Hi, I'm Lee. Dreamer, Romantic, Storyteller... DC wedding photographer.
I love being a wedding photographer in DC and feel very fortunate that my grandparents and parents, were so active in photographing our lives and documenting all those precious moments for us. Growing up I didn't get it, I can tell you there is more than one photo of me with a bored and anxious look on my face. I can still hear my dad, who has now passed, say "if you don't sit still we will be here all day". As an adult, I now get it. Not being able to talk with my dad everyday or ask for advice, I'm so thankful to have albums full of family photos to hold in my hands.
Fast forward to today as a DC wedding photographer, I want this for you. Nothing gives me more pleasure than capturing wedding photos that you and your family will cherish for a lifetime.
So let's get together at my studio and discuss your wedding over a bottle of wine or dare I say bourbon.
Capturing Your day with authentic, spirited and emotional images that will stand the test of time.
Your images should be as unique as you are and thats what I will capture for you. Those moments of when you reach out to your crying grandmother, or your 5 year old niece walking around in your wedding shoes. Those are the photographs, that will bring back your wedding memories 20 years later as you look through your wedding album. Don't worry, I will be there to photograph all the important moments of getting ready, the ceremony, the reception and all the moments in between. I hope you enjoy my portfolio and inspires you to hire this DC wedding photographer.
I've got your back.
Enjoy your wedding day knowing when you let this DC wedding photographer capture your special moments, your photos will be authentic and spirited, to reflect your unique love story.

When we first started looking for a DC wedding photographer, I was so nervous! This was going to be the person to capture our memories. Lee blew us away when we first met him and he was unbelievable during the wedding process and the big day.
He showed up early, took charge, made sure we stayed on schedule and got the most wonderful photos!
It was also wonderful receiving a preview of our photos as we left for our honeymoon- the best! Highly recommend Lee- you won't be sorry!
