Today’s world is engulfed by technology. Having the most likes or uploading the most pictures to social media. But what about when you take time to disconnect? When you simply unplug, how do you look back at your wedding? Isn’t that the ultimate desire of any couple truly in love?

Not your average photographer or photography experience.
Some things can't be described by words in a book or by a photo. Some times it can only be felt through our experiences that we have thrust upon us, or we witness first hand. Those experiences are the exact moments that make us who we are today.
From the moment I graduated high school, I had no idea what I wanted nor did I know which direction I was headed.
Life had plans for me no matter which direction I went. I have pushed through emotional lows and coasting on the blissful highs. I was determined to make my life more than what it might have been.

I stayed with my high school sweetheart and have been for over 14 years. We now have one son, and a daughter on the way. Before that we experienced our own adventure of planning a wedding. An experience I might wish to do over, yet one that I am happy for because I had the man I married who was, and still is, my rock.
I am not like any other photographer because my own wedding. No other photographer can say that after they booked their professionals and venue, they were laid off for down sizing. Everything I planned was flipped upside down.

Yet because of the photographer that I had capturing my wedding, not a single photographic memory shows the challenges and stresses that led to one of the happiest days of my life.
That is what I give to everyone of my weddings.
No matter what steps up, or down, you took to get to your wedding day, you will never see that in the images and keepsakes that I deliver to you.

If you are serious about the quality of your wedding photographs, let me know! I am only accepting 30 weddings for 2021.
What makes me a different kind of wedding photographer? Let me share the intimate details of how losing my job in the middle of planning my wedding, defined me as a photographer so focused on not just stunning images, but the experience of a lifetime for you.
You know 30 weddings a year is not many. But, that is because I give more than digital downloads. I deliver an unforgettable experience. Customize your perfect wedding photography experience from one of my specially designed packages.
