I'm a photographer, and this blog is all about sharing my work. Through the images presented here I hope you'll experience the fun, energy, honesty and emotion I have been entrusted to document.

I specialize in the photography of family history because I love to create memorable images of real life, both for you and for your entire family. If that sounds interesting, drop me a line. Iā€™d love to talk with you.

Until then, welcome.

Taken from Krista and Steve’s wedding, it is one of my favourite images ever šŸ™‚ It didn’t place as well as I thought it would…but then humour is so subjective, so I’m happy with how well it did.

From the same wedding, this image place 20th:

Earlier in the summer I went to Alaska to help my good friend Melissa shoot a wedding, and I convinced the security guard to let us out onto the catwalk of the Alyeska tramway pavilion at the top of the mountain:

Fourth place, not too shabby šŸ™‚
