Photography started out as a hobby for me while living in Los Angeles and quickly grew in to a passion. At that point, I jumped career paths and went back to school to study Photojournalism at San Francisco State University. Since going full-time in 2009, I have photographed over 250 weddings, won The Knot Best of Weddings 9 times running, and been inducted into the The Knot Hall of Fame. I have photographed international personalities such as Tony Bennett, John Legend and Joe Biden. I’ve been published in USA Today, The Knot Magazine, ESPN.com, American Motorcyclist and countless others. I’ve worked for Google, Subway, Kraft, YMCA, The Montessori School, the US Department of Labor and numerous local publications, businesses, churches, colleges and teams.
My wife and I grew up in Metamora and had our first date as high school freshman on the Spirit of Peoria. Today we live in Washington, Illinois and have five children that challenge and amaze us every day.
I am truly fortunate to be able to support my family doing something I love. If you're looking for a photographer, I'd love to hear from you. Cheers!
