Being a wedding photographer holds a special place in my heart.
I am a professional wedding and engagement photographer serving Syracuse, Skaneateles, Fayetteville, Manlius, Geneva, Oswego, Auburn, Liverpool, North Syracuse, East Syracuse and beyond.
It may be the hopeless romantic in me, but photographing weddings holds a special place in my heart. What is more inspiring that two people committing their lives together? The responsibility of capturing a couple's wedding day can not be overstated. If you are considering a photographer, ask that you be able to see ALL the photos from at least two or three ENTIRE weddings. Weddings are high-paced with lighting and conditions changing constantly. Being able to adapt to changing conditions, think on your feet and perform under pressure is one aspect that separates amateur or good photographers from excellent ones. Even though each wedding is unique and there are many variables (such as time of year, location, lighting, weather, etc..) it will give you an idea of the overall quantity and quality of photos and the photographers ability to capture great images under variable and less-than-ideal conditions. It is easy to take 2,000 photographs and pick a few to put in their portfolio but doesn't give you an honest and objective idea of the kind of photos or the quality of photos you can expect.
Hiring a professional wedding photographer is of utmost importance. I can't tell you how many horror stories I have heard from couples who had an inexpensive, unprofessional wedding photographer. My work has been published both nationally and internationally and some clients I have worked with include The President of the United States, Miss New York Shelbie Handville, Labatt's, SU Basketball Coach Jim Boeheim, MacKenzie-Childs, Burger King, Bauer Hockey, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Aspen Dental and New York Times Best Selling Author Tamora Pierce among many others.
