The best thing to hold onto in life is each other
— Audrey Hepburn

 

I want to freeze time for the bride and groom.

Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the biggest decisions that you'll face during your wedding planning. When the cake is gone and the memories have faded, only photos will remain to bring you back. I get that. I feel so deeply about preserving time for you and want to create something beautiful that your grandchildren will admire. I want to capture this amazing day for you!   My style is a mix of the posed portraits and editorial candids.  I want to capture those poised family portraits your grandmother can excitedly share with her friends and those gorgeous moments that are not posed or planned. The ones you will cherish.  The way his eyes soften when he first sees you walking down that aisle. The way your sister squeezed your hand as she helped you into your dress.  Your wedding day.... A day filled with changing light and emotions.  I like to get to know my clients and really try to capture them, their love and those they love celebrating their commitment.   

A wedding is a one-time event, there are no reshoots.  As a photographer I must be prepared for the unexpected. Aside from being fully insured with a full set of back-up equipment, I have years of experience and can adapt to any situation.  Even the best planned weddings will have hiccups and I can roll with them.  The biggest hurdle is often the weather.  Bright full sun during the ceremony, light rain during the bridal party portraits or a dark reception venue, no worries...  I have experienced it all and can find a solution for beautiful shots.  

I have been so lucky to photograph weddings at so many amazing Maine & New Hampshire Wedding Venues... Sunday River, Moose Lake Ranch, Higgins Beach Inn, Labelle Winery, Camp Roosevelt, Sugarloaf, Diadema Golf Course, Fort Williams Park, Skowhegan Art School,  Morgan Hill Event Center and Bigelow Brewery and so many more including some pretty awesome family homes, beaches, rustic camps, barns and scenic spots.  2018 & 2019 dates are booking with my favorite spots and a few amazing new locations, including Fairytale Gardens & Lake Parlin Lodge and Cabins. I cannot wait!

 I offer two options for my {Wedding Packages}

While I prefer to shoot the entire day from start to finish, I also understand that not all couples need the full day coverage.   

~both packages include~

*Many hours of pre-wedding consultations & update meetings (phone, email, messaging, site visiting and when possible in person) 

*customized "day of schedule" and "shot list" created at our meeting 6 weeks before the big day

*engagement session with 20+ high resolution images with print release

*unlimited high resolution images on a custom USB drive with print release

Full Day up to 10 hours  $1999

Half Day up to 5 hours   $1699

 

You can add a second photographer for $400

Don't need an engagement session... deduct $200

 

I also offer an Elopement/Small Wedding (under 20 people) rate of $599.  This includes up to 2 hours of coverage, an online gallery with all of the lightly edited, high resolution images for digital download with print release.  

 

~30% deposit due to book the date.  Contract balance due 30 days prior to the wedding date.  Prices do not include the 5.5% sales tax.  I offer flexible payment plans.  My studio is in Skowhegan, but I travel all over Maine and New Hampshire for a very nominal travel fee of  $100 for all weddings 75 miles outside of Skowhegan.
