A collection of self-portraits. Sort of.
"Everybody knew, since we met in college, that we were going to end up married, we were just the last ones to accept it."
I shoot these photographs using a special camera modified to capture the Infrared spectrum of light.
Infrared light is all around us on a daily basis but our eyes lack the sensitivity to see it; I always loved the symbolism of this, making me wonder what else is out there, maybe right in front of our eyes, without us knowing it.
These photographs give me, and you the viewer, the ability to see familiar places in a totally new way, rediscovering our world and hopefully appreciating it's beauty a little more.

The "Gentlemen of the Road" tour made a stopover in Guthrie, Oklahoma and my friends and I decided to hit the road. We camped for three nights in the exhausting summer heat, met a bunch of cool people, and ended up in the best way possible, with a concert by Mumford and Sons.
These are some of the photos from that trip.
You know, the PG-13 ones.
A friend's birthday was coming and when I asked her what she wanted as gift she said "go out and take photos for me".
This was the result, red lights and stop signs never have been more fun.

"What is the thing that you think brought you together?"
"Well, we met playing softball. Still to this day we are on a team together."
"Let's go with that!"
From strangers to engaged in less than a month. Sometimes you just have to go with your gut feeling and take the leap.
This wedding was, from beginning to end, in a language I could not understand a word of, which made it such a unique experience. I had to guide myself by sight only.
What I learned was that for Vietnamese people a wedding is not just the union of two people, but of two families, and everything in their traditions reflects that.
And color, they know how to use color.
