...and I am a wedding photojournalist. This means that I specialize in candid (also called documentary style or simply unposed) photography. I enrolled in college as a young artist where I learned how to create and critique art, which would later become the foundation for my photography career. After graduating in 2008, I took an internship as a photojournalist at The Valley News Dispatch--now known as Trib Total Media--where I fell in love with visual storytelling and the year I shot my first wedding. I spent 8 years working for the newspapers—during the week I was shooting assignments full-time and shooting weddings on my weekends. In 2015, I decided to focus 100% of my energy on weddings. I took what I loved most about photojournalism and carried it to my wedding photography. My appreciation for art taught me composition and awareness to light, and the skills I developed as a photojournalist trained me to document candid moments with ease. I combine these elements in fun ways to help you relax in front of the camera and capture your personality, not poses. In addition to beautiful candid (and a few posed) portraits of yourselves, I also look for the little moments to tell the story of your day. Whether that is a photo of your flower girls giggling in the back of the church, detail shots of macaroni art hanging on your fridge from your in-home lifestyle family session, or a candid portrait of yourself with a huge laugh with nose wrinkles from your high school senior session. I reside in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania in Butler County but I am willing to travel to document your milestone event, whatever or wherever it may be. Be sure to check out my blog (linked here) to view my most recent work. Feel free to add me on social media as well! I love getting to know my clients on a personal level. PS: I do not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, age, national origin, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.

From the time I could walk, I was taking photos with my mom. She was an amazing artist and let me take over a tiny film camera she had. Though I’m not sure how good the photographs were, I will never forget the feeling of that round, silver shutter button, something that to this day makes me feel both calm and exhilarated. I am a "fine art wedding photojournalist" — a mouthful, I know — which really just means that I spend the day turning your wedding into a beautiful pictorial documentation that allows you to relive the day over and over again and give friends and family who weren't able to attend a chance to be there. I also take moments throughout the day to create works of fine art, or photos that would be interesting even to those who don't know you, as well as taking a bit more than a moment to create beautiful, artistic portraits that will stand out in the crowd.

I’m a photographer, dreamer, classically trained pianist, and natural born creative. I’m a recycler and do my best to live within my means. I’m a college graduate who paid way too much for a degree. Dated for 6 months, engaged for 6 more and been married for over 15 years to one of the most compassionate women you’ll ever meet. I’m a father of two incredibly inventive kids who can build you a home out of cardboard or at the very least a kick-ass Ironman suit. I get genuinely excited about all the possibilities that come from collaborating with my clients. I have a relaxed and easy demeanor and have often been described as an, “Island of calm in sea of chaos.” I love new technologies, slightly obsessed with spicy foods, and thrive on creativity. More importantly, my most treasured possession is my family. [Columbus Wedding Photographer]
