I absolutely LOVE my life! I never expected to be as fortunate as I have been to get to wake up every morning and do what I do. I have an unbelievably amazing wife with whom I get to share all these wonderful experiences. Not only is she a great business partner, but she is a very talented photographer in her own right. I have two loving little dogs, and I am always surrounded by great colleagues, fantastic friends, and a loving family. I am truly a lucky guy! The current wedding market is too heavily focused on branding and marketing-- somewhere along the line I think everyone forgot that wedding photography is about caring deeply for the amazing people we get to work with. Capturing all the wonderful moments that make up a wedding! Being consistent! Every couple is unique. Everyone’s needs are different. No one should do this job for the money. You have to do this job because you LOVE it! This job is the most fun I have ever had with a camera. I am so grateful to all the amazing mentors, teachers, and clients whom have given me the opportunity to do what I do for the past 21 years at the level that I do it.
