We want your wedding day to be fun, not some kind of death march with endless line ups for portraits, staged "candid" photographs, and constant worry about the time. Instead, we want to capture real moments from throughout your day, the kinds of images which will tell the story of who you are on your wedding that you can look back on for many decades to come. We hang around with you and your friends, photographing what actually happens-the funny and emotional and, yes, even the bittersweet moments that help to tell the story of your lives together. 
Your wedding is a story that you've been making for months and years, one that expresses itself in your choices on your wedding day, the most important of which is your choice in a partner for life. But it also includes the favors you leave on the tables, the funny socks you wear, the cartoon character t-shirt hidden under your tuxedo, the family bible you carry with your bouquet, the locket with a photograph of your favorite grandmother that hangs around your neck. And it includes beautiful portraits of you as a couple, interacting, looking amazing, and being in love. 
It is a great honor to be invited into a couple's life, even if just for a day, and we pay homage to the trust you give us by honestly, compassionately, and beautifully documenting one of the most important days of your lives.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

We are based in Madison and do not charge a travel fee within 45 miles of Madison. We charged standard milage to other cities in Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I've been a full-time photographer for eight years and a part-time photographer for more than 10 years before that. I've photographed more than 150 weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Our approach is documentary in nature, focusing on the storytelling of the day.

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

Our standard packages include: Extensive consultation as you put your wedding plan together to maximize the quality of your photography and your wedding, myself and an assistant covering the day, An archival wedding album, Sneak peeks the week after your wedding, Online gallery to view and share your images, and High resolution digital files delivered digitally with printing release.

Do you have a studio where we can meet in-person?

We would love to meet you in our Madison studio, but we're also happy to take you to coffee or snacks at a convenient and quiet cafe. I also am happy to meet via Skype, FaceTime, or on the phone.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I am a member of PPA and WPJA, and have taken workshops with Chrisman Studios, Jerry Ghionis, and Denis Reggie. I am a Certified Professional Photographer as well.
