Using a broad set of photographic disciplines I offer the skills that ensure all of the treasured moments of your day are artistically journaled. I had a career as a music photographer and a landscape photographer first. These two styles of shooting are essential in my style as a wedding photographer. When photographers lay out a shot we perfect the background first, I just did that for about 10 years! Challenging lighting? I was the primary photographer for an outdoor, all-day and into the night, music festival for 7 years.
My experience, skills and equipment allow me to not only capture you, your family and guests beautifully, but also the gorgeous landscapes behind you, the intuition to freeze the emotional moments, and the ability to jump into the party at night and capture the fun.
I bring my 100% to shooting weddings. I know I am making art of a day that will live in you and your family's memories through these photos for a lifetime and beyond.
I live in Boulder, Colorado but shoot in Northern California as well (my family lives in Sonoma County). I don't charge a fee for locations within a 2-hour drive, but will sometimes request a hotel room before or after the wedding depending on the timing of the day.
I shot my first wedding in 2012 and have photographed 26 as a 2nd photographer and over 30 as the lead photographer.
romantic, personalized and funky
My packages range from $2,000 to $4,500. My prices are low for what I bring to the table, but I like bargains, so I believe my clients do as well.
I don't have a studio, but happy to meet somewhere or meet virtually.
I have a Bachelors of Science degree in Studio Photography from Syracuse University's, S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. I am also a teacher of Photoshop, Lightroom and run monthly Photo Critiques. My professional memberships are; PPA (Professional Photographers of America), NPS (Nikon Professional Services), WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International), SLR Lounge, KelbyOne & Fearless Photographers. My photography education has never paused. I am always reading books, attending workshops and conferences, studying online and entering contests to further my capacities as a photographer.
