What makes me, me?
I developed my own pictures in my father's darkroom when I was 10 years old.
I was always the devoted dad with the big camera at my kid's soccer games.
In the summer I love driving my 10 year old Porsche Boxster, top down, music blaring.
I love good food.
I have so much fun photographing weddings that I don't feel like I'm working.
In 2017 I will photograph my 100th wedding.
I'm creative, very organized, and fun.
I love dogs.
I love to travel. I've been to Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia. I've also been to England, France, Italy, Spain, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Hungary.
My life is filled with happiness.
I've been to 46 of the 50 states.
Bruce Springsteen is my favorite music artist. I have traveled around the country to go to his concerts. I stopped counting at 50 shows.
My travel has really helped fuel my creativity. I love photographing people and cultures. Here is one of my favorites, taken on the Moscow river in Moscow on almost the longest day of the year. I was walking around a bend, it was almost midnight with an ethereal glow in the sky, and there they were. People partying and salsa dancing.
As your photographer my goal is to capture your unique personality, your emotion, and your natural expressions. I want you to see your images and say "Wow, that's incredible, or "OMG, that's the way I felt. I will remember that moment for the rest of my life."
I've entered images in the prestigious Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) print competition, where I won a Silver for Ari and the Rabbi and a Silver for My Birthday at my Aunt's Wedding.
My technical skills go well beyond photography. I'm a digital artist and my style is imprinted on every one of my images. It's a lot different than when you hire a company and you don't know which photographer will show up.
When you hire me you are commissioning my artistic vision.
