A born traveler, I graduated college and immediately hopped on a plane to begin my overseas journey to Australia and New Zealand. This is where my photography career was born and artistic abilities took shape.

I explored, I sailed, I soaked in every culture I could, and with my camera I grew up. When I returned to the states, I knew my life’s calling was wedding photography. My talents have led me to capture images in the most stunning places around the globe, from Africa to Australia, New Zealand to Europe, Central America, the Caribbean, and all around the States. The rest is history.

Based out of St. Petersburg, Florida I dedicate my creative spirit to wedding photography and capturing the true essence of each moment throughout your special day. My goal is to make sure I exceed all of your expectations by capturing real, timeless, and emotionally honest images in the most artistic style possible. I will deliver a final product that crosses the limits of standard wedding photography and will tell a story beyond any norms.

I am a dedicated professional with an undying passion for capturing those special moments in time that we never want to forget.

A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words

I love
my family

I am blessed with a beautiful wife and 2 beautiful boys by my side. They inspire me daily.

I love
craft beer

Cycle Brewing has an amazing stout called cream and sugar. Definitely a top 5 on my list.

I love
to travel

I got a travel bug when I graduated from college and it’s never stopped. Exploring is my second passion to photography.

I love
Nikon

I tend to bring more cameras than I can physically hold on a wedding day.  But it’s worth it.

I love
weddings

Something about the energy of the day is amazing. After 10 years of weddings, I still get the same joy as day one.

I love
a good whiskey

I’m slightly addicted to traveling to snow in winter just to sip on a good old fashioned cocktail with friends by campfire.

I love
water

Water of all kinds. I love waterfalls, oceans, the great lakes, rivers, and natural springs.

When people look at my pictures I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice.

I believe in the quiet moments

There is nothing better than intimate moments with the ones you love.

I believe in holding hands

My grandparents were an inspiration married over 60 years and everywhere they went they held hands and shared smooches.

I believe in true friendships

This career has allowed me the privilege of meeting the greatest of couples from all over the world.  I feel truly blessed to call so many life long friends.
