When I obsessively started taking tons of photos back in high-school, I never imagined that years later I would have hundreds of amazing weddings in my portfolio. I've always followed my passions, and after spending many years DJing around the world, I wanted to create art that was more original. And I fell in love with photography.
Choosing to shoot such glamorous and tear-jerking weddings (no, I am not immune, either) came naturally, partly because I am a bit of a romantic myself, and because I was always drawn to people’s real emotions.
I love what I do so much that sometimes I forget it's work, because it’s different every time – no two weddings, locations or couples are the same, and this makes things incredibly exciting for me.
Wedding photography has taken me all around the world. I've shot in about a dozen different countries on 4 different continents and had some unforgettable experiences in remote places like Mongolia, Phuket, India, and Belgium. So no matter where your wedding is, whether it's in a village on the other side of the world, an exotic beach, or an intimate backyard wedding in NYC, I'll be there with you.
Memorable Images that Will Stay with You Forever
I enjoy everything about weddings, but my favorite moments to document are when couples get ready, showing genuine, real emotions. The morning always feels unlike any other part of the day. And portrait sessions, when we can get creative, possibly take an adventurous pursuit to find a unique location, and make photos that can also standalone as works of art.
Despite Personal Victories I Never Cease to Strive for Perfection
I feel really proud of all the awards I have won over the years for my wedding work, and the shots that have been published in national wedding magazines, but I'm most proud when I can cook a tasty dinner for friends and family without the smoke alarm going off!
