I'm a believer in good, honest story-telling - and a wedding is the perfect format for this to happen. It's the one day that finally arrives which has consumed your energy for so long, yet you still have no real control over. Capturing that wild experience is what I love - natural and unscripted. I work hard to get to know you, I'd like to be someone you can hang out and grab a beer with... becoming more than just a photographer. This enables me to create that important connection where you can enjoy your day and relax knowing your images are in good hands.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?
