Introduction: Photography is something I am very passionate about. I have a strong eye and my clients can attest to that. I shoot as often as I can, always experimenting in different areas and learning more and more along the way. The only thing I love more than viewing beautiful and inspiring photography, is creating it. I aim for a candid feel at all the weddings and events I shoot because I think the best photos are the authentic ones. When the moment is genuine, the image is strong. That is what I strive to capture and why I love what I do.

Ethan worked incredibly hard during our wedding and caught pictures of every aspect that I hoped he would. He also took a lot of artistic photos as well that came out beautifully. I am so completely satisfied and happy with the quality of the pictures and the professionalism Ethan extended to us before, during, and after our event. He is absolutely great at what he does.

FAQs

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

    There are never any additional fees. My quotes include everything (travel, showing up early to scout/setup, editing all photos, a flash drive and shipping for the deliverables). Every photo is delivered, no need to make selects or purchase favorites. My clients get full title and interest in the work, including all trademark and copyrights. In other words, they are free to use all the images however they would like.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Through my training at the Hartford Art School, University of Hartford, I have developed a strong understanding and knowledge in photography. Additionally, I have art directed $300,000+ photo shoots in LA, San Diego, Hawaii, Las Vegas, NYC, Portland and Memphis for clients like Budweiser, Bud Light, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Frito Lay, the NBA, the NFL and more.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I have always loved photography, It was a hobby of mine from an early age. I could never afford a quality camera, but that never stopped me from enjoying it. When the day came that I inherited a professional camera and an array of lenses my passion took off. I started shooting non-stop including holidays and events with family. It wasn't long before I found the joy of capturing authentic moments of people connecting.
