How long have you been in business?

Seventeen wonderful years!  I started my professional photography career by photographing a fun couple in a beautiful, foliage-filled autumn-themed wedding in November 2003.

What geographic areas do you cover?

Most of my clients have been located in Western New York, but I am available for destination shoots throughout the US.  Contact me so we can discuss a quote.

Do you have a studio?
No.  The majority of my portrait work is done outdoors in natural light.  My event photography work is done on location.  I've been hired for a variety of photography assignments during my career, so I'm very skilled at scouting out fun, scenic locations that are meaningful to my clients.

When shooting weddings, is your style more traditional or photojournalistic?
My style is a blend of the more traditional posed formal look combined with those fun candid spontaneous shots. With each job I do,  I aim to tell a story through the images I capture.  During the "quiet" parts of an event I love staying in the background, being an unobtrusive observer and anticipating special moments.

What kind of equipment do you use?
I shoot with professional digital Canon equipment and plenty of back-up equipment. 

What will my financial investment be to hire you as my photographer?
My wedding package prices for the 2021 season start at $1800.  I will also quote you a price for smaller/short weddings.  My portrait session fee is $250 which includes a $100 credit towards your order.  My headshot rates are $150.  My event photography rates are $150/hour with a two-hour minimum booking.  Eight percent tax is added to all bookings.  Please contact me so we can discuss details & design a package to suit your specific needs.

Why should I hire you?
Your pictures are important.  It's important to choose the right professional photographer. I was born with a camera in my hand (almost).
I LOVE what I do and I've been told I've got a warm personality.  I bring a fresh energy to everything I photograph.  I am truly passionate about using the art of photography to capture moments that last a lifetime.
