Whether I'm working or traveling the world, photography consumes my life - and I love it! My father was a wedding photographer and continues to be a huge inspiration in my life. At the age of 8 he gave me my first film SLR camera; I photographed my first wedding by his side that same year for a family friend.
Over the years a hobby turned into a passion, which turned into a career. I really love what I do and that dedication makes a world of difference in the quality of work I am able to deliver. They say if you do what you love you'll never work a day in your life and I could not agree more.
Wedding photography is about more than just beautiful photographs. The relationships I've built over the years with all of my amazing clients is one of my favorite parts of my job.
