It’s sophisticated fun! I love both natural light and using portable flash. I take a photo-journalistic but creative approach. I strive to tell the story of your love using details, the big picture, and of course emotive portraiture.
I am a Nikon shooter with my eye on Fuji. I have a D-750 Full Frame Body, a back up D-600 full frame body with battery grip, 2 Nikon SB-900 speed lights, 1 SB-910 speed light, a variety of prime lenses, a Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 lens, a Nikor 105mm macro, flash modifiers & triggers, light stands, and lots of back up batteries. I also have a Fuji XT2 with their full X Series lens line up.
I am based in Tampa Florida but I consistently shoot everywhere between Sarasota and Dade City. As I've said I am more than happy to travel ANYWHERE! I’ve photographed in Colorado, Oregon, Washington State, NYC, Nashvile, Iceland, Turks & Caicos, Australia, Thailand, Bali, and Chile! My passport is up to date and always begging for some new stamps. 2017 will bring me St. Lucia so far! Please contact me for more details on specific travel fees.
I work either solo or with an assistant for holding lighting equipment etc. However, I will be the only photographer capturing your wedding or session in almost all cases. I am confident in my abilities to cover the most valuable moments and details of your day and prefer to stay in control of making sure all priorities are covered. This also ensures that the work and quality I deliver is consistent. I take a lot of time and effort at every stage leading to the big day or session to make sure everyone is properly prepared and that a suitable timeline is ready. I say “most cases” because every wedding is unique and sometimes there is a need to divide and conquer. Circumstances in which I will suggest bringing on a second shooter would be: if your wedding is VERY large (200 guests, more than 10 in your wedding party, etc), if your getting ready, ceremony, and reception locations are all separate and/or across town from one another, if covering your cocktail hour is SUPER important, and if you have an interesting ceremony location that would benefit having someone in the rafters sort of speak. I would be happy to share with you full wedding galleries to illustrate what I deliver.
Engagement and portrait clients can expect to see between 80 and 120 images from their 2 hour session lovingly re-touched and ready for printing. Wedding clients can expect an average of 100 final edited images per hour of wedding day coverage.
My coveregae on the wedding day includes my time and talent as well as all of your images at high resolution with a print release. For portrait and commercial clients your session fee may or may not include any print released digital files. The rights to the digital files may be purchased individually or in total.
Sessions, such as portrait, maternity, boudoir etc may only be scheduled on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursdays (Fridays and Saturdays are reserved for wedding events, and Sunday/Monday are strictly for office work and editing).
A note about inclement weather: For sessions, once the shoot has started, it cannot be rescheduled. If inclement weather is predicted, we must decide together before the shoot begins to either postpone/reschedule or continue with the shoot that day. In the case of weddings and events I am experienced in working around and with various challenging weather conditions. I also carry supplies to protect my gear and even a clear umbrella for you to pose under. I'm happy to risk my gear and get out there, hopefully you're adventurous too!
