A Court-Appointed Virginia Wedding Officiant and Professional Photographer All-in-One!
Looking for someone to officiate your Virginia wedding and take photographs? I can do both for you!
Being a professional wedding photographer since 2009, I made the decision in 2016 to become a wedding officiant. This way I am able to offer BOTH officiant and photographer services to my clients who wish to elope or have a very small, short, intimate wedding ceremony.
Many couples who choose to elope do not have time to find both an available wedding officiant and photographer for the same date and time. I am proud to say that my clients have in me not only a trust-worthy, organized and prompt marriage commissioner (or modern day Justice of the Peace if you will)...but also a professional photographer who has photographed hundreds of weddings.
Here is a list of the following wedding services I offer:
Elopement and Small Wedding Officiating
As a court-appointed marriage commissioner, I will officiate your short elopement or small wedding ceremony and file all necessary paperwork with the VA circuit court that issued your marriage license.
Professional Elopement / Small Wedding Photography
As a professional photographer with many years of wedding experience, I will capture photographs of both of you together allowing you remember your special day for many years to come.
Photo Post-Production and Editing
Selected photographs that I take during your wedding will be cropped, color-corrected and enhanced to truly reflect how memorable your day is.
Digital Files and Printing Release
You receive all edited photographs as large high-resolution JPEG files along with a lifetime printing release, allowing you to print and use the photographs for personal use.
Online Secure Photo Gallery
Your photographs will be placed in a password-protected online gallery allowing you to share them with family and friends with the ability to order prints.
Wedding Announcement Design and Printing
Celebrate your marriage and announce it to friends and family with custom designed wedding announcement cards! I handle the design and printing, and have them delivered directly to you for addressing.
Affordable Elopement and Wedding Officiant and Photography Packages
A variety of very affordable options for couples looking to get married.
