Husband, father, optimist, photographer, ex-model and a kid at heart….Yep, that pretty much sums me up… but not completely. Tell you the truth writing about myself is one of the toughest things I’ve done for quite some time. I guess it’s because it’s so difficult to come across as witty, intelligent and genuine without sounding cheesy! Ha. Anyway…. here it goes… about me.
Photography is something I discovered rather late in life. After spending considerable time pursuing other careers which ultimately lead to lack of fulfillment or dissatisfaction… when the time was right, I found photography. I quickly realized that I had a natural eye for composition as well as a knack for capturing candid moments, that combined with “in front” of the camera experience gained through a whole lot of modeling (one of those dissatisfying gigs I mentioned before, but hey, to each his own, just wasn’t my cup of tea you know?). In any case, modeling made me realize that it was the photographer who had the awesome job! That realization along with the fact that I could take a pretty good picture, helped me to start my photographic career. Well sort of, I also started off by assisting top commercial, beauty and fashion photographers in NYC. That was my photography school. All the while I’d be working on my own fashion photography shoots on the side. For a while, I thought Fashion photography would be my calling. However, eventually and through a round about way, I discovered wedding photography, or perhaps it discovered me? Any how, life had a different plan… I started shooting weddings. I’ve not looked back since!
I LOVE photographing weddings. The energy, the anticipation, the tears of joy, the festivity, it is all such a positive moment in peoples lives. The fact that I’m privileged enough to be there to document it all as a witness, a story teller, a photographer is something that I am thankful for every day.
Gosh, I’m I starting to sound a bit cheesy? Just in case I am… I’ll end with this…
I love what I do. I pour my heart and soul into every wedding I shoot. If you like the images you see here, chances are you’ll love what I can do for you. Give me a call or shoot me an email. Let’s meet over a cup of coffee and maybe you’ll allow me the privilege to tell your story?
Thanks for dropping by!
