Originally from Iowa, I am based in San Diego, California now. I return to visit family often, to get back in touch with my roots. It was where I was first drawn to photography by a desire to make a difference.
After earning my Bachelor's Degree in Photography at the Art Institute of Colorado, I freelanced in Denver until I was offered a fulltime opportunity as staff photographer for the Greeley Tribune newspaper; or, move to San Diego to become the associate for Brett Butterstein, one of the top ten wedding photographers in the world according to American Photo. I chose to travel the world and learn the ropes from Butterstein, a decision I don't regret.
I have since branched off with my own photography business. I shoot weddings, portraits, and adventures, mostly. I invest my entirety in making clients happy. I hope my images speak to that, but view my testimonial page to hear it from the horses' mouths.
Thank you for taking the time to visit. I hope our paths cross soon to create images you will love.
