You believe in your story. I surrender to it. Capture it. And hand it back to you in a way you can remember forever.

You're about to embark on the most wonderful of adventures. Because you're here that tells me you value epic, mind-blowing photography. Well done!

I'm fortunate, and sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how much I love what I do. I illustrate every story you trust me with.

Incredible photographs result from a trusted relationship between us. This comes from a friendship, and from time invested in getting to know you, and why you have chosen the different elements that will make up your wedding day. Think of me as a visual biographer of sorts, a narrator, telling your story through the images of your day.

I want you to be blown away by how beautiful you really are, by how beautiful I see you to be.

Lets get started!

+ you are beautiful

Art Competition Excitement

by November 22nd, 2008 1 Comment »

A quick update on what’s been happening lately. The fall offers several art competition opportunities in the local area. I’ve always viewed entering these competitions as a way to nurture my creative side as well as gain feedback on my work from a juror distinguished in the field of art.

A successful venture to say the least, I was lucky enough to earn the distinction of “top five” in the Whitewater Valley Annual Art Competition. The juror this year was James Yood, from the Art Institute in Chicago and the director of New Arts Journalism program. What thrilled me the most though was the fact that he writes regularly for the well known photography publication, “Aperture”, which makes his kudos all the more meaningful and exciting for me. The photograph I entered is titled, “Going Green” and is available as a giclee print.

I also entered two images in the Richmond Art Museum Annual Juried Exhibition Competition this year. Although I didn’t receive any sort of distinction, I consider it an honor to be chosen to participate in the exhibition. (You may recognize one of the images from an earlier post!)

Both shows are still hanging until mid December. If you’re out an about, I urge you to stop by IU East and Richmond Art Museum to see some great art. Both shows are beautifully hung and offer a mix of mediums to view and appreciate.

Like what you see? Let's set up a time to talk!
