What inspired you to use Forbeyon?
Their quality & unique options and reasonable prices.
What is the first thing that comes into your mind when you think of Forbeyon?
I love that it’s local and can call on them if I need to.
Share with us your favorite Forbeyon album and why. What materials/ options do you choose?
We love the metal window option…we use it on our upgraded albums as a surprise to the couple.
What advice would you give to the first time buyers of Forbeyon albums?
Don’t be overwhelmed by all the cool options they have, embrace it and choose your favorites to showcase to your brides, they always buy what they can see.
Any suggestions for Forbeyon?
Love the new pricing.
What inspired you to be a photographer?
I’ve always wanted to own my business and I loved photography, so the 2 easily meshed together.
How long have you been a photographer?
Are you formally taught or self taught?
Graduated from UNT with a Bachelors in Art and a minor in Photography…who knew the photography part would take off like it did!
How do you define your style?
What would we find in your camera bag for a typical shoot?
Nikon D4s and lots of prime lenses.
Your favorite lens?
70-200 or 85mm 1.4 for sure, depending on what I am shooting, but the new 105mm 1.4 has me excited.
Share with us your favorite image and why.
Really any image that completely tells a story ends up being my favorite.
What is your most important objective when shooting?
To catch the real and limit the fake, at weddings people are always tring to pose for you, but I try to go beyond that and capture them when they are caught off guard to capture their true selfs.
When you are shooting—how much of it is instinctual versus planned?
Of course, as a wedding photographer, you have to be able to assist in posing, but I just try to give them situations with each other that will bring the reaction I am looking for.
Where do you get your ideas and inspiration?
I follow National geographic because it has nothing to do with weddings but can showcase some breathtaking real life situations…it makes me focus on the real life situations that happen all around us everyday.
What has been the best advice given to you by another photographer?
Stop looking at the preview on the back of your camera after everyshot, you miss so much action when you do that.
What’s the best part of being a photographer?
Being my own boss and ultimately doing what I love.
If you weren’t a photographer what would you be?
I can’t imagine being anything else.
