I recently Had the opportunity to travel to Puerto Rico to shoot a wedding. I had not done a destination wedding before, however it was an amazing experience. The ceremony was beautiful. Puerto Rico is a amazing part of the world the people are inviting and kind. I could not be happier to have shot the wedding for this lovely couple. The trip and wedding turned out very well.

I Recently took a trip to Wyoming to see Grand Tetons & Yellowstone National Parks. Words can’t describe the beauty of either of these parks. Both spots are place everyone should see . The thing that I most enjoyed about being out west was the big sky and the dry air. This trip was a much needed adventure. I was not out there nearly long enough, current conditions from the Cliff Creek fire did make taking certain photos rather difficult but it was still incredible. All photos are available for purchase please look under the pricing tab for more details.

I recently went to Colorado on a trip to shoot some landscape photos. I was able to shoot three really incredible spots. On the first day I hiked up the Rockies and photographed what things look like at 14,000 ft. On day two I drove to the top of Pikes Peak again at 14,000 ft or 14,115 if you want to be exact. After Pikes Peak I headed over to Garden of the Gods. Truly breath taking views.  The trip was one I will never forget. It was challenging at times but what good adventure isn’t. I got rained on chased by animals and set next to some characters on both flights but thats what makes a good story.

Photographing Models In Atlanta.







I had the opportunity and pleasure to work with an aspiring model named Kristen. The day was mostly over cast witch was ok since we were not working in the studio for these shots. Me and the crew hit up a couple of local spots and got some good images before the rain came in. All in all a very fun day of shooting. More big things to come !

I recently went down to Jekyll Island to do some landscape photography. I had been there before but it had been several years ago and I did not have a camera at that time. I really wanted to focus on Drift Wood Beach and see what was there to photograph. Trying to achieve the look I wanted really depended on the tides and lighting. Jekyll Island is an amazing place, and it was an amazing trip.
