Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut
No, seriously, that's how I'm going to start fill this out. If you've made it this far, you've seen some of my work but you might still be asking yourself “Who is this guy and why should I care?” Well, here are four things about me that sum me up pretty well: * I'm an award-winning photographer, writer and designer who has been honored by the Rhode Island Press Association with more than 15 awards in the state's largest journalism awards competition. * With over 110 five-star ratings, I have been named one of New England's best wedding photographers by couples just like you and have won prestigious awards from the Knot (Hall of Fame Member & Best of Weddings Winner 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022) and WeddingWire (Couple's Choice Award winner 2016-2022). * I've been involved in journalism in Rhode Island for 17 years and, when I'm not out shooting weddings and engagement sessions for awesome couples, I work as a photographer/page designer for the Independent Newspaper. * In my free time, I love nothing more than laying down on my couch and watching Netflix. Honestly. If left unchecked, I'll watch nine episodes of Supernatural or binge-watch the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (Especially Wandavision) before I even know what hit me. Why does any of this matter? Well, if you're here looking for a wedding photographer, you need to find someone you like and someone you can work with. You need to find someone that makes you relax and smile on the most stressful day of your life. You need to find someone that will go above and beyond for you and treat you as more than just another paycheck or another folder of files on a hard drive. That's where I come in. I've been shooting photos professionally for over a decade and, in that time, I've learned the most important thing that I can do to get the best results possible is establish a real relationship with my clients that goes far beyond the typical photographer-photographee (Is that even a word?) roles. Your day is about you, not about anyone else, and I aim to tell your story, on your terms and within your budget. Yes, I mentioned the word budget and, no, it wasn't a mistake. In fact, it's one of the main reasons I started shooting weddings. In 2010 when my wife and I were planning on getting married, we couldn't find a quality photographer who would show up to our big day for less than $3,000 (And that didn't even include the rights to our photos!) and I just knew there had to be a simpler way for couples like us to get high-quality photography at a price they could afford. And that's why I shoot weddings. That's literally the extent of my pitch. I love talking to people. I love telling stories. I want to tell yours.
