How it Began
My interest in photography started when I was about 12 years old. Later, in high school, I joined the yearbook staff as one of two photographers. The other photographer was Denise who became my wife four years later. She is retired from teaching and usually serves as my second photographer. Most importantly, she helps me manage the time and keeps me on our plan for the day.
My Thoughts on Wedding Coverage
In our wedding coverage, we work hard to tell the real life story in a realistic but modern way. Denise and I are always watching for the little moments and scenes that unfold spontaneously. We want those who view your wedding photos to feel like they were there even if they weren't. My style of editing reflects this by avoiding trendy "filters" or presets that will look dated in a few years. Occasionally an image will lend itself to more edited look, but that is not my normal style. Realism is my goal.
Much like a wedding coordinator, a good photographer will be involved with you months ahead to help things run smoothly when the day comes. I want to offer advice on your timeline if I see concerns with it. It is easy to overlook something as simple as when will everyone eat lunch.
Another topic to consider early is how "personal" you want your wedding coverage to be. For example, maybe you don't want coverage of mascara being applied. Or on the other hand, maybe having a photo of the groom tying his tie (or trying to) is really important to you. I want to know the time and space limits of my boundaries and how I can match the balance that you have in mind. And I always express to clients that at any time during the day, they have the option of telling me "not now". This idea extends to the ceremony also where the most special moments often occur. Good judgement and technique is needed by your photographer to get good coverage of these moments without being a distraction. I want to cover just about anything you would want covered during your day without compromising your privacy or contradicting your wishes.
My First Career
With my parents, I managed Lee's Inc for almost 40 years. We ran a very successful Suzuki, Yamaha, and Kawasaki dealership, ranking in the highest of customer satisfaction scores in the nation. Those four decades of helping customers and attending factory training taught me how to deliver a great customer experience from start to finish. Prompt and reliable communication is the foundation of that process.
In 2015, we sold the motorcycle dealership. Now I have the freedom to dedicate more time to my lifelong interest in photography and work alongside my wife Denise.
