THE GUY BEHIND THE CAMERA

 

So right off the bat...I want you to know that I'm a silly guy.  I love laughing and having a good time.  I love making my clients laugh, and engaging their sense of humor.  The way I look at it...if we're not having fun together, then the pictures will look like we didn't have fun.


With that said...I also take my photography very seriously.  They say that if you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life - and I have the pleasure of living that reality.


I have been working as a professional wedding photographer since 2010.  Weddings  and engagements are my specialty!  I absolutely love meeting new people and making them look amazing.  I see myself as a kind of family historian, artfully capturing your memories so they look like they belong on a magazine cover. 


Portrait photography started for me while I was living in Fairbanks, Alaska.  After moving to Alaska a few years earlier, and seeing the incredible landscape and wildlife, I became very interested in being able to capture that beauty in a photograph.  Unfortunately my camera wasn’t doing a very good job of it, so I invested in a "nice" camera.  Once my friends saw that I had a nice camera, I began getting requests to take pictures of their families.  From that point on, I was a portrait photographer, and I haven’t looked back.


I now live in Delaware with my little dog Chewy, and have been blessed with lots of couples that have allowed me to be part of their lives for their big day.

This is me acting silly...I can't help myself.
