Hi there! I’m Lindsey (“Lensy”) Michelle – a queer, Boston-based photographer with a soft spot for intimate weddings, elopements, and pretty much any celebration (micro or ginormous) where the couple decided to put what they wanted above anything else. In the words of Aretha Franklin: “What you want? Baby, [you] got it!”
My style is a mix of candid and directed coverage that seeks to amplify and celebrate what makes each couple unique instead of making them look like everyone else. But don’t worry – If the thought of “candids” makes you think, “but we’re awkward.” Not to fear! I gotcha on directing the shots that need a little extra TLC. But honestly, I believe that fabulous candids can come easily if we work hard on planning a day that’s actually enjoyable and stress-free!
Contrary to what you might expect, I try not to enter any of my sessions or weddings with a “go-to shot list” or assumptions about what your love might look like in a photograph. I mean, how could I know? Rather, we’ll try on a bit of everything to see what feels right within your own relationship. Eventually, we’ll hit a grove of what feels like you, and THAT is when the real magic happens.
If I had to describe my work in one phrase, it would be: Honest and quirky – with a bit of an edge.

Nestled in Long Beach, California, we are the premiere LGBTQIA wedding provider for the Los Angeles County and Orange County market. Gay-owned and -operated since 2000!
I started taking photos professionally in 2000 with the belief that photography should not have to cost an arm and a leg. Several of my friends were getting married at the time, and I was blown away by how much photographers were charging. I was equally surprised with the lack of service and quality they were providing. I made it my mission to start a business in which I could put the customers’ needs first. By keeping prices affordable while maintaining exceptional quality and customer service, I have grown my business over the years. From start to finish, David England Photography is a unique experience. I strive to capture lasting images for my clients in a fun, easy, and affordable way. I believe clients should have the right to own their own images. They should be able to share them with friends and family members as they see fit. Because no two events are the same, we approach each celebration with a fresh perspective. Through years of studying the craft of photography, I pride myself in the art of storytelling through photographs. I love what I do, and I‘ve surrounded myself with a team of photographers who share my passion. Knowing with each image I’m creating a masterpiece that can be passed down from generation to generation is food for my soul. My clients are an extension of my family, and when given the task of capturing important moments, I give myself to the craft, and I give my heart completely to the art of photography.
Jody is a wedding, lifestyle and travel photographer who captures special adventures and every day moments with an editorial and artistic eye, using and embracing nature and natural light in her work. Her boutique photography studio is only a few blocks from the coast in Northern California. She does all of her shooting on location and her production work in-house. She is familiar with great spots to shoot whether you are local or visiting and in search of a vacation portrait experience.
Jody’s clients say it best:
“She is practically invisible…”
“.. a spectacular lady with great professionalism”
“She has a natural way with people…”
“If weddings weren’t ‘once in a lifetime’, we’d
want her there for every one!”
Her laid-back style makes everyone comfortable in front of her lens. Her approach is friendly and unobtrusive; she loves developing relationships with her clients. She wants to tell your story through clean, beautiful and emotive images.
Jody adores shooting weddings (you may catch her with happy tears in her eyes behind the camera), and children’s portraits (she truly loves kids), and it shows in her work. In order to spend as much time as possible on each client, she limits her wedding clients to one per month.
More and more couples know that a big, traditional wedding isn’t right for them. I plan and photograph epic elopements and small weddings for couples who want to choose their own adventure and have the best day ever.
When you work with me, you are so much more than a date on my calendar and I want to be so much more than a stranger with a camera.
I help couples like you find the perfect location to exchange your vows, recommend trusted vendors who’ll bring your vision to life, and build relaxed timelines that keep the focus on sharing an incredible adventure with the person you love.
What does your best day ever look like?
Let’s find out together.

I’m always up for an adventure! I’ve never met a mountain that I didn’t like. I love my dogs, Harry Potter (proud Hufflepuff!), Leslie Knope, and the Great British Bake Off.
I would love to hear about your story and your vision for your wedding day!

