My story as a photographer starts in the late 90’s with a few simple photography lessons and a day at the San Xavier Mission south of Tucson with my grandfather.
Photography remained more of a hobby while I pursued a ministerial education. As I approached graduation, photography begun to pull at my interests and I soon decided to blend my ministerial calling with a career as an artist. Weddings then became such an important part of how I’ve learned to communicate through photographs. I developed a strong sense of timing and a love of light and shadows that makes my work artistic and photojournalistic.
I take my greatest inspiration from the people I photograph. It's their vibrance and elegance that make these images unique and beautiful.
I've always felt my greatest strength is observing people and their natural sophistication, strength, and, at times, even spunk. Don't worry if you think you don't look good in front of a camera because I'm not going to make you say cheese. All you have to do is show up and be yourself!
