I'm based in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and do not charge travel fees for weddings within 150 miles. For destination weddings, travel fees cover the cost of travel, lodging, rental car and per diem. Often times my destination clients cover a majority of the travel fees with earned credit card points.
I began documenting weddings in 2006 and since then I've worked with more than 150 couples to capture a visual story of their wedding days.
Coming from a newspaper and freelance photojournalism career, my style is definitely aimed at capturing moments and providing a complete visual story of a wedding day.
My average client invests $5,200 for their wedding photography which includes nine hours of coverage, an online gallery to view, order and share images, high-resolution fully retouched images, and a custom-designed wedding album.
I meet with local couples in my studio. For my destination wedding inquiries, I use Zoom or other online video services.
Aside from being part of the amazing group of artists on Fearless Photographers, I'm also a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association, International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, and the Professional Photographers of America.
Beyond great images, my couples always mention the peace of mind I provided on their wedding days. This is acheived through planning, collaboration, and knowing the couples on a level that goes beyond the consultation.
