Before proceeding, I want to give a quick 'Thank You' for your interest in my work and some insight into my philosophy as to how I approach wedding photography... Let's admit it, just knowing someone will be capturing every little detail of your day can feel a bit overwhelming and down right awkward. However, it doesn't have to be that way and it won't.
I photograph my couples as if to capture it through the eyes of your partner, dearest family members, and friends, to tell an honest story with my work, told with thoughtfulness and love for the persons I photograph. It is the intimate and vulnerable moments of ones true self that I pride myself in being able to capture.
Although based in Clovis/Fresno, CA my work has taken me on many adventures throughout California and across various states to capture the fleeting moments of the wedding day. Learn a little more about what makes me, 'Me', by clicking the link below.

"I have never been more excited about printing an image in my life. Thank you for that. Your photographs are a true piece of art."
"One of the most important aspects to our wedding was the memories that we were taking with us. After our wedding, looking at our photos I still cannot believe the quality and beauty of them. Even the simplest of settings became a masterpiece.
