2021 Weddings

Wedding Photos


Wedding Photography is booking up fast for me for 2021.  If you would like to reserve your date, please call me as soon as possible to talk about what you are looking for in a wedding photographer and to chat about your wedding plans.  I love small weddings and I love large weddings.  I've done many of both.

I specialize in traditional/photojournalism/fine art style wedding photography.  I make sure to take many candid images of your wedding and guests' joyful celebration throughout the day.  I also take some time, usually between your ceremony and reception, to guide you and your wedding party or special guests into classic and contemporary poses so you can have styled, gorgeous group shots as well.

My primary focus is on providing every client with unobtrusive, professional photography services that allow the wedding festivities to carry on, uninterrupted by my work.  With my low-key style I am able to capture the precious details and once-in-a-lifetime moments without disturbing the natural flow of the day.

If you are interested in interviewing me for your wedding photos, please call me at 518-429-0931.  I hope I get to meet you! 

Why is photography important?

October 27, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Photographs become reminders of our history...documenting moments in time that might otherwise be forgotten.

Burke Anniversary-9172Burke Anniversary-9172

It is so important because it freezes memories and captures moments in time that you'll be able to remember and cherish years. If you look at the images that people save, usually it's photos of their family, friends, pets, places, and items they love.  

Photography is a vision, it’s art, it is imagination, and it is observation.  It is a way to explore the world, and experience day to day life with a camera.  It is a powerful tool to tell a story or to share a moment.  

That's why photography is so important in our world today and for future generations.

Great photography takes both technical skills and artistry. 

I am more than just a "picture taker".  I am a student of lighting, posing, fashion and even interior design.  I combine these elements to create works of art that don't just match your budget...they also fit perfectly with your family's unique characteristics and your personal style.

Give me a call at 518-429-0931 and let's talk about your vision.


Senior Photography -- Book your session now

Professional photography is so much more than just snapping a picture.  It's the technique and experience to consistently capture the highest quality photographs, regardless of the situation.  It's the artistry and vision to get that one shot--that one look--that is so uniquely your high school senior.  It's the professionalism to guide you through the process of creating works of art you will treasure for a lifetime.

Senior Photography Season is Upon Us!

August 27, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

High School senior photos capture one of the most special times in a person's young life.  These are days that you will want to remember forever with amazing professional photographs. 

I approach a senior session with finding out the senior's interests and then make sure the photos reflect those interests.  What's their look?  How do I create photographs that tell the world who they are...I strive to create photos you're happy to share with family and friends. 

For everyday photos, you may be fine with a neighbor, a friend or your sister-in-law.  But when it comes to these once-in-a-lifetime moments, you need to make sure the person behind the camera is a proven professional photographer. 

Call 518-429-0931 or email [email protected] to book an appointment.

Your Wedding Album


Your wedding album is a piece of your story, a cherished heirloom generations of friends and family members will enjoy. It’s a display piece that you can leaf through on an anniversary or special occasion, or just on a rainy day.

It’s a central go-to to remember your biggest day, and the people, places and all those perfect details that made it great—and a custom album designed with your specific needs, budget and wedding day in mind is the ultimate way to keep the excitement and the special moments alive forever.


There are many shapes and styles to choose from including albums from Italy and acrylic cover albums.
