I’m a Central Virginia based wedding photographer, (Richmond, Charlottesville, Petersburg, and Williamsburg areas) focusing on being the second photographer. I approach wedding photography from a storytelling standpoint – the love story. Photographing the moments of the wedding day, big and small that tell the beautiful love story of the bride and groom. The celebration of beginning an amazing life together, surrounded by the love and support of their family and friends.
As a second photographer, I understand how important the details behind the photograph are too. Staying on schedule, setting up lighting, organizing and carrying equipment. Being part of the team that captures the magic of the day so the bride and groom can fondly look back for years to come.
I became interested in photography when I met my wife who loves nature photography. Every time she went out with camera in hand, I found myself tagging along doing the same. When we were married, we were amazed at how our two photographers beautifully told our love story. From then on, I knew wedding photography held a special place in my heart. Being able to provide those keepsake memories for other bride and grooms? Well, nothing makes me happier!
Outside of photography, I enjoy working on set of TV shows and movies as a background artist. It wasn’t long before I realized I was more interested in what was going on behind the camera to create what was going on in front of it. I had the opportunity to be a grip/gaffer. The fast pace, teamwork, creativity, and attention to detail needed to create a moment in time has been and continues to be a priceless experience.
