• Photograph weddings as the lead photographer

Working with an assistant during the shooting we creatively capture their day from every angle. Then edit and color correct all the photos and collaborate with the clients to design their wedding album.

Working with mostly natural lighting, I capture the childrens' true character & personality. I like to shoot in a location that they are comfortable; their home or a nearby park are favorites.
