- cool and kind words someone once wrote about me


I don't pride myself on being the best writer. Especially when it comes to writing about myself. However. I am a great photographer, in a sea of great photographers, doing what I feel I am meant to do. Which is to create memories for you through photographs.

The best moments captured are those which happen organically, and are not attempted to make perfect. I aim to document your day exactly as it is. All the perfections and imperfections that occur during that very important day for you to cherish for the rest of your lives. I believe in harnessing natural light, finding the right composition and background to document your wedding day. Allow me to tell your story through images you and your family and friends will remember for a lifetime."

On weekdays you can find me either at home or out and about with my daughter. In the evenings I am either home with my family cooking dinner together, playing and reading or out meeting couples like you! Weekends are completely different. I like to stay busy between working at my studio space and spending quality time with friends and family. I also collaborate often with other artists in the city, producing content for a new endeavor of mine: Maidens Magazine. I love beer. I lived in Germany for a year and a half before deciding to "become a real wedding photographer" and I grew to worship the stuff. Especially a good Hefeweißen. A few other things I love: cold press, pickles, plants, printed 35mm images, fancy cheeses, Scandinavia, rollercoasters, music, my family of three and traveling outside the US.
