Two families coming together on the small island of Kauai. One from Arizona, the other from Northern Ireland. You can trust me when I say it was a thing of beauty. Everyone chipped in to make the day special in so many ways. I could go on for days about the beauty I experienced but […]

This is the first post in a new series called Travel Vignettes. These posts will serve as a guide of sorts that I hope will create inspiration with my fellow travelers. My goal is to give you a glimpse into the places that make me feel alive while still leaving some mystery to discover them […]

2014, you were a wild ride. Laughter was abundant and tears were shed – often within the same day. That’s what it means to be alive. I have no desire for these images to go viral. No desire for fame. I just hope they make you feel something. Ultimately that’s the gift I seek to […]

Your pictures are amazing, wonderful and creative. These should be on the shelf in a book in the library and many homes. So original too and ideas I have never seen before. You have an amazing year in 2015 coming! And in 417 magazine too! You have such talent!

What a year mate.

Jesse Pafundi - December 31, 2014 - 2:58 pm

You could make a sick coffee table book purely out of the landscape images you posted here. Inspiring work and so much growth. Happy to call you a friend.

We started in Manhattan, took off to Roberta’s in Bushwick for the wedding, and ended up in Koreatown for some karaoke. Looking back this wedding brings back so many fond memories. Sarah & Maarten this thing you have for each other, it is good and it is beautiful. I hope you won’t soon forget that. […]

Everything about Sydney and Chris’s wedding at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn was absolutely gorgeous. Their families coming together, the laid back vibe, the weather, just all of it. If they did it again tomorrow, I’d be there in a heartbeat. Thank you so much to Nate Stracke for your amazing talent in shooting this […]

Les Butterfield - October 22, 2014 - 9:29 pm

You always do a great job, continue to inspire.

My heart is still so full from the hospitality Nicole and Brady showed me while documenting their wedding in Southern Indiana. The wedding took place at Brown County State Park and the Story Inn – a small town and general store that I highly recommend visiting. It’s uniqueness and charm make for a perfect road […]

A gorgeous evening spent on the Buffalo River is always a good thing but it’s even better with a marriage proposal. Jes and Mat I’m so happy for you two – Mat thanks for having me along to document this moment. I’ll let the images take it from here.

OMG WHAT?! THEY GOT IN THE WATER…amazing. absolutely bloody brilliant.

Rachel Sumner - September 16, 2014 - 6:00 pm

Love em all. But the third to last is absolutely perfect.

Magic. That little word we use when we can’t fully describe what we see. Sarah and Nathan’s wedding day was absolutely full of magic. Their intimate wedding took place on Nathan’s parent’s farm just outside of my hometown of Springfield, MO. Looking back I still can’t believe all the hard work friends and family put […]

[…] Oh heeyyyy! […]

Words will never quite suffice when describing a day like this one so I’ll keep it short. Ashleigh and Nick thank you for being so in the moment and gracious hosts at the same time. I hope these images come close to representing the love you have. Best wishes.

Esther Marie Ziegler - May 23, 2014 - 7:10 pm

Spectacular, Christian!

Nessa Kessinger - May 23, 2014 - 9:33 pm

This wedding is the epitome of southern charm! :)

Jane Hale - June 2, 2014 - 4:28 am

The beauty of the wedding is only surpassed by the two beautiful people who became one that day. Congrats! Ashleigh and Nick. LU Gma Jane

Adriene Hunter Walker - June 2, 2014 - 1:41 pm

Absolutely Beautiful!!! Love them all. What a gorgeous couple.

Jameykay and Tyler showed me a little southern hospitality by hanging out with me for this session in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Thank you two for being so amazing to work with and the enjoyable conversation.  I’ll definitely be back your way soon.

Holy cow, these are stunning! Where is this in Asheville? I’ve lived there for five years and have never seen this.

Moving forward I’m chasing after more editorial and documentary assignments in addition to my weddings. My new editorial site showcases some of my favorite images in this vein of work. I’d love to chat more about collaborating on projects with you. Let’s chase our dreams. Together.

Winter in the Midwest can be particularly long. The days become grey and evening comes too early. This gives me plenty of time to think about how I want to pursue my vision. Pushing myself to focus more on worthwhile projects has been at the center of these thoughts. It has become so easy to […]
