The art of storytelling...

Nestled in the sleepy foothills of the Allegheny Mountains, near the renowned Chautauqua Institution- and a stone's throw from Buffalo, Rochester, Erie, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Toronto. Wedding, portraiture, and other forms of visual storytelling...

documentary wedding photographer


and upon you, peace...

I love weddings...

and I photograph virtually nothing else. Our region lends itself to no shortage of options for venues, and I've worked in water and sand, under great ancient oaks and blue azure skies, on rooftops, in brew pubs, on ski slopes, and in theatre mezzanines. Whatever your choice, consider it covered.

Some portraits succeed with only the slimmest of rays, and others find their mark from the dignity or drama the subject lends. And although every photographer has a 'style', portraits shouldn't be about the photographer - the style should reflect the subject just as much. Tell me what you want- what you see.  We'll find it together...

From September through June I am a full time photographic educator. Mixed with the wedding and portrait work it keeps me pretty busy.   However, I do arrange for private tutoring at different times throughout the year. 

Our hands-on sessions are $75 US per hour per person for up to three people.

Groups of more than three are discounted 30% ($50 US per person)
