I fell into photography 4 years ago as I was published while living abroad in Indonesia. I had 'semi-retired' after selling my ownership in a my family's restaurant.I got my start shooting our menu items and staff there. Including skills sets with staff and clients, styling food and people. I think because of my background in a high traffic/profile resatraunt dealing with dynamic public relations my photography career has had a faster arc than usual. I do come from a creative background and have worked rewriting scripts. New endeavors do not make me nervous and I take it as a personal growth method when I can put new clients or people at ease......the karma helps too

I am a self-taught wedding and lifestyle photographer based in sunny San Diego! My beautiful, spunky, and insanely intelligent wife Julie, Rezzy the cattle dog, and Frodo the cat keep my life colorfully focused, organized and always entertained. My home away from home is the lovely midwest city of Indianapolis, Indiana! Over the past 11 years in business, I have documented over 300 weddings from east to west. I have traveled and photographed weddings and engagement shoots in Mexico, Belize, California, Indiana, Ohio, Vermont, Utah, Minneapolis, Wisconsin, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Alabama. I still get nervous before every wedding I photograph. If I didn’t have nervous tension, I probably would have lost the drive and passion for what I love doing the most. The reason for my love of wedding photography is simple:
