Events and Portraits


I'd love to be able to work with you on your event and/or portrait needs. My methods are different than other photographers, however, and you should be aware of my process and, most importantly, why I think you'll be happier with it. If you're looking for a traditional approach to event and portrait photography, I'm probably not the person you're looking for. But, if you want someone that will capture the true essence of your event or the personality of the people you wish to capture, I'm your guy. Read on!

True Personal Photography

I love taking pictures of people. There is nothing better than capturing the smile and laughter of friends and family enjoying each others' company or partaking in an adventure together. Looking back at a snapshot of time captured in an image reminds you of that particularly special moment in your or someone's life. But the pictures that truly remind you of a person's character and personality are rarely the ones you find taken in a typical portrait setting. People don't naturally line up and say "cheese". People do naturally interact, laugh, work, play, and live out their life's plans. Those moments are the ones your memory holds onto. I want you to look back at the pictures from a moment in time and smile ear to ear remembering not just the person and/or the event that happened, but the emotions too, ingrained in the faces present. I excel at capturing those memories in my photographs of people and events and you'll be happier with the results.

Think back to the pictures that you most charish of someone and I'll bet it's not the most recent school portrait or group of eight relatives staring at the camera. I'll bet it's a picture of your son and daughter when they were truly happy and playing in a sandbox, or your sibling laughing with their spouse, or your parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents reminiscing and smiling about the past.

If you want a wonderful collection picture that not only captures the essence of an event but the emotions and personalities of the people involved, please contact me:
