Photography is simply an insight into the human experience. I believe that movement and laughter create the drama that makes moments real. Our experiences are the reason for the stories that build us. Documenting your wedding is about much more than imagery; it is sharing that experience with you, your family, and your friends. I see every wedding as an opportunity for a new experience that will in turn build me as well.
Born and raised in Philadelphia by an Irish-Italian family, growing up was always about being present with the people you love and putting them first. Mom hosted all the family events and I'd always love to take a minute, watch, and snap some photos. Gradually my visual, story mind moved into theatre and I made that the biggest part of my life. I directed, and performed, all of it. It was intriguing to see how many ways a story can be interpreted and re-told. Towards the end of high school, my parents gave me a Pentax 35mm camera. I started taking "real" pictures so to speak and just kept the skill in my back pocket. Rest is history. Who knew it would be such an integral piece to the puzzle of my future.
Meanwhile---- I remain distracted by the shiny things and may play Johnnyswim & Jason Isbell on repeat because well, I'm Alli.
