I’m particular when it comes to quality. I love good coffee. A single origin pour over from Kenya or Ethiopia is my favorite. I’m a fan of hoppy IPAs and bourbon. There’s a good chance my shoes match my bag, and my belt. I’m a sucker for amazing leather goods.


While I’m an urbanite through and through, nothing calls to me like the mountains. An Ohio native, I lived in Chicago for nine years.

With formal training in film photography, my professional adventure as a photographer has primarily been self-taught. After 14 years of photographing weddings, I am able to look back and see a road filled with creative growth, personal ups and downs, and, most importantly, a collection of images that I am immensely proud of. I approach weddings from an artistic angle, focusing on what others might ignore. It’s possible I have undiagnosed OCD, but that is a good thing in this profession.

My art improves because of my eye for detail. Each couple I photograph, and their unique love story, inspire me to create my best work.
