I'm a native of Southern California, but I dream of returning to the Kazakhstani Steppe. That's where I met my wife. I had spent a few years there teaching, and I knew she would be my life-partner when I saw how kind she was to those who could do nothing for her. I hope you get a chance to meet her.
Our wedding in 2008 gave me a new perspective on being a wedding photographer. I feel like my heart grew two sizes that day. I suddenly had the ability to not just be at the wedding, but to feel the wedding. I realized that as a your photographer, I'm not just a vendor, I'm also a guest with extra responsibilities. I don't avoid your other guests, I interact with them, I crack jokes, and I share in the joy you are all basking in that day. If you want a photographer who lightens the mood, can deal with even the craziest of families, while never compromising quality, please contact me. We may be perfect for each other.
