I can't wait to meet you. From getting to know you, documenting important moments to the delivery of your images, I’m all in.
I focus on real emotion, true color and editing free from industry trends to ensure you will love your images decades from now.
A fun third wheel, I document what the day feels like and your true personalities. Couples say they love how calm I am under pressure, I instinctively know where to be at all times, how to capture humanity empathetically and that it's clear I love what I do.
l'm excited for you to relive all the hilarious, emotional and behind the scenes moments through your photos. I work primarily in the style of a photojournalist and also love creative portraiture. Your wedding day is about you and your marriage, not me. I try to be invisible and keep a low profile. If you prefer everything captured naturally as it happens - contact me.
I have a BFA and MFA in fine art photography and started my career in 2011 in Chicago. I relocated back to my home in East Tennessee in 2014 and have photographed 225+ weddings and counting. I got married in 2019 and live with Angie and our Aussie dog Jessie in a cabin in a remote part of the Smoky Mountains. I consider it an honor to document your life and would love to use my experience to create artistic and joyful work with you.
I am honored to be one of 250 photographers in the world to be named a 2019 nominee for Rangefinder's 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography, a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and their Artistic Guild, a Green Wedding Shoes preferred artist, a Catalyst Wedding Co. and H&H Weddings LGBTQ+ wedding pro and more.
Contact me for sessions in East Tennessee or here, there and everywhere. I travel frequently for weddings and have worked in Vancouver, Scotland, the Pacific Northwest, Mexico, California, New Orleans, Chicago, Colorado, Alabama, Michigan, Virginia, Washington D.C., the Gulf Coast of Florida, Nashville, North Carolina, Memphis, Chattanooga, Milwaukee and more and am ready to go!
I am an authorized photographer permitted to shoot within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I love photographing weddings, engagements, elopements, outdoor adventurous sessions, family sessions, Senior sessions and more. I also offer fun on location breakup sessions with hair and makeup if you need a confidence boost and some new Tinder photos. Ask me about other services you're interested in. Say hello anytime, I’d love to hear from you!
THANKS FOR THE LOVE!
