i am a breathing time machine.

Any photo of your wedding, engagement or growing family deserves to be so much more than a quietly posed portrait of carefully directed smiles. Each click of the camera should reflect your relationship in its truth, in its happiest corners of the planet and surrounded by the elements that make your story, well, yours. It’s this philosophy that allows me to take photos that not only convey your joy, but pieces that paint the whole picture of your personality and your past. Whether that means standing in the shallow waters of the lake you learned to swim in as a child or next to the frogger machine at the dive bar where you first fell in love, each photo contains elements of your layered history. I don’t do this simply because it’s what matters to you today, but because it will matter even more in your future days, when you’re remembering and sharing who you were and how you got there.

Significance lies in that which the casual observer cannot see. I take photos that are beautiful to everyone, but meaningful to you.
