I’m inspired by the challenge that comes with each new session: to be given a chance to spend time with people and photograph them. As a photojournalist, much of my work aims to be authentic and effortless. I’m a portrait photographer because I love photographing people.
I’ve been photographing professionally now for 4 years. I fell into wedding photography, after a few friends got married and were looking for a photographer. The rest is history.
I’m a classically trained darkroom photographer, who found mad respect for the craft churning my hours (and dollars) in the darkroom while in college. I love the film aesthetic and it continues with me today even though I shoot mostly digital now.
The clients I work with tend to give me 100% creative trust, and generally are looking for an overall more candid approach to their day, as opposed to posed work.
I live and work outside of Washington, DC with my fiancé (who is also my second shooter). Outside of photography, I am also a professional designer & developer, working with a wide range of clientele to design, develop, and ship their vision to the web. I’m into video games, building PCs, and Pokemon.
