Thank you for looking to me to cover your wedding day. Weddings are meant to be a fun day and the party of your lives, so let’s treat them as such! As a photojournalist, I don’t feel that I have done my job if I am obtrusive and charging in on your day. My wedding philosophy is to remain in the background and let the event flow as freely as possible. The best compliment I can receive from a client is when they tell me “I didn’t even know he was there.”

When we break off for your formal shots as a new husband and wife, we will take the portraits in a minimal amount of time and it will be the only time when I'll be directing you to pose. We will laugh and enjoy our time together to celebrate the first day of your new bonds!

My promise to you is deliver an amazing product to the likes of which you’ve never seen. Thank you for your time and consideration and I sincerely look forward to hearing from you.

Please take a moment to read what my past clients have had to say about my services. Read less

Nick is a newish photographer in the DC area who does mostly photojournalism-style wedding photograpy, although his portraits area also gorgeous. He managed to catch all the right moments of our special day and I never even noticed him taking the photos. I booked him on the recommendation of my reception coordinator at the DC Ritz-Carlton and couldn't be happier with the photos. Also, he's a great guy - very easygoing and eager to figure out what the bride and groom are looking for. In addition, because he's newer to the wedding photography scene, his rates are reasonable. I can't recommend him more heartily (we got married in a relatively dark DC church on a fall night and he managed to do things with lighting that allowed us to get beautiful photos anyway!).
