After attending Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, my career as a photographer began in various studios throughout Southern Illinois and the St. Louis, Missouri area. In 1997, I chose my hometown of Collinsville, Illinois to establish a business in pursuit of my true passion for the art of photography.

As a member of the Professional Photographers of America, I have earned numerous awards. The most noteworthy being1st Place St. Louis Wedding Portfolio from Greater St. Louis Professional Photographers and 2nd Place in the State of Missouri – The Fuji Masterpiece, a very prestigious national award from Fuji Films.

By regularly attending seminars and entering local, regional, and national competitions, I am in tune with the latest technology and the ever-changing trends so common in the professional photography industry. With me as your photographer, you can be assured that your album will be everything you dreamed it would be. I look forward to working with you.
