What makes your event photography different?
Capturing candid moments is the focus of my photography. The most meaningful photographs happen by letting people be themselves. I'll take a belly laugh over a canned smile any day. Capturing these moments takes patience and effort. The results are timeless and priceless.
Also, know that when needed, I am good at getting people to relax and look their best in front of the camera. This is particularly important during portrait sessions and family photos.
My seasoned event experience is also a valuable asset. Most events have some glitches. I have navigated many of these both big and small. Having an experienced photographer in your corner never hurts and sometimes saves the day (I can share some stories if you're curious.).

How much will it cost?
I offer a range of packages and work with clients to meet their budget and photography needs. Prices tend to start at $5,800, but it's best to reach out and let me know what you're looking for. Contact
How involved are you in each stage of the photography process?
VERY! There is great value in working with one person from start to finish. From our initial meeting to the final layout of your album I'll be making sure everything looks great and nothing slips through the cracks.
How many events do you photograph a year?
Bookings are limited to 20 full-day events per year. This helps ensure you get personalized attention every step of the way.
Do you work with a second photographer?
Yes, I work with a select group of excellent second photographers. Having a second photographer is a good idea for larger events or when things are geographically spread out.
What do your packages include?
Most packages include; a second photographer, the professionally edited files (high resolution, color corrected originals with no watermarks), and an online web gallery.
Do you offer albums?
Yes, I offer a beautiful range of hand-crafted archival custom albums and work closely with clients on the editing and design process. Learn more about Albums
I love your Event Books. Tell me more about them.
With great care, I personally design each Event Book. You will receive your Event Book 6 - 8 weeks after your celebration. Our clients are head-over-heels for these books as they love having something they can hold in their hands as opposed to only viewing in "the cloud". Event Books are included with album deposits. See a sample Event Book.
Are engagement sessions available?
Yes! I love to do engagement sessions. Not only are they a fun way for us to get to know each other, but couples have a great time and it helps them prepare for being photographed on their wedding day. Many packages include an engagement session, but they are also available as an add-on or a stand-alone session. See sample Engagement Sessions
Can we do a Mitzvah temple session on a separate day from the party?
Yes, many temples will not allow photography during the Mitzvah ceremony. In this case, we can schedule a temple session on a different day.
How many photos do I receive and are they all color-corrected?
The number of photos depends on the amount of coverage. For an 8-hour wedding, I edit down approx. 4,500 images to 750 color-corrected photos. I shoot RAW files rather than JPEGs so I'm better able to adjust the exposure and refine each image.
Do you provide the original files?
Of course. I strongly believe you should have access to your event images forever. This includes the unlimited rights to print and share your images for personal use.
How long will it take to get the photos back?
It usually takes 6 to 8 weeks to process and edit the photos.
What percentage of the photos will be in color vs. black and white?
The ratio of b/w to color depends on the couple's preference. I shoot everything in color and then convert an image to b/w during the post-processing. I love b/w because it has a timeless quality in the tradition of documentary photography. Plus some images just look better in b/w.
What type of gear do you shoot with?
I use professional Canon digital 35 mm. cameras with tilt-shift and fast prime lenses. I bring several cameras and lenses to a wedding for different light conditions, actions, and environments.
