For the majority of the day I stay very hands off, focusing 100% on the story. You won’t find me asking your friends to stage or recreate moments, but you will find me ready to photograph those moments before they even happen. During portraits, it’s a little different. I give plenty of direction, working to bring creative ideas and techniques to make images that are as unique as the people in them. Though I do direct during portraits, my intentions are to capture those candid moments in between the poses to give you honest, natural photos.

Engagement sessions are not only for making photos to use in your save the date cards and signature books. They are also a great way for you to get a real life feel for my style and approach to photography. But most importantly it gives us an opportunity to get to know each other before your big day. Being comfortable with each other and having that mutual respect and trust will really help us later to create those intimate wedding moment shots I’m known for.



Your portrait session should be a reflection of your family. Before our session we will have a phone or in person consultation so we can discuss your expectations, ideas, and goals for our session. Preparation and communication are the keys to a successful portrait session, so make sure to share all your ideas and concerns with me during our consultation..

I love the wide variety of looks and stories that each unique high school senior wants to tell. Some girls are the fashionista type and really love that high fashion look, others are a bit more of a country girl and want to shoot in a rural field or barn setting and or course there are the athletes, dancers, and artists who want to focus on their hobby of choice. Regardless of what look your'e going for; this is your senior year, let’s create something together that will blow people away.

I absolutely love them! You are amazing! Thank you so much for everything!! I was going to text you last night just saying how much fun we had with you. But it was a little late so I will say it here how much we enjoy working with you. You are a very talented man and you couldn’t make us happier with your work. We can’t wait to share these with friends and family. I cried happy tears as I was looking through them. You have a intricate eye at capturing people’s happiest moments. We are so lucky to have found you. We love your heart and spirit and it will be an honor to have you a part of our special day :) Thank you again for everything!
