About Me


Capturing authentic moments for clients is the driving force in everything I do.
That drive and passion are what wedding & portrait photography should always be about! 
My clients choose me because they trust that I'll tell their story in an honest way, jam-packed and full of life, joy, and fun! 
By capturing how your special day or season 'feels' when you see your photos, not just the time and place.
Every detail will be beautifully captured and edited as well as personally customized through a professional online portfolio where you can share, print, and download as often as you like. I do not charge any image release or high-resolution download fees, ever! I believe in flat-rate pricing and that I am blessed to do what I love.


As a photographer, if you can’t truly feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to 'feel' anything when they look at your photos. My style is knowing that photography is a connection to life, to seasons in our lives, to family and friends, and to each person's uniqueness and each couple's love story. If I could sum up my photography and editorial style in three words, I would have to say...

Real to life!


Fun Facts

I used to consume an unhealthy amount of coffee almost every day, I enjoy the rush of obstacle course racing, prefer mountains and trails over cities and sidewalks, boots and jeans are my favorites, yet I'm also a geek that can fix almost anything. I am an oversharer, and I put away abandoned shopping carts. I'm a father of four, five if you’ve ever known a Bernese Mountain Dog. I am married to my best friend and business partner Rachel, who is also a nurse. Maci our Daughter is an accomplished videographer, my second shooter, and my most trusted helper.
