One of best parts of being a creative is meeting and working with other creatives like myself. Say hello to the lovely ladies of Impel Beaty Bar, Erica & Brooke. These beauties offer raw hair extension & custom wig services. From humble beginnings of hair styling in college to owning a successful hair company right here in Charlotte, NC, they are the true definition of self-made.

This is Roger & Yvonne. Now, if you know me then you know I am a hopeless romantic. Roger is dear friend of mine and about 4 weeks ago, he came to me and told me that he would popping the question very soon. I was elated for him because there are very few men that light up the way Roger does when they talk about the woman they love. I was hoping that I would be involved in some way with the proposal (taking photos, of course). But then, Roger told me he needed my help actually planning it. Well, my exact words to him were, "Say no more!"
I took matters into my own hands and four weeks later, I carved out a little piece of heaven for him & Yvonne where she would say yes to the man of her dreams with the most romantic proposal they had ever seen.
True romance still does exist. Roger is living proof of that.
Hope all of you had a Happy Fourth! Its nearly been a month since I put up new content on the site and I apologize for the delay. I've been super busy, but I'm back and have some really cool stuff to share with all of you. Let's start with my absolute favorite, Melissa! I've been shooting Melissa for a few years now and she just gets better and better in front of my lens. One of the coolest things that she and I have collaborated on thus far is this recent partnership for Lidl Food Stores showcasing 'Esmara,' a clothing line specifically designed for Lidl by none other than supermodel, Heidi Klum.
Take a look below.
We also had a lot of fun just randomly shooting some looks that showcased Melissa's personal style. As you will see, she is so versatile!
My friend, David (far right) came up with this idea to have an event celebrating what it is to be a modern day gentleman. He solicited the help of El Lambert (far left) a musician and LeMond Hart, (center) owner of The House of Lemond, to help him lead a panel discussion at Banana Republic SouthPark on May 9, 2018. Each of them are gentlemen in their own right. I had the pleasure of collaborating with them for a shoot in Uptown Charlotte. As LeMond would say, "stay dapper, my friends!"
