Krause Wedding | April 27, 2014

It’s funny how your past manifests itself in your future in good ways and bad. I’ve been SO incredibly fortunate to have great friends that I’ve known for years that believe in me. What is really amazing to me is the number of people who think about me so soon even when we haven’t talked…

Goals for 2014

Shift-4 Photography goals for 2014 that may or may not apply to life outside of photography New Year’s Resolutions are lame. Well, let me rephrase that. The idea that you have to wait until the new year to accomplish something is lame. Almost as bad as telling yourself that if you mess up once, if…

Oct 2013 - The first photo of mine that was published on national television

Best of 2013: A Year In Review

If there was a way I could show everything I learned this year in a series of interesting photos. I can’t. But man I’ll tell you, if I could I certainly would. That’s how much I’ve learned this year. That’s all I can think about. It’s been so much less about technique while actually behind…

Dealing with disappointment

Where I type out what I feel like I need to hear and pretend someone else said it. The hardest part about doing something is doing it wrong. The worst part about that is you don’t always know you’re doing it wrong until it’s over. I guess that’s the other part of ‘experience’. You only…

Joseph & Sara | Engagement Session

The Internet’s cool, right? I mean think about it, you can type essentially whatever you want, as specific as your heart desires, into a small search bar and within seconds results are returned to you. Ugly Christmas sweaters, limited edition toys, food that’s only grown on the other side of the world, a commissioned art…

Skov Wedding | September 7, 2013

“So this is Abbie, she’s awesome.” / “My name’s Jarrett, you should take photos for the newspaper at my school.” – Approximate quotes from the first times I met Abbie and Jarrett… When I met Abbie during marching band practice in 2004 I had no idea that in 2013 I would be in a position…

Daily Inspiration: Layered Time Lapse

It’s been a while since I’ve seen something where I’ve said to myself, “I absolutely need to go out and try this.” That’s the way it goes in the creative world sometimes, right? Creativity and inspiration isn’t something that one can just access whenever needed. It’s something that comes and goes, often at relatively inopportune…

Jeff & David: Wedding Reception

I like helping people. Not because I like to be the hero or gain some sort of glory, I just like when things go well for people. I like being able to take some sort of pressure or stress away from people and make their lives all the easier, even if it’s only for an…

Burnsed Wedding | 5.04.13 | Athens, GA

People say that rain on your wedding day is ironic good luck. If this is true, Joel & Liza Burnsed are about to be one of the luckiest couples anyone I have ever known. While the rain might have put a damper on some couples’ special day, the newlyweds and everyone involved took it all…

Feb 2013 - From my visit to Harbin's autobody shot in Snellville, Ga

30 minutes at Harbin’s Body Shop

Sometimes I like to… take my time with things. I’ve struggled with procrastination until my junior year of college and sometimes it still rears it’s ugly head. It’s partially because I always want to do the best job possible and I want to do as much as possible. I also get distracted by my ambitions……
