Thank you for taking the time to look at my page ! I will work with you as much as it takes to get a package within your budget and to make sure you get only the best photographs of your special day.

I have been a photographer for over 30 years. I started at the news of Delaware County while still in High School, the the Daily Times and finally the Philadelphia Inquirer for 3 years, honing my craft as a true 'photojournalist'. ALong the years I also worked in Theatre shooting actors and models, as well as numerous catalog/brochure work for Wanamakers, companies and concert tours.

Combine all of these elements and you get a unique style of art and photography.

I prefer to cover the entire days events so that the pictures tell the story of the day. A combination of posed and candids assures you and your friends and family will look natural and happy.

I dont like to offer "just packages" because I believe every wedding is unique and different . It may be a renewal service, or 2nd marriage...something not typically large , and therefore a smaller price would be appropriate. Because of that I dont simply quote a number...you;re more than that to me.
I prefer to meet face to face, or at least emails and phoneconversations to gather information first...then give you a price that fits your budget and yet meets your expectations.

Please look through my work and feel free to email or call me ANYtime...I am always available to speak to you ! Read less

How many photographers do you work with?
I usually work alone, unless a 2nd photographer is requested ( based on a few variables)...but I have 4 other people I shoot with and trust on their own.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Short of an act of God or hospitalization...yes. Nobody can guarantee they'll be there that day....but I can guarantee that a qualified photographer WILL be there, on time and deliver quality photos should I be in a hospital bed. I belong to professional Organizations that have a network of qualified photogers on call, so if my 4 co workers cannot make it...someone will.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I have done that 2 times, and only because the timing and locations worked out perfectly....but I dont make a habit out of it. I prefer to concentrate on only YOU that day and if you should require overtime, I wouldnt want to say "I cant".

$200.oo per hour started.....but there's grey area there :)
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Just 1...but 99% of the time I dont even call it a break, as I dont like to leave the room or break eye contact with the bride. I usually stand in a corner and eat with a camera by my side.
Do you charge for travel?
Not usually no...I go to the jersey Shore often. Beyond that then Yes, i would charge a nominal fee.
