It's funny talking about yourself.. but I guess that line was already crossed when I created a personal website. I'll keep it short, but do my best to keep things relevant.
Things really started when I studied Visual Communication Technology at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, graduating in 2005. Ay Ziggy Zoomba! Since then, I have been shooting weddings and portraits under my own brand. I love having a job that allows me to explore my creativity, and presents a different challenge every time. I guess it's a drive I've always had. The cliché that every photograph has a story worth telling actually has a lot of truth in it! There are all kinds of funny, quirky, and moving moments that are gone in a second, but remembered forever in a photograph. It's truly a privilege to be asked.
When I sign up for a project, I don't know how NOT to put my heart into it. I love photographing people wild about each other and life. I show up earlier than you think, and usually end up being one of the last people to leave. The result is work I truly hope circles all of the things that matter most to you.
On the other side of that world is my on-going project I call "Beach Day". It's a square format photography series on the coast, from both sides of the country. Ever since I was a kid, I've just loved the water. Thankfully, I've been fortunate enough to live in Savannah, GA, near the water of Lake Erie, OH, and now off the coast of Olympic National Park. Most of my photographs are taken through a neutral density filter, giving each one it's own little challenge and time frame. If I'm able to take a part of you out with me in spirit, then I've accomplished my goal.
My friends may say I have an obsession for cats, probably listen to music from the 90's too much, and have a love for science fiction novels and films. I firmly believe that Decker is a Replicant, and that we are actually the Monolith, sans the ego.
I live south of Tacoma, Washington. My primary service is in event photography, which generally means weddings, portraits, seniors and meetings. However, I am open to all requests!
