First off I want to say congratulations on you up coming wedding.
I have been in the wedding and portrait professional photography
business since 1982, yes that is a long time but this is what I love to do.
I have been learning that whole time, I have my Masters and Craftsman
degrees in photography. I am also one of only a few with the hard to achieve
Certified Professional Photographer designation.
One of the important things that you need to know about me is that I
want everything that I do for you to be better that I would do for my own
family. That is not to say that
they are no important but you deserve my best and I will do everything I can
to achieve that.
CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Be aware there are many new wedding photographers out there, today anyone with
a digital camera thinks they can be a wedding photographer. It's not the
camera but the knowledge of experience and training. The pricing
of digital wedding photography reflects
the skill and experience of the photographer. Would you trust your most
cherished memories to someone who is practicing with your wedding images.
are only a few things in life that are done once, they are birth, baptism,
first communion and the first time you say “I do”, I am sure there are
others but you get my point.
Today it's important to choose someone you like and feel completely comfortable with and know they have the experience. Your time and planning are valuable, don't try and save a few hundred dollars on your photography and be sorry after the wedding. The typical amount spent on wedding photography is about 17% of the total for the wedding.
You will be spending most of your wedding day with your photographer, and the
connection you make with them from the start
will have an outcome in the photography.
Secondly, find a wedding photographer that is going
to treat your wedding as if it is an event of
theirs. He / She should have a vision for photographing a wedding
event and it should show in their work. For a
timeless look , find a wedding photographer
who is will versed and proficient in their style and composition.
WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I use 3 Canon Digital Cameras, a D60 (converted to infrared), a 1 - 5D's
and 6D with 5 lenses
from 15mm to 300mm. These are my primary cameras. I also
carry 3 flash units with the appropriate batteries. The latest in light
meters and attachments also can be found in my camera bags.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I am located in the south hills of Pittsburgh. And will come to you for the initial wedding interview, you can pick the location.
DO YOU OFFER PACKAGES?
Yes, Most of my packages include the electronic files as JPGs. Those
packages start at $1395 and I also offer one hourly coverage of 8 hours with
an album. The way I see your wedding is that it is unique for the both
of you, so why be limited. You have the opportunity to create your own
wedding album and extras the way you want. Most of my coverage's are
averaging 7 or 8 hours, they starts about 2 hours before the wedding with the
bride getting ready and seems to include 3/4 of the reception and all the
major events that happen.
