Owner

As the lead photographer behind Gold & Elm Weddings, I capture moments and experiences with meaning and emotion. I’m not about staged moments or capturing people with their camera personas on as soon as they see my camera. I want couples to look back at their photos and remember what they were thinking and how they were feeling.

I truly love capturing beautiful moments filled with natural light, beautiful sunsets and natural backdrops that really frame a couple experiencing the best day of their life together.

Engagements and weddings are some of the happiest days of our lives, and when I can really catch the raw and serene side of people, it reminds me of how much I love my job and how thankful I am to be able to give my clients tangible happy memories.

Before I picked up photography in a professional capacity, I worked as a palliative care nurse, offering emotional support and providing relief for my patients. In both my career as a nurse and now as a photographer, I experience the biggest moments of people’s lives, and it’s an honor to be there for them.

When I’m not behind the camera, I can be found chasing my baby twins around the house! Me and my wife are extremely blessed to have them in our lives, and becoming a dad has been a surreal and beautiful experience.
