I got into photography as a kid, after my dad picked up a Minolta 3000i. Maybe that’s a little too far back. I got into photography, professionally, around 2007.
I’ve wanted to be a photographer ever since I found out that it was an option. I love photos. I love making them, I love looking at them, but the very best part of my job is the people. I get to meet such awesome folks thanks to this camera, and portraits give me a chance to learn all about them, so that I can really capture who they are. As much as I love to shoot all the great details of a wedding, it’s people that I’m focused on. Your dad dancing to “Soulja Boy” at the reception. That teary eyed hug after your maid of honor’s toast. Your pre-ceremony bridal party shenanigans. That’s the stuff you want to remember. And when I do portraits for your family, I want to capture your family, with all their beautiful quirks.
I’m not into fussy. Not in my pricing, my process, or my policies (I am, however, into alliteration). I think that getting beautiful photos taken should be easy and fun for everyone. I’ll help you to get the kind of photos you want, while having as much fun as possible. When you look back on your photos, I want you to look back at real memories. More “look how happy we are” and less “this is how our photographer told us to stand.” I’m interested in stories, and I want to tell yours.
I live in Brownsville, PA. Have camera, will travel. I’m always looking for interesting ways to photograph people, and interesting people to photograph. If you have questions about getting me to wherever you are, there’s more information on the pricing page.
When I’m not taking photos, I’m into big headphones, East Bay punk rock, and wearing too much eyeliner. When I have a spare minute, I’m watching hockey, playing the fiddle for the Washington Symphony Orchestra, or outside with our local Hike it Baby group. I’ve been married since 2007, to a dude I met in high school. He’s the Calvin to my Hobbes. I also live with my tiny son (Johnny) and two dogs (Pete and Molly).
It’s hard to choose the right photographer when you’re looking at a sea of strangers. I use the blog, and a few social media sites (see top), as a way for you to get to know me better.
