Vanderbilt University Alumni Event

I had a great time photographing this tail gate party for the alumni of Vanderbilt University hosted at the University of Notre Dame. It was quite an event! There were even some television stars present who were graduates from Vanderbilt. In any case, it was a fun time taking candid and group photos of the guests. These photos were used for the fall issue of Vanderbilt Magazine.

The Fischoff Competition 2016

Since I have a new website now, I'm transferring all the data from my old website to this one. One great thing about it is re-living all the cool memories like the Fischoff Competition 2016! I'll be transferring all the Fischoff Competitions to this brand new section dedicated to all the Fischoff work I've done!

Featuring Notre Dame Weddings

I'm building an Instagram account that has photos of weddings exclusively from Notre Dame that I've taken over the years and contain wedding ideas, decorations, cakes, and more helpful ideas for brides and grooms who are planning on getting married there. The Basilica at Notre Dame is considered one of the most beautiful in the nation, what an amazing place! Follow my account at @ndweddings

Brand New Website ReDesign

I'm excited to launch a brand new website redesign. This powerful and cutting edge website includes new integrations across several platforms. One of the features is the addition of a self-hosted, integrated online store where I can create and list an unlimited number of products as well as handle bookings, subscriptions, gift cards, shirts and apparel without having to use a third party or direct to another website. It also features a seamless mobile design for tablets and phones. It's also upgradeable, which is excellent for security purposes and to keep it current with the latest browser technologies. And the best part of it all is that since it's self hosted,  no need for third parties! While it'll still take some time to fully develop it, I'm excited for all the new potential!

Photoshooting in Santa Catalina

Had a great time doing a shoot in this amazing location. This is the 16th century Monasterio de Santa Catalina known for its red and blue walls and for it's colonial Spanish architecture. We spent an afternoon taking photos and exploring this massive complex. There's so much interesting history here as it was one of the original structures built hundreds of years ago. Also, the walls are made from white volcanic rock. That part was fascinating, I've never seen white volcanic rock before. In many rooms and buildings they had painted the walls and ceiling various colors. Beautiful place!

Expanding to Europe

I've been doing a lot of traveling and am excited to be expanding to Europe on a more frequent basis. I'll be doing a lot of photography and have a particular interest in eastern Europe and its history. I'll still work in the USA but my schedule will be more limited in the future as I will be traveling back and forth. This will be an interesting year.

Beach Shoot with Shayla

Saint Joseph Michigan is one of my favorite places to do photoshoots. It's a really picturesque town and the beach is great for sunsets. We spent an afternoon exploring the town and then taking some photos at the beach. Always a great time!
