My job is to tell stories.  To show you who are reading this what I saw on an immensely important day in people’s lives.

When first meeting Kristen & Brooks, it was in the little ole’ College Station in Texas with them sharing the story how they came to be over a few slices of gluten filled pizza.  Leaving the engagement shoot, I remember being so fired up from the love they shared together.

Before the wedding, I felt a pressure I normally do not experience before a wedding day.  A pressure to see their story as truthful as possible.  To show the love that was felt throughout.  I can only hope I did this day justice.

Kristen & Brooks – Keep being real guys, and lovely.

After spending the last 4 months in some incredibly wonderful places such as India, Turks and Caicos, Colorado, and many others I’ve dove head first into the editing cave to continue to create the art that I am incredibly blessed to be able to.  After countless nights until 4am, a good friend of mine Chris, asked Mel and I to tag along for a trip he planned in the Galveston Bay.  A sunset cruise on a catamaran.  Immediately, the answer usually is no due to our hectic schedules (plus 6 weeks before the wedding); but this time we both knew we needed the short breather to become inspired again.  Oh boy, was it worth.  Chris talked me into perusing an abandoned brewery in Galveston, Texas before jumping on the water.  I also took it upon myself to document Chris, and his beautiful girlfriend Caitlin throughout the day.  I couldn’t help it :).  See all the goodness below.  Also, to all the wonderful clients who I have had the pleasure to document your incredible day this year; thank you.  You are the best.

I truly believe that.  Without friends, and loved ones around us – then what are we living for?  Friends are to challenge us, inspire us, and to love us to just name a few.  Photography has been a vehicle for me to be able to meet some truly amazing creative humans.  Geoff Duncan out of Austin, Texas is one of those guys.  We met several years ago while I was attending a workshop in Austin for the ever so talented Jeff Newsom (aka. nicest man I’ve ever met).  He brought me along to a wedding in Savannah last year for Kate and Rob; and we had a hell of a time.  I couldn’t help it but turn the weekend into a portrait shoot.  Geoff recently was named one of Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars; and that’s just one accomplishment among many in his short life.  Geoff – keep that drive up to be better every single day.  Check his work out here.  You can also purchase the beautiful ONA Bag he is using here.
