I am a wedding photographer based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Most of my weddings are within North Carolina, from Asheville to Raleigh to Wilmington and many places in between and well beyond. I do travel throughout the year and love to see new places and meet new people through my work.
I would describe my work as fine art, quiet, and romantic. I am not afraid of shadows and enjoy playing with whatever natural light is in the room. I am not a stickler for perfectly sharp photographs all of the time. We move about and the moments we experience often seem to fly by, so I like to show motion in my work, whether that be as a couple dances or as a bride runs down a staircase.
In the end I want to create art for you. Beautiful prints that you will hang throughout your home or albums you will share with your family and which will be passed down for generations to come.
When not behind the camera, I am with my beautiful wife Rebecca, my two crazy boys Ben and Jack and our Golden Retriever Baloo. I love the mountains, I like to run, I live to eat and I enjoy a good bourbon when the mood strikes.
I have been described by my family and friends as honest, loyal, passionate, creative and hirsute (which explains the luscious and well groomed beard!). I wander through museums whenever I get the opportunity and enjoy reading (not the electronic versions, as I still love the feel of an actual book in my hand). My favorite movie is Christmas Vacation, my favorite book is A Walk In The Woods by Bill Bryson and the best meal I have ever enjoyed was at The Chef and The Farmer.
