Hi! I was born in Houma, Louisiana on May 29th, 1986. (Houma is roughly 60 miles south of New Orleans.)
I share this birthday with my brother in law and my wife’s best friend. I studied Visual Communications at Delgado and met my wife during this time. Ali and I are newly married, our wedding date was April 8th, 2017. I proposed at 10 am on a family vacation to Gatlinburg, Tennessee! She thought I was setting up my camera for a group photo, but actually, it was to record a timelapse of my proposal.
On a day off I like to walk around New Orleans. Specifically, the Mid-City area. My two favorite coffee shops are The Station in Mid-City and Hi-Volt in the Lower Garden District. My drink of choice is a double espresso with a little vanilla.
In my 10+ years, I have photographed more than 300 weddings. Excited to be a part of so many bride and groom's big day, my place in the New Orleans area was a natural fit. Grateful for the incredible couples I have worked with, I make sure that couples traveling to New Orleans for their destination wedding leave with beautiful images that they can treasure for a lifetime. 

Killing the photo poses! And yes, that is my OG gameboy on my lap!
