I love to photograph most anything that makes me laugh and smile. In Charleston, we are the second best wedding destination city to get hitched, I love to travel. My first wedding, I photographed was in 2005 in Charlotte,NC and 2022 is my 17th year in business as a professional photographer.

I am also available for travel for portraits, equestrian, marriage ceremonies, or commercial projects to be the best to capture your day and beautiful moments of your events and portraits.

I want to create imagery that reflect your goals, dreams, and desire to have your life stories told. weather its a portrait, your big day, A beautiful relationship shared with your horse, dog or a commercial project. my goal is to be a great listener, long before I pick up my camera . Your answers will help guide me, to get most beautiful wedding or portraits . I am lucky to have a front row seat to observe beauty unfolding of your nuptials, and portraits in an authentic way. The desired photographs you want, styled your way in traditions, heirlooms, and legacy are reflective of your values.
