Lets get personal.

 

After all how do I expect you to open up to me if I don't open up to you. 

 

I was a baby once: I was born and raised here in Sacramento California. I have to ask my brothers and sister but I think I am my mothers favorite.

I am married: I am a proud husband to a caring wife.

I have 4 dogs: When not documenting others I am usually getting up and down from my desk to let my dogs out into the yard. With a combined total of 16 feet, during the winter it could be a long process trying to keep the floors clean.

I like to have fun: I am not sure if I have ever grown up. 

I prefer romantic movies to "action packed" one: I have no idea how this happened but I do know my mother always forced me to watch a lot of romantic comedies. My two favorite actors are Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson.

Beer or Wine: Always beer.

Dad x 2: I have a beautiful baby boy named Oliver and another on the way. I can't wait to find out the gender.

 

Why Wedding Photojournalism?

This is the most important thing you can know about me when it comes to photography. I was really shy growing up. During the dances I would stand against the wall and watch those around me have fun. At parties I would watch those around me fall in love. At school I would watch those around me experience life. Sound depressing? For my teenage self it kind of was. However, if given the chance to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. Little did I know I spent my early years sharpening my ability to understand peoples emotion. I was honing over and over the ability to read a situation to the point where I knew what was going to happen before anyone else did. I developed an ability to understand someone by overhearing a few lines of a conversation they had. This is why naturally I gravitated towards wedding photojournalism. It allows me to exercise that muscle I developed in my earlier years. Couple this with a romantic and exciting occasion such as a wedding and I am all in.

 

Hopefully I have given you some kind of insight into myself. Feel free to go back and review my Brides and Groom page now that you know more about the mindset of the photographer who took them.