Majestic, enduring photography
for adventurous soulmates…
Weddings starting at $3000 and elopements starting at $1400.
Documenting love stories, creating heirlooms…In life, it is all we can hope for that we find love and have the joy of spending time in beautiful places. I find passion in capturing authentic moments with stunning backdrops, whether that be an elopement at the base of Piney River or a small wedding on Vail’s wedding deck.
I am a photographer who documents love, I live in the little town of Eagle, just outside of Vail, Colorado. I am looking to make connections with people who want to capture intimate elopements and small weddings. My lifestyle photography shoots to capture candid moments that reflect your life together. That may involve a hike, a trip on the gondola, or just cuddles on the couch at home.
I am passionate & genuinely believe in love. When I was planning my elopement choosing a photographer was a tough decision. If photography is important to you, you want to know who will be the best investment for your hard-earned money? After all, when the day is over, the dress is hung and you are sitting down on your couch, this day may be remembered by a photograph hanging over your mantle or an album on your coffee table. I want you to look back and have no regrets.
Based in Vail, CO, I love destination weddings and adventure elopements all over the world! No matter where you are getting married I bring ALL my gear (carry on!) so that your wedding photos will turn out amazing regardless if my bags make it! If you are not getting married in Colorado, please let me know at inquiry so that I can send you my travel brochure!
Why Misti Layne (beyond the cool name) when there are so many professionals and amateurs with nice cameras to choose from?
I tell stories with my photographs for weddings and portraits. There is a story to everything right? There is certainly one to your wedding and even to a portrait session. The in-between moments can be the best moments!
Images tell a story and they are there for me to find. It is about me watching, listening, learning and being at the ready for the instant THE image hits me and I push the button. Most anyone can take a photograph with their mobile today. But this ends up being a random moment in time. With portraiture there may be moments between the intended images that really resonate beyond the standard. This isn’t one image. It is a series of images that provoke emotion and thought. This happens with trust and openness and I know I can only get this if you trust me and I am open enough for you to do that. When there is this intimacy, I can get to the heart of the images and that is when the storytelling photography happens.
This is about you, not me. It is your dream wedding, your celebration of a new baby, your wish to capture four generations of an ever expanding family or even just a new head shot for a new job. Every person, event, need and desire are individualistic to you. I don’t do this for extra money-it’s my entire life. I don’t do this because I like taking pictures-it’s my passion. I don’t do this because I have a nice camera-I do this because there is nothing else I desire to do. Period.
Hi, I’m Adrian! I’m a laid back photographer who drinks an obscene amount of hot chocolate, collects DIY-projects, and helps people forget there’s a camera near them. Before stepping into wedding photography, I worked in Fine Art and chemistry, which led to a fascination with how art and experimentation could be combined in new and fun ways.
I show up to each session with a playful attitude, plenty of snacks, and some serious optimism. Events aren’t always perfect, but I’ll show up with rose tinted glasses anyway (don’t worry— I’ll bring enough optimism to share).
My name is Nayza, and I’m an elopement, destination wedding, and portrait photographer located in San Francisco Bay Area, California.
Long story short. I started working in the wedding industry back in 2007 as a stylist, but photography has always been my passion. One day it dawned on me that photography is what I want to do until my last breath:)))
As for me, photography is an opportunity to tell stories of my heroes. I think that through photography we can make people, feelings, and events immortalized, and that inspires me.

Hi there! I’m Zach, a wedding photographer based out of Atlanta and NYC. When it comes to wedding days, my approach is relaxed and photojournalistic. I provide a stress-free photography experience that allows you to be present to enjoy your celebration. Whether it is a wedding surrounded by 200 or an elopement at the courthouse with just the two of you, my goal is to create imagery that is honest, timeless, and true to who you are.
As you look at your album through the years, my hope is that you will be able to not only remember the moments, but relive how they felt.
Venture Ever After specializes in adventure elopement photography and experiences in the PNW. My focus is on helping people in love have the intimate wedding of their dreams in magical outdoor spaces. I believe that love is best strengthened through meaningful, shared experiences, and what better occasion to approach with intentionality and meaning as your wedding day?
When you choose to elope, you’re choosing to get married free of society’s wedding day expectations. So go wild! Choose to spend the entire day in your favorite place, with your favorite person. Wear a fancy outfit, or wear your hiking boots. Invite your dog instead of your mom’s second cousin. Share your first kiss under the stars instead of under an altar.
In the great outdoors, you write the wedding rules. And I’m here to help make it an experience you’ll remember for a lifetime.
I do this work for two reasons: Because I love people and I love the planet.
I love all types of people, and yet all types of people are not always celebrated in the wedding industry, or in outdoor spaces.
You deserve an elopement experience you’ll never forget, regardless of what you look like, how old you are, or who you love.
I’m a Leave No Trace certified photographer, conserving energy through my personal and business choices, and continuing to lean into environmental activism.
I donate $200 to an organization of your choice when you book with me.
As a documentary-style photographer, I love to emphasize connection, texture, and authentic emotion. Being a former actor who found a deep love and passion for wedding photography, I’m most drawn to the art of story telling while creating honest and original work. I strive to make my images fully represent my couples in every way possible. From smaller, unconventional elopements to traditional full day events, I’m here to capture everything from the big kiss to the secret “I love you’s” shared in a whisper.
Being by your side for nearly the entire day means I’m there to offer encouragement, consistent communication and good vibes. As your #1 hype-girl, I got you!
JC Lemon Photography is an award-winning New York City wedding photography studio that captures love in a modern, relaxed style.

