A deep appreciation for the arts coupled with an insatiable love for travel inspires my passion for destination weddings. I am constantly inspired by the world around us...nature, architecture, art and cultural practices. I find these elements of travel subtly influence my work in lovely ways.
So whether you are planning an intimate elopement or an extravagant affair, close to home or abroad, I look forward to joining you in creating beauty on your momentous day.
Weddings are relational events; therefore, I place the utmost importance on illustrating interaction, moments of indescribable joy and the quiet, gentle moments in between.
Because every celebration is unique, your wedding will be intentionally documented with an eye toward capturing meaningful details, as well as the overall story of the day. I employ a fine art approach in my work which lends itself to the design of artisan heirlooms for you to cherish and reminisce upon.
“I HAVE NEVER VIEWED THE WORLD, NOR MY PLACE IN IT, MORE CLEARLY THAN WHEN I AM LOOKING THROUGH THE LENS OF MY CAMERA.”
I believe the art of photography is one of the most profound and meaningful ways to capture human connection. It is a medium which visually documents the most important moments of our lives...the ones we never want to forget...the ones we want to relive over and over again.
I have chosen photography as my life's work because our time on this earth is short and I believe we should do what feeds our souls. For me, that is telling the stories of couples deeply in love.
Inspired by love of all kinds, I seek to create elegant, artful photographs that will beautifully narrate your wedding celebration.
I've always been drawn to the ocean. It's vastness humbles me and seems to put everything into perspective. It's rhythmic waves give me a sense of peace. Water somehow grounds me and makes me feel balanced. I shall never tire of photographing the sea.
I think moody skies are poignantly beautiful. I find them to be emotive, mysterious and perhaps a bit sensual. Rather than evoking a sense of melancholy, I tend to feel somewhat introspective and quite often experience an abundance of inspiration to create.
While I love still life and traditional portraiture, my heart goes pitter-patter for photographs that reflect movement. A sense of movement brings an image to life. It plays a vital role in documenting interaction - with others, the environment and with one's self.
A poem turns mere words into art. It has the ability to channel our deepest emotions: joy, hope, fear, pain and love. When at a loss for words, I turn to poetry for inspiration. Some of my favorites: Sanober Khan, Khalil Gibran, Roman Payne and E.E. Cummings.
My assessment of architecture is the older the better. When traveling, I can spend hours getting lost in the streets, photographing buildings and ruins. I am particularly fond of European architecture for its fine art detail, craftsmanship and use of natural materials.
I feel so privileged to have had my work featured in a number of national and international publications. I am grateful to my my wonderful couples and fellow creatives for the hard work involved in getting published. Below is a sampling of some of my recent features.
