Weddings can be stressful events.
So much passion goes into planning every little detail. But sometimes the day just doesn’t go according to plan. When the limo is late, the flowers wilt, or raindrops start to fall, the last thing you need is your photographer adding to the stress.
Other than their groom, brides will spend more of their day with the photographer than anyone else at the wedding. What you want is a calm professional who can create great images without interfering with your priorities.
In order to remain calm under stress your photographer needs the confidence that comes from a depth of experience. Having photographed 160+ weddings over a 30 year career gives me the confidence to deal with anything.
Calmness and confidence free the spirit to be creative, and tuned in to the emotional drama being played out in front of the lens. This is how compelling images are created. How significant moments are captured. How the real story of your day gets told.
Let me tell the story of your wedding; calmly, confidently, and creatively.

Why Hire a Professional Photographer?
These days lots of people have good digital cameras. They take really nice pictures. You have seen them on Facebook. Truth be told, with today’s technology just about anyone can produce some excellent photographs…some, or even most of the time. But there is so much more to wedding photography than getting some good photos of most aspects of your once-in-a-lifetime day.
Weddings entail several difficult photographic challenges that cause many very capable amateurs to struggle and fail. Specialized equipment and finely honed technique are required to craft excellent images in cramped (messy) bridal prep rooms, dark churches and reception halls, and harshly lit outdoor settings.
You also want someone who can work quickly and efficiently under pressure, and not get in the way or lose his cool. Managing large family groups and directing posing that will flatter everyone in the picture is a whole other skill set. Most photographers don’t realize how difficult that is until they try it once.
A professional photographer has all this under control, while at the same time is watching for those significant candid moments that will really tell your story.
Engagement sessions are included with most wedding packages. This is a special portrait experience for you and your fiancée. Together we will determine the perfect location and wardrobe. During the session I will teach you how to pose so that you will look your very best. We will learn how to work together smoothly and efficiently. Think of it as a wedding photography rehearsal. This gets any “I hate having my picture taken” awkwardness out of the way before the actual wedding day. You will learn how to relax and enjoy being photographed.
Within a week of your session you will be invited to the studio to view your images on the big screen and will be guided in selecting your favourites. This is the same process we will use to choose your wedding pictures.
Images from your engagement session are great to use in newspaper/on-line announcements, wedding invitations, or to display as prints or in a slide show at bridal showers or your reception.
You can have your images printed on a wide range of products, from ornaments and key chains, to framed fine art prints and gallery wrapped canvases.
