Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding! I appreciate you taking the time to peruse my website. I want you to be happy with your images as well as have a meaningful, enjoyable photo experience on your wedding day. You will have no problem navigating your way through your photographic experience with my help. I will help you narrow down what is you want in your wedding photography so that you are pleased with the outcome and the experience. I will help you with a timeline and shot list that creates a smooth running wedding day.
I am thrilled to have a job that I love and this translates to a good relationship between you two, as a couple, and me, which is of the utmost importance. I will meet with you before hand and discuss all that we need to do to have beautiful, romantic images that you will cherish.
What I love about photography is capturing a fleeting expression or moment in time that people will love. I want to make you feel at ease in front of the camera and just forget that I am there. I am professional, reliable and fun to work with. The combination of my experience in all facets of photography makes my work unique. My hybrid style is a combination of classic posed photography and photojournalism which captures moments and emotions.
I have chosen photography as my career for love of the art alone. I continue to study photography at George Mason University School of Art and Visual Technology to expand my knowledge and stay current. I have an Associates Degree in Photography from Northern Virginia Community College. I have studied under Pete Souza, Photographer of President Ronald Regan and President Barack Obama. I have a B.A. and J.D. from West Virginia University and am a member of the Virginia State Bar Association, yet dedicate 100 percent of my time to photography.
I volunteer my talents for the Heart Gallery doing adoption photography for children and Operation Love Reunited for our United States military troops. My photojournalistic works have been published in the Community Times, The Connection, and The Potomac News newspapers in Virginia.