Hi, I’m Nellie! My pronouns are she/her. I’m a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in the Philadelphia suburbs. I have been photographing weddings for 10 years and could not love what I do more. I pride myself on being there for my couples, answering emails/texts quickly, working with them to put together a timeline that works for your vision of your wedding.

Capturing the emotions and story of the day, the moments you might miss is what’s most important to me. Everyone is welcome here and I am constantly trying to better myself and my business to create a safe space.
I’d love to connect and hear more about you.
We’re a team of creatives fascinated by stories and by love. Getting to know what that looks like in each individual relationship, seeing the tells and nuances between different people, getting to know how it all was built and developed into a partnership.

When your images are delivered, the goal is for you to feel all those same emotions — like a deja vu to your wedding day.

Hi there! I’m Alesha your Seattle Wedding and Elopement photographer. Nothing makes me happier than capturing authentic moments with rad couples who might be a little spontaneous, adventurous, or down to try something new. The PNW has so many amazing landscapes to offer and if you want to get out there and explore them, then I’m the photographer for you. But it’s not just about documenting, I want to show your love for what it truly is, because it is beautiful and holds a story that needs to be told.
When it comes to your wedding day there is no right or wrong way to plan your wedding. It’s yours after all, so make it as unique as your love and let’s capture moments that reflect your lives together. Whatever the day has in store you can know confidently that I will be there capturing timeless images that will bring you back to that momentous day when you look at them.
As your photographer I’m here to tell a story of effortless love, family, friendships, time, patience, planning, and so much more.
So let’s do this thing already and go on and adventure! I’m your hype woman ready to get goofy and weird with you.
I believe elopements are the epitome of meaningful weddings. After all, your wedding is the moment in your life when you vow your love and commitment to another person; the day you say ‘I do’; the day about YOUR love (not anyone else’s). So why not spend it like that? Focused on your love, journey, and future as a couple. What does that look like? The truth? It can be practically anything you want! A hiking adventure, an off-roading/skydiving/yacht sailing extravaganza, a peaceful secluded cabin experience, exploring a new country or revisiting an old favorite…. The possibilities are endless. You just have to dream it.
Hi! I’m Isabelle—an adventurous wanderer/traveling wedding photographer who just recently moved to Colorado. Born in Arkansas and raised in Louisiana, I love the community and culture of my home, but there’s something about the “wild West” that I just can’t stay away from. My heart beats faster on the open road and my soul comes alive hiking in crisp mountain air, staring at the vast expanse of the American desert, or swimming in the rush of cold Pacific Ocean waves. When my husband and I eloped, we vowed (as cheesy as it sounds) to continue living our lives to the fullest. And that’s what I want for you.
I want you to feel alive on your wedding day. I want you to wholeheartedly LOVE the day you get married. And that’s why I’m so much more than just your photographer. Yes, absolutely, I will capture those epic photos, but I will also guide you in the process of planning this momentous day in your lives. Don’t know exactly where you want to tie the knot? I got stellar choices for you! Need help finding other vendors? I know lots of great options! Not sure what the day should look like? I will handcraft a timeline made perfectly for your one-of-a-kind wedding day. I want to make your life as stress-free as possible so that when your elopement day rolls around, it can flow naturally; meaning your wedding will be and forever will stay a day about the two of you. And my goal? To tell the full story of your beautiful day; keeping the posed shots to a minimum and instead, documenting the multiple emotions, little moments, and varying details that make your wedding uniquely your own. I am there to capture your love but will make sure to create a space that allows you to completely be present with your spouse. Are you ready yet?
Adventure is for anyone and everyone. I am LGBTQ+ friendly and a proponent of every body shape and color. Inclusion & diversity matter to me. You deserve to feel love and acceptance from your vendors.
I launched my company DeAnda Photography officially in 2010, and have now photographed over 100 weddings. I have always been an ally to the LGBTQ+ community and when marriage finally became legally recognized for same-sex couples in 2014 in Illinois, I knew I wanted to help these couples capture their big day. I had read too many disgusting stories of other wedding vendors refusing service to same-sex couples and I knew I wanted them to look at my website and not have any worry and be able to see that not only have I worked with other same-sex couples, but I celebrate them! Love is love in my book and has always has been that way since day one!
I’m a queer and inclusive wedding and couple photographer. I know what it feels like to be left on the outside. I know what it feels like to be told, “No, I won’t shoot your wedding because of who you are and how you love.” Listen, I’m not about that life.
Together we will make sure you have a bomb-ass wedding where you feel celebrated for exactly who are you are.
I’m here to capture the real stuff. I get to know you throughout the planning process so I can capture photos that truly feel like you. Being in front of a camera can feel super weird! I get it. I make sure that you feel like you can be yourselves and feel confident that you will get beautiful photographs that you will cherish forever.
I’m not here for my Instagram, I’m here for you. Of course, we’ll get super creative shots along the way so you can show them off to your friends, family, and on the ‘gram. But documenting your love story is my priority.
I am trained in all kind of lighting and all kind of weather. I consistently invest in my education, my equipment, and my business so that you can have the best of the best. You never have to be worried about me not being able to handle unexpected circumstances.
I have affordable wedding packages and will travel anywhere to photograph your love! No place is too far for this wandering heart.
Like I said, I’ve got you.

