After earning a Political Science degree from Howard University, Rodney worked with several prominent Washington DC law firms before discovering a passion for photography.
Rodney has been shooting professionally since 2002, focused mainly on magazine editorial and fine art photography. He began shooting weddings in 2005 at the request of a friend and found a new path of artistic expression."I love the challenge that a wedding day brings.
While I think it's very important to get expected shots, I am also looking for those real moments that tell the couple's story that can't be faked. A knowing glance, a passionate hug, a prideful smile, hilarious laughter and joyful tears, I'm really looking for these moments.
Formals are important as well because they document each family's history so and they are done quickly so that the family members can return to the festivities. Also, if there is time I like try get some alone time with the couple so that we can create images with a fashion and art flare, these often end up being among the favorite images that my couples select for their albums or artwork to display in their homes".
Rodney's approach to wedding photography can best be described as wedding photojournalism infused with art and fashion editorial sensibilities. The focus is always on telling the wedding day story while making sure to capture relaxed portraits.

Rodney was truly excellent. We had an opportunity to view his work before we met. His eye for the right shot was awesome.
Rodney went out of his way to make our wedding extremely special. We loved his work on our wedding day but we were truly impressed by his prep. He came to our house. Asked what we wanted then delivered. The final result was phenomenal. He really worked hard to make it all work. My entire family had great things to say which isn’t easy. I would recommend Rodney to anyone.Sent on 06/14/2019
