Style and Approach
Every wedding is unique. Your flowers, your cake, your grandmother’s pearls…. You’ve made choices that will define the day and reflect what is meaningful and important to you. As a “story told in pictures” your wedding photos should capture these details for you to remember and cherish in the coming years. My career as a fine art photographer and strong background in photojournalism and portraiture allow me to offer a unique brand of wedding photography that has an artistic sensibility, a photojournalistic style and a clean, contemporary feel. My goal is to capture and preserve your special day as it really happened–with photographs that are artful, true and beautiful–and most importantly, that resonate with you.

An engagement session is valuable for several reasons:

  • It’s a great way for us to get to know each other before your wedding day.
  • Seeing how awesome you look in your photographs will build your confidence and allow you to get used to posing for the camera as a couple.
  • It’s nice to have photos of the two of you in a casual setting without formal wedding day attire and time constraints. These images can be used for invitations, thank you notes, Christmas cards and romantic wall portraits.

Engagement sessions start at $295 and include:

  • A one hour session at the location of your choice
  • An online gallery for sharing
  • A DVD with approximately 24 carefully edited images with copyright release

A family portrait is one of the most important investments you will ever make. It is an investment in yourself and in your family’s heritage. My goal is to create portraits that are as unique as the individuals and families that I photograph.

Your portrait can be created in my home studio (up to five people) or at your home, at a park or a special location you request. With a studio session, you will be able to view your images and make your selections immediately after the session. With a location session, we’ll schedule a time for you to return to the studio to view your proofs and make your print selections. A private online gallery is also available for out-of-town family members.

Every session includes a complimentary consultation before we begin shooting. We’ll discuss your family, clothing options, colors, location and other details that will allow me to create a portrait that celebrates the unique identity of your family.

The sitting fee is $225 and includes 3 additional grouping of family members, if desired. There is an additional fee for travel beyond 20 miles.

Print collections start at $225 and include retouching. A DVD with a selection of your images is available for purchase. Ask for details.

“The real artist is one who can show us the same world as we’ve never seen it before” –Arnold Newman

My fine art portfolio contains three galleries: Black and White Infrared,
Color Infrared and Pure Color.

Infrared Photography
The ethereal quality of infrared light allows me to transform ordinary subjects into surreal dreamlike representations. In photographing the world around me, I am particularly interested in finding or creating interesting juxtapositions to evoke humor, irony or surprise.

Most of my photographs are created while traveling and the subject matter is diverse. Recurring themes include water, beach scenes, rural landscapes, cityscapes, and nostalgic childhood haunts though I remain open to new subject matter.

Color Photography
My color photography is much more diverse in style and subject matter. Although the images are personal my clients purchase them for both decorative and commercial use.

My fine art images have been featured in more than a dozen solo exhibitions and included in more than 60 invitational and group shows since 1990. My commercial and fine art work has received regional and national awards. In 2003, I received an Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Award for my fine art photography.

Please enjoy the Fine Art Galleries. All work is for sale.
