My enthusiasm for photography is a product of a love affair between my passion for technology and, some would say, a chronic case of nostalgia.
The ambition that drove my coursework in general photography, photojournalism, and digital post-processing, was wrapping myself up in the technical ins and outs of the creation of a digital photo. Then, in turn, applying that knowledge to preserve an authentic moment and its story forever.
Having done photos for the newspaper, event photography, and a contract with a popular local nightclub throughout college, I feel my style can be summed up as sincere, genuine, and above all, honest.
It’s that experience that I used in my coverage of weddings after I finished grad school – a side hobby that quickly grew to the point where I had to limit it to about 12 commitments a year. Since then, my work has appeared in “Real Maine Weddings” magazine, and I have been accepted into, and have won awards from, the Wedding Photojournalists Association of America.
For weddings, it is a more intimate experience to be the one fortunate enough to spend quality time getting to know a couple during an engagement shoot. To then share the overwhelming day of the ceremony with you, and then to be one who processes the photos, and putting together the album. I’ve made a lot of friends this way, and that’s honestly how I view the folks who I am lucky enough to get to work with.
Moreover, as a husband and as a father, I am growing as a person every day to be the best I can be – and the photos that I take along the way have only improved as well.
