How long have you been in the photography business? And what training do you have?:
I have been a professional photographer for 13.5 years. I have a degree in photographic imaging, and I printed professionaly for 6 years at a pro lab in Philadelphia.
Why did you choose to pursue photography?:
I love photography. I love the art of it. And, it's funny becasue when I was in school I thought that if I ended up a wedding photographer I considered it a failure. I just did not like the look of traditional wedding photography. I wanted to be a photojounalist! And, then while I was printing professionally I started to see the wonderful energence of photojournalism begin. And, I thought "this is fantastic". I really loved how it let the photographer be creative. And, I thought "hmmm... maybe this could be for me". I loved the idea of being with people on one of the most wonderful days of their life, and capturing their love on film. What could be better than that?
What kind of services do you provide? (just weddings, portrait, engagement, photobooth, etc):
Weddings, Engagement sessions, Baby/Children/Family portraits, Boudoir sessions, Events
What is the price range for your packages?:
$2500 - $4600
What sets you apart from other photographers?:
I think what sets one photographer apart from another is their personal style, experience, and talent. There are so many wonderful photographers out there, but I think what sets me apart from other photographers is the instinctive nature of my photography. I really try to get to know my client(s) and their personality(ies). The goal of my photography is to use my own perssonal experiences and talent to highlight the true nature of my client (s).
Do you offer any discounts or specials? (ie- Fridays/Sundays or winter months?):
I do offer discounts on Winter months (December,January, February) - 10% off
What is your favorite venue to photograph at?:
I don't know if I have a favorite venue, I really love untraditional venues.
