Every two minutes Americans snap as many photos as the whole of humanity took in the 1800's. There's definitely an abundance of pixels out there, as people document every detail of their lives and share it with the world instantly. But do they all tell a story? Do they capture the essence of a fleeting moment in time? It's my goal to not take a photograph, but to take THE photograph--the one that forces you to pause, relive the moment, and discover something new every time you see it.
I'm a New Orleans native, but my family and I moved to Knoxville in the summer of 2017 seeking new sights, new adventures, cooler weather, and higher ground. I had the pleasure of shooting weddings for Studio Tran Photographers in New Orleans for 7 years--they continue to be some of the best photographers and friends I've ever met.
