Rain or shine, day or night; my mission is to provide striking images with vibrant color and gorgeous lighting. My style is the culmination of many influences from great movies to fashion photography but I’m most inspired by people. My favorite photos are the ones that breath with life and show the joy and happiness or bittersweet emotion. Weddings are perfect for this. I get to photograph people laughing, people crying, portraits of whomever catches my eye, action shots on the dance floor, children playing, and old friends reuniting. There are times when I’m a fly on the wall and others when I'm the center of attention organizing groups and doing my best to make people laugh. Its the perfect job for anyone who loves photographing people.
After all of my years shooting commercial, editorial and portrait work I've found the weddings I've photographed are often the most challenging but also the most rewarding. Shooting in the same studio every day would be a bore. With weddings the scenery changes and the challenges keep it interesting. Helping my clients relax or overcoming tough lighting situations has gotten easier for me through experience. However capturing fleeting moments of laughter and emotion is the challenge that keeps me on my toes. Knowing how much my work means to my clients, hearing their reactions, and knowing that I'm leaving a legacy of family heirlooms all over Nashville is why I find so much meaning in my work and it's why I remain passionate about my job after so many years. My motivation is pure. I want my clients to be ecstatic about their photos.
