Engagement Photography

Planning For The Big Day

I love weddings. I love being there and playing a small part in someone's life when vows are exchanged and families join together. It's a joy to watch the day unfold from the morning preparations, the arrival of guests and participants, the ceremony, the interlude, the reception, the speeches, dances, and embraces.

It's an honor when someone entrusts me to capture their special day in photographs. I take the role very seriously. I prepare for the day by reviewing the flow of events, visualizing the different stages of activity, and making sure that I am ready to photograph anything that happens.

I'm thrilled when I get the opportunity to photograph the couple after their engagement. It gives me a chance to get to know them and learn their preferences in advance of the big day.

Outdoor locations offer a variety of lighting and background options. The couple may suggest a location that's meaningful to them. This is ideal. The subjects will feel relaxed and comfortable in a familiar setting, and the photos take on an added level of importance.

Wedding and engagement photos capture some of the most important moments in someone's life. These images will be shared and cherished for generations to come. Being hired to shoot them is a responsibility that I take very seriously.

Everything that I have learned about photography over the past twenty years goes into every image that I make. I want my clients to be delighted with their photographs. I want to give them my very best work.

Camera: Nikon D810

Light happens. Be ready. Shoot hard.

  1. We had our wedding here and couldn’t have asked for anything more than what we got with the chef and staff. The food was amazing and my family is still raving about how great it was. The staff at DC wedding venues was so on top of everything.
