Of course wedding photography should be amazing and beautiful... but what do our clients love? us! My wife and I are professional, on-time, friendly and we have lots of little surprises to show we care. No couple wants to feel stressed out, or uncomfortable on their wedding day. So, we work with each couple multiple times before the wedding and work on a timeline for them to maximize their day and to be able to enjoy it! By the time the wedding day comes, they are so comfortable and they just soak it all up. We love what we do, we are dedicated to our education, networking with our wedding team and to creating the absolute best photography experience of their lives!

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

We established our wedding photography business in 2012. I began shooting weddings with my first being a B&W film wedding in 1996. I take only 10 clients per year maximum, and have been privileged to shoot 20+ weddings.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Coming from a background in fashion/modeling and living in Tahoe, I love the combination of both, which tends to create a fashion forward artistic images. We intentionally raising the level of emotion by being fun with our clients, and creates a unique style all our own.

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

Typically our most popular collection will include hourly coverage, online ordering and proofing within 2 weeks, handmade fine-art wedding book and flash drive and digital images with limited copyright usage.

We custom built a home in Tahoe in 2014 and although we don't shoot at this location we meet clients here. We absolutely love skype/facetime to web conference with our clients.

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

We regularly invest in classes, workshops and seminars to further our business and photographic skill-set. Our studio highly values education and we do not believe that talent alone is enough. We are members of PPA and are working on attaining membership with the Master Photographers Association UK. We are the representative wedding photographer for Elite Wedding Team Tahoe.

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

I love dogs and cruises! My wife and I hang out every chance we get, and relaxing at the beaches in Tahoe or watching the snow fall are all we need for a great time.
