The best photographer still may not be the best wedding photographer. Photographing a wedding is about more than just taking great photos. It is about knowing how to work quickly, manage lots of personalities and be flexible for whatever may come up; all the while keeping your eyes on all corners to make sure and capture all the special moments that are both obvious and subtle. Over the years I have had the privilege of seeing over 500 couples get married in ceremonies ranging in size from no guests to 450 guests. I truly love what I do and being able to work in Washington DC has allowed me to experience weddings of just about every religious and ethnic background. Each wedding is the same, two people getting married, but getting to witness the subtle differences of how each couple makes the moment personal to themselves and their backgrounds is what really makes it special.
I have been a Wedding Wire Couples Choice Awardee for the past ten years in a row and have a 5 star rating with over 180 reviews; the most for any individual photographer in the Washington DC Area. You can read the testimonials here.
Top wedding photographers can shoot unique wedding photos that connect your engagement pictures, bridal photos, family shots, and wedding reception photos by using their personality to make you comfortable and feel natural in front of the camera
Great wedding photographers work with you to make a game plan ahead of time to make sure and get all your "must have" shots, allowing enough time so that you don't miss any of the party.
The best wedding photographers combine their wedding photography style with your personal tastes and seamlessly use their skill to the compliment of your vision.
Washington DC Wedding Photographer
I absolutely love being a Washington DC wedding photographer. The District is a fabulous backdrop for a wide range of styles from beautiful parks to urban streets and historical monuments. The options are endless
I work together with my clients to discover the overall feel they want within my range of wedding photography styles and combine it with my knowledge of the area to offer some unique shoot location options. I mix different techniques, angles, and light to achieve a feeling from artistic photos to classic pictures; all while staying within the modern wedding photography realm.
Along with all my wedding photographer DC colleagues I can tell you that there is more to this area than monuments for amazing background imagery. We will find a location that represents you as a couple.
northern Virginia Wedding Photographer
I am not just a Northern Virginia wedding photographer, My office is across the Potomac River from DC in Arlington, VA. Staying within the beltway when getting married is ideal for many of my clients, but some like to venture out to the suburbs and countryside of Virginia where I have experience with local venues including vineyards, breweries, and manor houses.
Each location has a unique feel that drew my clients to book that site, and I aim to capture the essence of what they love. Virginia is for lovers, and I have taken some of my best wedding pictures in the Commonwealth.
Maryland Wedding Photographer
I have shot all over the Old Line State from beach wedding photos along the Atlantic coastline to downtown Baltimore with its beautiful brick tapestry in order to become a great Maryland wedding photographer. The mountain ranges, early American historical sites, and the Chesapeake Bay offer seemingly limitless options for amazing backdrops for your big day.
What really matters to me is not where you are getting married, but how I best compliment your vision with my style. I promise to always keep your wants at the forefront in my approach. In Maryland, I have some hidden gems that I can recommend or maybe you have a location you love. Either way, I'm in.
Destination Wedding photographer
Hiring a destination wedding photographer can allow for you to get not just coverage of your ceremony and reception but of the entire week or weekend that you and all of your guests experience.
When I shoot destination weddings I do not offer packages based on hours of shooting but instead offer a comprehensive package of all day coverage as well as a session on another day to cover your rehearsal, day after, or other weekend wedding activities that you celebrate with friends and family.
You get to truly capture the experience and moments of the entire trip without having to take out your phone. You can just relax, enjoy, and relive it all again and again through photos. Exploring new areas is invigorating for me and the passion I have for this comes out in the work.
Wedding Photography Prices
I strive to offer affordable wedding photography for every budget. I offer a variety of customizable wedding photography packages and albums. All packages always include full resolution digital negatives with reproduction rights. You always get all of your photos and you get them quickly. I typically deliver all of your images within two to three weeks.
