I made my way into photography through being a musician. (I play drums, guitar, and I sing...oh and piano. But I'm not good at that any more.) I traveled with a youth conference called Acquire the Fire for 2 years, leading a band across the country and playing in arenas/churches along the way. During the first year on the road, I got me my first digital camera. I couldn't have been more stoked. I made the most of every opportunity, shooting every concert and speaker during those years.
I had a few friends who got engaged shortly after I got off of touring and told them I'd shoot the weddings for whatever they could afford. And I LOVED it. Sure it was crazy and I had no idea what I was doing but I was making money doing something I loved. It was so surreal and I loved it.
Since then, I've shot roughly 75 weddings and almost as many engagements. The weddings ranging from 15 people gathered in a living room to 500 in a massive conference center. I've seen the good, the bad, the beautiful and the memorable and I'm still shooting to this day.
So why me?
It's my joy and pleasure to serve you for whatever your occasion is. I have a distinct passion for weddings though. Being newly married myself, I know just how special the wedding day is! It's a big blur of seeing relatives you never knew were alive as well as seven thousand old friends all wanting a selfie with you. It's the fastest/craziest/most beautiful day possible. And I love being in the background documenting it all. From the groom's wide grin as his bride walks down the aisle to the first dances and beyond, it's an unforgettable day that I take the utmost joy in shooting.
I want to capture moments that last through the ages.
