People are always more important

I believe that people are the most important things on this Earth. I believe that every person and every couple has a story that deserves to be told, and deserves to be told beautifully. Capturing the love and joy of a couple is truly an honor, and that is why I am a wedding photographer! My inspiration comes from your story and a passion to bring it to life.  Most photographers take pictures, but I tell stories in a way that is uniquely "you"! My goal as a wedding photographer is to interact and get to know the people I am photographing and create images that will serve as an every day reminder of WHO they love and WHY they love them!

I live by the motto of "Provide immense value to everyone you interact with"

What I can offer you is a unique and imaginative way to tell your story.  

Like Katelyn and Jaron, who's wedding day served as an opportunity for their entire family to be together for the first time in over 25 years.

Like Noah and Chloe, who perform in a band together and decided that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with each other on stage at the end of their performance. 

Regardless of who you are, I am passionate about learning about you and your story and finding a way to tell it that is truly unique to you!  I would love to meet you and talk more about your big day!

My husband and I are so thankful for Peter - for his talent for sure! It is obvious in his work and the way he talks that he knows much about photography and how to tell a story through quality photos.. But also - we are very thankful for his kindness, patience, and great organization. He took beautiful pictures for our wedding, but he also created for us an unbelievable experience! He met with us prior to the big day and communicated with us frequently up until the wedding, which I think is a huge thing to note because I am sure that I’m not the only bride who could use a little help with all the organizing on the big day! Peter did that. He gave me peace of mind from day one, and I would SO recommend him to anyone. One thing that I thought was really special was the way he surprised us with a few “gifts” (I won’t spoil it) throughout working with him. We enjoyed his thoughtfulness. My friends and family were also impressed that he managed to memorize everyone’s names - the family and wedding party I mean. He is just so great! So thankful for this experience.

Peter is such an incredible photographer with a natural gift. He has such a kind spirit and made both me and my fiancé feel so comfortable during our engagements. We knew from the moment he captured the proposal that we would want him to be there to capture our big day in May of 2018. His talent and abilities are far above anything we could have ever asked for in our engagement and proposal photos! Love this man!

Peter photographed both our engagement and wedding photos, and we are BEYOND happy with how they turned out! Peter is a great person to work with and is extremely professional. His style of shooting makes you feel very relaxed all while getting great and natural pictures. Peter also surprised us at the reception with polaroids from throughout our wedding day and played a slideshow of photos for family and friends to see! His creativity is definitely something that sets him apart from the average photographer. We highly recommend!
