Welcome to my blog!

Here you’ll find some of my most recent work including weddings, engagements, family & baby portraits, maternity portraits, or anything else I happen to point my camera at. At weddings you’ll hear me use the words “awesome” and “rad” about 10,000 times. One of my favorite things in this world is meeting new couples in love and then making beautiful photos of them. Let’s meet, enjoy a beer (or wine if we’re feeling classy) and talk about how we can make that happen!

I just want to say all my clients and couples are truly amazing.  Erika and I have been blessed with so many kind words and cute gifts from so many people.  I could not be any more thankful!!

**** Update ****       I’ve had numerous expecting mothers contact me about Erika’s dress so I wanted to add some info about it.  It was made by Woodleigh Clothing and was their Veve Maxi dress.  I’ve tried looking for it online and as far as I can tell it is no longer available anywhere.  :(

I’ve been looking forward to this shoot for about 7 1/2 months now.  Every day I consider myself so incredibly lucky that she is my wife and the mother of our soon to-be-born little girl London.

Special thank you to Janelle at Lavenders Flowers for the amazing floral crown and garland!!  They looked better than we could have hoped!  I can’t wait for the next wedding where I get to photograph more of your work!!

Erika also got her makeup done and pampered by Brie at Brie Does Makeup.

Also a huge thank you to my new friends and fellow photographers who came to the shoot as well and were nice enough to snap some pictures of me with Erika.  The photos I’ve seen so far look so great and we’ll cherish them forever!  Thank you!!

And now here’s my love…
