Investment & FAQs
what you really get
You want a photographer whose presence, personality, and experience meets your needs
There's no way to understand or fully feel the weight of your wedding day & the moments that will unfold before actually living it. But hear me out on this: when the day is over, the honeymoon passes in a blur, and it's back to the normalcy of life and the days turn into years & kids come into your arms, and 7 years has passed before your eyes (like it has for me!), you'll then begin to feel the weight of this day. And you'll have booked a photographer who had the experience, empathy, and insight into what matters, what LASTS or you'll have gone with the trends or the cheapest and be longing for photos never documented. This investment goes beyond just the photographs.
The photographer you invite into your wedding will have an impact on the day and on the photographs. I spend the entire day with you so my presence will impact how your day feels and therefore what the images turn out like. And you want that presence to be someone who is positive, calming, peaceful, joyful, and servant-hearted; someone who has your best interest in mind and truly cares about the values & people you care about. This is what I bring to the table. My 9 years experience as a photographer combined with my life experience as a married man, father, foster & adoptive dad has granted me a unique perspective and insight into human emotions, moments, and the impact of time.
