“To be an artist, you must learn the laws of nature.” — Pierre-Auguste Renoir
Artists often use the word “balance” to describe the placement of : colors light and dark, objects large and small, in an image to proportion their work to the golden ratio.
The same can be said of a relationship. Nothing is more important — especially for the couple committed to creating a lifetime of moments and memories together — than achieving balance.
Without it, no relationship will last, or thrive.
I love to shoot weddings because when I capture the bride and groom’s first moments as a couple — that special coming together when two end and one begins — then I will have captured that moment of beauty and bliss.
I am able to capture that perfect balance for you. You’ll see it in the expressions of couples who knew I was photographing them, and you’ll also find it in the candid images of friends and family who didn’t know that my lens was focused on them.
I understand that your wedding album serves as your family’s first heirloom and is a story that can be told, time and again for many years after the first dance has been danced and the last of the bubbly has been poured.
By looking back at their photographs, I’ve found that many of my clients often remember the first steps they took down a long road that’s often dotted with obstacles, large and small, as they reflect on why they started the journey together in the first place. If I’ve done my job well the moments captured will remind them of lightest of days even during dark times.
Light and dark. Large and small. Balance.
That’s what makes a wedding shoot — and the married life that follows — nothing short of exceptional.

In the business sphere distinctive brand identity materials are essential, especially since the advent of social media and the Internet. Fifty years ago the average city-dweller was exposed to 500 messages per day; now it is nearing 5,000. The competition is fierce for instant recognition and call to action strategies. How a company establishes its brand and visual perception can be the difference between customer engagement and the loss of sale.
The art of advertising is a series of methodical product placements designed to persuade the viewer. The reality is, without quality imagery there is not trust. Without trust there is no engagement. It is that simple — particularly if you’re marketing a high dollar product or lifestyle.
With thousands of messages bombarding viewer’s daily, effective advertisements must be the culmination of imagery that sparks imagination, communicates trust, quality, and core values to a specific audience.
For over a decade, with expert foresight, our team has helped numerous small businesses as they’ve expanded into multi-million dollar organizations and big businesses re-invented themselves generating over a billion dollars in revenue worldwide.

Unlike shooting weddings or family portraits, event photography is less about chronicling a moment and more about what comes after — the marketing mileage that the individual, artist or brand can get out of the event, long after it’s over.
I understand the importance of doing both, my clients have been able to use the images captured at their events in a number of ways, including as art for album covers, collateral for print and web promotions, imagery for media placement, and much more.
My photographs are designed to be multi-use. I shoot with an understanding of how your images will be used for future marketing materials, I ensure that my clients are able to maintain control of their image and get the most value for their investment.
That’s one reason why artists — like Eric Church, The Nervo Twins, and Swedish House Mafia; promoters for the Ultra Music Festival, The Groove Cruise, and We-Fest; top Ultimate Fighting Champions like Jake Ellenberger and Ryan Bader; and best-selling authors like Celebrity CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett — have benefited from my unique ability to create perception, to capture moments, and make memories that stand the test of time.
When it comes to my client’s valuable resources — like time, money, and their image — the right photographer knows that it’s all about maximum exposure.
