Photography, where do I start. I was that kid who always had a disposable camera on hand. Years passed and I got busy with school and life, then being an adult. Somewhere along the way digital cameras became awesome. I was fortunate enough to meet a guy who had been a wedding photographer for over 20 years. He took me under his wing and taught me the basics of photography. After spending some time gleaning all the information I possibly could from him I branched out on my own. Shortly there after I met an amazing fashion photographer from LA. He and I became quick friends and with his help my style and skills really emerged.
Then two very close friends of mine got engaged. They reached out to me and asked if I would photograph their Annapolis engagement photos downtown. Of course I agreed. About half way through the shoot I realized that I had a HUGE smile on my face. I felt exhilarated, hell this was awesome! It was at that moment that I realized that this was what I needed to do with my life. I began working with so many amazing couples. Capturing all of those special moments gave me such a feeling of fulfillment. Whether its wedding photography, family photography, or portraits, I just love doing it.
I shoot what I call "Love" photography. If it involves love, I want to photograph it! I take a very laid back approach to how I photograph weddings and couples in general. It's my goal to make you feel as comfortable as possible; like 3 friends hanging out and there just so happens to be a camera there. When I photograph weddings, I do everything I can do to become part of the group, I even promise to make you laugh a few times! I've found that actually interacting with the wedding party, the guests, even the make up artist on a personal level helps to achieve truly genuine photos. Plus, everyone has an interesting story to tell and I love hearing them. I'm one of those people who can talk to anyone. I love immersing myself in the wedding day, this often ends up with me dancing at the reception with everyone else. And with my moves? Like I said, I promise to make you laugh. By the end of your wedding we will be like old friends. Don't we all need one more friend.
