About Me

I am a classically trained wedding and portrait photographer and I absolutely love what I do. My primary studio is located in Austin, Texas but I also spend a significant amount of time photographing in northern California and other locations throughout the year.

My grandfather was a professional photographer and introduced me to this amazing craft when I was only 11 years old. I bought my first camera from an offer on the back of a box of ALL detergent and took it to Europe for 6 weeks. When I returned I was completely hooked on photography.

I later attended Brook's Institute of Photography in the mid 1980's where I studied a myriad of studio and on location film-based photographic techniques. Like many photographers, I have made the transition to high resolution digital cameras in recent years, but I still shoot film as well.

I love to photograph people and am constantly on the hunt for authentic images that tell a powerful story. Shooting weddings is a favorite of mine, not only because it is such an important day in the lives of the bride and groom as well as their family and friends but also because most people come to wedding expecting to be photographed.

I very much look forward to meeting you and co-designing a unique approach to photograph your special day!
