About our studio

Who we are and our philosophy

This is where I’m supposed to tell you about how cool I am.

But to be honest with you I’m kind of a nerd. Everyday I balance being a Christian, Husband, Step Dad, Dad, Business Owner, Employee, Photographer, and generally Friendly guy. Keeping all those in balance keeps me busy enough to even worry about whether I’m cool. I was never one of the “cool kids” growing up, so I don’t even try acting like I’m any of those today. I love math and numbers, video games, cars and gadgets. I love to go out and have fun when I can, but you’ll usually find me at home with my family a lot more. I love being a girl dad. I like a good beer, my favorite sport is hockey. I’m almost always listening to music. I love watching movies, and a solid TV series. Photography is just what I love to do. I’ve been doing it since I was a kid, way back when you would run out of film and flash bulbs. Out of all the things I “grew out of” this is the one thing in my life that has always “grown with me”. It’s part of who I am, It’s how I see the world. I’ve always had that need to be creative, and this is best way I know how. It became something I refuse to live without everyday, part of my life is dedicated in one way shape or form to being a better photographer than I was the day before.

Design is Everything

I was born in Charlotte and grew up in the surrounding town of Mt. Holly, so I am native to this area. I am married to my best friend and have two wonderful daughters, a 14 yr old and a 1 yr old. I never thought I would have kids 13 years apart, but it works for us. My kids adore each other and we adore them. I love the one or two days of snow Charlotte gets a year, but other than that, give me flip flops and warm weather. I probably should have been born in a state with palm trees. Spring and summer are my favorite seasons! I’m learning to enjoy fall, but winter is still last on my list. I do know that I have my dork moments. I don’t think I’m as much of a dork as my husband (heehee), but I’m not too far behind. I love all things funny. Comedies are my favorite viewing pleasure. I watch way too many youtube and Facebook videos. Give me a video with laughing babies, silly animal tricks or a dancing granny and I am entertained. Comedies lead to laughing and fun, and laughter is my favorite emotion. I also love playing board games with my family and friends. Some of my best memories are nights staying up laughing and playing fun games like Apples to Apples and Cranium. Being a girl though, I do love beautiful things. Seeing beauty through a lens and being able to capture it forever is magic to me. Wedding days are beautiful days all around. There’s pretty dresses, flowers and decor with smiling and happy people. Even the smallest and simplest of weddings have a wide variety of beauty, smiles and fun!
