How long have you been a photographer?
I photographed my first wedding when I was 17, so right about 7 years!
What do you mainly photograph?
I focus on weddings, families, couples, seniors, maternity and newborns. I also dabble in portraits, boudoir or whatever your cup of tea is!
How many images do you include in galleries?
This totally varies per shoot and wedding! I do photograph on the higher image count and can tell ya, you will get plenty of photos captured from your shoots and wedding day! I am not one to keep any images from you, I use my discretion when editing to remove duplicates and poorly captured images, otherwise you are gonna get all your memories!
Where are you based and what areas do you cover?
I am newly based out of West Michigan. Serving all of Michigan. I previously was located near Fort Wayne, IN. I still offer sessions in and around Fort Wayne area's on designated dates and I don't charge a travel fee for those dates! Just ask and I can keep you updated when I am in town! Always accepting weddings in Indiana or wherever you are based! I love to travel!
How do we book you?

Do you offer printing?
I have begun offering a printing shops within your photo gallery so you can print high quality right from your personalized online gallery. If you want me to help build a photo album or give tips for where to print, I can help you there too!
What is your turnaround time?
For photoshoots I get them back to within 2-3 weeks.
For weddings it takes about 5 weeks.
Do you have a second shooter for weddings?
I work with second shooters on a subcontract basis. If one is requested I will work to find one within your budget.
Do you give out your RAW images?
I do not. Part of using my services is the editing process and giving them away unedited leaves it incomplete. If you feel that I have not included a photo, give me a shout and we can work it out!
Do you charge a travel fee?
If the distance is greater than 1 hour one way, I do charge $50 per hour of travel.
Costs vary for weddings depending on distance traveled, time involved and if overnight stays apply.
Can we see some reviews?
Do we get printing rights?
Sure thing! You will get a print release for your photos which allows you to print and share your images however you like! However, as the photographer I retain the original copyright to the photos.
