I am passionate about photographing influential people and people in love. Above all, I value instilling confidence in my clients and creating images that are as full of energy as the event itself.
My favorite things? Breakfast tacos, wine, planes, and trains!
The Liberty and Justice event held by the Iowa Democrats is one of the largest political events during the cycle. I was tasked with photographing Secretary Julián Castro during this event for his presidential campaign.
After making our way through the arena, Secretary Castro settled into the waiting room with his Personal Aide Billy Czerwinski and Press Secretary Sawyer Hackett. When the team was ready, he was briefed and got himself ready to take the stage.
Below is one of my favorite accidental moments from the day. I aimed my camera towards the stage to test the light. At the same time, Senator Michael Bennet from Colorado, was walking out.
We were walking quickly to leave the building as a gentleman working catering for the event rushed over to Secretary Castro. “I heard you and I thought you were Barack Obama! You sound just like him!” Secretary Castro took the time to listen to his concerns and spoke about how he’d address them as president.
