A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of creating senior photos for Chad. A good family friend connected Chad and his family with me when they were disheartened by the senior photos they'd received from the school's senior photo photographer.

Shortly after moving back to our home in Virginia Beach, my brother-in-law Brian mentioned needing some photos; I of course was more than happy to help. We choose a day which worked for both our schedules, and a location not to far from the house.

Recently my family and I spent the afternoon with my friend Jackie and her family at Seaport Village in downtown San Diego, CA. Jackie had asked me to photograph her daughter and family, and she'd chosen the location for it's diversity. I took along my wife and son, and together we had an amazing afternoon creating photos for Jackie and her family.
A few months ago I had the distinct pleasure and honor to photograph Olivia and Zack's wedding in Heather Glen, Ohio. Now that they've had a chance to enjoy their photos, I can take the opportunity to share some of my favorites with you.
Olivia, my wife's cousin, reached out to me about 9 months before the wedding asking if I would be willing to be their photographer as their normal go-to family photographer didn't do weddings. We were going to attend the wedding anyway, and I thought that it was a great idea. I quickly said "yes", and my wife stepped up to be my second shooter for the da
