Wedding Storyteller

I'm a photographer, not a speed dater... I am not going to try to sell you with a quick list of totally random, non-photo related facts.  Let's be honest, you’re probably not going to book me simply because we both think Stumptown coffee is awesome and we both love the color green... Am I right?

Face time

is always better...

Instead of attempting to start a friendship with a generic list, I propose we actually get to know each other in person. Call me old fashioned, but I really do think face time is the best way to start a friendship. If you don't live in Los Angeles, we can go the Apple route and FaceTime instead! If you are local, let's meet for coffee and at least see if we're a fit! If we are, we can do more fun stuff together! Having this solid foundation will ensure a better working relationship. We'll feel more comfortable in each other's presence and ultimately, we'll all have a better experience.

I promise that all of the non-photo related facts, likes and dislikes will be shared in time, probably while enjoying Stumptown coffee served in green cups. :)

wedding photography...

My work as a photographer began almost eleven years ago as a young sports photography intern at Getty Images way back in 2008. As a freelancer I covered baseball, football, basketball, rowing, tennis and dozens of NASCAR races. Yes, NASCAR...

My experience at Getty sharpened my eye for composition, light and timing. The technical challenges were amazing, but as time passed, the nature of the work became impersonal and systematic. Another touchdown, another home run, another victory lane… I was just one of a gang of photographers trying to capture the same moment. I felt like my life’s work was becoming a commodity. I growingly became frustrated and disillusioned with my professional journey. Something had to change.

Then it hit me. How can I be truly passionate about my work when I don’t have any personal connection whatsoever with the people that I'm covering? As a sports photographer, I was always at arms length from my subjects – 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 so gratifying about capturing two people madly in love, handing them the images images and then hearing how their experience brought them even closer in their relationship. This is the joy that wedding photography brings me.

2019 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. It would be an honor to hear from you!
