Crafting the fine art of wedding memories preservation with a discreetly unobtrusive presence that becomes a priceless family heirloom is my passion. I have honed and crafted my unique style to the delight of hundreds of brides for well over a decade. My presence will be completely transparent, yet I will capture and preserve each important detail. My brides are now experiencing the joy of sharing their wedding heirlooms with their own children.

"I love preserving weddings! It is always an exciting, happy time to show up at a wedding. My work is cherished, relived  and passed down through generations like no other profession! "

His passion is preserving weddings, his family and our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. (not necessarily in that order:). He started Agape Weddings to emphasize his business specifically on weddings and scale down his demand in commercial and broadcast work. This also allows him more time with his wife Kathy and eight beautiful children.
Start your family with someone who values family values!
