Engagement photos should capture the essence of you and your relationship together. Consequently, I take time to get that perfect, creative shot.
Bridals are my specialty. I want you to be as beautiful, radiant and YOU as possible! I take a creative approach to bridals; I want to take pictures that will match your personality. Consequently, bridals get extra attention. The photosessions are considerably longer, and I take significant time in my digital darkroom to make sure that every detail is perfect.

People often ask about the difference between my proofs and art print files. For starters, as a skilled photographer, my images out of camera are 99% where they need to be. Most of the magic of my images happens in-camera, not on a computer. That being said, I shoot in a digital negative format that has to be developed before it can be printed. When I "develop" my images and create printable proofs, I usually don't make many changes. I just give a general boost to color and contrast. From there, when I create an art print, I will clean up any little problem areas with the file (i.e. scratches on faces or stray grass, etc.). Then I will do a detailed edit of the file, perhaps adding a texture or doing vintage toning. In the end, the difference between the proof and art print edit of the same file can be very subtle. There is a difference, but generally the difference isn't all that dramatic. On occasion, an image will shift more noticeably for a variety of reasons, but that is rare. If you wonder how much your images will shift, please just ask me. I can tell even as I'm taking the photo how different the proof will be from the final art print edit.
