I'm a wedding photographer based out of Arizona but my passport has stamps all over the world at places I have been able to travel to and shoot. When I am not shooting weddings I love to teach other photographers through a series of workshops I have taught in Australia, Cancun, and numerous other locations. My passion is helping build the photography community so we all can encourage one another and grow together. Been married 12 years and together my wife and I have 5 kids. Yep 5!
