About

“We’re all frightened by time and the way it moves on, the way things disappear. But we’re photographers. We’re preservationists by nature. We take pictures to stop time, commit moments to eternity - human nature made tangible.”
— Kodachrome, 2018

About me…

To be honest, I never saw myself here. I graduated from photojournalism school over 15 years ago — typically idealistic, ready to take on the world, scared witless. Photographing weddings wasn’t even a consideration. My first one was for a friend. I turned it down at first but relented after a while. Not knowing anything about weddings, I decided to photograph it the way I would a news photo essay. It was a great day. Not just the pictures that we made but The Day. Happy people. Happy family. Happy couple. Love was everywhere. The more weddings I do, the more I feel like I’m making a difference in the lives of each couple. I imagine every couple I photograph looking back on their wedding or engagement images years later and reliving the day and all its emotions. So the responsibility of documenting one of the most important days in the life of a new couple is not one I take lightly. That is why I put so much of myself into each wedding I do. Because I know it’s going to last. Long after the cake is eaten, the decorations are pulled down, the floor is swept and the lights are turned off, a couple's love remains, endures and evolves. So on your wedding day, go get lost in love and I will find you there...
