We are located in Lake Mary, Florida. You can either come to us, or we can travel to you (please see our Pricing menu for travel costs).

I am the photographer and videographer for Crossings Community Church in Sanford, Florida. Come see me behind the cameras on any given Sunday morning service.


I also occasionally offer my services via charitable donation to Chance2Dance. This all inclusive dance company is located in Maitland, Florida.


We provide a full menu of photography and video work to fit your needs.
Our camera equipment includes:
  • Canon EOS R5
    Our primary camera. Acquired over the R model because of it's superior auto-focus system and extra megapixels.

  • Canon EOS R
    We have two of these and they are used as our go-to video cameras (in combination with the Ninja V video recording units) and backup photography cameras.

  • DJI Mavic Air
    Our drone for aerial photography and 4K videos.

  • GoPro Hero 9
    Our action camera for creating videos during outdoor activity and for much of our vlogging content.

Our lens collection includes:
  • Canon RF 15-35 f/2.8
    Excellent wide-angle coverage that is perfect for both photos and video (especially in 4K crop).

  • Canon RF 24-70 f/2.8
    An all-around great lens to have, this is primarily used for events where zoom is a must.

  • Canon RF 70-200 f/2.8
    No wedding photographer's collection could be complete without this lens. Used for situations where light is low but you can't get physically too close to the subject.

  • Canon RF 24-240 f/4-6.3
    Our travel lens. Surprisingly sharp and an amazing 10x optical zoom.

  • Canon RF 35 f/1.8
    This lens is perfect for use on the Moza Air gimbal as well as extreme low-light situations. Crisp and light weight, it's great for groups of people at parties/events.

  • Canon RF 50 f/1.8
    A somewhat soft mid-range prime lens. Though not as sharp as the "L" lenses listed above... it is light weight, and like the 35mm above, great for groups of people at parties/events where lighting is limited.

  • Canon FL 50mm f/1.8
    This is a vintage lens first introduced in 1966. The copy I have is in pristine condition and I use an adapter to mount it onto my Canon mirrorless camera. This one holds special interest to me as that's the year I was born. Mine came mounted on it's matching body, the FT QL (also in pristine condition), but the body is used solely as a decoration on my trophy shelf.

  • Canon FL 50mm f/1.4
    This is a vintage lens also from circa 1966. As with the lens above, this one is in nearly pristine condition (only fault I can find is that the lens cap is a bit loose and often falls off easily). Unlike the f/1.8 sister lens above, this one is very soft wide open and remains soft until stopped down to f/2.8 where it is tack sharp and loaded with contrast. Both lenses are fantastic for color and are very easy to manually focus thanks to the excellently dampened focus rings. I bought this lens just to have in my collection, I don't expect to use it very often.

  • Sigma DG 150-500mm f/5-6.3 OS HSM
    This large tele lens has been our go-to for moon images, in combination with Kenko 2x extenders (usually two) for a maximum reach of 2000mm at f/26.

Other equipment:
  • Neewer Vision5 400W TTL
    These battery powered strobes allow for excellent lighting indoors and outdoors. Completely portable and long lasting, makes it a snap to travel to location for any shooting need.

  • Atomos Ninja V External 4K Recorder
    Digital cameras are limited to a total recording time of 30 minutes in one take. That's not to say that you can't record more time on the card, but no single clip can exceed 30 minutes. For this reason we us an external recorder for situations where a single recording will exceed 30 minutes.

  • Yongnuo YN-568EX II
    These flash units are great for portability and where lighting doesn't need to be the brightest. We use transmitter/receiver units in combination with several units to obtain great lighting effects.

  • Yongnuo YN-622C-TX and YN-622C
    This set of transmitter and receivers go hand-in-hand with the Yongnuo flash units so that you can have remote flash instead of mounted directly to the camera.

  • Moza Aircross 2 Handheld Gimbal
    This device allows us to use the cameras for cinema without the risk of the video being improperly level. Motion is no problem as it electronically adjusts to any movement and keeps the camera as steady as if it were mounted on a tripod.

  • Movo WMX-1-DUO 2.4GHz Dual Wireless Lavalier Microphone System
    With these wireless microphones, we can be in the distance and out of the way, but still capture the important speech for things like wedding ceremonies or speaking engagements.

  • Fifine K025 20-Channel Wireless Handheld Microphone
    This is much like the kind of microphone you see at many events. It can be handheld or mounted to a microphone stand.

  • Takstar SGC-598 Interview Microphone
    With this hot shoe mounted microphone we can capture your event with better sound quality while positioned on a tripod than the standard built-in microphone of the camera.

  • Tascam DR-60DMKII 4-Channel Portable Audio Recorder
    Using this sound mixer we can have several audio sources merged into one clean output for your videos.

  • Tascam DR-07X Stereo Handheld Digital Audio Recorder
    There are times when we can't record audio at the same time we're filming video. When that happens we rely on an external audio recording device. We then blend that audio with the video in post processing.

Of course, to carry all this gear around, you need quality bags:
  • Neewer Waterproof Hard Case
    This is our smaller case we use to transport just one camera, a couple of lenses, and a flash unit. Mostly for quick jobs.

  • AxiGear Waterproof Hard Case
    This is our on-the-go video travel case. Equipped to hold two digital cameras with lenses attached along with all the goodies needed for a video shoot. Plenty of room and solid as a rock.

  • Neewer Photo Studio Equipment Carry Bag
    This thing is just awesome. Holds several light stands, tripods, muslin supports, folded muslins, even the camera gear (if there's enough space after all that stuff is crammed in). Good thing it's on wheels because all that gear gets mighty heavy!

Our software includes:
  • Adobe Lightroom Classic CC
    For the most part, this is the only software we'll need for your project. We shoot all our stills in RAW format and then edit/process them with this software.

  • Luminar
    For those times when additional touches are requested, we can enhance your photo with skies, portrait touches, enhanced colors, and many other features.

  • Corel PaintShop Pro
    There are times when the above mentioned software cannot do it all, and when that happens we pull out the big guns. This software allows us to make major edits to your photos that would not be easy, or sometimes possible, with other software.

  • Corel ParticleShop
    This plugin for PaintShop Pro allows us to add special effects to images, most useful for specialty sports banners.

  • Wondershare Filmora
    This software allows us to create your custom video. It's quick and offers stellar output with some of the most advanced transitions and special effects available today.

  • FxHome PhotoKey
    This software allows us to shoot in green screen and then substitute with a background of our choosing.

  • Aurigma Green Screen Wizard
    Much like PhotoKey, this software is used to substitute a green or blue background with another of our choosing. Both of these applications have their pros and cons and we use whichever fits the need at the time.
