First off, thank you for checking out my site. I believe the universe has a unique & purposeful way of connecting people together. So no matter how you landed here, I’m appreciative of the opportunity to connect.
Now for a little about me. I was born and raised in Nashville, TN. And before you ask, No. I do not actually like country music. Surprising right? But how many people who have dreads like country music anyways? However when it comes to what inspires & influences my work, music might be the at the top of the list and I do listen to a variety(just not country). My wife and I love going to shows and concerts, and attend Bonnaroo annually back in our home state. (if you don’t know what Bonnaroo is, Google it. Then send me a message when you want to camp with us at ‘Roo the next year)
My wife Amy is from Nashville as well. We met in high school :) and got married back in 2013.
We decided after a few years of being married(and still living in Nashville…) that it was time for a change of scenery-for no other reason than to do something new. So despite both our families still living in Nashville, myself, Amy, and our two dogs packed up everything & drove out to Denver. That was back in January 2018. we have absolutely loved every second of it so far from the people we’ve met, to the mountains we climbed both literally & figuratively.
more about me…
Pictured right is myself, my wife Amy and one of our dogs, Kona-an Aussie/Border Collie mix, on top of Mt. Elbert this past September 2018. We just got into hiking some of the 14er’s late last summer and cannot wait to hike some more. This was Kona’s first ever 14er. (Check out the video below to see how he did)
So when I say we will hike to the top of a mountain to shoot your wedding or elopement, I mean it. Let’s do it! ( and Kona can come too.)
Some of the mountains we’ve hiked this past year:
+Mt. Bierdstadt +Mt.. Huron +Mt. Elbert +La Plata Peak
so many pictures of me on a mountain…
While I do love to hike and camp and do yoga, you can more often than not find me sitting behind my computer editing and listening to music(Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Khruangbin, Interpol, Beach House, Pedro the Lion to name a few).
I love to read but I also really enjoy playing video games. Like a lot. I view & respect video games as a medium of interactive story telling-which is essentially what I’m hoping to do with you-capture and create not just another image to hang on a wall, but a story with emotions that you can feel & experience every time you come back to look at it.
why so much about me?
It may seem like a lot, so if you’ve made it this far- I appreciate it. But I tell you a lot about my self because I’m not going to be just another vendor or person with a camera at your wedding day or elopement- I want to be a friend that you are excited to have alongside you. You are opening up and letting me into some of the most intimate and special moments of your life & and who you are - and I feel I should do the same.
