My style is a combination of fine-art and photojournalism.

I am a fine-art wedding & portrait photographer, shooting both film & digital but mostly shooting digital. With the use of natural light and a hybrid approach to my work, I strive for a style that is honest, delicate and detailed.

I live in the city of Germantown, Maryland, surrounded by trees and farms with my beautiful wife and 2 year old dog. I am a firm believer in true love, and I try my hardest to document it in its most raw and authentic form.

I truly believe that weddings are an incredibly wonderful occasion. While I love all the decorations, details and dresses, this is not the most important part of a wedding. The heart of a wedding (the forming of a marriage and the joining of two lives) is invisible, I love to capture the outpouring of the marriage. The people and candid emotions are my focus in any wedding we photograph and I promise to make it my priority at yours.

It’s really important to me, that my photographs are the most natural record of the day. I capture everything as it is, focusing on the emotions, the mood, the connection between people. I even want the portraits to be the part of the story, so I encourage every couple to be themselves and act exactly as they feel, and let me worry about the amazing landscape in the background. In my opinion, only photos like these can bring back the best memories in 10,20 or 30 years.
