I love photographing people's stories! We are all so special and unique, with so much to offer the world in our own little ways. The camera is this magical tool that allows me access into these intimate moments in people's lives. So that's what I like to focus on most...the moments. They can be quite moments, when someone grabs your hand in comfort...or they can be louder when a Dad loses it seeing his daughter in her wedding gown. It's amazing. I've largely had a camera my entire life. It started with an old Nikon film camera my Dad had. Then in college I had the most amazing job, documenting our University's outdoor program. Photographing our trips where we went hiking, climbing, rafting, etc. It truly was a blessing. After college, I started photographing friends' weddings, not thinking much about wedding photography as a career...but as time went on, I realized I really did love the chaos of a wedding day, that one day when all these people of different stages in one's life come together to celebrate love. So I left my career as an Environmental Engineer and haven't looked back. [Mississippi Wedding Photographer]
"Everybody, everybody wants to love. Everybody, everybody wants to be loved. Everybody knows the love, everybody holds the love, everybody folds for love. Everybody feels the love, everybody steals the love, everybody heals with love." - Ingrid Michaelson To say that I love the words to this song up above is kind of an understatement. Somehow, I have made a career out of chasing love around and trying to capture it. It's really just that simple! I am moved by the beauty of love - and what better place to find love then at a wedding or in the face of a child? I've got a lot of love in my life and it reminds me daily how important my job is. My husband and I have been married for 13 years - it still seems like yesterday though! We have twins that were born in October of 2012 and the world's sweetest dog. They truly are the joys of my life - all 4 of them. But let's be honest, sometimes I need a happy photograph to remind me of that amid all the chaos. I first learned to love photography in college as a newspaper photographer and a lab assistant in the dark room (yup, it was all film back then). I've now been in the business of shooting weddings for 11 years and it's still a job that I would never give up. Learning more and more every year is a job perk that keeps me going! I'm definitely a photojournalist down to my core. Nothing motivates me more then true emotion. People often ask me what my favorite part of a wedding is. While there are so many things to love about a wedding I have to say I think it is the moment right after the ceremony when the bride and groom get to hug and celebrate with their family and bridal party...when the bride watches her mom hug her new husband, when the girls all giggly over the groom's face, when everyone screams with excitement, or when the groom and his dad laugh because the pastor called him the wrong name. I've always loved that the very best photographs are the ones that we could never have planned for. And this got me to thinking - what is it about weddings that cause so much emotion? And in the end I have decided that it is simply because family is important. Relationships are important. Love is important. Memories - life changing, crazy fun, heartfelt memories - they are important! I hope you'll trust me to capture these important memories! [Knoxville Wedding Photographer]
