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:
I love spending the day with brides and grooms creating wedding day memories that will last a lifetime. I hunt for moments that cannot be recreated or relived. I love capturing the raw emotion of a wedding day. I want to be the best not only for myself but especially for my clients. If I didn’t wake up every morning with excitement about photography I would simply hang my camera up and find another career.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I've done shoots with families, H.S seniors, corporate executives, engaged couples, and kids. I make them special by having fun, making the clients feel super comfortable in front of the camera, and being myself!
