Headshot Vert

I fell in love with photography in high school and studied photojournalism in college. Before my wedding photography days, I honed my craft taking portraits – and chasing down breaking news stories for newspapers in my home state of Texas. I’m still a photojournalist at heart; telling your story is the soul of my work.

Based in San Diego, I’ve been a professional wedding photographer working throughout California since 2004 and I still find new inspiration at every wedding. I love getting to know the couples I work with and take pride in my ability to capture the heartfelt emotions and unexpected moments that you’ll want to remember forever.

Much of my career has been spent contracting for some of the best photography companies in San Diego and I am grateful for the outstanding community of wedding professionals that exists in San Diego.

I spend my free time outdoors as much as possible: I’m an avid rock climber, and I love backpacking, camping, sailing and hiking.

My wife Katy and my dog Sammy are my best friends!

Inspired by my surroundings

I don’t want to take the same photos over and over again or become known for one specific thing.   I hope to always be inspired!  I draw the most energy from beautiful settings and the raw emotions that are so unique to each event I photograph.  Photography has given me a portal into peoples lives and the world around where I can connect and explore till my heart is content.

“A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”


“Like the people you shoot and let them know it.”


“F8 and be there.”


“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.”


“If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough”


“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”


“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”


“It is more important to click with people than to click the shutter.”


“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”


“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”
