It's all about love and adventure....

A good photograph is well composed. A great photograph tells a story while offering compelling composition. What separates the two is the ability of the photographer to not only take a shot, but also to make clients feel at ease in front of the camera, allowing pretense to fade and inner beauty to shine. Anyone can take a picture, but a true photographer captures the spirit.

As a photojournalist, from back in the day, I pride myself on telling stories with my camera, making my clients comfortable before the shutter ever goes off. My mission is be an attentive observer, recording events as they unfold from unique perspectives. Simply taking a snapshot requires little time, but to capture the essence of a moment demands patience, skills, experience and the willingness to think outside the box so each client’s pictures are truly unique works of art.

Whether you are planning a small, intimate affair or the event of the decade, we will use our years of experience and creative energy to create natural, authentic and beautiful images and albums that will resonate for generations.
