I live in Fairfield with my wife Holly, and three teenage children, Helene, Cole and Grant. We have a dog, Jasper, and two cats. My wife and I are both west-siders (LaSalle and Seton), and UC grads. Besides photography, I love hiking, camping and backpacking; strong flavored food (coffee, beer, scotch, hot sauce); Scouting with my boys; and gardening.
I began studying photography in 1993 as a hobby. A friend asked me to photograph her wedding in 2002, and I quickly became hooked on photographing weddings. Within a couple of years I was photographing dozens a year - on film in those days. In 2009 I quit my computer programming job to focus on photography full-time.
I love the fast-pace, challenges, and creativity of wedding photography. I also love capturing the emotion and beauty of such an important event.
In addition to weddings I provide family, couples, maternity, and HS senior photography. And commercially, I provide professional commercial, product, live-event, headshot photography.
