Basic human nature compels us to take an interest in photography. How can we understand the passage of time, the reality of the past, and of right now, without it?

I cannot think of any other medium that so greatly encompasses preservation, appreciation, gratitude, and documentation the way that photography does.

Photographs have power. They can transport you to another time, they can conjure a once vivid memory after it fades, they can show you what love looks like and at the very least, they can record a moment or an image of something you never want to forget.

The magnitude of family photography is what interests me. I strive to make images that are real, raw, and emotive. They are artistic and classic and genuine and in a few years, or in many years, they will be waiting for you when you want to recall the memories that you are making right now.

I have been photographing weddings and families professionally for over 13 years in Philadelphia, New York, and surrounding areas. I've learned that it's not about being in the right place at the right time, it's about being open to everything that is happening around me.
