"If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.”

Eve Arnold 1912-2012 photojournalist

Thank you to all my wedding clients I photographed over the years.  You have given me a solid foundation to build upon for all my future photographic endeavors.
I am incredibly grateful you trusted me with documenting your once in a lifetime moments.

I have been an artist all my life, taking after my father who taught painting, drawing, and photography at my high school (Carlisle High School) for 30 years. I went to undergraduate at Kutztown University and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. There, I had an awesome painting teacher named George Sorrels who encouraged me to apply for graduate school. I ended up attending the University of Delaware for my graduate degree in Master of Fine Arts. I converted from a film camera to a DSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera (Nikon D70s) in December of 2006. The love for the instant image began to grow.  After a few years working as a photographer for a school photo agency and being a second shooter for a wedding photographer, I opened up my own photo studio.  I photographed weddings from 2008 until 2018 along with some occasional portrait photography, sports photography and real estate photography.  From 2018 until present, my photography focus has been on marketing/product photography for local businesses, lifestyle business portraits, family portraits and real estate photography.

When it comes to writing I prefer to see myself as passionate about being thorough as opposed to being long winded...here goes. I have two of the most unique and loving kids any mom could ever hope for.  I have a son named Graeme Dennis and a daughter named Zoey Marie. They both keep me on my toes as well as the furry members of our family, Mr. Font, an Australian Cattle Dog and Mr. Henry our kitty cat. When I am not "working" you can find me on the local trails running, biking or rock climbing or in my art studio painting, drawing or making sculptures.
