was professional, fun, and so easy to work with. We highly recommend Norman!
