About me

I love shooting weddings and your wedding is just as important to me as it is to you (ok, maybe not exactly just as important as it is to you but pretty dang close). Being married myself, I know how important these images will be in your life everyday after and it's very exciting for me to walk into your day knowing that at the end, you're going to have great pictures of one of the most special days in your life. Your wedding day is going to pass by so fast that, in the end, it's just going to be one big blur of excitement and happiness (and your face is going to hurt from smiling so much). You're going to spend a lot of time carefully planning every detail about your day. My job is to freeze that day in photographs capturing it just as it happened. 


As I shoot throughout the day, I'm always conscious about making images that you are going to want to look at forever. My mission is to make images that you can't wait to hang in your home. I'll do nearly anything to get the picture. I've actually been compared to a ninja at times at weddings, which totally satisfies my inner child. I want to be so unobtrusive that you forget that I'm there because when you know that I'm there, you're more concious about what you're doing and how you're going to look in the photo rather than just enjoying the moment. And when you enjoy the moment and forget that I'm there, that's when the best pictures happen. 


My style is not for everyone, and that's ok. But if you  really like the images below, then I really want to talk to you! I'd like to learn about your special day and your expecations of me as your photographer. 

Let's make incredible photographs together!!
