I am a professional wedding photographer (duh!) that specializes in fun, indulgent wedding celebrations for laid-back, fun-loving couples. What makes me different? While the other guys are all pose-y and in-your-face, I’m super laid-back and make you feel right at home. My style is candid and real. I focus on all the spontaneous, natural goodness that make up the biggest celebration of your life (to date that is!). The kind of moments that allow you to re-live your wedding day, not just remember it.
And, don’t worry, I may be super easy-going when it comes to photography, but I’m a total stickler when it comes to logistics (Excel is my jam!).
Oh, and I respond to emails too! (bonus!)
I love the grind . . . and by grind I mean coffee! For me, everyday starts with the sweet aroma of fresh ground beans, a whistling kettle, and my Chemex pourover brewer. It’s java nirvana! Afternoons are reserved for espresso and the creamy, foamy magic of lattes. I love me some lattes! I have to admit, though, my latte art skills could use some work but it’s a great excuse to practice!
Of all my loves, sports was my first (sorry, honey!). Travel hockey, high school football, college lacrosse. Sports pretty much consumed the first 22 years of my life. Today, I’m mostly a spectator – NFL Sundays, College Football Saturdays, The Final Four, The Frozen Four, The NHL Winter Classic, World Cup, The Masters, The Olympics, and any local college lacrosse games that I can get to. Still haven’t been to the Super Bowl though. Can you say Bucket List!
I’m the type of person who when interested in something goes all in! When my brother, the foodie, started collecting wine some years back, I got real curious, real fast! What were these mysterious bottles of grape juice with all this strange writing on them? So, naturally, to unravel the mystery, I got a job in a wine store. Best job ever! I wasn’t done though. I had to take it one step further and get my certification – yep, I am literally a certified wine geek!
I consider myself a very lucky man. I am a husband to a beautiful, loving, and supportive wife and a step-father to an amazing daughter. Life with these two lovely ladies definitely keeps me on my toes – and in my man-cave from time to time 😉 All joking aside, we are a tight-knit little family that loves to laugh together, tease each other, and make up our own Scrabble rules. I had NO idea what I was in for 10 years ago … and I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you guys!
Most folks binge watch, I binge listen. I’ve been into music ever since my brothers introduced me to the Rolling Stones. It was 1981. Tattoo You was the album, Start Me Up was the song. I was 9. Classic rock was my introduction to music and the alternative/grunge movement of the ‘90s was my heyday. My tastes have mellowed over the years, but I still hold air-guitar concerts in the living room from time to time – much to my wife’s chagrin 😉
My wife and I were bitten hard by the travel bug a couple of years ago. Rome, the Eternal City, was our awakening. And boy did it ever wake us up! The history, the architecture, la dolce vita, and, of course, the food! We can still taste the pizza! And the gelato – OMG! Italy was such an eye-opening experience for us. Seeing another part of the world and experiencing a different culture really brings perspective to your life. We can’t wait for our next adventure!
