I’m not one to blab about myself, but for us to really connect, it’s really important that we get to know each other.
Pretty much right out of high school, I impulsively joined the Army. I didn’t really know what I was getting into but I knew it was going to be an adventure. I ended up deploying twice but it was during my first tour in Afghanistan when I found my love for photography. I bought a decent camera and started shooting this crazy part of the world where I called home for a year. National Geographic shot a documentary (Inside The Green Berets) on my camp and ended up using my photos to promote their documentary. I was instantly turned on by the thrill of telling stories through images. Not to sound cheesy but it’s a pretty great feeling when you finally find the one thing you want to do for the rest of your life.
After exploring different avenues in photography, I found my niche in wedding photography. I quickly realized that there is nothing more rewarding than having the responsibility of documenting that incredible day in a couples life. Documenting that connection between two humans. It’s something I take very seriously. And while I may sound like the most serious person on planet earth, rest assured I’m a pretty laid back dude with a laid back philosophy. You be you. I’ll be me. The best images will come when you can really just let go and be yourself. I know, deep thoughts right? Well enough jibber-jabbering about me, I want to hear about you. I wanna hear your story. What get you excited about photography? Drop me a line and let’s get to talkin’.
