I’m a wedding photographer based in Knoxville, Tennessee, though home was New England for me up until recently. My family moved to Tennessee in the summer of 2016, but my wedding travels frequently bring me to locations throughout the southeast as well as all of the New England States. I enjoy travelling and have done destination wedding work in Italy, Mexico and other locations across the eastern coastline.
Over the years my style of photography has evolved and become much more focused on the emotion and connection that my couples have for one another. In keeping with this as my focus, my attempt is to create beautiful moments and interactions that are often fleeting and lost. Unscripted and spontaneous is always my goal, which allows my couples to enjoy their time with one another, which ultimately allows us to capture some beautiful images.
My work ethic is relentless and my attention to detail is second to none. I bring this focus and passion for the art of photography to table for all of my wedding couples. Couples have often said that they choose to work with me for my style, vision and ability to play with light. I pride myself in being able to create images where most can not envision one being taken.
