A Bit About Me
Taking pictures has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember.
I'm a homegrown photographer based in Wisconsin. I grew up in Green Bay, a small humble town full of cheese and football. It was in high school that I found my passion for the arts. Photographing my very first wedding at 17, I continued on that path to start my own business. I found odd jobs here and there, healthcare, department of corrections, none of which I liked. I always came back to photography. I found love in photographing weddings, automotive, graphic design, real estate, fantasy imagery, portraits, corporate headshots, and community events. After 8 years of shooting mainly weddings, I decided to tackle a different goal in 2020. Commercial & business photography. What started by chance turned out to be the perfect mix of technical challenge and creative outlet, and now I am looking to expand my skills on all fronts.

Dedicated to working closely with clients to understand their photography goals and desires prior to their wedding.

I am able to work with what customers need and how to help them achieve the look and style they request.
