About me

Fairy tales weddings. Real life fairy tales. That's what weddings are. From the moment the question is proposed, to the riding off into the sunset, it's a story of adventure, hope and love.

I am a story teller. Someone who loves to infuse experiences and what I have learned in life, into my wedding photography.

I grew up in the Quachita Mountains of Arkansas. I was a curious kid. Always exploring. Always learning. Always wanting to know what was over the next hill. I helped my grandfather in his pastures and in his gardens. My dad was a school teacher, and a preacher, and he raised me with a profound faith in God, and hope for life. My mother instilled in me a love and desire to care for others.

Over the years, and with my work, I have traveled to places near and far. I have seen and experienced life's best and worst. Standing behind a lens has taught me things in life I could have only dreamed. My own life has shaped the photographer I am today.


I have learned to love God. Love people. Love life.

Faith, family and photography.

I hope you enjoy the story, and I would love to share yours.
