Frequently Asked Questions

Are you available for my wedding date?
I am currently booking for 2010 and limited remaining dates in 2009. Please contact me and I will be happy to let you know if your date is still available.

Where are you located? Do you travel?
I am based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota and available to travel nationwide/worldwide to photograph your wedding.

Do you charge for travel?
I do not charge for travel within the Minneapolis/Saint Paul metro area. There is a nominal fee for travel outside of this area. Try my travel calculator for an immediate quote.

What is your photographic style?
I approach wedding photography with the philosophy that the events of the day should not be dictated by the photographer. I don’t ask for the bride and groom to stop enjoying their cake in order to pose for me or recreate the first dance so I can get the best angle and lighting. I would classify my style as documentary. I prefer to capture the moments of the day, as they occur. I like to use equipment that allows me to keep a comfortable distance and remain in the shadows, if you will. While there are certainly times for direction from the photographer, such as formal portraits, I strongly believe that the story of your wedding day is best told from an observing point of view.

What type of equipment do you use?
I use the latest in professional digital camera systems. I employ multiple camera bodies and a wide range of lenses from fisheye to telephoto. If time allows, I like to sparingly incorporate the use of "toy cameras" such as the Lomo LC-A and Holga. You can see some examples of my work using these cameras here.

Do you work with an assistant?
You have the option of adding an assistant ("second shooter") to your custom wedding photography package. I strongly encourage each of my clients to do so as it increases the amount of coverage and adds a whole other dimension to your wedding story.

How do I book you?
A signed agreement and non-refundable retainer fee of $500 (applied to your total balance) are required to secure my services and reserve your date. Please contact me and we can schedule a time to meet and discuss your wedding photography wishes.
