i thought for a long time about what to write here and realized something: my photos should say it all. you’re not going to see any awards, badges, or “top 10 lists” here because all that matters to me is that you love what you see in my imagery. mostly, i show portrait work because it’s the time of day during most weddings where i have the maximum creative control and my vision comes through the strongest. of course, wedding days are about a lot more than just portraits and i’m happy to share full galleries with you upon inquiry.


i approach weddings as a storyteller and realize that the last image of the day can be just as important as the first. i know you’ll enjoy your photos for the rest of your life and that they have value well beyond what you pay for them. for these reasons, i offer packages with full day coverage and no limit on images taken.


everything in my business is done by myself. from the first e-mail to the blog post and final delivery of your usb key and album… it’s always me. i’m inspired by my clients and strive to make images that reflect who they are together and as individuals.


my style isn’t for everybody, but for those that feel it is i hope to talk with you soon.
