I live with my family in a renovated 1909 craftsman home in Columbia City, a historic district in Seattle, WA — 20 minutes from Sea-Tac airport, and 150 minutes south of my hometown just across the Canadian border. Within walking distance of our home, I share an art studio with my wife Katherine, a clay artist and scientific illustrator. When not working side-by-side, we are found chasing our high energy children Moses (8) and Dorothy (4).

Philosophy

I love to photograph you in your own confidence, in your own skin, and if I’m lucky, in your own absurdity. As a wedding photographer, my desire is to tell a complete story — from beginning-to-end, revealing the depth and degrees of the relationships in front of me — complete with a sense of place. 

Documenting weddings has expanded my idea of what it means to be human: vulnerable, loved, affirmed, encouraged, celebrated; and what it means to be a good friend, better lover, more stylish dresser, and deeper dreamer. My appreciation for, and understanding of, the full range of cultures and class has kept my curiosity piqued and eyes hungry. I’m extremely grateful for the experiences that this job has afforded me.

Recognition

My wedding photography has been featured on Vogue.com, published in ELLE UK & ELLE Japan Wedding magazines, as well as other magazines and websites.
