The Intangibles

Each assignment brought a new challenge, whether it was a mundane press conference, a creative portrait of a business owner, or an action-packed San Diego Padres game.

This environment - diligent preparation combined with anticipation of unexpected moments - was the perfect training ground for me to tell the story of your wedding.

My love for telling stories through photos dates back to my time as a photojournalist for a daily paper
