Pressroom in Bentonville Arkansas

One of the reasons I decided to start my photography business here in Northwest Arkansas is the incredible variety of experiences. Photography has taken me to protests, restaurants, race-tracks, mountainsides, and everywhere in between. My latest adventure has been a tasty one! The startup company Porter & Sail contracted me to shoot about a dozen […]

Alex + Lauren – Hawksbill Crag Proposal

August 3, 2018

Hawksbill Crag is one of the prettiest places in Arkansas. I’ve photographed every sort of engagement shoot and proposal out here, but this one was by far my favorite. Alex proposed to his lovely fiance Lauren at sunrise on the 4th of July. We were the only ones on the trail to see the absolutely […]


Avid readers of my blog will know that I do automotive photography on the side and during weekends that I don’t have wedding shoots scheduled.

Arkansas Destination Wedding Photographer

Claudia + Ricky – A Costa Rican Wedding

April 3, 2018

When I started photographing as The Nikon Kidd back in 2014, I never thought I would have an opportunity like this one.
