hi there!

My name is Phil and I love making you look and feel amazing. At any event, I pride myself in being part cheerleader, part therapist, part time-keeper, part best photographer you've ever seen, and part grandma charmer. I keep the energy great all day long.

xoxo, PHil

I can definitely accommodate smaller weddings. I love these kinds of intimate gatherings! And no, I will not charge you for a full day if you only need me for just a few hours. Please email me for a custom quote!

We are having an intimate wedding, elopement, or a second wedding, or just a reception. It's going to be small! Do we have to pay $6500?

I never charge for travel or accommodations. If you have a spare room somewhere, great! But I have friends all over the world and I will work out my own travel and sleep if you hire me for your wedding. Consider me a local!

My wedding is in Italy, Colorado, California, somewhere else. The thought of buying your flight and paying for a hotel seems like a lot more than we budgeted for. Can you work something out?

It helps to have something for family photos, other than that, I'm on top of it!

I generally arrive about halfway through hair and makeup, to capture some behind the scenes and details

I have great video teams that I partner with, and you can hire us under one contract for a good deal.

Do I need a shot list?
When will you arrive?
Do you do video?
