A little about my style:
I like to combine the beautiful editorial images that you love seeing in the pages of a magazine, with the photojournalistic moments you don't always see happening. Gorgeous editorial inspired by the pages of Vogue, GQ, and Vanity Fair meets classic photojournalistic emotional moments. I was lucky to learn photography from an award winning photographer-mentor, on film, so nailing an image right in the camera separates me from the pack. I know there are no second chances during your wedding, and I intend to get the shot the first time, leaving you to be present in the moment.
A little about me:
I have been a professional photographer for 15 years, starting out in my hometown of Kansas City, MO (home of the best BBQ in the USA) before moving on to Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI and finally Chicago, IL. After a time as a fashion and commercial photographer, I progressed in to the world of weddings. When I am not shooting across the globe, (I travel about 100,000 miles per year!) I love to cook and discover new and unique wines, my family history is generations in Napa, California.
