How does the Sweet & Simple Package differ from the Signature Package?

The $1500 Sweet & Simple Package focuses almost exclusively on emotional candid storytelling while the $2500 Signature Package also includes a strong emphasis on cinematic, dynamic location portraits. The $1500 Sweet & Simple Package includes some family formals and on-location portraits, but they are not nearly as extensive and don’t feature the same level of creative staging and lighting. Because of the streamlined shooting style there is no assistant.

Couples who want dynamic, cinematic portraiture in addition to the emotional candid storytelling are better served with the $2500 Signature Package which also includes an assistant/2nd photographer to help with lighting and organizing.

My Style

I’m a wedding day storyteller, not a traditional “portrait photographer.” I’m less about capturing that perfect posed image and more about capturing great moments, even when we’re out and about for the dynamic portraits part of the day. I don’t focus on “smile for the camera” poses. Instead I’d rather capture romantic, intimate interactions or quiet, contemplative moments.

I want everything to be real and genuine. Even staged portraits should look and feel natural, not “perfectly posed.”

My storytelling style is roughly 85% candid with a focus on emotions & expressions and 15% dynamic portraiture. That way you get REAL memories and moments while you enjoy your day, not play to the camera. Yet you still get plenty of beautiful, hang-on-the-wall portraits.

• During the dynamic portraits portion of the day, I focus primarily on intimate, romantic images of the two of you with a few group photos of the entire wedding party.

I shoot primarily natural light throughout the day in order to avoid being distracting. However, there are times during the day when I’ll pull out the flash – usually to use creatively rather than to merely add light. The exception is typically during the reception when it’s very dark and I need a little help to capture those great moments. Even then, I want it to look natural, never “flashed.”

Overall my photos have more density and a deeper, richer tonality than the over-bright, blown-out-sky look that you often see. Never dull or muddy. I like to see plenty of details but also plenty of contrast.

I am very passionate about black and white photography and actually put more post production work into monochrome photos than color. Typically the preparation part of the day is rendered in rich black and white, moving to full color as the ceremony or portraits are captured. Throughout the day I’ll include some black and white as the scene calls for it. Black and white is ideal for concentrating on story and emotions where color can sometimes be distracting. It cuts to the essence of the scene and conveys emotions in a way that’s unique and beautiful.

Yes, I do capture family formals and I keep them fast and relaxed. However, I limit the number of groups that I capture in order to keep the day moving. It’s better to capture six to ten of the most important groups in a short time than trying to photograph every possible combination of family and guests and taking up half the day in the process.
