When photographing people, there are two major philosophies: capturing a moment that already exists, or helping to create a moment.


I strive to capture the moments which elude others: the flash of a true smile as someone laughs, the moment a groom reads a letter from his betrothed, the kiss a bride steals from her fiancé before the ceremony when she thinks no one is looking.


I  hope that my images convey the love and passion I have for both the art of photography and the people in the photographs.


I live in Orange County, California, and love a good plane ride with a warm cup of coffee.
