For the past 20 years I have worked as a wedding documentarian and portrait photographer in Charlottesville. I love the challenge of capturing naturally the emotions and events of the day for posterity. My approach is creative, unobtrusive, and comprehensive.

I am a co-founder of LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph, Live Arts Theater, and Light House Studio.

For your destination wedding in Charlottesville, please allow me to capture your beautiful wedding photos.
