When I'm not working, you can find me hitting live shows or adventuring with my wife and cat, Riesling. (I mean, check out our Christmas card.) Also a really big fan of playing & watching hockey (Go Sabres!!), bacon and colorful socks.

When I was growing up, my dad worked at Kodak and always had a camera in hand. That influence led to my love of the craft, and eventual experience in everything from editorial to event photography. 

About my work:

●   10+ years of experience shooting both on-location and in the studio
●   Use of off-camera lighting, which allows me to add a creative flair when natural light isn't quite enough
●   The majority of the weddings I shoot are in Western New York and the Finger Lakes areas, but I am available for destination weddings as well. (I've photographed in Jamaica, Mexico, Las Vegas, Bahamas and Cape Cod, to name a few.)

Wedding packages begin at $2,900
