I’m a photographer.


I came to Portland from Boise, Idaho. I quickly fell in love with the city while on a photo assignment and instantly decided I needed to move. I live near Mt. Tabor with my two cats and partner Jess. Outside of photography, I spend my time cycling, working on my Miata, and touring the local vegan restaurant scene.

I’ve been working as a photographer for 10 years.

A few years back, I decided to move to Portland, Oregon.

Capturing these stories for others gives me an incredible feeling of satisfaction, one that I've never found anywhere else.

I wanted to be closer to the nature of the Pacific Northwest, to be near the ocean, and to surround myself with interesting and artistic people. Through my travels, I never find a place that feels more like home.

I'm often asked why I shoot weddings and the answer is simple. There is no better workplace. Where else are you surrounded by love, beauty, happiness and joy every time you go to work?
