About Your Photographer

Hi & welcome to Polston Photography! 

Thanks for stopping by!  That's me, behind the camera as usual. I have been photographing all walks of life for over a decade.  My journey's have taken me to some captivating places and my passion for capturing beauty in all things is what drives me to photograph.  As we all know, the work of a photographer is much more than the click of a camera.  It takes a special candidate to possess all the proper ingredients needed to be a successful, innovative photographer. 

From Weddings, Events, Portraiture, Photojournalism, to Commercial Photography; I am certain I have the personality, skill set, creativity and enthusiasm needed to fulfill your needs.  I strive to make lasting relationships capturing your precious memories for a lifetime!  Thanks again for stopping by, and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
