Houston photojournalistic wedding photography- modern, classy, & high fashion

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Please enjoy your look around and visit the appropriate pages to learn more about my style, pricing, and to see more of my work.  I look forward to working with you!



I'm a journalistic photographer who uses natural light and advanced techniques of off camera lighting to capture romantic and classy images, whether they be candid or posed.  I like creating dramatic photos that tell your story with my stylized interpretation.  These high fashion, custom edited images are the ones most likely to end up as enlargements displayed in your home. 

Not to worry, I will include the more traditional/ formal poses where you are looking at the camera as well.  I bring a fun and fresh approach to taking your pictures and will be guiding you through the process to make sure we document the real you.  I realize that everyone has a uniquely different vision for their photos so I am always sensitive to that.    Your wedding. Your story. Your photographer.


Every good story needs the details and you've spent much time in planning and picking them out.  It's my job to capture your day with all of it's pieces big and small, so that when you look back on this day you can relive each memory as if you were there again. I take just as much pride in the small things and will be creative but gentle with yours.   There is certainly an art to this and at any given wedding you might find me hoisting your dress up into position or meticulously arranging your rings for the perfect shot.   Each new wedding I am blessed to be a part of still excites me today.  I am inspired by the uniqueness of your story and its possibilities! 


This is a digital age and people want to be able to share their photos with family and friends through email, Facebook and Instagram.  Each package comes with custom edited high-resolution digital images available to you in an easy-to-use online gallery.  Downloading all your photos can be done with a click of the mouse and are easily accessible on any computer, mobile device, or tablet.  You will also have a copyright release to print and share your images however you wish!  Printing can be done anywhere you choose but you also have the option to order professional quality prints directly from the gallery at a very affordable price.
