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.

As a child, photography was never something I dreamed of doing as a career, I actually wanted to fly airplanes but soon found out that since I was color blind (Yes it’s true… I’m a color blind photographer) that would never happen for me professionally. Moving on from that dream I graduated from CSU Fresno with a degree in Civil Engineering which seemed far from “artistic”, but somewhere along the way I picked up my first camera. I was hooked.
There’s not a moment that goes by that makes me think I should be doing something else with my life. I love the personal connection to people this path has brought me and the endless memories that I’m able to provide through my work. This is me. This is what I do. I’m a wedding photographer. I’m proud of it, I cherish it, and I respect it. That’s a little about me… now tell me your story!
