I began as a sports photographer...

My career as a photo storyteller began as a young intern at Getty Images in 2008. My experiences there allowed me to eventually craft a reputation as a multi-faceted freelancer – covering baseball, football, the Winter X-games, USC rowing, tennis and more NASCAR races than I can count.  A few favorites:

...and eventually became a wedding photographer.

My Getty Images experience sharpened my eye in composition, light and timing.  While the technical challenges were amazing, over time, the nature began to leave me feeling unfulfilled.   It became impersonal and systematic.  Another touchdown, another home run, another victory lane… I was just one of a gang of photographers trying to get the same images.  My life’s work was becoming a commodity.  I growingly became frustrated and disillusioned with my professional journey.

Then it hit me. How can I be truly passionate about my work when I don’t have a personal connection with the people that I am covering?  My subjects were always at arms-length – leaving me without the ability to truly relate to what they were feeling.

At that moment I knew I wanted to work one-on-one with my subjects.  There is something special about pouring myself into my work, then handing that work over to my clients and seeing their reaction and appreciation.  This is the joy that wedding photography brings me.  Every bride, groom, their family and friends – each different scenario and location is a new story and experience that gives my work and journey the meaning that I sought when I decided to become a storyteller.

2018 brings a rededication to my craft. I am excited to use my unique journalistic perspective and skills to work side-by-side with you to visually narrate your beautiful love story!

Let’s begin this adventure together! It would be an honor to hear from you!
