I am very lucky and happy to be alive. I had severe migraines when I was a teenager and suffered a stroke at age 18. This led to many hospital visits and consultations with doctors. I was diagnosed with an Atrial Septal Defect(ASD) a hole in my heart. It was the size of a dime. I red-shirted my freshman year in college, while on a swimming scholarship at the University of Utah, in order to have surgery to correct my heart defect. Not swimming for a year was very difficult for me and I realized that good health is the most important thing in life.
After graduating from the University of Utah with a degree in Painting & Drawing, I bought my first film Canon SLR. Not too long after that I upgraded to a digital Canon Rebel. I shot my first wedding in Cincinnati in 2008. Shortly after that NeriPhoto was born. Now with top of the line Canon gear I paparazzi brides and grooms all over the country. I book a limited number of weddings per year to provide my brides and grooms with an outstanding experience.
I love art in any shape, color and size. I love early mornings, marinas and yellow roses.
People inspire me.
Thank you for stopping by my website and I hope to meet you soon.
