About

Thanks for stopping by! I've been a professional photographer for 14 years and it's been an exciting ride. I'm fortunate to work with amazing couples, be part of an important moment in their lives, and create something that will be appreciated far into the future. I believe the best photos are timeless rather than trendy, and thinking about what will still look good in 50 years has a constant influence on my natural and unobtrusive style of photography. In addition to weddings I shoot portraits, fashion and architecture for editorial and commercial clients. I've also had the honor of photographing President Barack Obama eight times during his time in office, and President Bill Clinton once in his post-presidency. And yes, it was super cool.

Most importantly I'm a husband to an amazing woman and a father to two equally amazing kids. You'll often find me cooking something crazy in the kitchen, chasing kids around the house or walking my dog in the woods.
