Introduction: Hello, My name is Josh and I am so glad you are here! I am a photographer located in Triangle Area North Carolina. Photography has been becoming my passion since the very young age. I love pictures and the stories behind them. Going through old photographs is still one of my favorite pastimes. I always believe that pictures are a gift you give yourself and future generations. I got my Ph.D degree from Notre Dame in Electrical Engineering and surprisedly find out that the training I got from graduate school can even make my eyes more sensitive to capture the "tiny" happy moment through photograph. When families choose me to photograph their special moments in life. I feel honored and grateful. I want to return the gratitude by sharing my love and passion for photography within the community. My style is a mixture of posed and candid lifestyle portraits. I offer Family, Maternity, Engagement, Wedding and Milestone sessions. I wan to provide timeless, beautiful memories you can look back on for years to come.

Portrait Photography

My family and I would highly recommend Josh! He is a talented photographer! We had some family portraits done and we are really pleased with how the pictures turned out. He came to our outdoor location. He is easy to communicate with, flexible, an excellent value, and punctual.

Engagement Photography

We booked Josh for our engagement photoshoot on May 1, 2021. Josh was very responsive and open to ideas we proposed to him. He was very considerate in terms of what we had envisioned our engagement photos to be, and suggested us bringing flowers as props! He suggested a location for the photoshoot which was much better than what we had originally in mind, and we are so glad we went with that location instead! During the photoshoot, he also constantly asked where we wanted to go next, what poses we wanted, etc. Would definitely book him again for photoshoots in the future!

Josh was phenomenal! We decided last-minute that we wanted professional photos for our courthouse ceremony and Josh delivered all around. The price for the time and quality of photos is unbeatable. I already plan to work with Josh again for future photography needs. He’s a quick communicator and the process to book and pay was super simple. I can’t thank him enough for being our photographer (we literally booked two days in advance in the midst of graduation weekend and wedding season). Book with Josh — you will be pleased that you did!

Absolutely beautiful pictures! Very professional. On time, followed up with reminders and sent photos before the time stated. Very good to work with, suggested poses and walked campus. Would definitely recommend!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I try and provide the best value for money. My prices include travel, equipment, the photo session and post-processing (Lightroom and photoshop) . I offer per hour and all inclusive packages.

    Weddings, engagement, family, graduation, portraits, professional head shots, corporate events, special events etc..

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    Look out for the best places and time for the session. Decide what you want out of the photo session. These are great starters.
