Since I can remember, I've always been fascinated by old photographs. Photographs are the only thing that allows us to travel back in time and relive moments that will never be repeated. That and my obsession for rom-com's like The Wedding Planner, The Wedding Singer, My Best Friend's Wedding (and the list goes on and on) should've been signs that I was to eventually become a wedding photographer. At the age of 20, I purchased my very first film camera. At the time, learning how to use a camera didn't matter much to me. What mattered the most was documenting all of the important events in my life. The desire to learn photography came when I purchased my first digital camera. I learned the basics of photography thru photo communities and countless hours of online tutorials. Eventually, I took workshops with photographers whose work I admired the most. Being able to shoot side by side and learning from one of my favorite photographers, made me appreciate photography so much more. He taught me the art of telling a story and provoking emotions in my images.
Going from being a secretary to a wedding photographer for now almost 12 years was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I've had the opportunity to meet and photograph hundreds of amazing couples, some who have become personal friends and I've traveled to beautiful destinations! But the best thing about being a wedding photographer is the satisfaction to see my clients shed joyful tears when they see their images for the first time. Being able to give them something they can look back on in the future to reminisce and to share with their children is priceless.
When I'm not behind a camera, I'm spending time with my husband, family and friends, and my fur baby Wilson.
I'm always looking for the next Country music festival or concert...can't get enough of it! But I do enjoy all sorts of music genres.
I guess you can say I'm somewhat of a hopeless romantic at heart.
