Styles of wedding photography vary enormously. I take a more documentary photojournalistic approach, preferring to stay unobtrusive and non-invasive as much as I can. I avoid overly posed photographs, preferring the decisive moments that reflect the emotions and spirit of your wedding day. I have a relaxed working style that encompasses both the formal and candid moments as well as the multitude of details that create a truly memorable wedding. This is documentary wedding photography as it happens which means capturing the funny, the artistic, the glamorous, the memories and indeed any group and family photographs that you want. Because a wedding is a one-time event, your wedding photographer must be able to anticipate the action and also be prepared for unexpected twists. Wedding photography is both exhausting and fun as I am always in search of original angles while still keeping a ‘fly on the wall’ approach. Communication and planning time lines before the event will alleviate much of the stress that can sometimes be associated with wedding photography. An ability to tactfully take charge helps – particularly when photographing large groups or families. I have photographed weddings of every religion, nationality, and sexual orientation and my open-minded approach to wedding photography and life makes me approachable and honest.
In 2010 Washington DC legalized same sex marriage. I applaud DC !! I am incredibly pleased to offer my services for gay weddings and to the gay and lesbian community as a whole. Gay wedding photography is, guess what – just like straight wedding photography!! Two people, in love, committing to a life together in front of family and friends. I am a photographer for gay weddings and I am happy to say there are many wedding vendors welcoming the gay community.
Wedding Photography Prices
Wedding photography is an investment. It’s not only a financial investment, it’s an investment of your trust in my expertise and 15 years of professional experience as a wedding photographer. Memories, decisive moments – photographs which transcend the event and become images of great sentimental and artistic value – that is what separates good wedding photography and elevates it to great wedding photography. As your wedding photographer, my goal is to bring you great wedding photography within a wedding pricing structure that is simple and flexible together with a working relationship with that is fun and relaxed. My wedding photography pricing allows you to create an individual collection of wedding photography services based on the number of hours of coverage that suit your event. You can select the wedding photography services that work for you without those that are not right for your wedding or budget. The high resolution wedding photographs burned to DVD are included in the cost of your wedding photography. I can’t overstate what a HUGE value this represents financially and for future generations. Each wedding photograph is edited, color corrected and a black and white copy of each photograph is also included. I provide reproduction rights which means that you can print whatever you want for your personal use. It’s all entirely up to you! This flexibility means that you can create your own wedding albums, or I can provide you with expertly designed wedding albums from some of the top wedding album manufacturers. I use wedding albums by companies such as Finao, Seldex and West Coast albums. Of course I am available for engagements photography or to photograph rehearsals and gown fittings, but as before – it’s your call, your wedding and your budget. Other things you may want to know. I use an in house system for on line viewing and have a team of assistants who work with me. I would be happy to create a custom collection of wedding photography services for you. Seasonal and weekday discounts are available.
Engagement photography? I’m pleased to provide engagement photography, and have a number of engagement packages to choose from. Some of these engagement packages include the hi res photographs, and some do not. I would be happy to discuss these options with you.
I specialize in fine art lifestyle portrait photography. I specialize in fresh and unique maternity portraits, newborn portraits, baby portraits and family portraits.My subjects include maternity, newborns, infants, babies, toddlers, kids children and families. Maternity and new born portraiture was a natural extension of my work and grew from a demand from many brides and their friends to create artistic images that would become a loved and cherished heirloom – the essence of a small child’s spirit. When I visit clients homes I love to see family history and stories displayed on their walls. However I have often wondered why sometimes clients fill their walls with paintings from department stores instead of portraits of their family and children. Why would you hang a department store painting of somewhere you’ve never been rather than an image of your family? Why not fill your walls with the Art of Childhood? These fleeting moments will NEVER come again.. Life is Art, fill your walls with the Art of Childhood! If you have been searching for a maternity photographer, newborn photographer, baby photographer or family photographer – then look no further.
Here’s a bit more information about our portrait photography.
Maternity Portrait Photography
Also known as Pregnancy Portraits or Mother-to-Be Portraits, the maternity portrait is designed to capture the wonder and beauty of the female form during the last months of pregnancy. I recommend scheduling the maternity portraits for some time after the 33rd week. Depending on how you feel while pregnant, you may want to wait until you are 35 or 36 weeks along to really show off those curves!.
Newborn Portrait Photography
Newborns are best photographed in the first few weeks of life, therefore reserving sessions prior to due date is recommended. If your newborn arrives early or late, I will work to reschedule your session as early as possible. It is important to capture all the newness of your baby. They have tiny, clenched hands and newborn curl. During your newborn portrait session, time is allotted for breaks, keeping a relaxed mood for everyone concerned. Newborn photography is such a lovely aspect of my work. As your newborn photographer my goal is to create wonderful portraits of your newborn within an environment which is relaxing and enjoyable.
Once your baby reaches three months old, it is time to schedule an infant portrait session. No longer a sleepy newborn, your baby is now alert and participating in his/her world. Documenting your baby’s first year of life with several portrait sessions will ensure that you don’t miss any of the amazing changes they will go through. I also recommend an infant portrait session at the time when baby is able to sit up. I find they are very engaged with their world at this stage.
Children’s Portrait Photography
Children’s portrait sessions capture the splendor and magic of childhood. Allowing your child to play and explore their surroundings, these sessions are designed for your toddler or older child to have a great time, which in turn, results in great photographs. I normally suggest an outdoor location where we can capture them engaged in their world.
Family Portrait Photography
Family portraits are so much more fun than they once were. Gone are the stiff photo studio styles. Today’s family portrait photographers mostly work outdoors, working to photograph your family in a way which says who you are, the love between family, parents and kids. In today’s world, family portraiture still has an important role to play. As your family photographer I work with you to capture the relationships that really matter.
