And I love my job.
Bluntly, it's pretty awesome to be able to join in on such a fun and memorable day of someone's life. I am good at what I do because of that first statement above, I really love it... likely also because I've photographed upwards of 350 weddings now. I love the technical side of photography, I love the art, I love getting to know fascinating people of all walks of life, I love a good party, and I love love (as cheesey as that sounds!).
More seriously, I have been continuously learning how to better my craft as a photographer since I was in high school in Houston, TX. I was educated at Texas State University and after recieving a bachelor's degree in fine arts, I became a full time wedding photographer. I travel often for destination weddings as well as my own personal adventures; you could say that I have been bitten by the travel bug. Being able to combine my two greatest passions is something that I will never take for granted.
My family & friends are more precious to me than I could ever express with words so it is a priority to me that I capture the connections between your loved ones on the wedding day. I take a lot of photographs, never knowing exactly which moment will be your fondest to look back on in 20 years but simply assuring that I capture all of them. I approach a wedding day assuming that every person, place, tradition, & scene is important. I want every single aspect of the day to be photographed with the dedication and experience that has taken me 10 years to acheive. I am particularly known for my ability to capture decisive moments in creative lighting with scenic detail. I am constantly striving to improve as I treat every wedding as a unique and special story to be told.
