STUDIO CONSULTATIONS AVAILABLE BY APPOINTMENT IN WELLSBURG, WV.
Give me a chance to get to know you. Give yourself a chance to get to know me! There are hundreds and hundreds of photographers out there! I’m unlike most wedding photographers you'll find! I want to hear EVERYTHING about your love story and the big day you're planning! There is no obligation to book. Feel free to fill out the contact form below to request my investment guide for more information!
If you'd prefer to reach out to me directly, you can email me at:
No. The engagement session is complementary and it cannot be credited, refunded, or transferred. This session is extremely important to us. Even in the event that you do not need engagement pictures, I usually insist we meet up anyway to get to know one another. We may as well take pictures too, right?!
Yes. I offer three different collection options. The base collection starts at $2,300.
My collections include 8-12 hour options depending on the collection you choose. Additional hours may be added for an additional charge (max. 12 hours).
Yes and no. I do not employ a dedicated, independent second shooter. I do, however, have amazing, dedicated assistants who volunteer their time and accompany me to all weddings and some DO second shoot when I need them! I decide on a wedding by wedding basis who is needed the most and we most definitely can discuss this in more detail! No matter what, I take 90% of the photos.
Packages include coverage for areas in the Ohio Valley including West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania (including the Pittsburgh area). Farther distances can be accommodated but may require an additional charge for travel time and lodging. There are no hidden fees and if your venue requires travel charges, you will no up front and before booking.
Yes, you will get all finished, edited jpeg images but not on a CD. CD's have gone out of style! You will receive your gallery along with a print release on a personalized, USB drive.
Yes. The print release gives you permission to print your own photos. However, I highly recommend and encourage my clients to order their images through my business as my prints and products come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. All third party printing companies differ in color, consistency, and quality. I am not responsible for images printed through any lab but my own.
Absolutely! Unlike many photographers in our area, I edit every single image myself. Each image in your gallery is processed, hand edited, and retouched for color quality and consistency. I want your images to be the best they can be so editing them myself is extremely important to me. I simply don't trust anyone else to do it!
Yes! I own cameras and lenses that allow me to shoot in low light locations.
I own some of Canon's top of the line equipment. I have camera bodies and lenses that allow me to shoot in low light. Additionally, I use five top of the line, external flashes which allow me to shoot with one flash on my camera and additional ones on light stands. That's important when I'm wanting to capture your wedding guests on the dance floor! If Uncle Joe is going to do the worm, I want to catch him doing just that!
That's NO problem! Any experienced photographer knows how to use camera flash to remove those flashing, colored lights from the subjects. It's just a matter of knowledge, experience, and technique and we have it down pat! Don't worry though...we ALWAYS preserve that beautiful uplighting on the walls to give your photos an extra "pow"!
All wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session. I find these sessions are important not only to get some amazing pictures before the big day, but also for us to get to know each other. I'm going to spend the whole wedding day with you. It's nice if we feel comfortable together and know how to work together prior to the stress of the wedding day. An engagement session gives us the opportunity to learn a lot about one another!
