This year I was absolutely honored to receive several awards including the PPW Wedding Photographer of The Year. I’ve been working hard towards getting my Masters with the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and entering print competition is part of the program. It’s been one of the most amazing/frustrating/mind-blowing experiences I’ve ever had as a photographer. I can’t thank my mentors enough for all their help the last two years.


Here’s my official press release;
