Hello I am John.
It was my first year in college when I knew it had to be photography...nothing else was nearly as interesting. I dove in head first, committed early, and pursued no other option. After all this time I'm lucky to be involved in an art that continues to evolve. I truly freaking love it; long time.
I've been an independent full time photographer of 15 pixel-intensive years now. With a primary focus on weddings, my greatest strength as an artist lies in the ability to quickly interpret a scene, communicate compelling ideas to my clients, and efficiently execute those ideas into a series of strong images. And I am very consistent.
Here's what real life people have had to say about working with me; I swear, I didn't even have to pay them to say these things. Sweet.
When I'm not behind the camera I'm usually doing exciting regular stuff like sharing cat memes with my wife, engaging in deep conversations with the dog, or having heated debates with my toddler about which color crayon has the best flavor. It's blue. Clearly.
I am a man of frustrating detail. I personally photograph, produce, and fulfill every aspect of my projects in-house, as that yields the proper control required to hit a certain quality. And when I say in-house I mean like, literally, at home. Sometimes in my underwear. Ok fine, all the time. And because I commit f̶o̶r̶e̶v̶e̶r̶,̶ ̶w̶a̶a̶a̶y̶ ̶t̶o̶o̶ ̶m̶u̶c̶h̶,̶ ̶o̶b̶s̶e̶s̶s̶i̶v̶e̶l̶y̶-̶d̶r̶i̶v̶e̶n̶ ̶l̶a̶t̶e̶ ̶n̶i̶g̶h̶t̶s̶ just the right amount of attention towards making you, my clients, look ludicrously good...I won't accept more than 10 wedding commissions a year (with a max of 1 per month) on top of a limited series of Legacy and Engagement sessions.
Ultra low volume. Crazy clean aesthetic. Hot.
If the idea of commissioning me to be creative on your behalf excites you and you're able to picture yourselves as a part of my portfolio, please reach out! I like working with people who value ideas and what may come of them and start all my projects with the simple phrase:
"wouldn't it be cool if we fill in the blank ."
Once we get the ball rolling you can expect some honest ideas from me on how we can best capture what may be your most treasured moments, before they've come and gone.
