I believe quality photography is an investment not to be taken for granted. We relive our lives through memories and photographs. Your wedding day photos will serve as vivid reminders of what you felt, every step along the way. My passion and promise is to deliver stellar images that will stand the test of time. The artistic quality of your photos will stand out and say much about you and your style.

I love to work with couples who value photography and set aside time in their day, enabling me to create romantic and beautiful images. I promise you I will find cool and epic spots for your portraits and tell your unique wedding day story in candid and real photographs.

My style has been described as timeless, romantic, and elegant. My goal is to give my couples the most beautiful and artistic photographs of their wedding, while keeping the experience fun and relaxed. I limit myself to shoot only 24 weddings a year in order to provide the quality, attention to detail, and individualized attention all of my couples demand and deserve.

The Investment:

Elopement commissions  begin at $999

Wedding commissions begin at $2199

Engagement commissions begin at $349

My approach is relaxed and always centered on your experience. I welcome a consultation with couples on how to plan your wedding around the best light of the day.  How do you imagine the photos that will tell your wedding story?
Contact me, and let’s get a conversation started.

All the best,
Stephen Orlick

Beloved sessions

This new genre of portrait session know as Beloved is as much about the experience of connecting with your partner, as it is about the resulting images. 

The Beloved session is for two people who have been in a long-term relationship and would like to give themselves a gift of time together celebrating their relationship and love.

The Beloved session is about taking the attention off of the bills, kids and job and instead focus on the love that was so easy to feel in the early days of a relationship but is lost when life’s responsibilities and stress take over your life.

The Beloved portrait sessions involves fun, almost interview-like questions where you interact with your partner to remember that connection… that spark… that powerful love you once felt for each other so easily.  It’s still there (in most cases) but it’s buried under crazy schedules, worries about money and the day-to-day junk that pile up over the years.

Relight the candle. Take a day to celebrate your love. I promise you’ll take away so much more than just beautiful portraits. You’ll create cherished art for your home that will remind you on a daily basis how you felt when you made the effort and took the time to share your soul with the one you fell in love with.
