ABOUT MY SERVICES
A GENERAL OVERVIEW of MY SERVICES
My most common services are Weddings, Headshots, and Portraiture, both on an individual and commercial basis. I also provide photography services for Events, Family, Engagements, Weddings, Live Shows, Birthdays, Reunions, Celebrations, and Commercial Product & Real Estate. I’ve created a very unique business model which allows me to bring my Studio to You! I have a completely mobile operation and if you have a great location near you, or a separate location we can agree on together, you do not need to come to me; I’ll come to you.
All my photography services include phone and email consultations. I do reserve the right to choose and edit only the best images from our session, unless an agreement to different terms is arranged, beforehand. I do require a retainer to reserve your desired date and time, as it compensates for work rendered prior to our session and allows everyone to be far more committed to the project. All retainers are non-refundable, but are applied towards the total cost of your session. It is best to contact me as soon as you can to reserve the most convenient date and time for your session. In the event of a cancellation by either party, the retainer will be applied to a re-scheduled session of the same type. I also provide options regarding investment opportunities and extended payment plans.
All my prices are starting rates for the most common types of photography services I provide. These prices are subject to change based on factors such as travel, location, pets, number of people, time required, wardrobe changes, hair / makeup, etc. Providing as much detail as possible will not only help me generate the most accurate and fair quote for the both of us, but it will also allow me to visualize what you have in mind for your session which will lead to a more successful production. Contact me here or through any of my websites and once again, thank you for your time and I wish you the very best!

TYPES of PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES
A wedding is one of the most memorable days in the lives of a couple. It is a day that will never be forgotten by you or the attendees to the ceremony and this is why regular pictures just won’t cut it. Wedding photography is a very specialized type of photography. A full wedding photography session package involves taking photographs of pre-wedding ceremony events, the wedding ceremony, and reception including all guests and participants. Wedding photography is very dynamic and involves more than simply snapping a few pictures. Only the highest quality and most original photographs are selected. Hundreds of photographs are taken in order to capture the most important moments. These moments are usually those that are of the bride and groom, the rest of the wedding party, and the family members. I take lots of candid shots as well, such as guests goofing around, the little girl dancing on her father’s feet, and if it happens, the bride smashing that cake into the face of her husband. These are many times the most treasured photographs from the entire wedding ceremony. Besides photographing people, I snap pictures of inanimate objects such as the chapel or venue’s architecture, the cake, the bride’s gown, and of course, the rings. Brides might want to consider a truly unique and memorable post wedding photography session called the “Trash the Dress” session after the wedding ceremony is over, and all important pictures have been taken with the dress. This usually involves the bride wearing her dress in unusual or even dirty environments and me photographing it. A bride might choose to have her photograph taken while frolicking down the street with boots on and a cow girl hat, working on a greasy tractor at the farm, or simply just laying in a field. The options are endless and I am completely open to suggestions that will speak to the bride’s true character.
Headshot Photography is generally a medium close-up image with the subject looking into the lens, used primarily for actors, models, singers, business, and social media profiles like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Online Dating Services. I'd also like to bring special attention to a special kind of headshot for actors and models known as "The Character Specific Headshot." Having worked in the entertainment business for many years, I understand the arduous task of auditioning . . . and it all starts with the Headshot. I’ve been involved both in front and behind the camera, including casting, and the one thing that can truly make an actor stand out is that his/her Headshot has character. It’s the Headshot that gets you in the door and earns you that opportunity to interview. From my experience, most Headshots use a similar format and they all tend to look the same; no one really stands out. This is why I believe that actors should, aside from the standard Headshot which does have its place in the industry, look at getting ‘Character Specific Headshots’ to add to their portfolio. If you’re submitting a Headshot for the lead role of a guy playing a Lumberjack, the business / clean cut looking Headshot probably isn’t the best option. How about the role of a deranged psychotic woman; that big smiling headshot probably won’t get you noticed as easy as a frenzied looking one will. The industry is changing. If you have a role you want to submit for and are unsure if the Headshots you have will work, or you want a new look to add to your portfolio, contact me and let’s take a look at your situation. We will work on the best idea for a new Headshot specific for what you’re after.
Portrait Photography, or Portraiture, is a medium (or close-up) to full body image incorporating the context of the environment used primarily to capture the expression, personality, and mood of the subject(s). Valued immensely by models, actors, singers, songwriters, musicians, music groups, and corporate executives for publicity, and simply by anyone who wishes to preserve a beautiful moment.
When it comes to having great photographs for your one-time special event, wedding, birthday party, or corporate/ holiday party, I'll be there, on time, rain or shine. Before the day of the event, I will be sure to collaborate and familiarize myself with what’s going to happen during the event so I can know the key moments that need capturing on film and/or video.
Many brides schedule bridal portraits apart from the wedding day photos to ensure lovely portraits because a bridal session allows for the gift of time. We can shoot for a couple hours to get the best and most beautiful portraits possible whereas, at a wedding, we are fortunate to get in maybe 5 minutes for bridal photos. This allows us to carefully craft poses are tweak the images to perfection. However, there is another great reason for bridal portraits. One of the best ways a bride can prepare herself for her wedding day is to try on the dress for a few hours to test everything out. Bridal portraits provide the opportunity to make sure the dress is fitting right and to fix anything that isn’t working. Not only will you look stunning on your wedding day, but you'll feel incredible, confident, and more relaxed which will yield beautiful images to cherish forever.
Engagement photography is what helps show a couple’s love and admiration for each other. These are the images that create awareness for their upcoming wedding ceremony. As your photographer, it is important for me to collaborate with you and to research what it is that brings you together and of course, the most important things you love to share together, respectively of course. ;-) You and I both want your engagement pictures to be creative, interesting, entertaining, love-struck, and most of all, satisfying for the entire family and your friends, too. This is the beginning of a new chapter in both your lives, so allow me to capture your most beautiful moments together to take with you for the rest of your days.
You're Only a Senior Once! Preserve this moment forever, and not just for you, but for your family and friends, too. Express who you are and let's focus on your achievements. This is your moment!

The family portrait is one of the most cherished & beloved items in a family's home. Of all the memories we hold on to throughout life, the ones we never let go of are those of our family. So, while life is steadily racing by and the ones we love are growing older, don't forget to preserve these moments together, forever.
Live performance / concert photography is truly exciting. I mean, I’m standing mere feet away from other artists like myself, whom are passionate about their craft, and I’m composing images of them. I can take hundreds of pictures in order to capture that perfect moment. As a passionate music lover myself, this is a true joy! So, if you're a singer, songwriter, musician, band, or entire orchestra, simply check out my work below and if you like it and have a live show you want me to capture for you, contact me; I’d love to work for you!
