Why I Love Weddings:
I simply love weddings because I love, LOVE. It’s an honor when a couple chooses me to capture one of the most important moments of their lives. Additionally, with each wedding I strive to obtain memories that the couple will be able to cherish with generations to come.

A Little Bit About Myself:
I am one of seven siblings from a town called Asbury Park, NJ. Just in case you never heard of Asbury Park, here is a list of the local celebrities: Bruce Springsteen, Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, and Tyshawn Jenkins. I have always had a passion for art; even at a young age I began to draw pictures in great detail. A graduate of The College of New Jersey, I obtained a Bachelors of Fine Arts with a concentration in computer graphics. I’m furthered my education by pursuing my Masters of Business Administration. Photography combined with graphic editing software allows me capture a moment and enhance it with endless possibilities.

Some interesting facts about myself are that I am a humanitarian, U.S. Airman and member of the United States Air Force Honor Guard, and an actor. In addition, I have been in three major films; and traveled to Mexico where I built a home for an impoverished family.

Most Memorable Wedding Moment:
My most memorable wedding moment would have to be when I had the opportunity to capture a photo of a couple with their uncle. They were in a rush to get to their reception, but I had a strong feeling that we needed this shot. A month later after the wedding the couple reached out to me crying and expressing their gratitude for advising they take that photograph with their uncle because he had passed the following day and that was the last image they with him. As photographers we don’t know how great of a impact we have on individuals; that’s why I give 100 percent in wedding photography, and life overall.
