my family


hi, im joe.

and this is my family, plus one on the way. We love everything there is about the outdoors, good food, coffee, beer, tacos (the real ones). We are from the west coast and moved to upstate NY in 2017 with our 2 kids, 2 cats, and our great dane to start a new adventure. My wife is an amazing florist who runs Olive & June Floral Co. (named after our daughters of course). We love doing weddings together (duh) and might even become your friends after.

Now on to the stuff you actually care about, what it’s like to work with me. I do things a little bit differently than what you have probably experienced from photographers. First off, I get that normal people aren’t professional models and are not always comfortable when a camera is being pointed at them… all day long. Believe me when I say, I really want you to enjoy the most special and memorable day of your life; making you uncomfortable is the last thing that I want to do. I want you to have fun with your new best friend for life. I want to make and capture those moments that you will remember and cherish forever. I want to capture you for who you are and how you feel, not what I want you to be for the images I want to capture. So you can forget about uncomfortable “poses” and overly produced images (unless that’s who you are). I want to capture your real, raw, unposed emotions and moments. 

The best part of my job is getting to know and becoming friends with my clients and capturing the best moments of their lives. Because getting to know you and building that relationship is what makes the difference in being welcomed into your most precious moments or not. So if actually enjoying and having fun taking photos sounds better than being organized into uncomfortable poses sounds like something you want, hit that bottom below to book!