I’m a journalist turned documentary-style wedding/elopement photographer here to remind you that your love is authentic and awesome all on its own. I’m here to capture the essence of your moments and help you remember exactly what it was like to be there — real, honest, and messy. I’ll blend in on your day so you can stand out, because your wedding is about YOU and the people you love who love you. I understand that these photos are part of your legacy. And I’m just dang excited to create for you!
All are welcome here.
I’m Amanda (she/they), an inclusive wedding photographer who specializes in intimate weddings, elopements, adventure weddings, and working with the queer community.
You are I are going to begin our photography collaboration a little differently – by talking about how this process is not only about the photos, but also about how you feel. While I care deeply about creating beautiful images, I care more about you! My approach to photography is holistic – I want you to feel seen, included, and celebrated – and I want the act of being photographed to feel sustainable for you, not forced.
I’ve spent nine years creating clean and honest images celebrating love, and have been told that I am the photographer for people who hate being photographed.
This business is queer owned, champions Black and Brown lives, embraces both monogamous and ethically non-monogamous love, and welcomes neurodivergent minds.
Well hey there!
The name’s Luke. I’m a traveling elopement and wedding photographer based out of the Midwest, as well as an all-around professional third wheel. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been featured by the likes of Junebug Weddings, LooksLikeFilm, Equally Wed, and I was even named one of 2019’s best wedding photographers.
My love of photography is what inspired me to become a wedding photographer. I’ve been a photographer for 9 years doing newspaper coverage, landscapes, my own artsy side-projects, and photographing concerts and theater and it’s honestly the best job ever.
The best thing about being a wedding photographer is that I get to create art and experience so many incredibly meaningful days in people’s lives. Being gay myself, photographing LGBTQ+ love stories is something I’m incredibly passionate about.
My couples just want good photography, and the last thing they want is a photographer who bosses them around and takes over their wedding day.
My wedding photography style is dramatic, artistic, and fun. I capture all the romantic and fleeting moments and step in to direct and guide as needed, letting you focus on having a fabulous day. For me the best bit about a wedding day is the portrait session – it’s so intimate and beautiful capturing what’s unique about a relationship.
Your wedding is all about love and laughter. You don’t necessarily care about having all the “things” or formalities – you just want to have a hell of a party with your best friend.
If this sounds like you and you like the sound of how I work, get in touch! 🙂

