You have landed here either because you are interested in photography, looking for a wedding photographer or even a portrait photographer. This area of the site is for stories of real events I have photographed over the years. Why Stories? I hear you say, well a story has a beginning, a middle and an end just like the photographic service I offer a couple or clients.

Take a little time to look through the entries below and you’ll find real photography, no fake or staged shoots just what you can expect at your wedding or event. Fun, and Natural Photography.
