I'm Licensed and insured photographer and Part 107 drone licensed in based in Beaufort SC. My business is part-time, usually from Friday to Sunday, but will do it during the week on occasion.
My specialties: Wedding/engagements, outdoor family/single portraits, pet, astrophotography, landscape... eh just a wide variety of photography :). I try not to narrow down what I can do and/or excel in. My belief is photography is an Art and is expressed through the lens. A photo is a story and its how to tell it, so many elements come into play from the setting in the camera, to lighting, added effects and post production....my desire is to make you stop and absorb all facets to a image. I also have advanced skills in photo editing/retouching/manipulations.
A little about me: Married to my beautiful wife Katie, we have 3 dogs that are children to us, we love them very dearly.
My inspiration: NATURE :) I love to be out in the world, especially away from all the noises and craziness, to just absorb the beauty and breathe the fresh air. Nature to me is my reset button, its drives to step back, to relax and lets my mind expand. I always come out refreshed and ready to go.
Favorite styles: My consistent style is how it looks naturally for clients, but can create any look you desired. I truly love Moody/expressive and really anything uniquely creative, you will find me sometimes doing photography with light, fire, sparks, smoke, etc....I don't believe photographs need to be plain, simple and basic. Photographers are artists and its the tools that you use to create that makes you unique. Ultimately want to create photos you stop to admire and ones you're drawn into.
What you can expect from me: Professionalism, fun and just all around a great time. I lead my business with my heart and I try to do everything the right way, Communication and fast responsiveness I hold high. I will always go above and beyond. You don't just get a photographer, you get a friend and a person that will help you out along the way. Also If I can't schedule a session with you with a particular date, I can always recommend another great local photographer.
My Editing: I truly believe photos are individual artistic expressions, that why I will literally go through every photo I took, sort and I personally edit them. I normally don't do a preset (a color profile/adjustments made for a particular look), believe a good base is creating the environment for the photo and when outdoors like to keep the true look, not blown out or muted, remembering just as you experienced it. In the current market, you will find photographers that don't edit their own work anymore, while this saves a lot of time! Me personally I care about quality and I have to know they are processed to perfection by my own eye.
Plus you will receive your photos back lightning fast (but I don't skimp, I spend a lot of time on them, ask my wife lol sometimes I won't even go to sleep :) ), I literally schedule my edits for your shoot right after, for typical family shoot its 1-2 days after, for weddings usually 1-2 week after.... but you can always stop into to your gallery to see progress, because as I finish a edit, I upload it into it.
Cameras: primary Nikon z6ii, secondary Nikon d800.
Off camera lighting: Godox ad400pro, ad600pro and v860iii's
Favorite lenses: 20,45,85mm 1.8, 24-70mm 2.8 ... Celestron 8" 1000mm reflector :)