Hey there, I’m James!
Growing up in the sleepy town of Los Osos, a hippie haven of California’s Central Coast, this upbringing influenced me with a calm & easy-going demeanor, while my genetics blessed me with a touch of neuroticism (the true key to success). Basically, I’m a silly man with a love for the simple life: live music, yoga, healthy eating, getting outside, traveling, you name it. I’m also a huge geek and have an appreciation for all things tech, especially PHOTOGRAPHY!
In 2015, I turned my photography hobby into a career and I’ve been wildly in love with life ever since. While I enjoy capturing photos of all kinds, wedding photography has become my bread & butter and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m a total sap for love. It’s the one thing I’ll always fight for, and what a privilege it is to capture such beautiful celebrations of the very thing that turns life into a wonderful adventure. I’m also a strong supporter of equality & inclusivity, and am a Certified LGBTQ+ Inclusive business. I always work diligently to create a open & empathetic space for clients of all identities & orientations.
My photographic style is on the darker side. I like to play with softer light as I guide you through some natural poses & help you feel comfortable in front of the camera. The result? Authentic, vulnerable photos with a romantic & soulful mood.
When we’re working together, I am first a friend. While I practice professionalism each & every step of the way, I truly believe the best photos are created when the vibe is light-hearted & playful! That way you can just have fun & maybe even forget all about the camera.
In short, I create lasting, artful images with you wherever we may be! Whatever the call, it’d be an honor to capture the moment.
Twisted Aisle Weddings is a team of kickass documentary wedding photographers who capture all the raw emotions, ‘imperfect’ moments, sideways glances, belly laughs, and quiet moments that make up a wedding day, tell the story of your relationships and the life you’ve built together.
Our approach is fun, colorful, informal and, we’ll be honest, a little silly too. Our team documents everything with an eye for the raw, weird, sweet, humorous, honest moments but also keeps on the lookout for the opportunity to make some really beautiful images happen without spending a bunch of time away from your guests.
So if you like the idea of candid moments over posed ones, having a little guidance when you’re feeling super awkward in front of the camera, and a team who’s actually invested in you and your community, go check out our website for more information (and photos!)
LGBTQ+ owned, a little bit punk rock, a little bit nerdy, 100% committed to social justice.
All Bodies. All Genders. All Loves.
Creating honest images for the modern love story, that’s my mission with every wedding I photograph. My name is Cat, I’m a wedding photographer located in Bellevue, Iowa. I want you to have tangible proof of the most important relationship in your life.
Stick with me here for a minute — close your eyes and picture the human that you love the most. Did you picture them saying “cheese” in your general direction, with a vacant look in their eyes? I will bet my beloved iPhone, that you did NOT. I bet you pictured them belly laughing. I bet you pictured the little smirk they give you when you share an inside joke. Let’s. Capture. THAT.
Our stories matter, and I would love to hear yours. Please reach out, let’s have a chat!

Since 2010, Aaron Jay Photography has captured moments that can never be repeated.
There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than the look on a mother’s face as she sees the pictures he has taken of her children, or the look on a father’s face when he sees the pictures of his daughter on her wedding day.
Aaron Jay Photography gets great satisfaction in knowing those moments we captured through a lens will be cherished forever.

From wineries & mountains, to beaches & ballrooms, he’s shot it all, and if he hasn’t, it’s probably on his list.
Because making memories shouldn’t be the most stressful part of your wedding day.
We’re Megan & Kenneth, and we want to capture your day comfortably and naturally. Don’t expect to be put in a bunch of uncomfortable poses and pulled away from your family & friends – it’s not really our thing.
So, what can you expect?
- Candid, natural wedding photos.
- Friends who will tell you if you’ve got food in your teeth.
- Beautiful memories that will last a lifetime.

