Alan has a gift of capturing the best shot at the precise moment, often when you're not expecting it. His incredible portfolio is a testimony to the fact that he takes great pride in his work, and is one of the best in his field.

We really appreciate the thorough effort given to getting to know us before the photo shoot and acting on that information throughout. It really makes us feel like you want to spend that time with us - you’re not just doing a job. The photos were fantastic and definitely captured all sides of our personality and we are so very pleased with our wall canvas selection we ended up purchasing.
