Amanda & David
Married October 19th, 2013
"You were very responsive and flexible. Your eye and style are fantastic and you are very calm and collected. Since the day we booked over the phone long distance, you made us feel very confident and relaxed in choosing your service. We saw preview photos the very next day and we LOVE them. Your value is...more "
Sarah & Blair

"You made our wedding day stress free, allowing us to enjoy every aspect, while knowing you would capture our story perfectly. From shots in the farm field to standing on the horse pasture fence, every moment was creative and exciting."
Audra & Albert
Married September 1st, 2012
"I cannot give enough positive feedback for your photography. From the beginning my fiance and I felt at ease. You inspired confidence. You are very responsive to emails, extremely flexible and understanding of what we wanted for our day. That's before we saw your photos! Your work is truly incredible. And what others have said about you staying out of the way could not be more true...I know my fiance, who really appreciates his privacy-especially before something as serious as our wedding ceremony-felt at ease with you as you really let the moments happen and captured them without getting in the middle of it all."
Aubrey & Paul
Married June 29th, 2012

I love both of the pictures--Paul & I especially love the first one where we are walking down the aisle-- Paul says he loves my smile in my vows, and man was I smiling big (and so was he :) Thank you SO much!!!! We are planning on using the first image as a thank you card for those people who celebrated our wedding w us--yay!!!"

Laura & Tim
Married May 24th, 2009
"It was a great experience working with you. You were very unobtrusive and gave us beautiful, candid photography. You were very flexible with all of our requests, and we would highly recommend your work. You were on time, courteous and professional, and we received the photos on time as promised. We were very impressed by your candid style that captured the special moments of our day."
Vera & Dmitriy
Married August 17th, 2008
"There are many great shots. We appreciate all your work. You captured a great deal of stuff. It's nice to look at the pictures and think back to a nice warm sunny day."
Julia & Ankit
Married May 2nd, 2008
"The most important thing about your work is that you made our wedding day special and memorable. You are not only a great photographer but also a really pleasant and understanding person. As far as photography goes, you are a pro. The pictures you captured were really special and unique and show that you have a great eye. Most of the time you were "invisible" and didn't make us feel self-conscious (like a lot of other photographers can). This was great since my husband and I could just be ourselves, without worrying about the camera (and this is important if you don't want your wedding album to look fake-posed). It seems that without a lot of effort you were able to capture all the romance and joy of our special day...more "
