Self-portrait engagement photo.
My interest in photography began when I started to travel the world and see places and things that I wanted to document for my own memories. In 2002, I shot my first wedding and immediately fell in love with photographing people after seeing the impact that my work could make on peoples' lives. But even then, it wasn't until 10 years later when I got engaged that the significance of a wedding truly resonated with me.
My wife Loretta expressed the importance of celebrating with the people who were near and dear to our hearts — that a wedding was not just an event, but a special occasion meant to be shared with our family and friends. Today, my wedding work is not just about capturing the details that are meticulously planned, creating amazing portraits of brides and grooms, or shooting the formal events throughout the day; it is about documenting all the fleeting moments that are treasured forever — the first time a groom sees his beautiful bride walking down the aisle, the moment a father gives his precious daughter away, the sheer joy of two people starting a new chapter in life, and the loving relationships among families and friends.
Photographing weddings is not just for my own memories, nor just for the memories of my clients; it is also for the future generations of their families to cherish.
I am honored and humbled by all of the couples who have trusted me to enter their lives on such an intimate occasion and immortalize such memories. It is this level of trust that moves me to continue this journey as a wedding photographer. With each and every wedding, I am reminded of how blessed I am to have a wife who truly values this celebration and the importance of relationship. I would be grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your special day.
