Thanks so much for stopping by to hang out with me for a bit. I’m excited to talk with you and hear more about your wedding! This is a very exciting time for both of you and your families. Choosing a professional photographer can be a bit overwhelming as well. After consulting with clients for over 25 years, we agree that personality and artistic vision are the most important qualities of a Professional Photographer. Our goal is to help your day run smooth and capture timeless images rather than snapshots. Together we will create the wedding of your dreams. I just want you to know that you can count on me to be there with you every step of the way. I would love to hear about the vision you both have for your wedding day!

First, your not just getting me as your photographer. Most packages do not include just an assistant with a camera, as many studios do, but a second Professional Photograher at your wedding as well. This allows for two different perspectives of your weddig day and we have a blast!

Wedding photography is a blend of artistry and rapport. Artistically, using the light around me as a paint brush, I use the connection between a bride and groom and their friends and family to create timeless portraits. These don't just happen by taking hundreds of snapshots. They are created by having a wonderful relationship with my clients and knowing how they interact together. This allows me design a wedding book that shows this true love and connection they share.

Building rapport with your photographer allows you to be comfortable with and to trust the photographer to portray this wonderful story. The relationship between a photographer and a Bride and Groom is a very intimate one. We are together all day to tell this story of love. I offer a very contemporary style with a traditional flare. Every wedding and couple is different and I see that when I'm creating your images.

When you begin your journey of hiring a photographer, the two most important things to look for are: Style and and a Connection. Look closely at style of portraiture and candid photography. This is your photographers comfort zone and most will not veer far from it. I truly believe the connection you have with your photographer is extremely important In order to obtain those unique shots, the Bride and Groom, their family, and their guests must feel at ease with the artist. A combination of both will thrill you for generations!

Photography has always been a very passionate subject for me. Wedding and Portrait Photography are the most exciting avenues there are in an artistic sense. Hands down! Where else can you interact with wonderful people, witness their most important day, and capture these timeless treasures for lifetimes of enjoyment?

I am an artist who uses the camera to portray my visions. I capture the world around us that we don’t always notice. As a member of the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI), and Professional Photographers of America (PPA), my learning process continues to stretch the artistic flavor that I offer my clients.

Please email me for more information on how to commission me for your special day.

Tim Blake is an amazing photographer. His work was exquisite, he listened intently to what we wanted and what was important to us and he made the most use of our time. He didn't tie us up in hours and hours of photo shoots and yet we still ended up with over 500 quality photos that captured our day perfectly. Beyond his photography experience, he was also a great advisor throughout the planning process. I still hear from my friends how amazing our wedding was and Tim really helped make the difference. He gave us great advice on vendors, tips on how to make the day go smoother and because of his experience, the other vendors loved working with him too, so it made everyone's job easier at making our wedding great.

Tim did an amazing job photographing our wedding. He is an expert in photography and knows what shots need to be taken during a wedding, Not only does he capture what is expected, he goes above and beyond and captures every emotion in a special way. He is very creative with ideas but also allows any idea to be brought forth by the bride and groom. He really enjoys doing unique and fun shots that really make your pictures special. We REALLY enjoyed having Tim be a part of our wedding! We had such a fun time and makes you feel comfortable to just be yourself enjoying the day- never once did I have to worry if he was getting every shot- he goes the extra mile and takes that whole stress away. We would recommend Tim to anyone who loves great photos to look back on and bring back each special moment of the day so you can get a sense of "reliving" that day because it goes by very very fast!!!

I have been in love with Tim's work since he did my senior pics in 2002! I knew the only thing that I really wanted for my wedding was that Tim was my photographer. I have been able to see a few pics and I am completely satisfied with what I have been able to see. Thank you Tim for all of your hard work.

We could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding. Tim was so accommodating when it came to consultations and was always prepared and professional. He took into account all of our photo ideas as well as came up with many of his own creative ideas. He is so personable and easy going which made working with him such a joy. Something we personally liked was how he was there to capture your big day yet he was often times in the background as to not disturb or interrupt you or your guests. Choosing your photographer for your wedding day is one of the most imperial decisions you will make, for once the day is done your photographs are what you have to look back on. We can proudly say that the photographs that Tim took of our wedding are not only breathtaking but allow us to relive every moment of that day as if it were just yesterday. Thank you so much Tim for all of your hard work we truly enjoyed working with you!

We could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding. Tim was so accommodating when it came to consultations and was always prepared and professional. He took into account all of our photo ideas as well as came up with many of his own creative ideas. He is so personable and easy going which made working with him such a joy. Something we personally liked was how he was there to capture your big day yet he was often times in the background as to not disturb or interrupt you or your guests. Choosing your photographer for your wedding day is one of the most imperial decisions you will make, for once the day is done your photographs are what you have to look back on. We can proudly say that the photographs that Tim took of our wedding are not only breathtaking but allow us to relive every moment of that day as if it were just yesterday. Thank you so much Tim for all of your hard work we truly enjoyed working with you! Read less

Tim does a great job of capturing every moment and emotion that happens on your wedding day. He makes sure to capture all family members and important guests, even ones we didn't specifically request. These are pictures of our loved ones that we will treasure for a lifetime. Every time we look at Tim's pictures from our wedding we get to relive the day all over again.
