"Sean was extremely dedicated in helping tell our story through his photographs. From the engagement photos to the wedding itself, he was attentive to our needs and to the details that made our wedding special. My wife and I are deeply grateful for his work and would recommend him to others."

"Sean is professional, meticulous and very experienced at photographing. We actually live in Alexandria and we eloped in Waynesboro (not too far from Charlottesville). We stumbled on Sean's site, because we were looking for a photographer in that local area. From beginning to end, Sean was a professional. He listened to our ideas and incorporated what we wanted into the pictures."

"Our ceremony was about 2 weeks ago, and we just got out pictures back. We LOVE THEM. They are so picturesque! He captured the emotion while capturing the ambiance. After leaving Sean and deciding on what pictures we liked, on the way home, I actually cried. I told my fiancee that was one of the most important things to me-THE PICTURES and they turned out better than we could have ever imagined!"

"Sean documented our rehearsal dinner for our wedding and we couldn't be happier! He was able to capture the sweetest and happiest moments of the evening. He also took Dad and daughter photos for my husband and stepdaughter. He was very professional and we will absolutely have him take photos for us again."

I'm an on-location photographer and I love being able to bring my passion and craft to locations that you (my clients) want.

I'm a husband, a father, veteran and photographer. I was born and raised in Alleghany County, Virginia and after high school, I joined the U.S. Air Force. During my six years, I have met some of the most amazing folks and have seen some great places. In 2007, I began my photographic journey to capture the beauty that surrounds us each day.

I now reside with my family in Waynesboro, Virginia. Here, there are no lack of great people and beautiful vistas. Every moment happens only once, I'm here to capture the best of them.
