I photograph real people, real moments, real life.
I believe authenticity matters, that an actual memory gives weight to an image that increases and reveals more with time.
My clients aren't after a look. They want someone who sees.
As a former photojournalist and current documentary photographer, I have a different perspective on covering a wedding. I don't take pictures I arrived with in my head. I'm sensitive to the people around me and capture the unexpected. The significant. The revealing.
You may not notice me at work, but you will remember the work I do.
I let moments flow, undisturbed. I let you be you.

I can't stop looking at my photos
I love our photos so much. Carl worked so hard the entire wedding, running around, standing on chairs, being everywhere. He got so many amazing candids of us and our friends and family. He also captured the funniest moments. My only problem is that I don't have wall space for all 250+ photos.Sent on 07/13/2019
We also found him easy to work with - responsive to emails, seemed to get us. He was the perfect photographer for our wedding.

Our experience with Carl was amazing! He is a true artist and not just a wedding photographer. We received our pictures and they are stunning. We were astounded at the variety of photographs he was able to capture. He was everywhere. We were trying to figure out how he got around so quickly to take all the photos. Black and white and candid photos are timeless and elegant. Carl delivered on this concept 100%. Thank you, Carl!Sent on 10/08/2017

Carl photographed our wedding at the Brown Palace in Denver. We were initially drawn to Carl because of the amazing portfolio he has on his website. We loved his modern and unique style, and his keen eye and ability to capture the most incredible moments. Carl did just that for us on our wedding day. Our photographs are amazing. We continue to look over them and say "how did he get that shot?!?", but he did. All the moments that we talked about the days to follow, he caught on camera with his distinctive viewpoint and style. He also did it in a completely inconspicuous and unobtrusive way.Sent on 03/06/2017
We were told when we got engaged that there are only a few things you should really invest in, one being your wedding photographer. Carl is an investment well made. The album he created for us post-wedding was also perfect--modern and beautiful. I can't recommend Carl highly enough. He is an astute documentarian, and he will give you the most awesome wedding photographs. You won't be sorry.
Carl was one of the first photographers to capture a wedding at Rose Hill Manor. The small black and white album he provided us those many years ago, is to this day the client favorite in our showroom. The skiil and nuance that reads in his photos is amazing.
