In 2008 I started a photo-blog called Americanvirus as a creative outlet and personal diary. I bought my first digital camera and started posting my photographs. Soon my work was invited to be on exhibit as art installations in galleries throughout Europe and Los Angeles. My photos started being used internationally for everything from rock n' roll bands to ad campaigns.
The best part was when I started receiving emails to the blog from people who wondered if I would be interested in capturing their wedding day. I'm overjoyed that a bride and groom would want me to be the one to make a record of what is probably one of the most important days of their lives. Wedding photography has now become my personal work. I believe in love, and it is such a privilege to know that it is my images a couple will be holding when looking back upon their day in years to come.
My wedding work has appeared on television's The Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Inside Edition. My work has also been featured in several magazines including Marie Claire South Africa, Seattle Bride Magazine, Unique Bride Magazine, Mixmag, Tom Tom Magazine, F2 Freelance Photographer, and the UK's Daily Mail. Also, my wedding work has been featured on numerous wedding blogs including Green Wedding Shoes, Rock N' Roll Bride, The Knotty Bride, A Practical Wedding, Snippet & Ink, Elizabeth Anne Designs, Hi-Fi Weddings, Ever Ours, Beyond//Beyond and of course, Offbeat Bride! Actually, Offbeat Bride was the first blog to ever feature my work! In a way, it's the wedding blog that feels most like home to me. I love Offbeat Brides!
