BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP
When I began photographing weddings my approach was very clinical. It was all about getting it done and moving on to the next gig. Over the years, I have come to find that my clients view me as part of their family. We are really building a relationship. In the months prior to your wedding, we will have emailed, texted, talked on the phone, and most likely even done an engagement shoot and a bridal shoot. All these interactions help us get to know each other and most importantly be comfortable around each other. No nervous energy! No wondering, "Is he doing a good job?" All this trust, confidence, and most importantly the ability for you to relax knowing I am capturing amazing images, blends together to give you the perfect day for your wedding in terms of photo and video coverage.
WHERE I AM AT TODAY
I am a published and award winning photographer who has been into landscape and nature photography since 2012. My work has been featured on national sites such as The Weather Channel and network news affiliates throughout Alabama. It has also been noted by the Hilton Hotel brand, Florida State Parks, and Aqua Condominiums in Panama City Beach. In 2016 and 2017 I began blending my love of nature and landscape photography with weddings. This unique combination propelled me to the forefront in the local wedding photo market for brides who desire something different and more personal in the wedding photos.
WHERE I CAME FROM
In 1999, I filmed my first wedding as a favor to help a friend out. Over the years I have been able to set a standard of excellence across the state for video production covering everything from dance recitals, to marching band competitions, to weddings. Thanks to the internet, I have had an international influence among my peers since the year 2000 and have had the honor of passing on my knowledge and experience around the world!
I call Decatur, Alabama home and have lived in this area since 1988. I love being a photographer and having the opportunity to create stunning images for my clients. Part of me wishes I had gotten into photography before I turned 35! When not photographing people, places, or things, I enjoy playing guitar and keyboards. Traveling and visiting with friends and family are another way I like to keep the creative juices flowing.
While weddings in Alabama and Tennessee are literally 99% of what I do, I occasionally have models, musicians, and others who want me to take their photos. I happily do so! This feed is updated automatically every 24 hours. Check it out for all the latest images!
