My love for photography and film making began with an even bigger mission. When I was in high school I became passionate about photography and the way it had been a catalyst for change throughout recent history. I wanted to be a part of the power of a photo to galvanize people to do something for the hurting around the world. I went to LSU to major in photography and there I learned the fundamentals of lighting, documenting, and storytelling. I then started a business shooting weddings in South Louisiana and beyond. Three years of shooting weddings paved the way to start working with organizations whose mission was at the heart of why I picked up a camera in the first place. In 2013, a trip to Port au Prince, Haiti changed my life and created a determination to see that mission fulfilled..to see photography and now film making create a desire in others to pray, give, and go not just to help physically but also to share the only hope that transcends suffering, the hope we have in Jesus Christ. Since that trip to Haiti, I have worked on 5 continents and over 10 different nations to provide photographs and films for organizations who are sharing hope with others. I have worked with groups like Mission to the World, Hand Up Global Goods, Noonday Collection, Gardere Community Christian School, Umucyo Sewing Cooperative, and Hope Ministries. I spend most of the year traveling and working on these projects, but you can still find me shooting weddings in Baton Rouge, New Orleans and around the country for parts of the year.
Every couple whose wedding I shoot gets to be a unique part of this work abroad as 5% of every wedding booked goes to one of these organizations.
