Fine art documentary photography

I have been a ardent photographer my whole life. I’ve almost always carried a camera and taken pictures wherever I’ve been. My professional photography experience includes portraits, weddings, architecture, travel, landscape, events, commercial, industrial. Over the years, a constant theme has been capturing intimate artistic images of people on location that tell a visual story with emotional impact; using an unobtrusive, candid, photojournalistic approach to create elegant compositions with strong graphic elements; with warm natural light.

My approach is artistic, creative, photojournalistic - unobtrusively documenting the natural beauty and emotion of the day. My goal is to present your wedding story as a photographic work of art. I’m particularly fond of casual intimate weddings in natural outdoor settings. Examples of my work can be seen on my blog at

I work deliberately to capture great images. So, quality counts more than quantity. Nonetheless, I typically shoot 60+ images per hour of coverage; after editing, this typically results in about 30+ images per hour. So, for a full day (ten hours), there would be about 300+ great images available. Of those, some 50 to 150 might be selected to create a complete story of your day (for example, in an album or coffee table book).

My wedding-day photography typically includes:
- full digital photography coverage of your wedding day for whatever period you select.
- processing, editing, and manually adjustment of images by the photographer for exposure, color, white balance, contrast, sharpness.
- CD or thumb drive with high-resolution images (photographer-selects).
- license for personal use -- to share with friends and family, and to print yourself or have printed wherever you choose; photographer retains copyright and rights for all other uses.

A complimentary engagement photo session at an outdoor location of your choice is offered with any wedding booking of four or more hours of coverage. An engagement session also is available on a fee basis, with the fee credited back to you when you select me as your wedding photographer. The engagement session will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time, with some flexibility depending on weather.
