An all-time enjoyer of my time and space
in this adventure called life.
I left behind a whole lot to pursue this dream and thank God it has started to prosper. In each wedding, my vision is to create something personal & unique for you, letting things happen by themselves & capturing the “in-betweens” of life. I will be a friend for you and enjoy your big day through my vision. But, above all, each image should transport you to that moment 5, 15 or 30 years later on down the road.
I am a husband (a blessed husband) and I am honored and humbled that you have found your way here and are considering whether to invite me to photograph your wedding. Weddings are amazing celebrations, comprising all of the huge building blocks of a great existence – love, laughter, new families. Weddings are often called ‘big days’, but what they are, really, is the start of big, rich lives. Big day, upon big day, upon big day. Forever. (Us married folks know all about it). So, let me say thank you for perhaps making me a part of yours, to help capture a piece of your big life on film.
Your wedding day is part of your visual legacy. For your kids and grandkids, it becomes a visual inheritance. How do you want it to look? How will you show them all those things that make you and your partner everything you are together? How do you make sure they inherit a valuable visual treasure? Tell me what dreams you have for your wedding day, and we can talk about how to build them inside a frame.
They stand nearby as you share your first kiss as husband and wife. They see every tear, catch every embrace, watch your first meal, first dance and are there every time you give THAT look.
To be able to deal with all that as the next stage of your big life develops, you need someone who feels like a friend sometimes, a professional sometimes, a piece of the background sometimes.
You need YOUR photographer. You need a personal photographer.
does that excite or scare you?
I picked up my first camera in high school. I asked my teacher if I could take it home for the weekend. He said yes. I took some (bad) pictures.
But that was also some of my best work. That was the work that helped me realize I wanted to live out of a camera for the rest of my life. I wanted to make my camera a passport to other people’s lives. And needed my camera to mean total trust.
When I am living out of my camera, I need my clients to understand the kind of photographer they are getting. The husband, the father, the crazy guy who is treating their wedding as an experiment.
I believe there is a story in every photo. I’m not interested in documenting the minute to minute details of an event. My job is to capture that one image that tells a much bigger story & make you remember how you felt. I want to create your visual legacy.
Working with couples who see our time together as an opportunity to create art completely inspires me. Some of my favorite images have come out of a mutual desire to experiment in the moment.
In order to guarantee the imagery you have come to expect from me, I need space for creativity. If you have a strict schedule or a shot list, I can not promise the imagery will be as compelling as you would hope. Couples who see their time with me as an opportunity to get away from the chaos and enjoy one another are the couples who provide the space necessary to capture the images that tell a greater story.
