About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I guess the biggest reason my work stands out from others is my experience both as a wedding photographer, and just in photography in general. I have been a professional photographer for 30 years, starting right out of college. I have photographed more then 1200 weddings in that time. Because I learned my craft using film, it gives me a different perspective than photographers who have only dealt with digital photography. With film, you learn how to see the image BEFORE you take the photo, rather than just snapping a lot of pictures and checking your camera to see how you did. This ability to pre-visualize the photo helps me to create better images.

Q&A

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I'd want to look at what i call the "Three P's" - Portfolio, Pricing and Personality. You want a photographer who will give you the style and quality of photos that you want, and at a price you can afford. But that means nothing unless this is also a person you'd like to work in close contact with on one of the most important (and most stressful) days of your life. Meet with your photographer, check out his/her references, be certain that this is the person for you.
