I'm an Army veteran, my background as a Medic easily translated into Nursing. Seeing intense emotions in my patients inspired me to capture those emotions in photos. I strive to emblazon your raw feelings, be it love, happiness, sadness, pride, excitement or passion in your images.
Living and working in scenic Bozeman, MT is the culmination of a lifelong dream. Being able to get out of the house and explore the mountains is a luxury that most people don't get to experience. I am in my most relaxed state while sitting in the mountains with my cameras and my dog.
My shooting style is to be in the background and capturing your event. While staging is unavoidable, my every intent is to make each shot look spontaneous. I prefer to capture organic moments, with real emotion.
In medicine I have seen what many would consider tragedy and sorrow, what I see is two people who love each other taking on life with the family they built together. It's actually quite beautiful.
Photography is my way to capture those moments and emotions in the beginning of your life together. The only thing better than young love, is old love. I hope that some day you'll be able to share these pictures with your grand children and show them what true love looks like. Having worked with older generations, I can tell you that you will have these pictures for the rest of your life and that you'll be proud of them.
My style of shooting is to be in the background, capturing the little moments. I use a long lens to stay in the background, which allows me to get pictures of organic interactions between you and your guests. My composition is in the "low key" spectrum, meaning that most of my shots have deep and rich contrasting colors. Most wedding photographers shoot with a "high key" spectrum, with lots of over exposed whites and gold colors. I employ both techniques to give you truly unique photos, while also keeping one hand in the traditional photos that every bride needs!
I will capture who you are. We all know that a picture is worth a 1000 words, it's my job to find the right ones for you.
I love shooting portraits, it's a fun way for us to work together and creatively collaborate to build your dream shots! I really enjoy trying different things, the one on one sessions are where some of my favorite shots come from. I'm always open to suggestions and I'll do my best to bring your vision to life!
