I operate as a photographer that prides my work on the contrast works from all walks of culture, background, and life.

Event Photography

“It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter.” -Alfred Eisenstaedt


Studio Portraiture

“A portrait is not made in the camera but on either side of it.” — Edward Steichen


Creative Portraiture

“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” — Paul Caponigro


Wedding Photography

“To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition in a fraction of a second of the significance of an event.” -Henri Cartier-Bresson

Memories & Moments Are Everywhere

Most people react in three ways when confronted with a situation- dependent on it's type: Forget it a few seconds later, Remember it for a few days and then have it fade to their subconscious memory, or Remember it forever as if to be able to relive it over and over. My goal is to make every moment live forever, as if stamped in time.


In case you haven’t noticed yet, I lean towards black and white and play with color occasionally. To me, black and white affords us the ability to view images both with a depth & originality. It allows us to see a new perspective on what was already experienced with the eyes.
