Why I Love Weddings:
It is a true honor to be able to capture a couple’s most intimate and treasured moments.
I am able to connect with people of all colors, creeds, religious beliefs, and orientations through their feelings for each other and the love they have!
I love to see how my work inspires happiness in my clients, as I use my gift and love of taking photos to create lasting memories.
A Little Bit About Myself:
I am a photography GEEK. I read, watch and listen to anything I can about equipment, lighting, composition, history, and technique to perfect my skills.
When I’m not shooting freelance work, I apply everything I learn to taking photos of friends, family, and anything else that catches my eye.
My family means the world to me. I drive my wife up the wall with my need to have my camera within a 10-foot radius, but she forgives me because I love to take photos of my beautiful daughter, Ellie! Wedding, lifestyle and family photography all give me the privilege of capturing moments and emotions that I connect with and am grateful for every day.
I have a fair amount of choral experience, and sing as a countertenor, primarily in sacred early music ensembles.
My other interests revolve around my family-particularly my two-year-old daughter. Our time is dominated by kitchen dance parties sound-tracked by Imagine Dragons and super-hero movie binge-watching snuggled up with ‘blankies’.
Also of interest to me are the needs of my pregnant wife, with an emphasis there on major foot-rubs. In my ‘spare time’, I try to fit in the occasional video game!
