Now that speaking about myself in third person is over, let me answer some questions that may be brewing in your mind.
We get that you're a storyteller, but you're kind of all over the place. What's going on? Shouldn't photographers focus on 1 genre?
Great question. I used to be trapped in the school of thought that photogs needed to narrow down and find a niche. "It's good marketing," people would claim. "Pick one and brand it with your name: Peter Parker, Wedding Photographer." While that would definitely set me on track to make more money, I could not - for the life of me – pick just one thing I wanted to photograph.
Ultimately, I realized it's totally okay to go against the industry norm. After all, I'm not just in it for the money. So, here I am – shooting anything and everything that I love to document: commercial projects, adventures, travel, lifestyle, weddings, still life, gastronomy, couples in love, etc. A mouthful of a list, but Limits, you can get outta here. I'm photographing everything that makes me come alive.
What's your artistic approach?
My mission is to find beauty in the ordinary. Perspective is everything, and I believe even the most broken things have beauty inside of them, if we take care to look a little deeper.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I have to give creds to my background in photojournalism (high school yearbook, thank you so much) for framing the way I see. My eyes are forever seeing in natural colors and candid moments in-between. As much as my style leans toward documentary, however, I enjoy posed and styled shoots too.
CAN WE GET YOU OVER TO NORWAY, Iceland, OR THE SOUTHERNMOST TIP OF NEW ZEALAND?
Absolutely! I love to explore. Let me know where, and we'll make sure I'm there to tell your story.
WE'VE NEVER BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED PROFESSIONALLY, AND ARE KIND OF CAMERA SHY. WILL YOU HELP US POSE?
Of course. My goal is to help you feel so relaxed and natural that you forget you're in the middle of a photoshoot. I'll throw out pose suggestions and give you direction here and there. For those candid moments, I ask good questions, then give you the space to react & enjoy each other's company while I step back and shoot away. The best pictures happen when you're being yourself with the ones you love.
What are your wedding prices?
The most basic package starts at $1800 for short & sweet ceremonies. I also customize packages to meet each couple's needs. Get in touch to find out more.
how do you feel about collaborations?
Collabs are my jam. Bloggers, brands, models, artists, photographers, whatever your label – let's make something beautiful together.
