I love a good party. Even more so, I love the challenge of capturing those fleeting moments in time, beautiful images that bring the feeling of a particular memory rushing back and giving them the opportunity to live on forever.


I've had a camera in my hands since I was a kid going on photo trips with my dad. It's more than a hobby or job, it's my life.

    Larry is incredible. Not just an amazing artist who captures the most authentic, gorgeous shots possible, but he makes everyone feel like their best self in the process. I've seen completely self-conscious folks absolutely emerge in front of the camera and the results are spectacular. Highly, highly recommend.

    Working with Larry was a wonderful experience! He is very approachable, professional, and engaging; he made me feel comfortable and confident. The headshots he photographed and produced are excellent quality and transmit the message I want my clients to know about me. I highly recommend his services.
