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

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.
