this is us

You might be wondering how a Brit is living here in San Antonio, Texas. My wife and I met on a cruise ship while we were working in different departments. And so, we dated back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean and decided that I would immigrate to the Alamo City in 2006. Fast forward to today; we have two beautiful daughters, two dogs and a cat.
Since my early teens, I've always had an interest in the arts. I drew and painted with an endless supply of joy and sketchbooks, picking up my first serious camera and staying hooked.

I spent an unhealthy amount of time in darkrooms, developing rolls of film and dragging prints through chemicals. Learning from amazing mentors, over time, I've refined my craft heavily influenced by photojournalism.
In the U.K., I was a news photographer covering local stories and sports, managed a studio, and traveled the world extensively in my twenties.
When I arrived in the U.S.A., I continued my photographic career shooting model portfolios and headshots. Realizing this wasn't the perfect fit, I started shooting a few weddings, became hooked on the decisive moments and the emotional resonance. Storytelling from the heart was it.
Shooting around 20-25 weddings a year, I capture weddings in San Antonio, Houston, Austin, New York, L.A., and destination weddings.
