Everyone says they're fun, or passionate about Wedding Photography, but how many can honestly say they've devoted their lives to it? 
I've been photographing weddings since age 14 and have seen a lot. 
My images have won literally hundreds of awards. 
That's not what's important in a wedding photographer though, trust me. 
You want a photographer that you can connect with, that you can find mutual trust and respect in. That's how amazing photographs are created, by amazing people. It takes a great photographer and great clients to create great photographs. 
Wedding Photography is storytelling, the happiness, elation, anxiety, stress and absolute joy all come together creating a wonderful narrative of your day, and they're all unique, just like you. 
Let me tell your story, through my eyes and my camera.

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

We don't charge a travel fee for anything within about an hour and a half from St Petersburg, Florida.

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

I've owned several photography businesses, this last iteration has been in business about 12 years. I have personally photographed about 3,000 weddings. I stopped counting years ago. I began photographing weddings full time in 1984.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

“Classic Romanticism with a Modern Twist Elevated by Insightful Observation of the Romantic Rituals of Humanity with a Touch of Humor". Heh, check out our work, naming our style doesn't really tell you what we do.

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

Typical? They're all different, but a 6 hour package is probably our most popular. Comes with 2 photographers, an Engagement Session, and a real Album, not some cheap flimsy paged thing, a true Coffee Table Album. It runs about $2100.00 as of this writing.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

We work from our home, and trust me, you don't want to meet us there (we have pets). Starbucks makes better coffee and has more space to show off our work for you. I'd rather not use Skype to be honest. I mean, you don't need to see what I look like, lol. I'm happy to talk on the phone about your day though.

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

Whew, long list incoming: 
3 Times Tampa Area Photographer of the Year from Tampa Area Professional Photographers Association 
3 Times Sarasota Area Photographer of the Year from Bay Professional Photographers Association 
3 Times "Top 10 Photographer" statewide for Florida Professional Photographers 
Photographer of the year in International Print Competition from Professional Photographers of America 
I have an image in the Professional Photographers of America Permanent Loan collection 
Craftsman Degree from Professional Photographers of America 
Florida Degree of Photographic Excellence from Florida Professional Photographers 
Kodak Gallery Award 
Platform Speaker for Ohio Professional Photographers Convention 
Instructor at the Florida School for FloridaProfessional Photographers 
3 Times, Mentor for Florida Professional Photographers 
Honestly, I probably forgot something. Check out my work :)

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I am a Professional Wedding Photographer. That's all I am. I don't pretend to be a hipster, I don't make grand claims I can't back up. I'm a smartass. I'm sarcastic. I'm dedicated, and honest, and I'll be the best vendor you hire for your wedding.
