I have been working professionally as photographer in DFW metroplex for over 16 years and have a long list of satisfied clients. I believe, there is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. And for that everybody deserves a great event with lasting memories, no matter what your budget is, so we offer best rates for various needs. My style can be characterized as fresh, upbeat and artistic; I love being creative and having fun while making sure that we don't miss a single moment of your very special day. Reliable, experienced and professional.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Passion, creativity and high energy define my style. I will capture every precious moment and be there with you throughout your special day. Connecting with my clients is of great importance to me to establish a relaxed, personal atmosphere. Photography is personal. In our first meeting we will talk about your ideas and wishes for your event shoot. You will get the chance to meet me, see more examples of my work, and ask me any questions.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been trained since there was no digital world in Photography. I got my first Nikon and Olympus manual SLRs from London, and since then never stopped learning. Now after decades, whenever I hold a camera, I still feel like a kid in a candy store.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
It was always there- the instinct for finding and capturing the small details and moments. There is nothing more gratifying than being the person that gets to capture the joy and the people on such momentous occasions. It doesn't get much more special than that!
What types of customers have you worked with?
As many types as there are people in this world. Working with me is organic and effortless. Light, texture, dimension, mood, energy, emotion, composition, romance, and most importantly love are the elements that I'll use to create your inspiring and timeless photos.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask as many questions as you can think of. Also show the photographer some pictures that you really like. It helps me to customize my style and post-processing for that kind of results. And with that, I can create beautiful visual storytelling that is singular for you.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Photography is not about the cameras, lenses, or equipment. You can ask, and sure these things are important in helping to get the images but they don't make great pictures. People make great pictures and our images capture the human experience. They capture the raw emotion, the smile, the laughs, the tears, the fierce love between two people, the look in a person's eyes. They say life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away. I capture those moments.
