Spend your wedding with family and friends. Not with me.

I've always had a certain philosophy about weddings, but it wasn't until I got married that I really understood them. Now when I photograph a wedding, I relive my own.

On June 22, 2013, after many years together, Sarah and I finally got married and celebrated with all of our friends and family. It felt like such a big deal! I mean, people set aside the date, took time to plan, spent money on gifts, babysitters or plane tickets, then got dressed up—all for us. It was a very humbling experience and one of the best days of my life. At the same time, I couldn't believe how quickly it went by. One minute I was waiting for the ceremony to begin, and the next, the DJ was playing the last song. Between dancing, delays, and just being pulled in every direction, time slipped away.

What my experience taught me is that weddings are meant to be enjoyed, and everything else is just a distraction. I want to be one less distraction on your wedding day. I want you to enjoy it as much as possible, and one way I can help you do that is by being as unobtrusive as possible. By working discreetly and allowing things to happen naturally, I can make beautiful images while allowing you to enjoy your day to the fullest.
