"To be able to see in concrete terms what was created in a fraction of a second is a rare luxury. Even though fixed in time, a photograph evokes as much feeling as that which comes from music or dance. Whatever the mode, the intent and purpose of photography is to render in visual terms feelings and experiences that often elude the ability of words to describe. In any case, the eyes have it, and the imagination will always soar farther than was expected." Ralph Gibson
My package fee includes my time and expertise at the session itself along with all the editing and post processing of the RAW digital negatives. You will receive the high resolution, fully edited JPG digital files in a beautiful custom thumb drive package for you to have access to and print at will with a clear instruction sheet from me outlining the best methods and options to preserve the quality of the work I have produced for you. Due to the lack of print sales revenue my package rates are non negotiable. I do offer a selection of stunning heirloom quality albums to choose from which I personally design and create in collaboration with my clients' individual preferences and vision.
Despite the slow & steady acquisition of excellent high end gear over the years, I fervently maintain that the equipment is but a mere tool at my disposal. The collaboration between my client and myself is where the magic happens. I do not rush our shoots. We will discuss your vision for the shoot in advance. There are no time limits and I don't cap the number of images you will receive. The shoots are always incredibly comprehensive and custom designed to best meet each client's individual needs and expectations.
I have a series of different packages based on the type of shoot and the number of people involved. Family sessions last about 2 hours. Please contact me directly for a list of my rates and packages.
Wedding - Packages start at $3500 for 5 hrs coverage.
