A raw look into my thoughts and photographic endeavors.

10 Years Ago Today…….

10 Years Ago Today…….


I married my best friend and soul mate, Lauren Michelle Bradford at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Austin, Texas. What a ride it has been.

We lived in Northern Virginia, inside the D.C. Beltway for our first five years of marriage.  Together, we visited historical sites, tasted fine wine, and explored the beautiful countryside. Memorable years to say the least.

You are the glue that holds our family together. The one who keeps me grounded my confidant, my lover, my wife, and my best friend.  I love you Lauren Faske, Happy 10 Year Anniversary. I can’t wait to see what the next ten years have in store for us.



Special thanks to Melissa Polka and Daniel Sledge, who hooked us up on that blind date at Posse East back in high school. I think it worked out just fine
