I am a North East Ohio native, and divide my time between Akron, Columbus, and Cleveland, as well as traveling the world as much as possible. I have been photographing weddings since 2010 using a photo journalistic approach—meaning, as much as possible I try to capture the day as it happens, not forcing moments and blending into the background so as not to detract from your guests' experiences.

All of my work carries the same characteristics: attention to detail, authenticity, thoughtful composition, creativity and my own personal touch. Everything I do whether it's for a couple, a family, or a business, is designed to share a story in a way that is accessible and real.

The couples who I work best with are often not comfortable in front of the camera, so no worries if that's a concern—my job is to help set you at ease, direct you where necessary, and get those in between moments that tend to be the best. I'm very comfortable herding unruly groups and keeping family in line. Basically, I try to ensure that I'm doing everything I can to ensure the day goes smoothly for you, and that photos are one thing you aren't stressing about.

Fun tid bits about me: I own a 19 year old curmudgeonly chinchilla named Claude, a black luxurious cat named Bellatrix, and an electric scooter. In my leisure time I hike, eat, enjoy craft cocktails, or most likely—lay around my apartment doing a combination of everything besides hiking.

Side note: I am also a graphic designer, and can design invitations / menus / programs / etc.!
