I've been a photographer for 15 years, and have been photographing weddings full-time as owner of Chase Images for the last 9 years. I’ve photographed over 150 weddings in my career.
My style of shooting is relaxed and fun! I want to help tell your story with a mix of both candid and posed moments. I edit wedding photos in a straight forward, classic style to ensure your photos look timeless.
Absolutely! Engagement sessions are a great way to become familiar with how I work and it gives me an opportunity to get to know you better. Couples that have done engagement sessions are typically more comfortable and know what to expect by the time the wedding arrives.
Yes, I have 3 other assistant photographers that I’ve been working with for years. We’ve photographed countless weddings together and they each have a similar style to my own to ensure consistency.
Some of my absolute favorite weddings have taken place on rainy or snowy days! Being based in Pittsburgh, I can pretty much count on rain for at least a few weddings every year, therefore I always have a backup plan in mind. Before your wedding day, I identify multiple locations for your photos, both outside and inside, and have umbrellas on hand to protect us from any inclement weather. The most important thing is to not stress if it rains. Embrace it, and know that you will get beautiful photos regardless of the weather!
One of the most important requirements of being a wedding photographer is to have backup equipment. I always have several spare camera bodies, lenses, flashes, batteries, and memory cards on hand.
As soon as the wedding has concluded, I upload the photos onto 2 different hard drives as well as an online backup to ensure there are multiple copies.
I’ve never missed a wedding and I don’t plan on it! However, if I am physically unable to attend your wedding, I will appoint my team of photographers to cover my responsibilities. You will never be without photographers on your big day!
Yes. Many venues now require photographers to have liability insurance. I’m happy to send the required documents if needed.
For sure! I’ve photographed weddings in Philly, Maryland and Washington D.C. Additional travel and accommodation fees may apply.
I will go over your individual timeline, family formals list and any other concerns you may have before the wedding. If it is a venue I am not familiar with, I always do a pre-wedding scouting trip to ensure we use the best locations for photos.
I believe in sending you the edited photos in the most timely manner possible. It will take approximately 6-8 weeks, depending upon my current wedding schedule, to complete and send your photos. I will post several 'sneak peeks' on social media in the meantime for you to enjoy.
Yes. Your photos will be sent to you on a USB drive if you choose to print on your own. You also have the option to purchase professional prints directly from your online gallery.
Digital photos are fast and convenient to share online, but can sometimes be forgotten over time. Picking up an album, and reliving the memories through the printed photos is an entirely different experience. An album will ensure that you and your family, as well as future generations, can enjoy your wedding photos for years to come.
An unplugged wedding is essentially when your guests put away their cell phones, iPads, electronic devices during your ceremony. This can help your guests better enjoy the event, and be present in the moment. It also allows the photographers you've hired to capture the best photos possible. Your guests are welcome to use personal phones/cameras during the reception but rest assured, Chase Images will be capturing all of these moments and more for you!
Yes, we are absolutely LGBT friendly.
