From the moment I met Garrett, I knew he was going to be a great fit for our clients. 

"He has an ease about him that makes you trust his experience and his genuine love for his job. He makes everyone around him feel comfortable."

He always has a smile on his face, he listens intently, and deep down just loves what marriage means. All of that shows in his images.

The motivator, the energy of positivity! I love the spirit that he so willingly shares with his couples! Super qualities that make him an outstanding wedding photographer!"

"There is no-one better at making you feel special on the most special day of your life"

Where do I even begin!!? If we did not have Garrett as our photographer, our day wouldn't have been the same. He was so much more than just a photographer. His easygoing, joyful personality and kind spirit brought such a peace to our day. He is so gifted at making you feel celebrated and loved while seamlessly keeping everything on track. His photographs are top of the line and exceeded my expectations by miles!
