I truly believe your wedding photographer should be someone you like and resonate with. My job is to document one of the most important days of your life, so it's crucial we connect on a personal level. In fact, photographers are with you more than any other vendor, so it's important you feel like we click. To do this, I form a close relationship with all of my clients to ensure the real YOU is captured.

my story

Shooting weddings bridges so many elements of my life passions together: surrounding myself with positive people, traveling to amazing locations, and documenting life’s once in a lifetime moments. I realized that I could do photojournalism on people’s best day, rather than their worst. Most photographers avoid weddings due to their chaotic nature. I’m the complete opposite. After experiencing raw combat, nothing phases me and I thrive at weddings. I've photographed weddings since 2014, and I fall in love with them more and more after each passing year.

The moment I discovered weddings, everything changed.

While serving in the Army in Germany, I developed a passion for traveling and documenting everything I experienced. I bought a little Sony point-and-shoot camera that I carried everywhere, and I’d photograph my experiences, whether it be exploring Europe or during a dicey mission in Iraq. Once I left the military in 2010, I attended school for photojournalism and had dreams of being a war photographer. A few years later I photographed my first wedding...

Couples who work with me know that I always go the extra mile. From the first time we meet, I strive to be considered a friend rather than "the photographer". To do this, I get to know you and your fiancé, listen to your story, and understand your unique wants, needs, and values so that I can truly capture who you are at the core. 

Having just married last year, I know that planning a wedding is stressful. But you don't need to worry about your photography. I got you!

My clients know that amidst the chaos of planning the biggest day of their lives, they no longer need to stress about photography. They can relax and stay present on their wedding day.
