My Style

My approach to wedding photography is inspired by the years I lived in New York City, where I did a bunch of film-based street photography and street portraits. During that time, I tried to capture the city and its people in candid, unscripted moments. I loved the honesty and authenticity of those images. Today, I bring that same documentary approach to my wedding photography. I capture each wedding day with an unobtrusive style that has always described my photography. I also strive to incorporate nature into my wedding and engagement photography. Connecticut and New England offer so many serene landscapes, nature trails and outdoor locations that enrich each image we make. The timelessness of the outdoors is a central element in my couples’ photography. I am always excited to work with couples who share my love of nature and the outdoors.

FAQ

Where are you based? Do you travel?

I am located in West Hartford, Connecticut but I am happy to travel throughout New England, New York and beyond. I am available for destination weddings and elopements so please inquire.

What photography packages do you offer?

Wedding coverage begins at $2,900. Engagement sessions, albums and prints, and post-wedding photo sessions are available as well. Please contact me for a price list.

Should we do an engagement session?

Engagement sessions are a great opportunity for us to become acquainted before the wedding day in a relaxed atmosphere. We can shoot at a beach, a park, a country home, the city, or anywhere that has special meaning to you. Having spent a lot of time in Connecticut, I can suggest many locations as well. I love engagement shoots as a way to combine my artistry and your affection for one another without the time and location constraints of the wedding day.

Do you edit the photos?

Yes. I edit each and every image that I deliver to you. But I never want post-processing to define my images. For me, the power of a photograph is its ability to evoke emotion long after the moment is captured. I do not want to get in the way of that possibility. For that reason, I shy away from over-processed imagery. Each couple always remains the focus.

How long after our wedding will we receive our photos?

I deliver a sneak peek to couples within a few days of the wedding, and the entire collection within six to eight weeks (often sooner).

How do you deliver the photos to us?

Once I complete the editing process, I provide a link to an online gallery where you can view your wedding collection. The online gallery will be available for a minimum of 6 months. You and your guests can purchase prints and digital downloads directly from the link. I also mail a USB drive with the full-resolution images to you, so you can make prints at any time in the future. While I retain a copy of each wedding I photograph, I encourage all of my couples to make backups of their collection as well.

Are you insured?

Yes, I am fully insured through The Hartford. I can provide a certificate of insurance upon request.

We'd like to learn more about you and possibly work together. What should we do?

Please send me an email and tell me a little about yourself! I love to learn more about each couple I work with and to meet either virtually or in-person in the Hartford area. To book, I ask for a signed contract and a deposit so that I can guarantee the date.
