Born and raised in Eastern Kentucky, I thought I'd never get the chance to get out of that small town. The Appalachian area has unfortunately earned it's reputation in many ways, but the more I looked to escape it, the more it pulled me back home. Eventually, I learned to see why. There really is something special about the mountains and the slower way of life. It's amazing to now raise my 3 kids in the same hometown where I grew up.
Never did I imagine in my wildest dreams that photography would be part of God's plan for my life, even though I've always loved it. So, while I may be from a small town, my photography definitely isn't. I love producing world class, fashion-infused senior portraits, extremely athletic and intense sports portraits, and beautiful weddings, all while keeping the small town attitude that made me who I am.
My Faith in Jesus Christ is the sustaining force that drives me. I want my faith to be evident in my conversations and interactions with everyone I meet.
I have a beautiful wife and 3 amazing kids. My wife Leslie keeps our home grounded while I'm out chasing this photography dream. I really couldn't do it without her amazing support. Our kids make life an adventure everyday. Each one uniquely gifted and awesome in their own way, and I couldn't be more proud of each of them!
