I've spent the past decade capturing breathtaking images for couples & brands around the world.
Growing up, my Grandmother my entire world and she taught me to believe in myself, in my ability to accomplish anything I wanted, and also to appreciate the stories that people have to share. She was a larger than life personality and the most kind and approachable person I ever knew. Those years watching and learning how to treat people, how to turn strangers into friends, mixed with the hours upon hours we would look through old photos together (talking about the stories behind them) has shaped me into the person I am today.
I know photos are a visual inheritance, something that will outlive us and the people we love. I believe that turning everything into something visually beautiful, isn’t JUST what a photo is about. It's about the stolen glances, the private moments you didn’t think I'd see, the fragments of life and happiness that shine outward, and the unique heartfelt emotions that make your story unique.
I'd love to showcase who YOU are. Let's make magic together.
My Grandmother Bev was my entire world.
Not only did she shelter me from the storms of life and home, but she taught me to believe in myself, my ability to accomplish anything I wanted, and also to appreciate the stories that people have to share. She was a larger than life, loud Italian personality, and the most kind and approachable person I ever knew.
She knew how to make people feel seen, loved, and heard, she knew how to make them smile and how to truly connect. She remembered names and faces … and she was a great tipper. Those years watching and learning how to treat people, how to turn strangers into friends, and how to make others feel valued became a core part of who I am today, and an ethical pilar in every business Ive ever owned.
Some people love collecting things. I love collecting people.*

Get to know
I picked up a camera when I was 12 and knew immediately I wanted to create images that went in a magazine someday… still never knowing it was a career I could actually have.
My close friends call me Jay or James.
I started my first business as a way to control my time and my schedule with my kids and travel the world more.
I have 4 beautiful kids who are literally the greatest thing I ever did in my life.
I'm obsessed with the same things I was as a teenager: magazines, movies, music, and fashion. Some things never go out of style.
If I could turn a dream into a career this late in the game, I'd race cars for a living.
I eat like a 15 year old boy… mac and cheese, donuts, cereal for dinner.
The only place my mind shuts off is at the ocean.
