Engagement, Wedding, & Family Portraits

Emotional Fine Art

I can't quite describe how special it is when I am invited into the rituals of a couple, family, or a community shaping a life together. Photography, too, can be a ceremonial act and a beautiful, sensitive way to celebrate the tenderness and enormity of feeling of you and those you love.

For engagements, small weddings, and family portraits I spend time in the place I photograph beforehand and meet you prior to each session to personalize your unique experience and decide on one of the following approaches for you:

  • Day-in-the-Life where I'll follow you for the day celebrating the very real moments of your everyday life;

  • Guided Portrait where I'll co-create an experience for you before the lens that feels natural;

  • Somewhere-in-Between.

I give my time to each session; they are not rushed, giving us the chance to get to know each other, and for you to settle in and be who you truly are. Typical sessions last around 2 hours, with a half day of 4 hours, and a full day of 6 hours, starting at $350. All clients receive high resolution downloads, with individually hand-made prints upon request and advice for framing.
