I LOVE COLD PIZZA AND SAPPY ROMANCE MOVIES I CAN'T SPEAK ABOUT.
My blood is probably made up of 60% cold brew coffee, 30% zero calorie energy drinks and the rest who really knows.. I love to create, so much so that I have so many random hobbies that it doesn’t make sense anymore. From a young age I’ve moved all over the place. I was born in Virginia, lived in New York, Maine, Back to Virginia, Southern California, Colorado, Back to Southern California and now currently living in the awesomely weird Austin Texas. Side note I’m 97% sure my home in Maine as a child was haunted, but lets not get too spooky so soon.. As you can see though I really love to see new places but as of writing this I am truly in love with Austin and all the amazing people I’ve met here so far.
I could sit here and write about how all my life I’ve loved photography and that from the moment I could remember I always knew I would be a photographer.. However that just isn’t true. I started off life wanting to be a Baseball Player or Comic Book Artist (ok I know, typical boy stuff). I was really good at both and excelled until I tore my shoulder and the dream of baseball faded. I remember being in 3rd grade and I would literally draw pictures for the other kids and sell them for .25 cents and up-sell them with my “Autograph”. I never wanted to be someone who was famous as a child growing up, I just wanted people to love my work even if they didn’t know it came from me.
Fast forward to about 4 years ago (ok it took me a little long to find my true passion, but that’s ok..right?) I found photography. At the time I had barely any money, was injured from a car accident, homeless and knew no one in Austin. The only thing I knew was that i had $500 in my bank account and I was using that to buy my first camera. I didn’t care about food, or a place to live, all I cared about was creating and maybe I wanted to eat a little bit. In the beginning the one thing I knew at my core was that I wanted to capture stories that were shaped by light and natural reactions. I quickly fell in love with my clients reactions when they would look at the back of my camera screen and be in awe of themselves. Theres something profound about watching someone appreciate who they are with their own eyes through my vision.
For me your wedding day is not just a date on my calendar. You are not just a couple that are on my calendar. I want to get to know the both of you and really understand what your love is about and where it was born. I want you to know me so you can feel comfortable sharing your most vulnerable moments with me without feeling strange. I can not wait to share your amazing day with you and capture it in a way that you can look back at it years from now and feel the emotions of the moment. I want you to see the photo of that tear rolling down someones cheek and instantly remember what that moment brought to your soul.
