I have been using photography to capture the beautiful and timeless story of weddings since 2005.
Artists run in my family. With an architect father and planner mother, my parents built a solid foundation for my love of photography. I have always loved photography, but I didn’t follow through on that calling until I graduated from college.
For me, college was especially important. There, I learned the true value of human relationships – something every photographer must understand. As a student, I was fortunate enough to meet my wife – and have been in love ever since.
A wedding, to me, is God’s timeless union of two souls on earth. It is happiness, joy, hope and the memories on which the future is created. A wedding is all of this, and more.
Why do I love shooting weddings? Because every wedding is unpredictable, different with every couple. Weddings are enticing events, drawing people in with the irresistible pull of great love, great hope and the magic of new beginnings.
Couples often ask me, which wedding was your favorite? Or, what is your philosophy? My answer has remained the same over the years. I don’t know how I do it – I simply do.
We all see the world differently, and I believe my talent for telling stories through photography is a gift from God. I am neither especially clever, nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious. I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination during some of life’s most important moments.
Simply put, I capture the moments that could never be put into words.
