I am a high-energy, smitten husband to my lovely, bookish, and supportive wife Rachel. We have one incredible daughter, Alice, with twins (a boy and a girl) on the way. We are spreading our roots in a small suburb just outside Philadelphia. We love our 100 year old home and all its quirks, hosting a good party, the beach, reading, and eating at Olive Garden way too often.
I love the color combination blue and yellow, running/biking, fresh vegetarian food, a good fitting pair of jeans, and all things Harry Potter. (My wife and I even planned our honeymoon around the Harry Potter world at Universal Studios.) My brain runs at 1,000 miles an hour. I have a new-found enjoyment of writing (I didn’t say I’m any good at it though).
I am also, obviously, a wedding photographer with over 200 weddings under my belt. I’m a co-host of the Put A Ring On it Podcast, an anti-boring wedding planning podcast. I love my job, and the greatest pleasure in it comes from the excitement on my clients’ faces when they hold their wedding album or see their pictures displayed in their home for the first time.
I photograph weddings regularly throughout Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley, with the occasional trip to New York City, and New Jersey. I’m listed in the Top 100 Photographers in the World by the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) and I’ve received awards from Fearless Photographers, ISPWP, and the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA).

We love your work, how do we book you for our wedding?
Easy! Just shoot me an email from the contact page and we will set up a time to get together! I'd love to discover a little about the two of you and see if we're a good fit! Once we make everything official by signing my agreement and paying the deposit, you can count me to be your trusted advisor throughout your wedding planning process and create meaningful photographs of you and your families that you will only enjoy more as time goes on!
How do you describe your approach to wedding photography?
I consider myself a biographer on the wedding day. This is a journey of discovery you. I want to see who my couples are together—what they see in each other that nobody else does—and I want to get to know them individually. My goal is to know the couple so well by the time their wedding day arrives that I can photograph the bride as the groom sees her, and capture the groom in the way the bride sees him. My primary goal is to capture your wedding day exactly as it unfolds naturally. While I take a very active approach to helping my couples plan their wedding day, I do my best to blend in an interfere as little as possible. Because after all, those quick, in-between candid moments are the ones you will want to remember years from now. When it comes time for portraits, I will offer direction and help pose you to create images that will delight and surprise you for years to come!
Are you a member of any professional organizations?
What's the deal with a second photographer?
There’s a ton of benefits for both large and intimate weddings. The obvious benefits are that there’s multiple angles throughout the day and both getting ready mornings are covered. The not so obvious benefit is that an additional photographer allows me to be more creative. Going through the wedding day with an additional photographers is like knowing someone always has my back to get the “safe” photo while I’m trying to create a photo that will surprise and delight you.
We'd love to meet you but we don't live near Philadelphia. Is there an alternative?
I've had many first meetings over Skype and FaceTime. Recently, one of my couples was broadcasting from Colorado, so all of our meetings happened when they got home from work at 10pm my time! Regardless of the medium in which we connect, it all comes back to trust comfort on your wedding day. That is built through “in-person” communication and is where the best photographs are made.
Should I give you a shot list?
If you look through an entire wedding gallery that I've photographed, you'll notice that my coverage is very thorough. You'll see photos of all the details - the dress, jewelry, shoes, flowers, and reception decor, as well as special people and groups. There's no need to give me a shot list. The only list I will request is one for all your family formals.
Are you insured?
Most definitely yes. This is important not only because many venues require it, but also for peace of mind.
How far do you travel and do you do destination weddings?
Weddings have taken me to three countries, one across the big pond, and all throughout the United States! Primarily based in Philadelphia for weddings, a destination for me is considered anywhere outside of my normal service area of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York. Below is a list of a bunch of places I've photographed! So, whether you’re wondering if I will travel to you, or if you’re traveling for your wedding, I’d love tell your story just like you were home.
