Dan started his photography career at the age of eight, encouraged by his mother's instructions on the workings of the Kodak Brownie II camera. He spent the whole afternoon lying on the grass in the late California summer sun taking pictures of his GI Joe figurines in full battle regalia. Little did he know his love of GI Joe was to be replaced with a love of photography. His formative years are now more affectionately referred to as the Rangefinder, Polaroid and Instamatic years. He majored in journalism in college, beginning his SLR years. He has over 20 years experience in newspapers. He swore he would never shoot weddings but finally caved under the pressure of friends and has now shot more than 730 events in the past 20 years. He has won numerous local, national and international awards. While lying in the grass at a recent wedding capturing the life-changing event before his eyes, he reminisced about an earlier time when he naively discovered his own lifetime passion.

I fell in love with photography when I was in my late teens and living in Mexico City. I always saw photography as an art and as a tool for social change. This led me to spend a couple of decades working as a freelance photojournalist covering news and feature assignments for national and international publications. After my son was born, I chose to scale back on travel. I took time off to get an MFA and started teaching at the college level, and lecturing on writing and photography. I have exhibited nationally, published a couple of novels, and I’m currently learning to play the guitar—it’s not easy! I’ve been photographing weddings for over a decade. I shoot only about a dozen weddings each year, which helps me offer a more personal service. I’m always honored by how families welcome me into their lives. I feel a great sense of responsibility to remain unobtrusive while capturing the moments that will become lifelong memories. For me, photographing a wedding is about telling a story, not just of the day itself, but of two people—and two families—coming together. I’m based in Florida’s Gulf Coast and cover weddings from Miami to Tampa at no additional charge. I’m available for destinations weddings in Mexico, the Caribbean and beyond. I’m fluent in Spanish and French. [Tampa Wedding Photographer]
