Why I Love Weddings:

Throughout the last seven years as a professional photographer, I have had the opportunity to explore and master many genres of photography including portraiture, still, and architectural. I love capturing weddings because it encompasses all aspects of photography in one special day, allowing me to utilize my skill set to create lasting memories that will be cherished for generations to come. Being surrounded by the joy and love of the day fuels my spirit in a way that genuinely feels divine and connects me to something larger than myself. I pour my heart and soul into my work because I know that it will be adored forever. 

A Little Bit About Myself:

As a very young boy I remember asking my mother how a camera works. She bought me a children's book to explain it, and the adventure began. To this day, photography acts as a vessel connecting me to the people and places in this world, close and far. When I don’t have a camera in my hand, you can find me at the hospital where I work as a registered nurse aiding cancer patients back to health. Being granted this privilege to help individuals in need is extremely rewarding and has offered me a deep perspective on life. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to carry out my two passions in life. 

Other Interests:
I really love the outdoors! Biking, hiking, camping, name it!; I love being outside with nature and exploring new places. My goal is to travel more once things clear up with COVID-19.  I’ve played soccer my entire life as a goalie and tend to thrive in intense situations (penalty kicks were my favorite!) . I attribute my thousands of hours of team sports to the discipline and ambition that I have today.  I also really enjoy practicing yoga, meditating, playing Ping-Pong, cooking, and reading captivating stories.
