“I have a passion for traveling. To date, I’ve visited 17 countries and nearly all 50 states to take pictures. Each year, an unhealthy (some would say) amount of my income goes towards traveling. There’s nothing more satisfying than the moment where a scene is unraveling and my camera is within reach. When the screen plays back what I captured, I feel like celebrating (and am embarrassed when I get caught doing so). I still think photography is simply magic. The fact that you can hit a button and have a moment in time stop would’ve literally been science fiction 200 years ago!
Something that comes to no surprise to those who know me is I’m a HUGE NERD. Period! I can geek out with anyone about cars, motorcycles, space and spaceflight, Apple products, computers, guitars, drums, recording equipment, cameras, and anything with moving parts! I have dozens of old worn sketchbooks that I used to tote around with me as a kid full of drawings of everything I listed above. I haven’t changed at all from being five when it comes to dreaming about gadgets, fast things, and anything that can be taken apart.
I want to extend a “Thank you!” to you for reading this. If you’re someone’s fiance and are trying to figure out who you want to be your wedding photographer, I truly appreciate you spending this much time on my website. I want you to know that weddings are one of my favorite things to shoot. A wedding day is a story. I love being there to capture that story and turn it into an album full of memories. I love the atmosphere of a wedding. It’s a room full of the couple’s favorite people, how awesome is that? As long as my couple is happy, stress-free, and in good company, I can’t take a bad picture. I’ll do whatever it takes to get the shot, including flagging down a stranger on a boat to let me hop in so I can get a better angle on the group (which has happened). Having shot over 100 weddings, I’m no stranger to how to handle the task of capturing such an important day. My clients can rest assured knowing I have redundant equipment, second shooters and data backs ups of back ups of back ups.
“So, what’s next?” You ask. Let’s meet! Email me at email@example.com, Let me know what your date is, and let’s get together and talk!
Thank you so much for visiting my website! If you like what you see, please tell a friend! My company’s growth has been entirely based on word of mouth, and I want it to continue to grow that way… organically. Your support means so much to me!”
If you’re trying to figure out my connection with my friend Taylor Morris, I suggest you read “Do you know my friend Taylor Morris” to learn about how our friendship started and how it continues.”
