Meet my wife, Danielle,
and our beautiful boys.

(it's what the cool kids do)

This blog is written by a tired father of two little boys who spends more time than he would like wandering the house saying things like, "Leave my socks alone!" But when he's coherent he writes about pizza, life in Maui, and his exciting career as a wedding and portrait photographer...

Rain drops were trickling on my windshield as I drove to the wedding site. One of the first things the mother of the groom said to me was, “Pray it doesn’t rain any harder.” Normally a little rain wouldn’t be a bother—the wedding ceremony would just be moved inside the church or the reception hall, […]

I was crouched down in the water, soaked up to my waist and trying not to get my camera wet. Working quickly was important because the sun was setting. At Willoughby Lake, in northern Vermont, I was working about fifty feet from the road and drawing quite a few second glances from people driving by. […]

GRANT Staff Writer It may not payoff the very next day, but pictures of your wedding will become priceless souvenirs that you’ll only regret if you don’t get them.

Now the moment where your groom gets to see you has come, and it deserves to be unforgettable. Tradition has dictated that this moment be […]

Gina and Jef were two of the most creative and energetic people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. If I could think of one word to describe their wedding, it would be “rustic-chic.” Beauty and country merged into one high-end, classy looking affair.

My wife and I made a parody rap video in 2013 that landed us on national TV! We got an all-expenses paid trip to New York City and a spot on Katie Couric's daytime talk show where we won $594. The video at right is a short excerpt of our appearance on Katie's show.
