I love memories and they are important to me because they can't be recreated only retold. This is why photography is more than just a job or hobby for me.
My parents gave me my first camera on my seventh birthday. Yep you guessed it, an ole 35mm film camera. That was the beginning of my love for photography. Don't worry I've upgraded now! My Canon 5D Mark II can be found with me often and if my camera could talk about all the beautiful people and landscapes it has captured the stories would be endless.
To say I love people would be an understatement. I love every opportunity I have to be around people, to laugh with them, to listen, to find ways to encourage others. Are you seeing the picture how important people are to me? A few more facts about me, first of all I love Jesus and want to glorify the Lord with my life, if there's a volleyball around I want to play, I enjoy music - playing the piano, violin, and guitar for my own enjoyment - trust me I'm not concert material. Reading a good book energizes me because I love to learn. And I think the Spanish language is beautiful, no I'm not at all fluent.
I live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma but I can often be found traveling for missions with my camera. I've traveled to 38 States in the U.S. and 15 countries on 4 continents. People ask me which country is my favorite but I just can't say because they all have unique cultures and people that I have come to know and call friends.
Choosing the right photographer for your wedding day, senior or family portraits is very important. As a photographer my goal is to create for you timeless images that will hang on your walls, tell stories, and bring many smiles and laughs from the memories and milestones in your life for years to come. Just as important I strive to make our experience together fun, creative, and stress free. I want to capture those candid moments and very importantly make you feel comfortable in front of my lens. I'm honored and thrilled you're considering me to be a part of the wedding day of your dreams, shooting your senior portraits to tell your friends and family you're graduating high school, or looking for a new family picture to hang above your fireplace or send to your friends in a Christmas card. I am here for you and delighted to serve!
