While some consider photography their craft, many consider Calvin a true craftsman.

"It started with his very first photo, made by hand, right down to the camera he built himself. This handmade approach is what allowed him to gain a deeper understanding of the art, freeing him to be fully present outside his viewfinder. While other photographers are trying to capture how things look, Calvin captures how moments feel.

In the process of recording the tales of others, he’s crafting his own. His tools: a fascination for light and an intense curiosity for the unknown. They’ve cultivated one of the more gripping styles in wedding photography today – and the industry is taking notice. Calvin’s work has commanded the attention of prestigious publications such as Junebug Weddings, Tahoe Unveiled, and Looks Like Film.

More importantly, Calvin’s style and eagerness to collaborate continue to dazzle his brides. Somewhere in between the complex earth tones and somber shadows, he finds space for light to come pouring in, bringing out the radiance in each of his subjects. But even he knows light is just half the story. The rest, as he says, is emotion.

That eye for the dramatic stays with him wherever he goes. Whether for work or leisure, Calvin’s world travels are never without a camera by his side. By combining his two greatest passions, travel and storytelling, Calvin is taking his brides and grooms into new and exciting territories- figuratively and literally.

Above it all, Calvin thrives on positivity. He’ll tell you that his favorite part of the job is being with
people on the happiest days of their lives. He loves chasing the big moments, elevating the little
ones, and turning every precious second of your big day into a keepsake for life."
