Telluride AND Pittsburgh Photographer

Don't worry Pittsburgh! I'm not moving away yet. I'm not going away COMPLETELY either. I love Pittsburgh and I have a lot of work here. I want to keep it that way, there's a lot to come back for so don't worry, it's only a 4 hour flight.

I'll be photographing in Telluride a bit this season, I have dates in July and September right now and open to more.

I'll be relocating in June 2017.

So we have time! We have time to schedule that portrait you've been thinking about, time to get together to work on an album design and most importantly time to plan YOUR visit to see me in Telluride!

I fully expect a revolving door of guests coming to see us in Telluride. Let's schedule your portrait in Telluride! Why not?!

In the mean time, if we have a shoot on the books, let's make sure that happens before next June. And if we need to go over album details, it'll be more fun to do when we can be together, sipping wine and reminiscing your wedding day in person.

So call me!
