Who's in charge here?
As the owner and primary photographer, you'll be dealing directly with me. I will help you through each step of the process. The collections that include a second photographer assistant are only those whom I trust.
Photos with Style

Photojournalistic
Nearly all couples enjoy creative candid or photojournalistic photography in the final image collection in addition to other formal or artistic photos. These are the fun shots that include those laughs and smiles and sometimes tears of happiness. They show raw emotion that's difficult to fake or pose. Also includes a lot of other candids of the location, details, guests, and the flow of your wedding day.

Artistic
These images use more creative angles, lighting, or framing of the subject. The goal is to highlight a particular moment in an interesting way.

Traditional
Traditional photography (aka portraits or formals) refers to posed pictures, usually of the wedding party and of your family. These include shots with your bridal party, family portraits, and others as needed during the day.

Your wedding day collection will include a blend of each, with photojournalistic images taking priority. Parts of the day are staged where I provide some direction, but for the most part, acting like a guest (with a camera) allows me to capture unstaged, unrehearsed, genuine moments of the wedding day.

Your Engagement Photo Session

This is a photo session prior to your wedding. It's recommended we meet 2 hours before sunset for best lighting. Rescheduling due to weather, illness, etc. is possible without additional fees. You're free to suggest ideas and locations. I'm always up for new locations. We spend 1-2 hours to capture some fun photos. We chat, you get to know me better and vice versa. It truly does make you more comfortable once we get to your wedding day. Plus you get some practice in front of the camera.

Digital images and an online gallery are the deliverables, just like your wedding photos. Feel free to get prints framed for your wedding. Pets are welcome and anything else you want. Travel fees may apply for locations farther than a one hour drive from Harrisburg.

Can I share my ideas?
Sessions and weddings are unique to you! I'm always looking for creative things. Let me know what ideas you have in mind and I will work with you to customize your day.
Wedding Attire
I dress for the occasion. So at a minimum, you'll observe me wearing dress pants, a button down shirt, and nice shoes. This also applies to my assisting photographer. For most client interactions, my working uniform is business casual.
Do you expect to be fed at the wedding?
It sure would be nice.
Process of Hiring
If I am available on your chosen date, I will book you in for a consultation and discuss all the details and help you select the best collection for your wedding. We can meet in person or video chat over Skype, FaceTime, or Google Hangouts if you're not in the Harrisburg area. To finalize the deal, a retainer and a signed contract will secure your date(s).
