i take pictures and i tell stories. and i travel A LOT. life couldn’t be better and i can’t imagine doing anything else.
truth be told, i’m head over heels in love with the world and its people. documenting life is a privilege and an honor, and a challenge i am thrilled to take on.
i am driven by the desire to capture true personality, intense emotion, inspiring love, and the fleeting moments that make up our lives. my focus is wedding and lifestyle photography and my ideal subjects are people who are in love with life, with each other, and with the world around them.
i have had the privilege of traveling to many awe-inspiring countries on many different continents, and observing life as it unfolds in various cultures. i’ve called many places home, from the east coast of the united states to the west, from the bustling streets of london to the remote regions of the amazon, to my most recent residence on lamu island, kenya – and i’ve loved every moment of it.
my photography career began completely by accident – i was thrust into covering political news in washington, dc with little knowledge of cameras or politics in early 2006. to my surprise, my experiences as a journalist, a traveler, an artist and a bartender, proved to be an excellent background for the job. in addition to newspaper assignments, i photographed red carpet events, star-studded parties, and black tie affairs with socialites for local magazines. however, my passion for people’s lives led me away from capitol hill and posh neighborhoods and into the homes of everyday people.
when i’m not shooting pictures or writing stories, i find great satisfaction in volunteering with organizations that i believe in. educational initiatives and programs that inspire and motivate individuals are closest to my heart. i believe strongly in education, art, and communication: through these three efforts i am convinced we can change and shape our world for the better.
i believe that people in love are the most beautiful people i’ve ever seen.
i also believe in love at first sight, that candid photography is an art form, and that i can change the world.
