Pretty much right out of high school, I impulsively joined the Army. I didn’t really know what I was getting into but I knew it was going to be an adventure. I ended up deploying twice but it was during my first tour in Afghanistan when I found my love for photography. I bought a decent camera and started shooting this crazy part of the world where I called home for a year. National Geographic shot a documentary (Inside The Green Berets) on my camp and ended up using my photos to promote their documentary. I was instantly turned on by the thrill of telling stories through images. Not to sound cheesy but it’s a pretty great feeling when you finally find the one thing you want to do for the rest of your life.
After exploring different avenues in photography, I found my niche in wedding photography. I quickly realized that there is nothing more rewarding than having the responsibility of documenting that incredible day in a couples life. Documenting that connection between two humans.
