Press & Teaching

Education :

I started photography classes my sophomore year of high school then went to Texas State University to receive a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts. For 5 years I shot film exclusively, predominantly with a Canon AE-1 (which you can find fondly tattooed on my left wrist). I learned a lot about developing, composing, & finding the artist within but they don’t teach students  how to sustain as a photographer in the real world. So I was a 20 year old recent graduate with an art degree in 2008 without a clue as to what I was doing when a random wedding photography gig popped up through a friend of a friend. I fell in love. I have been a full time wedding photographer for over 7 years now and have shot almost 300 weddings (as a primary & second). Before I became a full time photographer I had aspirations of teaching photography in the darkroom on a college level.
