Since I was little, I had very little interest in books....unless there were lots of images. I was very much a visual person. Certain images would speak to me and I loved that feeling of being drawn into the story. Naturally, I was attracted to images and stories of people. As such, the majority of my work revolves around people and their unique relationships with others.
Although I've been photographing professionally for 15 years, it was 11 years ago that I left my day job as an Equity Trader in pursuit of the ideal work/life balance. I have been blessed with an amazing family and an occupation that invites me into the lives of families all over the world to be their visual historian. I specialize in weddings in California, Europe, and Asia.
When the camera is not in my hands, I spend time with my wife raising four ridiculously beautiful children in Toronto, Canada and documenting every moment in their lives.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM ME...
I have over 15 years of experience photographing over 500 private events around the world — real, unpredictable events. Everything you see on my site are from commissioned clients, not styled 'editorials' where everything is staged and completely controlled. You can rest assured, I have the technical expertise to handle your wedding but most importantly, I will be there to take care of you. I will be your 'bridesman'. I have experience fixing updo's, bustling dresses, and be the best emotional support on the most significant day of your life. I will be the one person you will spend more time with on your wedding day...including your soon-to-be husband.
For the Mr., I am a hair care expert, a stylist and can also tie your bowtie. Do not be surprised if a 'bromance' comes about from the wedding experience. It may feel odd at first, but it is very normal.
I am well travelled and I know the ins and outs about traveling abroad for work. Throughout my travels, I have made deep connections and strong relationships with many of the top suppliers abroad to help you with your wedding plans.
