Want to know how to make a photo priceless? So you’ll never delete it? I've often asked myself, “What really makes a photo priceless?” Is it the composition, lighting, subject, or event?

Your wedding is the one big celebration punctuated by a ceremony that warrants capturing priceless photos.
I believe in great wedding couples, cakes that tastes as good as they look, killer wedding DJs, wedding planners that are all in, wedding traditions, first look, divine intervention, great gear, great wedding photos, and I believe I love what I do - all of it!

About once a year we set up a "style shoot." This helps me stretch my creative muscles and find new ways to capture better images on wedding day.
