I first picked up a camera at 15 years old on a cloudy day with my uncle. We were photographing osprey, and as I took a turn behind the lens one flew by with a fish in its talons. My uncle quickly pushed me into the dirt, grabbed the camera, and snagged the images. This dance repeated three more times before I finally said, “Dang it! I'm gonna nail that shot!”...
I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Biomedical Engineering degree and freaking loved it! My engineering background isn't made of lots of sexy skills: organization, teamwork, problem solving, handling numbers, and maintaining deadlines. Surprisingly, I use each to create a super smooth operation.
I’m all about the process to get that final image, which is a lot like making cookie dough. We can’t make sweet, delicious yummy stuff (AKA awesome images) without putting together all the ingredients in the right proportions and order. When fully baked, my photographic recipes are clean, crisp, colorful and implement dramatic lighting to tell a story. If baking isn’t your thing, just think football game plans - like knowing that Marshawn Lynch should have gotten the ball at the 1 yard line.
If my brand of goofy sounds like your cup of tea, then give me shout! I'd love to hear your story and hopefully get the opportunity to work with you.

I treat every session like it’s my top priority. I only take a handful of clients a year because I want to ensure that you get the utmost attention. We’ll communicate often and early to check every box on the list; keeping your session hassle free and easy. I work one-on-one with you on your timeline, making suggestions that ensure you get the pictures you want and deserve.
When you’ve been shooting for over 10 years, you pick up a couple of things; like the best clothes for portrait sessions, poses that flatter, how to conduct amazing sparkler exits, where your maid of honor or best man should stand for their speeches, that ladies should bring a spare set of flats to their portrait sessions, and how to shoot in tough locations. I’ll help you plan all of it.
Okay, I was hoping for a bit more applause for that one. But on a more serious note, I bring my A-game to your session. You’ll get a photographer that is professional, punctual, fun, dedicated, and a bit goofy. I want to create your amazing images and I want you to enjoy the guy behind the lens too; creating a singular experience that you’ll love.
Finding the right photographer is like finding the perfect shoe. I don't fit everyone, but I could be perfect for you. I guarantee that I will rock your socks off if I am.
Let's find out if we can run together.
