(I'm the one with the camera!)
I started professional photography 11 years ago as a photojournalist at a local newspaper. I decided to start my own business 10 years ago after photographing my first wedding. I was fortunate enough to work as a photographer for Auburn University's Athletic Department where I traveled with the teams to NCAA Tournaments, SEC Championships and private events. I have been published internationally and all over the United States in newspapers such as USA Today (on the front page and in the Sports section), ESPN.com, Amsterdan Metro Magazine, Atlanta Journal Constitution, Salt Lake Tribune, Dallas Morning Star, Birmingham News, and more. I have also recieved several Associated Press Awards over the years. I truly enjoy telling stories with my camera and it has paid off. That photojournalistic approach is essential to my wedding and portrait photography, as well. I also enjoy experimenting with creative lighting to create dramatic and artistic images. I can't explain how great it makes me feel to walk into someone's home and see one of my images proudly displayed. It is a very personal thing to me to be able to capture a moment in time for someone and their family.
