FAMILY COMES FIRST - Recently, some of our United States family photojournalists have communicated their readiness to work with families who are able to carry on with their normal life and who want it documented. Family Photojournalist Association professional members offer a distinct and natural style of unobtrusive photography that will capture genuine, candid moments of you, your children, and even extended family enjoying time together...everyone gets in the pictures and you will likely forget the photographer is even there.
The purpose of reportage family photography is to tell a story — your story. You will be able to feel the love that you have for one another in the images.

I'm a wedding photojournalist and documentary family photographer. I'm also an adventurous traveler and an all-round nerd. I love to hike and take selfies with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and my wife Sharon. I was born in Atlanta, moved around --21 cities and 5 states -- then came home. I listen to NPR, read the New York Times and The Washington Post and watch Netflix and Prime. My favorite series include Offspring, Derek, Atypical and Endeavor. Vita of a Nerd Photographer I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests and Ted Bundy while interning for the Associated Press. While a photographer for two dailies in Florida, I photographed Ronald Reagan, a train derailment and the dedication of a screened-in porch. An unexpected life turn took me to Vermont and on to Indiana, where I edited photos for a major daily, and nerded out getting a master’s and PhD. After teaching photojournalism in Florida, Indiana and Mississippi, I returned to Atlanta to earn my fifth degree--a Master's of Divinity. My passion for storytelling with my camera and my interest in religious diversity led my to the field of wedding photojournalism. I have documented weddings large and small, Hindu and Pagan, indoors and out, Christian and Muslim, in backyards and in churches. The most exotic wedding I have photographed took place in Mexico and was officiated by a Mayan shaman. You won’t find many Atlanta wedding photographers with the education, experience and caring personality that I have … a sense of humor and humility, too. :) When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, hang out at a tiny cabin in the mountains, work for racial justice and welcome refugees to our community.
