In photography and in life, I'm drawn to vibrant color, happy energy, natural scenery, and a great story.
Since 2001, my photography business has led me to destinations around the country to document people's stories. Years of experience have taught me how to make people feel comfortable and confident in front of a camera. I make an effort to get to know the people I work with, so my photos can reflect genuine aspects of their personalities and relationships.
I'm married to a brilliant and hilarious software engineer, and we have two young children and a dog. When I'm not working, you'll probably find me paddleboarding on Lake Anne or hiking at Great Falls Park. My perfect day would involve an outdoor adventure with my family, a delicious vegetarian dinner, and a good book or a bad reality show.
I'm lucky to live at Lake Anne in beautiful and dynamic Reston, Virginia, near Washington, D.C. Reston provides an ideal setting for photography, with natural settings that include lakes, forests, and trails, as well as urban settings with dramatic architecture.
Before moving to Reston, I lived a grand life of adventure in Colorado for several years. That was a pretty great place to be a photographer, too.
My work has been published in several magazines and books, including:
Photo District News
Popular Photography's Complete Photo Manual
Wedding Photography: A Guide to Posing
Northern Virginia Magazine
Washington Business Journal
Get Married Magazine
In His Own Words: Stories from the Extraordinary Life of Robert E. Simon Jr.
My photographs have also received numerous awards from the Wedding Photojournalist Association, including their prestigious gold medallion.
