Yes, I do. I’m located in downtown Royal Oak, MI by appointment only.
I use Nikon D4 and D700 with a variety of lenses.
I love fashion and fine art, but also people and emotion. My work is stylized and has a fashion edge to it, with the just the right amount of drama. I look for light and moments. My brides are my absolute inspiration, but I also put a huge emphasis on documenting the emotions of the day in a nonintrusive and moving way. Mom and Dad’s tears, the bridesmaids laughter and all the joys that come from an amazing event like a wedding!
Yes, about 4 weeks after the day of the event you will get edited and retouched high resolution digital files.
Day of event
Yes, you do. I can also recommend printing places for high quality prints.
Aside from the formals with your family, I try to stay away from any kind of other lists with work from other photographers. I would want to create unique imagery for my clients and not copy other people’s work. I think trust is very important and knowing my style and work ethic you can rest assured I will do my very best to be creative and provide you with beautiful and meaningful photography.
Yes please! It’s usually a very long day and this will help keep me smiling. Some venues have their vendors in separate rooms, however just to make sure I am not missing anything during my meal it’ll be ideal if I’m sitting in the main room.
Rehearsal dinner is available and can be added to any package. Please inquire for pricing and availability
It depends on the schedule of your day, how big you Bridal Party is and how many locations you have. More travel time is less shooting time. I will work with whatever timeline you give me but more time for portraits means more images and more variety. Your wedding will only happen once so it’s important we plan appropriately and use the time wisely.
Many couples opt for a first look for a variety of reasons. Most common one is Reception following the Ceremony right away. It gives very little to no time for the couple to have an enjoyable, not rushed portrait session. Doing a First Look puts you in control of your day and gives you more time . I also find the First Look to be much more intimate and heartfelt. It’s only the two of you (and me) but the WOW factor of walking down the isle is not lost. Thats where the guests will see you for the first time! I can absolutely advise you on whether or not this is the thing for you.
Absolutely. In most cases immediately following the ceremony. All family is already there and it’s proven to be the easiest way to get all groups together.
