The Love of My Life
I used to joke about being the single male wedding photographer. Honestly, calling myself a hopeless romantic is an understatement. I grew up in a generation that really didn't believe in love. But all of my prayers were answered when I met Olivia. Now I was oblivious at first. I had no idea she liked me. In fairness, I wasn't used to people liking me... I wasn't used to people taking an interest in me. Little did I know, our little text conversations here and there would change my life completely.
QUEEN OF MY HEART
We Were Dancing
Overtime our conversations got deeper, and slowly I opened up to her with the certainty that she would run away and that I'd end up back at square 1: alone. But.... she didn't. She showed me unconditional love, and more importantly taught me what unconditional love truly looks like. Her kind heart and kindred spirit turned my entire world upside down... little did I know that it would shape my approach to weddings. When my first wedding of the season approached, I realized something hand changed, I shot that wedding not as a photographer doing his job, but as if it was my own. And then things started click....
Dancing With Our Hands Tied
I FELT why the details all the way down to the shoes were important: when I am old and my brain starts to lose it's potency, I want to be able to know for certain that I can remember the best day of my life in it's entirety. I FELT why the true meaning of tears of joy: because sometimes tears are the best way to express how you feel. But most importantly, I SAW THE BEAUTY IN MARRYING YOUR BEST FRIEND: because I could finally relate to what it means to have someone in your life that loves you to the ends of the earth. When I approach a wedding, I'm shooting for your future children and grand children, I'm shooting for grandma who couldn't make it, and, most importantly, I am shooting for you, becuase this is your legacy

In 2012 I set out on a quest: to spread love to the world one image at a time. The joy I get when photographing the abundance of special moments at a wedding is similar to the joy I get when flying a plane: a big cheesy grin. It simply compares to nothing else.
If you like to get in front of my camera, and join me in spreading love to the world, in addition to having some fun, getting a little goofy, and having the time of your life, then shoot me an email! I'd love to hear from you!
I am a Grand Rapids Michigan wedding photographer & portrait photographer located in Kent County; but, I also service the rest of Michigan with style and poise. Although based in the Mitten state, I have dedicated my life to chasing stories to tell when I am older, and I'll go any distance to tell them, not just Grand Rapids, Holland, Saugatuck, Muskegon, Detroit, Traverse City, Mackinac Island, Pictured Rocks and the rest of the cities in Pure Michigan: I travel the WORLD to document weddings & people. My love traveling is reflected in my portfolio, having the pleasure to capture special moments in places such as Daytona Beach, Orlando, & the lovely beaches of Los Angeles just to name a few. Attending college in Daytona Beach Florida has allowed me to service the beautiful sunshine state, making Florida a second home. I will always approach weddings & portraits with my unique perspective: Grand Rapids, and Beyond.
Thank you for contacting me.
I will respond shortly.
