About Us

Summerhouse specializes in photojournalistic style wedding photography. I photograph in both black and white and color, with a focus on documentary style, candid photography. I use the finest 35mm Leica film cameras with Leica lenses, as well as medium format and art cameras I use for portraiture and experimental imagery. I believe that the quality of real film is unmatched by digital technology, and allows for greater artistic expression.

I place special attention on the design of your wedding album. I understand the fine balance between the bride and groom's desire for a keepsake of the wedding day, and the importance of the wedding album as a family record that will last for generations. My albums and final prints are created using the finest archival materials, and are designed to be beautiful and long lasting.

Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime celebration. Summerhouse Photography is dedicated to creating a beautiful, lasting document of your wedding day.

I would be honored to be a part of your celebration, and I always approach my responsibilites with the utmost respect and professionalism, but not without a sense of humor and a spirit of fun. I would love to be included in your wedding day.
