Wedding Story Albums

I consider myself a Wedding Storyteller. Each of my wedding packages contains a complete wedding story told in the form of a "Magazine Style" wedding album. They are also sometimes called "Coffee Table" albums or "Yearbook Style". No matter what you may call them, they are gorgeous! If you click on the opening page of any of the albums to the right, you will be able to see a slide show of the complete album.

These albums are available in four sizes from 13" x 15" down to 4" x 5".

Click on the inside cover photographs on the right to see the entire album in a slide show.

Wedding Image Styles

I offer a variety of wedding image styles which are shown below. You may select a particular style for images of your wedding, or, like many of my clients, you may choose to have a selection of different styles. Click on any of the sample images or links below for a slide show of sample images.

Everyone seems to have different definitions of what the differences are between photojournalism, candid, traditional, formal, and fine art styles. I define photojournalism (or "PJ") as photography done without flash, and without setting up any part of the photograph. I try to be as unobtrusive as possible while working in this style. My tradition, this is usually done in black and white.

Candid photography is usually done with flash, although if done outdoors, it is usually just "fill-flash" which doesn't overpower the image. Although similiar to photojournalism, "candids" can be set up, although posing is kept to a minimum.

As an example of the differences, if I were to photograph a group of people talking in the "PJ" style, we would mostly likely see the backs of some people's heads. In the "Candid" style, I would say "hi", and everyone would turn to look at me without formally posing.

Formals are the posed photographs that most people are familar with. The more formal the pose and the more of these you would like, the more time we have to allow. Many of my clients prefer to keep posing time to a minimum so they will have more time with their guests. I usually suggest about 30-60 minutes, depending on the number of "formals" you desire.

Fine Art images are unique and special images created in an unusual style just for you. Some of my clients want a special album of fine art images and others want one or two fine art images to spice up the opening and closing of their magazine-style album.
