My Style

"As a photographer, I write my clients stories through images. Stories of new beginnings, and individuals choosing to trust. The best pictures happen when people are wrapped up in the moment, intoxicated by the experience, trusting and completely unaware of the camera. At that moment, inhibition and pretense disappear to reveal what is honest in all of us...and basic human nature shines through.

I encourage this transformation by taking the time necessary to foster real connections with my clients. At each wedding, it is my goal to be an unobtrusive storyteller, documenting the tender and dramatic moments of their day. I am particularly motivated by a desire to portray the unique bond that makes my clients radiant on their wedding day. I feel the world could use a lot more images of real, beautiful people."
