Born in New Orleans, LA but raised in Marietta, GA near Atlanta. I dedicated 5 year to serving our country's finest United States Marine Corps after graduating. After I completed my service I began working for our Marines in a way nearly as good as serving. I was a government contractor protecting our service members with systems that simply kept them safe while conducting operations in foreign locations such as Afghanistan and Iraq for nearly 6 years. In 2010 I met my amazing wife Shawna in Afghanistan, of all places, which is what brought me to the charming city of Tupelo, MS. We had our fist son Daryn on December 22nd, 2012 and look forward to our growth as a family and in this community.
A really good friend of mine introduced me to the world of photography while we were in Afghanistan 3 years ago and I've been in love ever since and I've found passion in doing so, more than I have with anything else I've ever done. Landscapes and Portraiture are my two favorite types of photography but I literally enjoy all types of photography. There is one thing I think of when it comes to photography and it is the level quality of what is received after a shoot done by professional photographer and it should be stunning; I would expect nothing less if I hired a photographer to shoot my family, myself, my business for an ad, or whatever the case. We have experienced that bad photographer on one of the biggest days of our life, our wedding, and let me tell you, my wife and I were utterly displeased with what we received. We should have had one of our fathers take pictures with their phones or a simple point and shoot camera; they were that bad and to this day all we have is 3 boxes of 4x6 prints and they do no justice to our wedding or the location (USVI St. John, REALLY!!). That being said and understanding that horrible feeling on a personal level I vowed that as a photographer I will go above and beyond to deliver quality results that are to be expected when hiring a Photographer.
