Frequently Said Answers to Frequently Asked Questions:
Where are you located?
I am located in Orono, ME, but travel all over New England and beyond to capture special moments.
What is your photographic style?
I would describe my style as romantic, timeless, and photo-journalistic. I appreciate a good set of formal portraits during cocktail hour, but for the most part I enjoy capturing your day as it unfolds. I want the photographs from your wedding day to be just as beautiful as your memory of each moment is. I prefer a timeless look with my images being sharp, bright, and colorful. I like to get creative with natural elements like sun flare and silhouettes at sunset. I'll risk telling a bad joke to make a couple laugh before I would ever say, "Say Cheese!!!"
How many images can I expect from my wedding day?
Every wedding is different and there are many factors that determine how many images you can expect. I would say a bride and groom can expect a minimum of 600 images from 8 hours of coverage on their wedding day.
Who is your second shooter?
When a couple selects to have a second shooter I pull that second shooter from the amazing network of Maine wedding photographers that I belong to. I only use other professionals and to ensure that I only work with the best I find them about two to three months before the wedding date that I need them for. These professionals are wedding photographers themselves so I find ones who have your wedding date available after booking their own.
How far in advance should we book you for our day?
I'm currently booking 2017 and 2018 weddings. A 35% retainer fee and a signed contract hold your date. To ensure my availability I would say as soon as you're confident in hiring me to book.

What do you do to prep for a wedding the day of?
I have a ritual of playing the wedding episodes from both, The Office and Parks and Rec while I'm getting ready to leave for a wedding. I know the lines by heart.
What is your favorite line from The Parks and Rec wedding episode?
"I love you and I like you"
