YOU + ME
As your photographer, I'm always exposing not only for the light, but for the emotion. It's the telling moments I seek — the natural relationships between people and that spontaneous energy that comes forth when encouraged by a friendly lens. I delight in the timeless joy such pictures bring and relish their ability to preserve love, laughter, and life. This is the passion for me, one I'd like to share with you!
More than just great photographs, I want you to enjoy our experience together as a whole: from initial meet, to session, and long after. Our time should be remembered as collaborative, honest, and most of all, fun. Whether I'm photographing a wedding, an engagement, or portrait — your narrative is one-of-a-kind, and I'm excited to get to know you and listen. I recognize the importance of your event, and I'm committed to capturing the spirit of your day in the most genuine and artful of ways. Combining unobtrusive camerawork with relaxed portraiture, my promise is to always be a motivating energy as we work together, and your comfort will reward with the most authentic of images.
Raised in Boston, I moved to Southern California after studying film and photography at Ithaca College in upstate New York. I got a taste of Hollywood working with the phenomenal talents of the Academy Award-winning visual effects studio, Rhythm & Hues. And then, in 2007, after tying a knot of my own, began shooting weddings and portraits after I discovered that documenting real stories and real emotions can be just as thrilling as movie fiction. My wife & I are now the parents of a beautiful little girl, and if I'm not photographing a session with you, you can bet I'm getting in some good picture time with her. I've met so many wonderful clients over the years, and I'm thankful not only for their friendship, but for the invitation to document their lives. I welcome the opportunity to celebrate with you. I offer not only my eye, but ear. Please do not hesitate to contact me, and let's explore!
