“For me, photography is something I have to do. My mind thinks photographically. My eyes see everything as a possible photograph and the camera becomes a natural extension of who I am. After years of an interest in photography, it has developed into something more than a passion. There is so much joy when I capture those decisive moments. Or when I can produce a photo that matches the idea I had in my head. I document life to share life with others. Even when I don’t have a camera with me (which is very rare), I am taking mental snapshots and thinking how I can come back and capture what I saw. I am blessed to have access to so many wonderful artists who always inspire me to improve and to view the world around me with different eyes. I started WTK Photography to fulfill my passion of photography, to give you wonderful photos of life’s most memorable events or those simple, everyday moments. I didn’t just randomly pick photography up as a hobby. I made a decision to perfect it. I attended two schools and dedicated two and a half years to improve my craft. I have studied under working professionals including a Pulitzer Prize winner. I brought them assignments I worked on and they told me to go out and do it again because they knew I could do better. Through this I have become a perfectionist with my work and I believe I can bring you better images and better service than many other photographers. One of the reasons I chose to specialize in weddings is the amount of story there is. There are the big moments and there are the little moments. I work hard to capture all of them so I can help you remember that day in great detail with quality images. If you are interested in my services head over to the Contact page and send me a message. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to have the pleasure of working with you very soon!”
