More Than Pretty Pictures, I Capture Stories

I believe every couple's story is unique, a cloth woven with threads of love, laughter, and the unwavering support of family and friends.

My journey with photography began as a way to celebrate life's precious moments, and it blossomed into a calling fueled by faith and family. As a follower of Jesus Christ, I believe every love story carries a unique spark, a reflection of God's divine plan. And as a devoted family man, I understand the profound significance of weddings – the merging of two lives, the creation of new traditions, the joy of loved ones coming together.

The Experience

Unearthing the Gems of Your Story, One Frame at a Time. 

My approach is simple 

I blend seamlessly into your wedding day, being a careful observer capturing genuine emotions and authentic connections. I look for beauty in the quiet moments, the whispered promises, the tearful embraces and the joy and laughter. My lens carefully reveals not just the staged smiles, but the depth of love that binds you and your family and friends.

Light and Shadows

Capturing light and shadows is my chosen canvas. Its subtle textures and timeless elegance lend a touch of nostalgia to your memories, echoing the magic of falling in love and building a life together. In every photograph, I strive to capture not just the fleeting moments, but the enduring love story that unfolds on your wedding day. Ultimately, my passion is to create heirlooms for your heart. Like you, I believe your wedding day deserves to be remembered, cherished, and celebrated for years to come.

Let's Connect


Let's connect and turn your wedding vision into reality. Whether you prefer a casual ice cream meeting or a convenient phone call, I'm eager to hear your love story, shared passions, proposal details, and wedding aspirations. During this conversation, we'll also secure your wedding date and begin tailoring your photography experience.

Communication is key. You can expect prompt and comprehensive responses to your emails, texts, and phone calls. I prioritize open communication, ensuring your needs and photographic desires are understood every step of the way. Additionally, I collaborate closely with your wedding planner to craft a seamless timeline and maximize the use of natural light for stunning results.

Immerse yourselves in every precious moment. Breathe it all in, let the joy wash over you, dance until the stars come out. I'll be there, discreetly capturing the fleeting emotions and genuine connections that define your celebration. While you embark on your honeymoon, I'll weave your love story into timeless photographs, a legacy for your family to cherish for generations.

My dedication extends beyond the ceremony. I arrive early, with positive energy, ready to assist in any way needed. Within 48 hours, you'll receive a captivating sneak peek - a chance to relive the magic, share it with loved ones, and perhaps shed a happy tear or two.

It Was Always You..

Planning your wedding is an exciting whirlwind, and knowing the right questions to ask can make all the difference. So, grab a cup of your favorite beverage and let's dive into some of the most common inquiries I receive from couples like you!

1. What's your photography style?

I believe in capturing genuine moments and raw emotions that tell the true story of your love. My style is a blend of natural light, candid interactions, and subtle guidance to create timeless photographs that reflect your unique personalities and the joy of your celebration.

2. How do you approach the wedding day?

I arrive early, brimming with positive energy and ready to blend seamlessly into the background. I'm there to document your day authentically, not orchestrate it. Of course, I'm always happy to offer gentle direction and guidance when needed, but my focus is on capturing the natural flow of emotions and genuine connections that make your wedding special.

3. What packages do you offer?

My packages are designed to be flexible and cater to your specific needs. I offer coverage for different lengths of time, from elopements to full-day celebrations, and include options for engagement sessions, albums, and digital files. Don't hesitate to reach out for a customized quote based on your vision!

4. How do we reserve our date?

Once we've confirmed your interest and chosen a package, I'll send you a contract and invoice to secure your date. A retainer fee is required to hold your spot, and the remaining balance is typically due closer to the wedding date.

5. How long will it take to get our photos?

I understand your eagerness to relive your special day! I typically deliver a sneak peek within 24 hours, and you'll receive your fully edited gallery within 6-8 weeks. You'll have access to an online gallery for easy viewing, sharing, and downloading.

6. Do you travel for weddings?

Absolutely! I love capturing love stories in new and exciting places. Travel fees may apply depending on the location, but I'm always happy to discuss options and make your dream wedding photography a reality.

7. Can we see more of your work?

Head over to my portfolio page to browse through galleries of past weddings and get a feel for my style! You can also find testimonials from happy couples on my website and social media pages.

8. Do you have any tips for planning our wedding photography?

I recommend creating a shot list of important moments you want to capture, but don't overschedule your day. Trust your photographer to capture the magic as it unfolds naturally. Most importantly, relax, enjoy every moment, and let your love shine!

This is just a starting point, of course. Feel free to add or remove questions based on your specific services and target audience. Remember, the key is to be informative, approachable, and transparent, building trust with potential clients and setting the stage for a smooth and stress-free photography experience.
