There is little more beautiful in this world than two people who share a deep love for one another making the commitment of marriage. I feel absolutely honored to be a part of each and every "beginning" that I document, and this is what drives me to provide my clients with the absolute best in terms of photography and overall experience. Every great love story deserves to be preserved.
You have to be completely comfortable with your Wedding Photographer. This is the person who will be documenting one of the most important and memorable days of your life, and, let's face it, it's a day that goes by quickly. Wedding photography is an art form unto itself - there are all sorts of photographers out there who specialize in different things, but I consider Wedding photography a serious endeavor. This type of work requires someone who is comfortable, confident, prompt, easily adaptable, friendly and courteous, and completley comfortable with their equipment, ever changing light conditions and different settings. There are no "do overs" in this line of work.
I meet with all of my clients ahead of time so that I can get to know them, they can get to know me, we can go over "shot lists", timing, location details, etc. I want to learn about YOU as a couple so that I can give you the best in terms of lasting memories - tell me your vision, tell me what makes your heart melt and makes you smile, what makes you laugh and makes you cry happy tears - I will do my best to provide you with images that bring out all of these emotions. I promise to provide you with images that show the authentic YOU.
Wedding planning is stressful enough, so I have simplified my "wedding packages" in order to make choosing something that works for you as easy as possible. Additions can be made to each package depending upon your needs, so that in the end you are left with something that is tailored specifically to your special day.

Approximately 3 weeks from the date of your wedding, your images will be available for viewing (in many cases sooner). All images will be artistically edited and will have gone through initial retouching. At this point, you will have the opportunity to view your "proofs" and elect to ask for additional editing or retouching, changes in tone (color to black and white, vintage to ethereal, etc.), etc., on specific images. In most cases, your photos - from wedding day to final product - will be available to you within 4 weeks. Unlike many photographers, I do provide my clients with all of their images on a thumb drive and the digital rights to print for personal use (though photos may not be altered by the client). While I prefer that you purchase your prints and wall art through me (as I do provide affordable options and can gaurantee quality), the photographs of your day should be in your hands. I also bring along an experienced photographer's assistant on all of my wedding shoots to ensure that things move along smoothly, no time is wasted, no "pre-arranged shots" are missed and that my clients get the best possible experience. If your wedding requires a 2nd Shooter, I have several that I can bring along for an additional fee.
** Please note that I do not charge for travel expenses for most of San Luis Obispo County and the North end of Santa Barbara County, however fees may apply if your event is outside of my normal travel zone. I also do "destination and travel weddings" - please inquire about additional pricing for these options. Dates book up quickly, so call in advance so we can chat about your special date. If you have a special request or unconventional event, let's chat...I'm here for you!
