13 Years of experience

I started when I was a little boy. There was nothing I loved more than watching people out of my parents bedroom window on the street. I would try to figure out each one’s unique story. After that, I picked up my fathers old Polaroid and the rest is history. I have been addicted to storytelling since then. Photography is my life. I work with my heart and my hands.

A fun fact about me

I enjoy archery and Star Trek

    We took photos with my elderly grandparents and they turned out great even though it was in our home and not in a scenic background. He positioned everyone to the best of their ability and we felt very comfortable having him in our home. The pics turned out beautifully and we had a great time.

    I had a few pictures that I showed to him. I wanted him to reproduce them at my photo shoot. He explained to me in detail and with great care which ones will work and which ones may not turn out the same way. I really appreciated that. He gave other suggestions and I must say I really liked how my photos turned out! He made me feel at home and never made me feel like my questions were silly!

    I’ve had several sessions with Elijah, and he is fast and great getting everyone to cooperate, lol! He photographed my family of 24, so it was no small feat. His pictures are beautiful and I would tell anyone to choose him as their photographer!!
