I am an internationally award-winning ex-photojournalist with 32 years of experience and have spent my life documenting and telling stories through photography. To me, photography is thrilling, electric even. An image may be a millisecond of history, but with the right composition in the right moment, a photograph has the ability to capture a recollection clearly in your mind's eye, expanding to other memories and reliving the experience. The beauty of photography for me means artfully crafting and preserving the moments you want to remember forever, and helping you create the stories you want to share.
I am based in Grand Rapids, MI but also serve the greater Denver, CO Metro area. I am available for destination weddings and photo sessions all over the world! I am a proud LGBTQ+ Owned Business
