I fell in love with photography at a young age when I'd beg my parents for one of those disposable cameras every time we stopped at a gas station. I took pictures of everything from flowers, my pets, the children I babysat to my older brothers playing baseball. After college I spent what little money I had on a DSLR camera, started taking pictures of anyone who'd let me and the next thing I know I'm booking two or three sessions a week! It's been a huge roller coaster ride of learning and I've enjoyed every minute of it.
I have been using photography as a creative outlet since 2013. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2016 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design, and have been employed as a full-time designer since. I am a travel enthusiast, so although I’m located in Mechanicsville, Iowa, I’m always up for a trip for your special day! I look forward to hearing from you and helping you capture your best pure moments!
I started photography during high school in 2004, and in 2006 I began freelancing. I also went to college for graphic design because I wanted to further my education in the field of photography. I was Epic Event's lead photographer until recently when my wife, Amanda, and I started running our photobooths to make more time for our growing family.
My entire life has revolved around music. I feel like music can have a huge impact on someone's life. There are songs that make you sad, songs that make you happy, and songs that just make you want to get out of your seat and move your body. I DJ not only because of my passion for music, but because I enjoy making everyone around me feel good within themselves. When I see people out on the dance floor, just having the time of their lives, I know that I have accomplished that goal. Epic Event's motto, "Creating Memories Forever" is what I strive for. Creating Memories Forever isn't just a picture, or video. It's a feeling, an emotion, a memory that will stick with you forever!
