About the Owner/ Chief Photographer Passion is my drive, creativity is my tool, and perfection is my goal. From day one, this has been the mission statement of professional photographer, D.

A Wedding Photographer

When you are choosing your photographer for your wedding, make sure they have THREE significant things:

1.  Your Photographer wants to tell your story

Your photographer has to want to know your love story as well as their own. Knowing your story helps your photographer not only create a memorable engagement session for you, but also know what to capture on your special day and give it that extra personal touch.

2. Your Photographer knows & respect your vision /dream

You and your photographer have great communication & understanding of your ideas that you want. Your photographer will be able to capture your wedding the way you want it & create the poses that you had in mind if not better ones. Your photographer must also have the relationship with you that they can tell you if something you envisioned cannot be done exactly how you see it, but will work with you to create something similar if not better. Your photographer respects you too much to give you less than you deserve.

3. Your Photographer is a Seasoned Professional

It is very crucial that your photographer has experience in wedding photographer and shooting in any and all lighting situations. You trust your photographer to be courteous, professional, timely and skilled in their craft. If you wanted just photos, you would ask your “family photographer” to do your wedding & not a professional. IT WOULD BE OUR HONOR TO BE THE PHOTOGRAPHY TEAM FOR YOU!
