PHOTOS THAT CELEBRATE LIFE.

OUTER BANKS, NORTH CAROLINA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I capture the intimate, romantic moments of your wedding

with love & creativity

Stories

I’m a storyteller

(Located in the Outer Banks, North Carolina)

Unlike the photography trends you’ve probably seen on Instagram or Pinterest, I intentionally do things a little different around here.

That’s because, after 20 years filming and photographing weddings, I’ve come to realize that every wedding day unfolds in its own unique way. And therefore, it deserves to be captured in its own unique way too. I approach each wedding with a documentarian’s creative eye – letting things play out how they may while I capture the spirit of the moment and of the people. And I do it all with a vibrant, signature cinematic style I honed back in film school.

Whether there’s uncontrollable laughter from someone falling in the pool, or intimate tears as you share your vows. I’ll preserve all the excitement and joy. And you’ll be able to relive it all through photos that look and feel distinctively you.

WHY I DO WHAT I DO

Learning your personalities, your stories, and dynamic together allows me to make sure you feel comfortable and photograph your day in a more personal way. I do this not only because you deserve to receive quality service, but to make sure you truly enjoy your day, take it all in, and have epic photographs to remember it by.

WEDDINGS

The unique and cinematic style you see in my portfolio comes from attending film school and learning the technical expertise to capture beautiful colors, unexpected effects, and the true art of storytelling.

COUPLES

Now, with 17 years experience as a professional photographer and filmmaker, I love the challenge of using any surrounding or scenario your wedding day brings. And turning it into a gallery and film filled with the best stills and scenes, in front of vibrant sunsets or glowing evenings, that tell the story of your day in a meaningful and original way.
