Your photography is one of the most important elements of your wedding day — the images you receive will last for generations, allowing the legacy of your love story to live on. I only accept a limited number of weddings each year so that I can focus on the relationship I develop with each couple, which allows me to show up on your wedding day ready to celebrate you with my whole heart.

I've owned my photography business since 2008 and have photographed over 250 weddings. I believe most couples find that having a photographer with a lot of experience, close venue and vendor relationships, and the ability to remain a calm and comforting presence in the midst of wedding day chaos is far more important than their number of Instagram followers.
how long have you been in business?
Absolutely. I’ve photographed weddings in California, North Carolina, Mexico, and extensively throughout New England. My passport is always waiting for its next adventure. Please, someone get married in the Greek Isles?? For locations more than two hours outside of Greater Boston and the Cape, I may require accommodations for two nights, or a travel fee. This ensures that I am not waylaid by any travel snafus!
I used to live in sunny California, where rain on your wedding day was rarely an issue, but here in the Northeast we get lots and lots of practice shooting in less-than-favorable weather. Even though I like to think that I have good weather juju, I’ve had plenty of experience in working around the rain, snow, and fog. I will always have a back-up plan in place for your photos. I will keep you warm and dry, and I know how to light any room that we may have to use if we are forced indoors. And then, if you’re willing, I will be the first person out in the rain to make some truly unique portraits with you!
what if it rains?
The number of photos you receive will be based on a number of factors: the length of your wedding day, the number of locations where we photograph, whether or not you do a First Look, etc. I typically deliver anywhere from 600 to 1000 images from a standard 8-hour wedding, but that number is flexible. It's more important to me that I am delivering quality rather than quantity. I carefully cull through the images shot and deliver only the very best so that together we can create the most beautiful wedding story. Your photos will be delivered within six weeks of your wedding day, and your album design will begin shortly after that. Delivery times for albums and any fine art prints will vary.
My top three wedding packages include a digital download of all of your delivered files. Portrait customers can purchase a digital package, or buy individual digital files separately. While I do understand the impulse to own digital copies of your sessions, I also strongly encourage clients to print their photos. Make albums! Display canvases in your home! Frame those gorgeous faces and show them off! The digital world moves at a frightening speed; the chances that your digital files will be unreadable (remember when all computers had CD drives?) a few years down the road is a distinct possibility. I encourage sharing on social media, but unless you want all of your relatives to gather round the laptop at your 50th anniversary, I say PRINT!
