01. OUR SERVICES

My goal, and a huge reason why I do wedding photography, is to see you happy with your pictures hanging on the walls of your home.  My style is big, bold, and beautifully lit. As both a former newspaper photographer and avid landscape photographer I bring a unique mix to the art of wedding photography. Beautifully composed photography of emotion filled moments are what I do best.  I love seeing real people living and loving, big as life. 

Candid moments filled with emotion and really nice portraits, beautifully lit in amazing locations are what I do best. It's a fun and creative process being at a wedding, and having fun is a big reason why I'm a wedding photographer.

FOR THE NEW ROMANTIC

uniquely modern events 

Please, please have a look at the last two portfolios on the portfolio page. The first one is a quick sampling of my landscape work, while the second one is a very limited example of my photojournalism work. These two sides of the coin are exactly what I bring to the art of destination wedding and portrait photography. 

No two weddings and no two photographers are alike. Please look closely at my portfolios and decide for yourselves if what you see will be right for you. I really want you to be happy with your photography.

"The negative is comparable to the composer's score and the print to its performance. Each performance differs in subtle ways."

-Ansel Adams

My goal is for you to have beautiful prints hanging on your walls and in an album. I work very hard at every wedding to make the best pictures possible and want the print (the performance) to match the work.

For this reason I encourage an album and prints with every wedding. The albums and prints are all made by the best in the business. We can swap and mix different albums, prints, and other options to get what you want. To take advantage of my skill as a former newspaper photographer, I offer a very unique iPad option, where you get an iPad loaded with the edited and auto adjusted images at the end of the wedding.

Wedding packages are for 2, 4, 6, and 8 hour options. The 2hr starts at $1,325 and the 8hr starts at $2,950 and include a disk of images. I strongly urge people to go with print and album options.

YOUR LOVE IS TIMEleSS. LET'S MAKE IT LAST FOREVER. 

I believe in making the choice to be happy. We find someone special, we fall in love, we grow a relationship together, and we must decide to share our happiness. The happiness of two people together can overcome any challenge.

French Roast steaming in my big Yellowstone mug while reading the New York Times makes for a great morning. Why isn't there a franchise in Bend? I keep thinking it might be fun to start one here and hang my fine art photography on the walls...

My wife disagrees with me, but I love the literary character Jack Reacher. Lee Child is a brilliant writer. I love the Reacher Rules, the way he travels, and the way he solves problems.

THERE'S NOTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN GREAT LIGHT. 

Light, composition, background, and emotion: these four elements make a great picture. It's why I try to grab the wedding couple at sunset to get the best portraits of the day.

the sea is my home. a place to play, to live, and to love.

Tropical ocean is like home for me. Playing the the Hawaiian waves with my wife and kid brings joy to my heart. I love open water swimming, snorkeling, and playing in the waves in these places.
