My inspiration for photography is greatly influenced by literature, music, cinema and personal experiences. I try to approach my work as if it's a magical, timeless film, beautiful music composition, a memorable novel or a poem that one is constantly drawn to come back to and every time finds something new.
My lifelong involvement with fine art and documentary photography lets me intimately capture the emotions, grace and light in all of the priceless moments of a wedding day, as well as the fleeting moments between those moments.

"Your photojournalistic approach kept participants and guests alike in a perfect comfort zone. Upon viewing the final outcome, we were extremely pleased. From the natural lighting of the black & whites, to the perfect composition of the group shots, we had tremendous difficulty in narrowing down final prints for an album. Your professional approach, incredible talent, and understanding of the business of wedding photography are to be highly commended. We can't wait to use you again for future events that require having precious moments captured. Thanks so much again!!! ,"
