I was fifteen when my father gave me my first 35mm film camera, an Olympus OM10. It accompanied me through high school yearbook assignments, through college at NYU where I spent countless days in the darkroom, and through quite a few adventures in between. It was during this time that I fell in love with documenting life. I captured familiar scenes around my Greenwich Village neighborhood, a summer of train-hopping across Europe, and just about everyone in my life who was important to me. Those early images still take me back to the spark I felt when I first picked up a camera.
It's the same feeling I get every time I shoot a wedding. Because a wedding is an adventure, really - a new, exciting, inspiring moment in a person's life, which, despite all the planning, is filled with surprises. It's in those small (and sometimes big!) unexpected moments that the magic happens. Being invited to capture them is a gift.
If my work stirs something in you or if my images simply make you smile, then please say hello. I would love to tell your story.
I'm based in New York City, but will happily travel anywhere in the world! I've shot weddings in the United States, Central America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.
