Eventually I went to school and earned a BFA in photography and began to teach photography at the local university and community college. In 2006 I decided to formally start a photography business. In 2008 my wife Tara began photographing with me and it's been an amazing journey together as a husband-wife team. We love what we do and feel blessed to be able to tell the stories of people's lives with our cameras.
At every wedding I photograph, I challenge myself to create the best images I can for my clients. I would love to hear more about you and your wedding plans!

Initially, I was somewhat intimidated at the prospect of shooting weddings professionally, as a business.
Fortunately, that changed after my first summer as a wedding photographer in South Lake Tahoe, California and I never looked back. The feedback I received during weddings and upon delivery of the final product motivated me to continue my pursuit of wedding photography. Today, I am an experienced wedding photographer, having shot weddings in downtown Sacramento, the California foothills, Quincy, Truckee, Reno, and almost every venue in Lake Tahoe.
I am deeply passionate about photography and capturing the most meaningful moments of your wedding.
I specialize in a photojournalistic approach, documenting your day as it unfolds. As a seasoned photographer with a wide range of freelance experience, I know how to anticipate the unique, natural moments of a dynamic event. I spot the key moments, big and small, that you will want stunningly, permanently recorded.
Creativity, attention to detail, and dedication define the services provided. Whenever possible, I utilize both my artistic skill for shooting the natural environment and and my experience as a wedding and event photographer to produce timeless, compelling imagery that truly captures the moment and the place you have chosen to get married.
Formal or casual, you have a vision for your wedding and I would like to be there to tell your story with my camera ...
I'm loud. I laugh, a lot. My favorite word is "obstreperous." I keep a koozie in every bag. I am an adventurer and athlete, claiming the following to my sports resume: runner, swimmer, cyclist, snowboarder, and sometimes climber. I am a music lover, prolific reader of literature, and traveler. The only bottle of wine I don't like has the word Merlot on it. I think that guacamole is an all the time food and when I'm not doing athletics, you'll find me on the dance floor.
My photography style is rooted in photojournalism. Hiring me equals a beautiful day with your loved ones, wine, laughs, and photos of the candid moments to help you remember it forever. I love to have fun and I want to have fun with you.
On a personal note, my love for cameras started when I was a child. I constantly took my father's SLR film camera and shot for hours. Needless to say, the camera has since become my life. You won't find me without a camera.
My goal is always to give you unique images that push the art of photography, while not forgetting the tears, laughs, and quivering lips that make your special day uniquely you.
Based out of Oakland & the San Francisco Bay Area, originally located in the Hudson Valley and NYC. I studied commercial art, and then completed a BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts. I've been in fine art exhibitions, and have had my images published in various magazines and publications throughout the US.
I take a fine art approach to my work, so my image delivery is tactile, with prints that can be touched, turned, and cherished. I offer a full range of professional fine art print products. Because I believe your memories are print worthy.
My style is to capture what is happening, how you and your guests feel, without being intrusive or clichéd. The images I create for you will reflect my training in fine art while simultaneously bringing back memories for years to come.
My attitude is to be creative and easygoing while maintaining the highest standards of professionalism.
I also love adventure and to travel!
