Born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I have just recently moved to Alabama to start a new branch of my family's photography business. I entered into our fourth generation business when I was just seven years old. I shot my first wedding by myself when I was thirteen. Photography and print competition are in my blood, having literally grown up in the field while also attending print judging (before it was online) and participating in PPA for as long as I can remember. PPA has had a great influence in my life and has been a big role in refining me into the photographer I am today. I feel blessed to be able to say that I have received awards in both the image and album category at the GIA’s in the past and this year I have two bridal portraits in the top ten. Last year I was also asked to represent the USA in Australia and was fortunate to receive a silver medal in the wedding category to help contribute to Americas gold medal. I have never had to look hard for a teacher and am excited for the opportunity to give back to a community that has already given me so much. The best part about being a photographer is getting to work with people on the best day of their lives. I feel its easy for people to forget that. When I’m not behind the camera, I’m with my wife and three daughters enjoying our family life.
