Working with Michael,

Photographing weddings is one of my favorite things. I get to work with so many different people, get to know their friends and families and do it all on one of the happiest and most important days of their lives.


Photographing a wedding is almost like photographing a sporting event.
It is a great challenge - it moves fast and you have to anticipate what is going to happen next and where to be so you're not out of position - but that is the fun of it. I love catching the emotions of the day, the looks that pass between people, the laughter and the tears. For me it is a day when people's emotions are that much closer to the surface and at some point the joy and happiness of the event just takes over. It's my job (my joy) to capture those moments so this family has them forever. My goal has always been that when a husband and wife look through their wedding album 10 or 20 years later that they feel their wedding day all over again.


Michael is not one of those photographers that shoots 3 weddings every single weekend. He does only a limited number each year so it is best to check with him as soon as you have your date set. "I shoot weddings because I love to. In order to be sure I continue to feel that way I only do so many each year. Some photographers say they shoot 50 or even 70 a year I don't see how you can enjoy them and I don't see how you can really care about the couple you're working with if you're doing that many. I like to know the little things that a bride and groom are doing for each other so I can be sure to capture it for them. I do so without intruding on the event. One of the comments I get most often is 'How did you get that shot?! I didn't even see you!' Those comments let me know I am doing it right."

We have photographed weddings all over the Northeast. Places like Fenway Park and Hampshire House in Boston, MA - Chanler at Cliffwalk in Newport, RI and all over Block Island, RI - Mayflower Inn, Candlewood Inn and New Haven Lawn Club in CT - The Jaffery Inn in New Hampshire - also in San Francisco, CA -Singer Island, FL, - Puerto Aventuras, Mexico just to name a few. I welcome destination weddings and offbeat, out of the box weddings. I love when people put their personal stamp on their day! So please look over the images here, if you want to see more we can arrange that. When you are ready please contact us. We look forward to working with you on your wedding. Thanks for your interest.

What is included-

Average wedding includes up to 10 hours of coverage  (I can help you work out the timeline for the day)

One or two photographer packages are available depending on size of wedding or your choice.

An optional set of 4 x 6 prints of all the photos (minus edits, depending on the size of your wedding this usually means between 700 - 750 photos)

Photographers that listen and care about your wedding. You are not just "the next couple", we want to help make your wedding day all you imagine it can be. We will help to make your day fun and as stress free as possible. I take pride in the fact that I listen to the couples I work with and I welcome their ideas, after all it is their wedding and I am there to help document the beginning of their new life together.

A wedding album (I have many to choose from) or engagement session can be added to any quote.

Feel free to give me a call I'm happy to answer any questions you might have.

I tailor prices to each wedding based on travel time and size of wedding. I believe this saves you money and helps you stay within your budget.
