about me

 

Hello! I'm Dan,  I'm a hopeless romantic, married to my high school sweetheart, and I'm the proudest dad to my son Max.

I love my job. Even after photographing more than 80 weddings, I still get excited to see a groom see his bride for the first time, I tear up during ceremonies, and I can't think of anything more beautiful than seeing a whole community of family and friends come together to witness the intense love of two people committing their whole lives to one another. And being trusted to create a time capsule of memories from such momentous occasions is such a tremendous privilege.

My formal training in fine art laid a solid foundation for my understanding of light, form and composition, and I definitely bring those skills into my work as a photographer. But unlike painting, my camera allows me to couple my classical training with a documentary or photojournalistic approach. I like to let moments unfold and to be there behind the scenes to capture the organic connection between people, the emotion of an event, the joy of a celebration, in an artistic way.

The only thing I like better than a wedding is a destination, and I'm so grateful for the opportunities I've had to photograph people all over the world. You can see more of my wedding and destination work in my Portfolio and in my Featured galleries, as well as on The Knot and Junebug Weddings. 

I'd love to meet you and hear your story, so feel free to send me a message through my Contact page, and I hope to talk to you soon!
