"There is a time for risky love. There is a time for extravagant gestures. There is a time to pour out your affections on one you love.
And when the time comes --seize it, don't miss it." --Max Lucado

Can you explain your over all process?

1. Once the event is complete, I review all of your photographs and select ~500-700 of the very best ones. About 4 weeks later I post the finished photos to a private on-line gallery for your enjoyment. At that time you be provided a link to download all of the high resolution photos. You are  given full reproduction rights over the photographs.

2. Once they are released to you, you can share them with your family and friends by giving them the link to your on-line gallery. Guests can also order prints and digital downloads if they wish.

3. If you have opted for an album, you will then select your favorite photos from the final set of photographs.

4. Once I receive your selections, I then use them to design your album. Once the design is done, I will present it to you via an on-line gallery.

5. Once you approve the design and select your cover material, the album is created for you. If you live outside of Rochester, I will ship your album directly to you at no charge.


Beautiful leather combined with premium binding makes these albums a luxurious choice. A gorgeous leather stitched case is also included with your album.

Various leather colors and prints allows you to create the desired look of your album. Each album features fully retouched images from your collection, designed into a visual story that documents the time with your loved ones who came to celebrate with you. Using a clean artistic design style, I partner with you to design your album using your favorite photographs from your day.
