As a wedding photographer, my role is a special one. I’m being invited to capture two people on the most romantic, joyous day of their lives, and the experience is often just as emotional for me as it is for the couple. There’s something really amazing, a really unique energy, that happens in wedding photography, which is why I’m so happy to be doing this as my life’s art and work.
My love for documentary stems from my history in music photography. For much of my career, my photographic skills grew inside the media pits of concert venues. Those years have taught me that the important moments we experience cannot be forced or staged. They have to happen naturally and grabbed at just the right second.
My photos are artistic and in the documentary style, so couples can just live in the moment with one another and be photographed as they really are. I encourage all of my clients to be their true selves, which happens when they feel comfortable with me and the freedom I give them to simply enjoy being with each other on their day.
I am an artist and an old soul who loves to bike on vintage cruisers, drive through the mountains, and scour beaches for sea glass. I take every opportunity to stare at the night sky and make a wish each time I spot a shooting star. Soon, I will sit on the beach in St. Kitts, visit a castle or two on a foggy afternoon in Ireland, watch the aurora borealis directly over my head and, although I cannot pronounce it, I will stand before Icelands breathtakingly beautiful Eyjafjallajökull volcano in person.
