Photography has been a lifelong source of friendships and adventure for me and I have been honing my craft since I was a kid. I booked my first wedding when I was still in college at the age of 21 and 500+ weddings later I still get excited about every shoot. They are all opportunities to make new friends, explore new locations and share my creativity. I'm proud to be a full-time, professional photographer in Nashville. In addition to wedding photography I take on commercial, fashion, editorial, and portrait work with local clients ranging from The Grand Ole Opry, The Nashville Symphony, The Frist Center for the Visual Arts and national clients such as Pierce Manufacturing, AEG Live Events, and Health Magazine. My photos have appeared in Town & Country, The New York Times, Bust Magazine, Southern Bride, Rangefinder and they can be found in the homes of many of Nashville's most interesting and talented people. Be sure to check out my commercial and portrait work because I believe being well rounded and experienced in different genres makes you a better wedding photographer.
I love what I do and believe it shows in my work. I could tell you about my proficiency with lighting and posing but none of that is as important as knowing when to step back and just capture magic that unfolds naturally.
Aside from photography, I enjoy taking my 11 year old daughter Sophia on bike rides and reading her another chapter of Harry Potter before her bed time, traveling with my wife Samantha, playing tennis with my dad, a glass of wine with my mom, and playing music with my brothers. I love any excuse to get together with friends around a camp fire, canoes, ski slopes, and craft beer. Even though I love writing music, recording, and making beats, I mostly listen to NPR, audiobooks, and comedy while I'm editing photos. This year I turned 40 and my mid-life crisis has included joining adult softball and soccer leagues and doing a daily cross-fit workout but no new sports car for me.
