There are moments when the human spirit blooms and the heart gallops about wild and free. As a documentary style wedding photographer, I position myself for the split second when the character of an individual reveals itself ~ the shutter snaps and a treasure is born. Whether inhibitions are peeled away in passion, fall away in silence, or fly away on the wings of love, it is my work to get behind the scenes and deliver wedding photographs that tell an insiders story. In fact the greatest honor is being allowed into the place where real life happens ~ to record a story for all time. 
Sliding into photography was like putting on my favorite pair of 501's from the 80's: familiar, comfortable and sexy. At the core of my work is an interest in human chemistry where desire burns, passions churn and humor knocks out inhibitions. Almost without exception my clients gift me with pure essence of character. My gift is to reflect and magnify that essence, capture and document it.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am based in Chico, California and will travel up to 100 miles with no extra charge. After that travel fees will apply.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have photographed about 20 weddings as the main photographer and many more as a second.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Candid, cinematic, raw. I love the unrefined and emotional moments captured in the sliver of last light