When there’s love on both sides of the lens, magic happens.
Hi friends! My name is Diana and I’m a wedding photographer living in Austin, Texas and traveling far and wide for celebrations.
I feel inspired by our community, teachers, activists, immigrants, and people who care about the world around them. I aim to create a safe and collaborative space so you can feel the most free to celebrate your love.
As a photographer and artist, I value beautiful, creative, thoughtful, and authentic moments. Say hello and let’s get started.
Hey, I’m Chris and I provide bold, modern, and authentic photography for unconventional couples. I believe that your dream wedding should be unapologetically you, and that you deserve the peace of mind knowing that that I’ll capture real emotions and real moments without noticing I’m there. I’ll thoughtfully document all that you cherish so that you’ll be able to relive the joy of your wedding for years to come.
Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions of the wedding planning process. You need to be absolutely sure you find someone you’re comfortable with because they’ll be with you the entire day. You need to love their style because you’ll be looking back on the photos for decades to come.
Peace of Mind
I’ve photographed 125+ weddings. I’ll capture everything about your wedding day without having to be asked. You’ll get timeless photos, not bizarre sepia toned fad edits. You’ll look back and remember the day as clearly as if you were there.
I like to keep everything very casual. I provide very light direction so you won’t be forced to pose in unnatural ways. There will be banter and real laughter. It’s essentially an awesome adventure where someone just happens to me taking photos. Couples routinely tell me that their anxiety quickly disappeared and that they had a lot more fun than they expected to.
I appreciate bold aesthetics, wide shots, and incorporating architectural elements. My couples tend to appreciate those things as well. Why have an epic location or venue if you don’t capture it?

You’re getting married! Congratulations! I’m a queer wedding photographer based on Cape Cod and I would be thrilled to work with you! I have over a decade of award-winning experience as a professional photojournalist and I have been in business as Salty Broad Studios for two years. As a member of the LGBT community, I understand how exciting and comforting it is to work with vendors who are “part of the family.” Not only will you be supporting a business certified by the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, but you will feel at ease knowing that you are working with an experienced professional that will deliver the highest quality pictures and customer service.

I answer emails, texts and phone calls as soon as I receive them. On your wedding day, you will receive friendly, down-to-earth service! I strongly believe that your photo session should be fun! We should be laughing and enjoying the day! After the wedding, you will receive a sneak peek right away so you can share your joy with your friends and family and your complete final edit will be delivered within 30 days.
So, let’s chat! I love hearing about how my couples met! My wife and I met at Girls Pint Out, a ladies beer club, and had our first kiss on Cinco de Mayo, which is now our wedding anniversary. (yes, we had a Cinco de Mayo wedding).
How long have you been shooting weddings?
I have been working as a photojournalist since 2005 and I started shooting weddings in 2007.
How would you describe your style?
As a photojournalist, my emphasis is on capturing candid moments and making you feel comfortable. My goal is to capture pictures that reflect who you are as a couple. As part of my photojournalistic approach, I also believe that portraits and family formals should be an integral part of your collection. I urge my clients to set aside time on their wedding day for family formals and a private portrait session after the ceremony. Ultimately, how you spend your time on your wedding day is entirely up to you but investing in quality photography will provide lasting, tangible memories for your entire lives.
How many photos will I receive? How do you edit your photos? What’s the turnaround?
Generally, most couples receive over 600 edited images from their wedding day but it depends on how many hours you book. I pledge to digitally deliver those images to you 1 month after your wedding date. With your permission, I often post a sneak peek gallery on the Salty Broad Instagram page. I edit the best photos and weed out redundancies. You deserve to have only the best! I also believe in clean post-production practices. I am not going to disguise your natural beauty with trendy filters.
Do you ever use an assistant or second shooter?
I usually work alone, but it depends on the wedding. If there are many locations and hundreds of guests, I will likely bring on a second shooter.
Do you cover weddings off-Cape?
Yes, I book weddings any where in New England and beyond. If travel beyond a 60-mile radius is necessary, a travel fee will be assessed. If your wedding requires an overnight stay, the cost of the accommodations will be added to the package price.
If you are planning a destination wedding, count me in! I love to travel will and would be happy to be part of the festivities. For pricing info, check out my premium packages (Chapoquoit, Dowses and Race Point). Travel and overnight stays can be included in the package price in place of second shooter and/or an engagement shoot. Let’s talk to make sure the package price point works for your occasion!
What if it rains?
I am prepared for anything and everything. I always travel with a portable strobe kit and several flash units. If the weather brings us indoors, I have plenty of lighting devices to make you and your guests look great.
What kind of cameras do you use?
I use professional level Nikon camera equipment with a wide variety of lenses and lighting.
Who does your printing?
I use White House Custom Colour, a premier photo finishing lab trusted by industry professionals around the world. I highly recommend ordering printed products through my site for the sake of investing in quality and posterity. I keep my print prices reasonable because I am passionate about excellent presentation and accessibility.
What do you require for booking?
The signing of a contract and a 35% deposit.
