Visual Storyteller

I am a visual storyteller of people’s lives. The goal of my journalistic photography is to tell authentic stories that celebrate life’s unscripted moments.

Set up a consultation and we can discuss creating images that celebrate family legacy, commercial commissions or portraiture.

I am photographing a limited number of weddings in 2020.  Please click weddings to view portfolios
