I love Houston. But I haven't always lived here.
I left home at an early age to see the world. I was a photojournalist and my work has appeared in Time Magazine, The New York Times, The Washington Post and other publications. I had the honor of helping the investigative team at The Virginian-Pilot become Pulitzer finalists for a story we were working on about military contractors.
And while I loved photojournalism and telling people's stories, sadly I knew the days were numbered. I really felt the pinch of a drop in readership and interest. I moved back to my hometown of Houston, TX and looked for my next career move.
A friend recommended that I be his second photographer at a wedding, which I didn't even know was a thing. I had never thought about wedding photography, but I accommodated him and it opened my eyes to another world. I soon realized that I've been working on a skill set all my career that has primed me for wedding photography.
I gave myself a year in the new business venture I started for myself and realized that, yes, this was in fact the right choice. I found that clients loved my blend of photojournalism style along with magazine styled portraits.
And here I am today.
I know you'll love the look we achieve together. I'd love to talk to you about your wedding and how best to capture it. I look forward to hearing from you.
I used to have my own band, but I like wedding photography better.
