My grandfather and great grandfather and friend at Patterson's Camera, in Tarkana, Texas, circa 1950

Born and raised in Texas, I come from a family of photographers who still run the family store, Patterson's Camera, in Texarkana, Texas.  Now based in D.C., I love to document weddings, family life, events, and anything else you might be able to think up.  I also enjoy traveling further afield for photography and visit New York, Boston, Dallas, and elsewhere several times a year. In terms of style, my work is documentary and candid, though I make sure to direct when needed and capture posed portraits as well.  My sessions and events are fun and relaxed, and my passion is capturing the big and small moments during major events, or even just time with family. I look forward to connecting with you!
