And thanks for stopping by to check me out. If you’re in the market for a photographer, I’m sure you’ve discovered the options are abundant to the point of being overwhelming. While many decide solely on the images, the reality is that those beautiful photos are the result of two more important, yet very familiar factors: chemistry and trust. So to help give you a sense of who I am and how we’d get along, here’s a bit more about me.
First, I married young but I married up. My wife and I have been on an 11+ year journey together and it’s this experience that has made the biggest impact on me as a person and an artist. Together, we created a daughter who is the center of our universe. Her imagination and sense of humor keeps me young at heart though she’s who I blame for my gray hairs and smile wrinkles. As a family, our lives revolve around good food, good friends, and a love of exploring this fascinating planet together. Seattle is where we call home and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
I began documenting weddings in 2010 and have been shooting full-time ever since. When I started, I thought I’d be lucky if anyone were to hire me. Little did I know that this job would take me to places well beyond my city limits and would connect me with people who started as clients and quickly became good friends. It’s been a crazy ride with a steep learning curve but I couldn’t be more grateful to do this for a living and I hope that shows through my images.
