Choosing a Wedding Photographer is usually the second step for any couple when planning a wedding. And having a photographer that will be there with you every step of the way is important. I not only strive to create the most beautiful photos for you but also to provide the best client service. From doing walk throughs of the venue to joining you for rehearsals, and of course being there for your wedding day and beyond. I work with all couples of all backgrounds, ethnicities, and orientations, so you don't have to worry about asking if I will. I am a firm believer of love is love and that it comes in all types. My number one concern is not only capturing those memories on your big day, but also helping make them. 

As your Wedding Photographer I am also very passionate about the quality of images. I use Canon cameras and lenses as I feel they best suit the colors and style my clients want to see themselves in. I am a member of Canon Professional Services to make sure my equipment doesn't fail and that my gear is in working order for your wedding day. I am also a member of Professional Photographers of America, which helps with ongoing education and services to make sure I am the best photographer I can be. You can never be a master of anything only a student of life, and I strive every day and every wedding to make it the best I have ever photographed. I constantly challenge myself to be even better every time I pick up a camera. 

Being a Wedding Photographer is not only a career for me, but a passion. I get to be with people on the happiest day of their lives and capture what they have worked so much towards. Weddings are big things to plan, and the results are amazing and should be remembered forever. I love helping my couples plan and get ready for their wedding. Because the easier it is on you the easier my job is for me. That is why I strive so much for client service and work every day to be one the best in the industry!
