Images are powerful. They can say so much. And the incredible thing is they say something different to everyone. But maybe the best thing about photographs is they enable people to share their experiences in a way words can't. Words describe events. Pictures invite you into them. You can see the emotion. You can feel the energy. You can be in the Senate chamber, on the streets in a protest march, on the dance floor with the bride and groom. From the rose petal crushed beneath a bride’s white satin heel in a corner of a wedding hall, to the tremendous waves of emotion washing over faces in a crowd of thousands fighting for equal rights, every detail matters. It all makes up a life. It all defines our world. It all should be remembered.
I like to think I speak through my photographs. They allow me to comment on what I care about and express how I view the world. I started taking pictures so I could share things I found beautiful or important. I began by photographing my loved ones and the natural landscape where I live, eventually building a small business out of photographing weddings, events, protests, and parades. Through it all, I've realized: nothing in life is unimportant. Each occasion is unique, allowing me not only to help others remember their most treasured moments, but also share my commitment to equality and my passion for capturing the range of human emotion in images.
