My love for music lead me to another art form; photography.
I went from recording studios to photo studios and I haven’t looked back. While working on social media projects for Diddy and meeting celebrities left and right i figured it would be the perfect time to start doing photography. While artist portraits and club photography felt fun, the vanity soon wore off and i wanted to produce images that would be more meaningful.
Wedding photography created a happy medium for me. Being able to produce creative outputs during pressured situations is similar to trying to create a hit record. The platinum plaque is knowing that my client has taken my art and made it the centerpiece of their living room. Being able to capture a milestone event in two peoples lives that will forever be encapsulated into that artisan piece.
I never thought of wedding photography until my own wedding day. I went through the process of searching for the artist that fit my vision. There was extra pressure since this was my expertise and my fiancé was expecting me to make the best choice. After searching and interviewing several photographers for my own wedding , I knew that I wanted to become a photographer who filled the void and ease the frustrations and fears that many couples experience while searching for their perfect vendors. The limitations and rigidness of photographers I came across made me realize I needed to make myself an asset to people who wanted more than just a run of the mill photographer. My goal has always been to connect with the couples I am going to shoot and create options based on the uniqueness and needs of their weddings. Weddings are like fingerprints. No two are exactly alike.
Photography is my passion and I look at it as a sport. I am always conditioning to get better and get ready for game day. I’m inspired by other photographers (other athletes in my world) and motivated to capture the best shots to supersede expectation. I’m always looking to make my next shot better than my last.
My wife and I live in the suburbs of NY with our three wonderful children. I am a die hard Lakers fan that got to meet Kobe, Shaq and Fisher. I am also Yankees fan that believes in Judge and Stanton. I’ve picked up casual biking and recently got the chance to trek across the Golden Gate Bridge right before seeing Steph Curry at the Oracle. Photography has become my creative expression. You’re working hard to make the biggest day of your life a masterpiece and I’m the one that can make that vision possible.
