I love figuring out the puzzle of photographing a wedding day. Wedding photographers have to do all types of photography in a 6-12 hour day including: portrait, action, low light & indoor, details, landscapes and set-ups. It is a high-intensity situation. I was a downhill ski racer, so I love the adrenaline rush of a wedding! 
 
As much as I like to gush over a gorgeous sunset or soothing seascape, human beings are hands down my favorite subject. Weddings in particular are epicenters for smart, interesting, impeccably dressed people. And every trip down the aisle is unique. No matter the style or setting, I love making all who are in attendance look beautiful and timeless. Weddings are emotional and sometimes messy and unpredictable--but in the very best ways possible. As the wedding photographer, I am the director making sure everyone is happy and enjoying the day. It's a wonderful responsibility and one that I take very seriously (while keeping an excellent sense of humor, of course).

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

I am located in Burlington Vermont. I do not charge a travel fee for weddings in Vermont or upstate New York with in 100 miles of Burlington Vermont.

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

I have been in business since 2008. I have shot over 150 weddings as the main photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

In a (hyphenated) word: Portrait-journalism.  
 
I like a nice blend of traditional and photojournalistic styles. I will only pose you when it won’t interfere with the natural progression of the day. My photos have a timeless and elegant quality, and I tend to steer clear of trendy editing techniques or Instagram-looking photos. This means you, your family, your kids and your grandkids will adore these photos.

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

My most popular package is an 8-hour wedding day.  
You will receive a gallery of photos on my hosting site www.shootproof.com. These images will be: High-resolution – print ready, Non-water marked, Edited, Lightly retouched including skin smoothing. You will own the rights to the images that you receive. You should expect roughly 75 images per hour of coverage.

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

On a personal note, I love the relationships that I build with the couple’s family and friends, my associate photographers & assistants, the hair and makeup team, the coordinators, and other vendors. Putting on a wedding is totally a team effort. I love that I get to be the part of the team that makes the day’s memories last forever.
