I am a morning person with a firm belief that “The Wire” is the best TV Show ever made, “Apocalypse Now” the best movie ever made, and ribeye the best cut of beef ever discovered. I am also blessed to say that my passion in life is my career. I am a documentary photographer based in New York covering weddings in the tri-state area, nationwide, and around the world. I am honored to be a part of the Wedding Photojournalist Association as a Top 10 Contest Winner. I have had my work published in local and national newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal. This past May, some of my documentary work was featured in a gallery in New York City.

"We had to write you a brief letter to thank you for the absolutely amazing photography you’ve done for our wedding. When we were looking for a photographer, we were hoping to find someone that could capture our special day like a storybook. What we ended up finding was a photographer what captured not only the story of our day but the real emotions, the hearts and souls of all the people that made the story a reality. We’ve now looked through all the pictures at least 20 times, and are continuously astounded by your craft. What’s most amazing is how well you’ve captured what we teachers call “the J-factor,” or the joy. Every single picture could be used as evidence to support the claim that this was THE most fun, happy and love-filled wedding ever to take...more "
