Artist statement: Simply put – I LOVE my job.
I feel privileged to be able to make art every day and to share it with amazing couples in love.
I was given my first real camera at age 12 and I was hooked for life. Through the twists and turns of fate, I shot my first wedding at 19 and have never looked back.
My approach to photography is intuitive and emotional, influenced by photojournalism, fine art and fashion. My goal is to make images that bleed passion and color, seep humor and excitement, and expose the beautiful, whimsical, spontaneous moments of real life and love.
I will travel anywhere and love to meet new people.
