If you're looking for the best experience & talent in Kansas City wedding and portrait photography then you have come to the right place. I've been a professional wedding photographer for more than 12 years after obtaining my BFA from the Savannah College of Art & Design. Since moving to the Midwest, I’m had the honor of being selected as the photographer at more than 200 weddings in Kansas City over the last 8 years. For me, wedding photography is the perfect way to satisfy my desire to create beautiful portraits & tell timeless stories.
My specialty is in creating a comfortable environment where my subjects can relax & have fun. My style can be described as a story-telling style of wedding photography, combining traditional posed photos with pictures captured in the moment throughout the day. I want to not only capture all the special candid moments during your wedding and reception, but also help create amazing semi-posed photographs using creative lighting techniques and locations available to us on your wedding day. There are many wonderful locations for wedding photos in the Kansas City area, and I am happy to take you just about anywhere you'd like to go so we can create some incredible photographs together.
Unlike a number of studios, I photograph every wedding personally! All of the images you see on my site were created IN CAMERA with minor Photoshop work on the final image. I take pride in creating timeless images & you can expect this quality at your own wedding. Unlike many new, self-taught "photographers" I've invested in all the top-end professional digital cameras and lenses, medium format film cameras, portable studio lighting, etc. - that is needed to take the best possible photographs under virtually any conditions.
My job is not only to take great pictures of your wedding day, but to do so in a way that helps to maximize your enjoyment of your day. I work hard to memorize names and make those important formal photos a fun memorable experience! And when it comes to candid photos, I watch unobtrusively in the background, waiting for the moments that will tell the spirit and the joy of the day.
