Great photography is the feeling of mist kissing your face on the bow of a boat, it is the sparkling eyes of the partner you love with every cell of of your being, it is the fresh wind at sunset. It is a form of mindfulness and a process of existing in each moment as fully as possible. Photography is a way of sharing the feelings and textures of life with others.
I photographed football games in the midwest, walked into wildfires in California, and witnessed everything in between as a staff photojournalist at newspapers around the States. I have photographed weddings across the country and abroad since 2006. My editorial work has been published in Men’s Vogue, Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, USA Today and the LA Times, to name a few. My wedding work has been featured in Rangefinder, Junebug, Moment Junkie, The Photo Brigade, Seattle Bride, Ever Ours, Budget Savvy Bride and Rustic Wedding Chic, and more.
Those lists are not that significant. What matters to me is authenticity. It matters if my photos capture the way you hold your partner’s hand or the unique way you smile at each other. Great photography takes a commitment from both of us to open ourselves to each other. It involves a willingness to step out of our bubbles of comfort and to connect. That is the first step in capturing real moments and great photos. Send me a note, I would love to hear about you and your plans.
I am based in Seattle and would love to talk with you face to face. My girlfriend Kathryn (also a photographer) and I love to travel and are documenting our journey, join us!
