I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer with over 15 years’ experience. I began Vine wedding photography to provide great images at an affordable cost.
Finding new and unique ways to show off a bride and groom is what I love about photographing weddings. I also really enjoy getting to know each couple and their families to document their perfect day. I have a strong technical background from Biomedical Photography at RIT combined with over 5 years of wedding photography experience. Along with photography, you can find me mountain biking and traveling.
I have had a love for photography as far back as I can remember, whether it be photographing my wife and kids, or photographing nature during my hunting and fishing trips. My love for wedding photography began a few years back when I was asked to help a friend photograph a wedding, I was instantly hooked! Many weddings later, I continue to keep chasing that next perfect image. My favorite part of photographing weddings are all the emotions that come with their day. Whether it be a tear, a laugh, or children giggling, I love to capture emotions!
While studying Photojournalism at RIT, wedding photography became a very natural transition. I love capturing the emotion of the moment as well as the details of the big day. There is a unique story leading up to your wedding day and I want to convey that. When I’m not photographing I like climbing high peaks and distance running.
I have been a photographer my whole life, and professionally in studios the last 15 plus years in the Rochester area. Photography is not only a career, but a sincere passion, and what power it is to know that I am capturing a moment in time for them to remember forever! I love to make people laugh so they feel comfortable in front of the camera, and my favorite part about capturing a wedding day would have to be later on in the night when everyone is dancing and having a great time. Its great to capture them after the stress of the day has gone and they are having so much fun.
