Behind the Camera

I'm going to write this about me. I promise not to make it sound like someome else wrote this.


I will start with my personal life. I'm a devoted single father of the coolest 13 year old in the world. Jacob and I enjoy model trains, Legos, playing Wii. We take a couple of weeks every June for a Father/Son trip that Jacob gets to plan. Just planned next year and we will be heading on a Disney Cruise. I'm an avid sports fan and especially baseball. I have a personal goal to visit every Major League Baseball stadium. I'm about 1/2 way there.


I got my start in photography as a Party Pic guy at the University of Kansas. From the Party Pic world, I then began traveling the country photographing Sorority Composites on major campuses from Syracuse and Idaho to Arkansas and all throughout Texas. Photography and traveling is what inspires me.


I bring my fine eye for detail and strong technical skills to the world of photography. From weddings to portraits, my goal is to capture the memories and moments that tell your story.


By listening to my clients and helping them figure out their needs, I make sure that I get the shots that matter. I will always arrive fully prepared and bring an energy with me that is contagious. My goal is to get to know each wedding couple and become friends with them. I want each wedding to become a relationship instead of just another couple. I am a problem solver who stays calm under any situation and is a real professional.


My images are timeless. They convey genuineness and a true emotion. I love what I do and it shows.


I am based out of Kansas City and available for travel anywhere in the US.

Photography is Magic. It is Power. It is the ability to stop the World's spinning and preserve the beauty of a moment that would have otherwise been lost in time. Your wedding day only lasts a few breaths: Through photography, it is....immortalized.


Thanks to Lacey Whitmer for providing the images on the "Behind the Camera" section.
