information & pricing
My wedding packages always include pre-wedding consultations, a contract, a photography schedule, 8 hours of shooting (more or less depending on your needs), all aspects of post-production, and high res files of your event on a DVD.
Each wedding and event is unique and treated with the utmost respect. I naturally customize each event according to my client’s wishes and desires. I offer weddings, civil unions, engagements, portraits, bar & bat mitzvahs and any other events or situations needing my photographic talents.

My photojournalist style aims to capture the emotions, expressions, fun, humor, movement, nuances, and everything else that comes with a wedding or event. My approach changes throughout the day depending on the energy, sentiment, and situation, but all the while I stay true to what is happening around me, and my subjects. It has been remarked that am often a friendly familiar presence who blends in so well that that many did not even know I was the photographer until they saw me with my camera throughout the whole day.
photos, prints and albums:
For weddings and larger events, I edit the best shots between 500 to 800 photographs. I take great and meticulous care in the post-production of all of the images, making sure each and every photograph looks its best. After post-production, I burn a set of high resolution files onto a DVD. Prints can be made for an additional, yet affordable fee. I do not offer albums at this time, but am willing to work with my clients to get them made in the most cost effective and creative way.
For all events, my camera of choice is the Canon 5D, a professional digital SLR camera. I primarily use natural light as much as possible, but when the lights go down, I photograph with flash almost exclusively. Due to digital’s inherent nature, I always shoot in color. However, after you view the photos and deem that a few should be in b&w, I will be able to accommodate your request.
location and travel:
I am located in the cozy town of Woodbury, Vermont which is about 30 minutes north of Montpelier. I not only photograph locally, but will travel throughout the state, the nation and worldwide. I love to travel, and will travel almost anywhere to photograph your special day. A travel fee will be charged for locations over a certain amount of mileage for weddings outside of my general area (the cost will depend on where you are). If the wedding or event is situated outside a 50 mile radius of Woodbury, travel and accommodations should be provided in addition to wedding or event fee.
contract and photography schedule:
It is highly important to me that you are happy with the photographs of your wedding or event. To help make certain of this, I require a contract between the client and the photographer, as well as a photography schedule for the occasion. Both of these confirm that both parties are on the same page in terms of what is required and expected.
The contract takes care of things like locations, times, addresses before and after the wedding, payments and deposits, certain rights of both parties, plus a list of shots from which to choose from, which help informs the shooting schedule.
The photography schedule confirms the who, what, when, and where (and sometimes how) for all of the formal photographs, as well as all of the pertinent moments during the day. It simply takes the guesswork out of the event. In this manner, you know when and what is expected of you, so that you can enjoy your wedding or event without any worry. You will also have the choice of what is and what is not photographed. I am very sensitive and flexible to any of your needs.
