BIO

I take pride and pleasure in every wedding I photograph. My style is that of a "Storyteller". This allows me to capture the unscripted candid moments of your wedding. With attention to detail, my team and I document every unique moment of your special day; allowing you to relax and enjoy the moment with the confidence of knowing that you'll have beautiful photographic memories to cherish for a lifetime.

How did I get started? Around the age of five (1979), my father returned from a two year military tour in Japan. He brought back with him a Canon 35mm camera. Well, being the curious kid that I was, I disregarded his instructions to leave his camera alone and played around with it. When he took the roll in to be developed, he found pictures that he did not take. He asked who used his camera. Well, I had to come clean and tell him it was me. He stated that in the full year that he owned the camera, he never took pictures as great as I did. So he gave me the camera. Ever since then I've been in love with photographing moments in time!
