Wedding Photography
Wedding photos with worldwide appeal.


Weddings provide some of the most memorable moments in a couple's life. My clients have been thrilled with the photos I have taken to capture these precious moments.


In 2001, a California couple flew me to Ireland 's County Galway to photograph their wedding. When baseball pitcher Roger Clemens and his wife renewed their vows on Maui , I was hired to photograph the event. Last November, I shot the wedding of U.S. Olympian Lauren Spalding and legendary canoe paddler Kai Bartlett when they were married along the ocean in Hana.

CameraNo Pressure

As a shooter who has captured Tiger Woods winning a playoff and jumped a fence to get award-winning photographs that ran on the front page of nearly every newspaper in the world, I'm not the kind of guy who pressures out covering a wedding. I'm calm, helpful, friendly and professional. Clients appreciate the way I capture action discreetly, without becoming the center of the production. I know when to take charge to get the must-have, posed photos and portraits, and when to get out of the way and let the action unfold naturally.

CameraBehind The Scenes

Some couples have hired me as the “behind the scenes shooter” to use a photojournalistic style to cover their parties, preparations, reception and wedding. Multiple-day rates are available upon request.

CameraImages are yours to keep

While many photographers make their profit by holding on to their images and selling prints, I prefer to turn the edited images over to the clients for them to keep and use as they wish. My rates include a finished CD and color contact prints of the edited images.
