I began my journey towards becoming a photographer in 2008 while attending Southeastern Bible College and interning for a Christian Magazine. It was in working under one of the writers, who was also a commercial photographer, that I was first introduced to the art of studio lighting.
In 2009 I began 2nd shooting weddings with other professional photographers and during this time met my beautiful wife, Lori! We were married in 2010 and began working as a team capturing weddings. This allowed me to combine the knowledge of corporate photography and wedding photography to develop the style that I have today.
Lori and I have two great kids, Andrew and Emori, and we love to be able to spend as much time with them as possible. There is never a dull moment as we are always looking for new adventures together as a family and as a two-person photography team.
Where We are Now:
I now take care of the wedding side of our business, and Lori specializes primarily in newborn and family photography. This is great news for all of our clients with families or those desiring to start or expand their family, as Lori is able to take care of all their newborn and family photography needs.
Like many people, photography started out as a hobby for me as a way of capturing moments long before I became a professional. I love photography, because it allows me to look back at the story of my own life and be reminded of all the wonderful blessings I have and have experienced.
I am able to take my love of capturing moments and turn it into something beautiful and share it with others so that they are able to do the same. I understand how powerful an image can be for other all types of story-telling, and I found that photographing in corporate and commercial photography has made me stretch myself as a photographer. It pushes me both in a creative way and in a technical way to continually become better, and the most rewarding moment is being able to help others by capturing whatever story they are conveying to the world.
My Goal in Life:
My goal in life is to be the best servant leader I can be by implementing Christ in all things I do. As a husband and father I focus on my family first, as I believe a strong family is extremely important. I do this by focusing on the Word of God and placing God before all other things and then by striving to love my wife as Christ loves the church (Eph 5:22-33).
My wife and I go through this life together encouraging one another and striving to be the best parents and business leaders that we can be, so we are able be a positive example to our children and are able to serve all our clients to the best of our abilities that we have been blessed with.
