Stacy and Andrew had a Key West wedding that centered around one thing. Cats. As a cat-loving, wedding-photographer, when they told me all they really wanted were tons and tons of photos with the Hemingway cats, I knew we would get along just fine.

The past 10 years I haven’t shot as many engagement sessions as I use to. Living near Key West, almost 100% of my clients were destination couples – which was amazing but didn’t lend itself to the opportunity for engagement shoots that often.

Cocktail Hour and Reception This is another time of day when you really don’t have a lot of worry with photos.  I will be there, most likely until the end of the night photographing away.

The ceremony is pretty easy.  You just do your thing and follow what the officiant says.  Easy. Kind of. Most couples honestly think this is the most stressful part of the day; it is, after-all the main event of the day, the reason you are there. From a photography standpoint, there is really very little […]

Frequently Asked Questions What is your style? In my opinion, photo-journalistic, candid, etc are terms all too loosely thrown around in the world of wedding photographer.  After more than 14 years of photographing weddings, I can honestly say there is a place for all ‘styles’ of photography within every wedding day.  I do spend the […]
