Any given Saturday, I wake up feeling excited. I love what I do. I photograph people on the happiest day of their lives. I am a wedding photographer.
I graduated from the University of Missouri photojournalism program with my mind firmly set on sports action and feature coverage. I was determined to head in this direction with my career.
However, sometime late in my college career, I found myself drawn to the challenge, drama, (often) chaotic, and emotional high of photojournalistic wedding day coverage. As many of us in the creative or journalism fields have found recently, in the age of 24 hour news coverage, Twitter and Instagram feeds, moments are often consumed instantly and then discarded. Through wedding photography, I find great satisfaction in spending my weekends producing images with a long shelf life, that will be treasured by generations of family and friends. These images only get better with age.
My goal is to capture unscripted, candid images that show your wedding day’s genuine emotion and feel. I want to record your love; spontaneous, natural and relaxed. I disappear into the background of your day; I will be there when you need me, but not intruding when you don’t.
I keep traditional wedding day photography in mind, but I take risks when the opportunity arises. My aesthetic tastes tend to lean strongly toward symmetry and the rule of thirds, fun and colorful toning, bright, clear and sharp images.
I will crawl on the ground for you, I will run and leap for you, I will jump in the ocean with you.
I live and work in uptown Dallas, so you will often find me at Mi Cocina in my free time. Come have a Mambo Taxi and let’s talk about your big day.
