My love of photography began in college when I took a photography class as a prerequisite for my advertising degree. The challenge of creating the picture that I saw in my head and capturing it on film was addicting.
I entered a few of my pictures into a national contest sponsored by Nikon. I was not expecting to win but was pleasantly surpised to find out that I had been selected as one of the top 2% of photographers who had entered. My photo was published nationally in the "Best of College Photography" hardbound publication. This fueled my interest in the art and I continued to shoot pictures throughout college and beyond.
Today, I shoot mostly weddings. I like weddings because it's a day when people are trying to be their best. They get all dressed up and go through a ritual that is very familiar yet so hard to pull off. There is a lot of stress in shooting a wedding but I love it. It's fast paced and crazy and therein lies the fun. My Bride and Groom are on an eight hour roller coaster ride that goes by in a blur and my job is to capture the moments. When it's all said and done, we're all exahausted but their memories are firmly tucked away inside my cameras.
I now have hundreds of weddings under my belt ranging from very simple affairs to my first celebrity wedding in 2010. Also in 2010, I was selected as one of the top wedding photographers in Dallas according to The Knot Magazine's "Best of Weddings 2010". I earned that distinction thanks to the many brides in Dallas who voted in the annual wedding magazine's publication.
I'd like to think that I do not need to speak for my photography here; but let my photographs on the following pages speak for themselves. As your photographer, I hope to give you the same joy that I feel when I look at pictures that I have created. It gives me great satisfaction to know that my pictures will be a part of your family for years to come.
