Photography is personal. Why hire anyone you don't trust?
What You Can Expect
Personable, Dedicated Communication: 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.
All the Tips and Tricks: When you’ve been shooting for over 10 years, you pick up a couple of things; like the best clothes for engagement 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 predict and initiate the little moments that create those precious candid images. I’ll help you plan all of it.
Online Galleries: Your high-resolution, unwatermarked images are delivered in an online gallery within 3 weeks. Your gallery will have options for downloading your images and purchasing prints of all shapes and sizes. I even include a print release so you can take your files anywhere! These are your images, enjoy them!
Me!: 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.
Yankee in the South. Always creating. Lost in wanderlust. Cookie dough obsessed.
I first picked up a camera on a cloudy day at 15 years old 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've been taking pictures ever since.
I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Biomedical Engineering degree and freaking loved it! But I found something missing from my life. I simply loved photography so much that I decided that the ability to pursue this wonderful and crazy passion was too much to ignore, so here I am.
I love creating dynamic, colorful images that make people stop and say, "Damn." My favorite part of any session is taking a few extra minutes to create portraits that amaze with dramatic lighting and true emotion. I strive to tell stories that capture candid moments and highlight the places where they happen.
If this sounds like what you’re looking for, then lets have a chat! I hope to have the honor of working with you and can’t wait to hear your story!

Let's grab a cup of coffee at a location of your choice - we'll talk about your vision & your expectations, walk through the process, and develop an experience tailored just for you and your fiancé. We'll meet a few more times before the big day to discuss timelines, shot lists, and other details to ensure that your delivered images are the ones you've dreamed of. After the big day, I'll edit the images and invite you over for an in person reveal of your amazing photos.

My favorite portrait sessions are ones that tell stories: a graduating senior in their letterman jacket on the field, a dramatically lit actor for a theatrical advertisement, a stylized session to advertise a brand, or a family with their giggling kiddos saying "Happy Holidays!" from their backyard - I love it all.
I treat my portrait sessions like I do weddings, with the utmost attention and detail to create an experience tailored just for you. We'll develop a shot list, figure out logistics, and collaborate the entire way to create your ideal images. After the session, I'll edit the images and invite you over for an in person reveal of your gorgeous photos.
