As a newly engaged couple, you have so many things to plan, vendors to book, outfits to choose… Your list is long. I hope to make it a bit shorter by becoming your photographer! Before I tell you about prices, let me first tell you what goes into making great wedding memories:
Knowledge: Someone who just picked up a new cool looking jumbo pixel camera will not be familiar with many of its features. To get gorgeous pictures, one must know their equipment inside and out, be able to think fast, and change settings and lenses without fiddling around – or your moment will be gone forever, uncaptured. I have complete knowledge of my camera and lighting equipment to take the best images of your day.
Experience: How do I know where to be at certain times of the ceremony or reception? How do I capture moments you didn’t even know were happening? That’s because I’ve been doing this for a long time (over 10 years, whew!). I can anticipate the moment, making sure no small detail will go unnoticed. I know weddings inside and out, and I will bring my experience to your wedding. I will know where to stand during the ceremony, how to pose you during formals, what to look for during the reception.
Professionalism: Couples tell me they didn’t notice me at the ceremony – was I even there? Or, how nice it was to let Aunt Mabel take that picture of the wedding party during formals. Or, how well I handled the children that didn’t want to smile. I capture your day unobtrusively, yet with energy and kindness. It’s your day to shine, not the photographer’s. I will be everywhere except your personal space.
Post-production: This may be the biggest, yet the most unnoticed thing about professional wedding photographers. We spend a good week’s worth of time on your wedding, which includes all the prep work beforehand, the wedding day itself, and then organizing, editing, and presenting your proofs, prints, and albums. We go through thousands of images, selecting the best ones for you, editing them to look fabulous, and designing albums. The post-production period is not something you, my clients, have to worry about – but it is a very important part of what I do. I want you to have the best, most complete memories of your day, and that means making all your images, products, albums – and you – look amazing.
I offer a few easy choices. The everything-plus-the-kitchen-sink collection is all about preserving every single memory in books galore! Plus a mix-and-match a la carte collection for a budget-savvy couple. No matter what, you will get at least 6 hours of wedding day coverage, with 2 photographers, and an online image gallery to share with family and friends. Collections start at $2400, and the sky is the limit!
For new weddings booked before 12/31/2014 I am also offering a Gift Voucher for $500 off wedding day coverage, PLUS $400 in account credit. Use it for extra hours, image disc, or album upgrades. (valid for new Florida wedding bookings only)

You really have to see my albums, touch them and leaf through them before making a decision on which one to get. I work with two amazing album companies, and each one offers something different. I love being able to offer my couples different options!
