Wedding and Elopement Photographer based out of Chico, California

Allow me to reflect with you... 

I’ve found I am instinctually drawn to imagery that emotes. And evokes a sense of significance and weight to a moment. A feeling of warmth and an inkling that something greater than what appears before me is happening. It's what I love and what I seek to create with people through my images.

Along the way, I've realized I am this way because I have found that we are all a part of something greater and grander than our ordinary selves. A greater journey we all connect with and take part in as we step from moment to moment. The commitment of marriage to now take part in that grander journey along with the one you love is one of the most sacred and significant moments in one's life. And it's what I love most about it. I hope the images we create together evoke that sense of significance to the moment.

The intimacy, intention, and gravity. The beauty, joy, and celebration.

The reflection that who you are and the commitment you are making are a part of something beautiful and amazing.

I am a proud father and smitten husband to my beautiful wife, Melinda. Ellie, Audrey, and Daniel are my kiddos. They are, in my estimation, the cutest things on the planet. Yeah, I’m in love.  I am a coffee/espresso enthusiast. But hopefully not a snob. I am a tinkerer and constant tapper. My wife thinks I have ADD. She also thinks my humor is lame. It probably is. (Maybe.) Maggie and Penelope don’t seem to mind though, so that’s cool. They’re my dogs. Finally… I am ever the optimist and I’ll tack extrovert on to that too. I am a musician, Christ-follower, and a hope-filled person. And I simply love to capture the real and sincere moments of life.



and the moment:

If you haven't noticed yet, I'm all about the moment: The time between the lines when we forget who we are on camera and simply live in the present.  For all the planning and arranging that goes in to photography, you can't plan these moments. They simply happen. This precise lack of forethought is what makes them beautiful. Thus, for me, the moment is an improvisation of life and an expression of the grander narrative of who we are: unique, authentic, real.

I would to love to capture your moment with skill, style, and care.
