The Photo Experience

Yup! I'm the guy

I’m Christian. Sorry I forgot to comb my hair for this picture.

Why I do weddings… it’s the creativity of it all really. I get a kick out being able to make something awesome that people probably wouldn’t expect.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not a stuck up and snobby artist. I work with couples to give them what they wish to remember for what is their day. The work gives me great satisfaction, but the people do to.

I think experience is important, because anything can happen of such a special occasion. Trust me I know. Weather, traffic or even technical difficulties with certain things. I try to be a prepared as I can for anything. Even if you all of sudden say. “Can we get a photo with that sunset?” I’m game.

I don’t think anyone can guarantee you a perfect wedding, but I can promise that I will bust my ass and give you my very best effort to what ever kind of wedding day you get, planned or unplanned. 

What you could expect

I’m sure you’re doing your due diligence on wedding vendors in general. Let me tell you how I like to run things.

Hear the voice, Meet the Face

An email or text can’t replace the kind of human connection you could have with someone you’ll be with for a good chunk of your day. A simple meet up or even a phone call can reassure that we will do well together. No time waisted with someone that could make the time drag or awkward.

Get the response your expecting.

No long delays in response or ghosting you. I get enough that from people myself. I want to be there for you and I want to respond in such a way.

The booking

When you book me. We get a contract and retainer out of the way. Then we get into making sure we on the same page with all your plans. I don’t want to miss anything really.

Wedding Bells

It’s go time and I’m there to work. All the planning has come up to this and I’m there to give it my all and be there for everything you’re looking for.
