My grandfather has always been one to get the details right. Use the best archival materials, keep learning and create something worth keeping. Heirlooms. It’s how I was raised.

I try to incorporate those life lessons in everything I do, from picture-taking to parenting my little girl, and being a good husband. Your memories are important, and I respect that. As a photographer, my goal is to create timeless portraits that are influenced by my love of cinema. Bright, clean and vibrant colors, captured photographs that reflect the client, not the pose.

I’m a technical guy, and I love to use flash lighting to enhance the photograph. I don’t want to be limited by natural light but I strive to create a finished photograph that embraces it, even if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Some say that editing makes the photograph. I disagree. While some minor editing may be necessary, a well-composed, beautiful portrait doesn’t require it.

What is required is a connection. You need to feel comfortable with inviting a photographer into your special day. You want to feel that click. I do too. Yes, I’m a photographer by trade, but I think it’s more than a business transaction. My business is based on strong family traditions and values. This business is based on relationships, developed over time. I’d like to be the one you turn to for those exciting times in your lives. I’d like to see your children grow up, and I’m happy to share my family as well.

It’s why we do what we do.
