Visual art and the art of story telling have always been intertwined and i bring both of these disciplines to my work as a wedding photographer. I have a varied life as a visual artist, starting out in documentary film, then moving on to become an Art Director in NYC. A couple of years ago, I decided to change a few things and moved from NYC to Rhinebeck. With that, I decided to revisit my love of storytelling through images and started photographing weddings. After all, every wedding has a great story. The romance, the love, the joy, the tears. I love what I do and consider myself very lucky to be able to do what I do.
