ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
Hi! Thanks so much for stopping by my website. I am a photographer based in Ansonia, Ohio.
As you can tell by my portfolio, I enjoy clean and clear images and I would love to capture some memories for you. I strive to make you as comfortable in front of the camera as possible. I focus on natural light photography and using the light to compliment the image. I enjoy working with families and capturing them in a natural environment.
Although my main focus is natural light, I do use studio lighting for my newborn sessions, cake smashes and when requested by my clients.
I am a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography where I completed their course in Professional Photography. I've always had a camera in my hand. My pink Kodak 35mm film camera was finally retired after many years of service and that was before I was a teenager. I have a tub full of 4x6 prints that I used my weekly allowance to develop.
When I switched to DSLR cameras I chose Canon because I was more familiar with that brand. I use high end camera bodies and professional lenses to preserve your memories. For those of you who are "gear nerds" my main camera is a Canon 5d Mark III and I usually pair that with a Canon 70-200mm 2.8L lens or if I am working with just one subject I might use the Canon 85mm 1.8 lens.
A special love of mine is capturing wedding celebrations. Photography may likely be the most important and the most expensive investment in your wedding budget but I assure you it is well worth it. It is not unusual for someone to express their disbelief at the expense of wedding photography. It was the most expensive budget item in my own wedding but I am so happy that I chose to invest in capturing the memories of one of the best days of my life. I would love to sit down and chat with you about your special day. I consider it an honor to photograph a wedding as I realize the unique responsibility I have to preserve those moments for you.
I look forward to hearing from you!
