Influenced by a background in photojournalism, I strive to not only make beautiful and creative photographs of your family, but photos that capture the real emotion, candid moments, and unique personalities. After graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology in 2006 with a degree in Photojournalism, I spent six years as a newspaper photojournalist in New York and Nebraska, before moving back to my home state of Vermont where my wife and I have been photographing weddings and families since 2012.
