Essentially I’m a wide open heart who finds beauty and curiosity and significance around every corner in the textured experience of life, especially anything that involves common human themes. A while back I discovered I could effectively express that through a camera. I’m a true empath, and I believe it's through this compassionate understanding that I'm able to infuse your photographs with the richness of your authentic experience.
If you were to ask what I'm doing in this web-space, in a single sentence, it would be finely crafted, vividly emotional, wedding and family photojournalism for the deeply connected. I strive to make thoughtfully composed and meaningful images with each click. For me that is a different path every day I pick up my camera, as I truly connect with my subjects and their experience, individuality and feelings, and revealing that in pictures. No wedding, no family, no day, no photograph is ever the same for me.
I'm eager to hear from you, to learn about you, and to document what makes your life and connections uniquely yours. Send me a note so we can connect.

Some of the most important photographs possible in your life and in the lives of those you love will happen on your wedding day.
Your wedding is the one time everyone you are deeply connected to is gathered in one place. Your life partner, long-time companions and friends, the people who cared for and loved you as you grew into you, and you, of course, at your happiest and most grateful. The thoughtful images I create for you will reflect the people and relationships you value in authentic, relevant, artful and interesting ways.
As your lives move forward and you look back at your wedding images, I want you to remember how loved you are and how much you love. I want you to be filled with gratitude for your wedding experience and for the people who shared and championed that experience with you. I want you to always remember how that felt.
Unequivocally, I take the long view of wedding photography, creating a collection of images that will increase in value over time. I envision you and your partner in your senior years, holding hands and reflecting on your life together, reminiscing on when and where it all began, joyful from the feelings and connections I captured for you.
Complete wedding collections begin at $3900. Let's connect.

I photograph the truth in families. I aim to create a set of images that reveal what it feels like to be your family- to be IN your family.
There are a handful of candid images that I have from my young life, growing up with my family, that tell the real story of who I was and what my experiences were like at that age. Elements in these photos - the homes, the people, their clothes, our connections, the activities and interests - truly pull me back into the decades-old memories. The photos remind me about how I played, where I lived, who I loved, who loved me, and how I sized up in the world. The gratitude and value I personally get from these photographs inspires me to document families with total authenticity.
My concept of and experience with families is very broad and accepting: maybe family is your 7 pomeranians, or just you and your lab, or your human best friend, your cousins, your ski trip pals, your partner, or the whole clan of parents, 5 children, 3 dogs, 2 cats, and a goldfish represented on your minivan’s rear window decals.
Most often I photograph families in their home environment, on a typical every day. I also document significant events like births and deliveries, vacations, birthdays, or any other reason your family comes together.
Session fees begin at $500. Let's connect.

Wedding photography is perhaps the most important decision (except of course for the partner you choose) toward how you will remember your wedding day and how you will share the stories with those you love. Family photography is equally important, and especially if you have children know that the images and memories will be unimaginably valuable to them when they are your age and older. My hope is that sharing some words from my clients below and more of their photographs on my blog will help you feel safe and confident that I will take exceptional care in documenting your wedding experience and family connections.
"Wow… I think you broke our hearts… in the best way. We looked at everything last night and just can’t believe how authentically you documented our wedding. You captured every single moment, feeling, and relationship. We are just stunned by the images and are grateful for your talent. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this lasting gift.” - Nicole + Ryan
"I don’t have words. I cannot thank you enough Jeremy. I will cherish every image forever. The picture of my brother and I literally took my breath away. And there are so many incredible perspectives. I am overwhelmed and filled with gratitude. The pictures give me chills. All of them. My crazy world stops for just a minute and I am transported back to that day. I remember how I felt. I remember how completely undone I became that day because you captured the arc perfectly. We are lucky to know you, and consider ourselves blessed to have had you capture our life changing day. The heart you bring to your work is unmatched. You are truly amazing.” - Melissa + Nathan
"Where to begin? We are beyond grateful for the talents, time, emails, pointers and more. You truly captured our love and friendship better than we could have ever hoped." - Autumn + Chris
“What an incredible surprise. We are absolutely floored, thank you thank you Jeremy! Wow.” - Deval + Amil
“My dad is a person who really doesn’t like to have his picture taken. He had this to say, 'I detest having my picture taken but have never been more at ease in front of a camera. You were everywhere yet never intruded on the event itself.’” - Charissa + Jess
“My only complaint is that I have too many amazing pictures of my wedding and it’s making the selection process difficult. I cried more tears of happiness seeing the pictures for the first time than I did on the actual day (which was a lot). Every photograph provokes an emotion. I believe this was the smartest money I spent on the wedding.” - Emily + Brad
