Hero Image

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’.
