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 recently put together a simple little bridal session and got together with some photographer friends to just have some fun.

I’ve been wanting to experiment with shooting through glass to add some beautiful reflections to the images.  I recently had a chance to play with it a little bit and these are the results…
