Dallas wedding photographer

Be yourself, authentically.

Since 2007

Looook... You and I both know it's not the easiest thing to be in front of the camera - I, too, don't like someone taking my photos (believe it or not!), but you must do it for your career!


None of my clients are professional models (except the few actors/actresses I have worked with in the past), and trust me; I know how to get you all comfortable in front of my camera as if you have been doing this for years.


It all boils down to how much you like my personality. We are a great fit if I can be myself around you and your team (spoiler alert, I cuss and make people laugh with silly jokes). My dentist, Dr. Iskandar's ENTIRE TEAM, hates being photographed - I was told this before our first session - but now all the dentists and assistants look forward to their photo day with me. The same thing happened with my chiropractor, Dr. B's team. I could tell everybody was a little nervous the first round around, but as soon as the session started, they laughed their bum off - even with their teammates watching them!

You can either come in for a quick 30-minute session here at my studio, or I can pack my studio gear and travel to you for an additional fee.


In my studio, I offer natural and artificial light options while on location; I mostly set up my studio as natural light may not always be enough.


We can do individual portraits, team photos, and "on-the-job" action photos. Some of my clients like me to grab a few close-up detail photos of their work/store/office to add to their website, so it's entirely up to you. We can pretty much do anything during our booked time frame.


You are welcome to give me a call or visit me at my studio before booking to ensure I'm a good fit for you and your team. I'm not pizza, I can't make everyone happy. And I'm definitely not "corporate America" material - I cuss and make silly jokes - but my clientele (who varies from attorneys to hair stylists) loves me for it.

  1. The 30-minute session is exclusively available in-studio for individuals.
  2. A signed contract and payment are necessary to reserve a date.
  3. Corporate events have a minimum booking requirement of 2 hours, available for scheduling Monday through Thursday. If you wish to book a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday more than a month in advance for hourly (à la carte) services, an additional $2000 fee applies. This fee does not apply to clients booking a 4-hour or more collection package. For team portrait sessions, we will reschedule your session at no extra cost if a wedding booking occurs on your initial date.
  4. For clients booking hourly (à la carte) services, travel within 10 miles of my studio is included. Sessions beyond 10 miles will incur a $175 travel fee. If you book one of my 4+ hour collections, travel up to 50 miles from my studio is included at no additional cost.
  5. À la Carte bookings do not include digital downloads. All digital images must be purchased separately through the online gallery. On the other hand, all Collections include access to all professionally culled and artistically edited images, which are available for download at no additional cost.
  6. Booked hours are continuous, including travel time between locations and outfit changes.
  7. Please note that all delivered photos will be edited in my signature style, ensuring consistency with the work showcased on my website. As a professional photographer, I cannot accommodate requests for editing in styles outside of my expertise and experience.
  8. The standard turnaround time for hourly sessions is 2-4 weeks and 5-8 weeks for events exceeding 8 hours. If you require your images sooner, rush editing is available for an additional fee: $350 for sessions or $500 for events. With rush editing, your gallery will be delivered within three business days.
  9. As part of my standard service, I include skin texture, blemish corrections, and minor retouches to ensure your portraits look their best. However, additional fees will apply if you require more advanced editing, such as altering the structure of an object, removing elements from the image, or manipulating the subject. These fees range from $75 to $250 per photo, depending on the complexity of the request. Please note that such requests are rare, as I take great care in delivering images that are fine-tuned to my high standards of excellence.
  10. All services are subject to Texas Sales Tax, and pricing on the website is valid only at the time of booking. If a client views older pricing information but books at a later date, the current pricing listed on the website will apply to their invoice. To lock in a particular price, it's recommended that clients book as soon as possible.
  11. Please reach out for a personalized quote for your team's photography needs.
