About Me 


 Hi, You can call me Pirate!  Everyone does.

I've had the memorable nickname for 20 years now.

Bet you won't forget me.  (Wink)

 Your wedding day is all about you - and my photographs will reflect that.  I’m passionate about capturing the moments or that true love that shines through your special day.  It’s why I became a professional Photographer. With my skills and expertise, I'll provide you with a collection of images that help bring your event to life again and again.

 I started my photography career at Eckerd Drug Store, developing film in 2002.  In 2004, I started at Walt Disney World where I became a part of the Disney Photopass team. I worked there for the next 9 years doing everything: from working at all the themeparks and waterparks, worked as around the World Showcase Epcot photographer, performed quality assurance, and was Royal Photographer at the Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo-Boutique.

 I graduated in 2019 from South Carolina's Greenville Technical College with a degree in Visual Arts with Photography.  You might have seen me around the Greater Greenville area in South Carolina at Clemson University, Euphoria, the YMCA sports events and local Dance Studios.

 I've had the pleasure to work with Portrait EFX, FamZing Studios, Noveli Wedding Photography, Marshall Graham Photography, DreamShots Photography & Films, Jessica Shelton Photography, world famous Wedding Photographer Jerry Ghionis, and Headshot Photographer Peter Hurley's Headshot Crew. 

 Today, in my world of photography, I am an award-winning photographer.  Over the years, my lens has witnessed the magic of more than 30 weddings annually - each one a unique tapestry of love, joy, and celebration. It is a privilege to be entrusted with immortalizing these precious memories for couples and their families. Through my lens, I strive to document the raw emotions, intricate details, and fleeting moments that make each wedding a truly extraordinary event.

 My love for photography extends beyond weddings. I have had the privilege of being featured in numerous magazines, art galleries and museums, where I showcase my artistic vision and stories through visual narratives. The power of an image to evoke emotions and spark conversations never ceases to amaze me, and I am humbled by the opportunity to contribute to the rich tapestry of the art world.


 Beyond my professional endeavors, I am deeply committed to giving back to the community that has nurtured my passion. I actively engage in various charitable events, lending my skills and expertise to support causes close to my heart. It brings me immense joy to use my photography as a tool for raising awareness and making a positive impact in the world.


 One aspect of my journey that brings me great fulfillment is teaching. I am a firm believer in the transformative power of education, and I find tremendous joy in sharing my knowledge and experiences with aspiring photographers. Whether it's imparting camera fundamentals to budding talents or exploring alternative developing processing methods, I am dedicated to nurturing the creative spirit in others. There is something magical about witnessing the spark of inspiration in a student's eyes, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be a guide on their photographic journey.  Through this platform, I aim to inspire and connect with fellow photography enthusiasts, art aficionados, and anyone with a love for the craft. I invite you to explore my portfolio, dive into the stories behind each image, and join me on this adventure of capturing the essence of life through the lens.

 There is nothing I love more than capturing the special moments that you will cherish forever. This is what inspired me to become a dedicated Photographer.  Check out my site and learn how I can help you capture the best day of your life.
