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! 

My Style!

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. 


Having traveled and photographed 46 States and 3 countries, my ability to empathize with my clients and couples affords us both the opportunity to connect on a level that makes for a very rich and rewarding experience that you'll never forget.

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.

I always ask...What's your love story?


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, and am a bit of a geek :0)


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.
