I love that every photograph represents a certain place in time … a moment. My heart leads the way, and when it comes to photography, my heart pushes me to soak in every precious detail.
From a young age, I thought my true calling was somewhere between bubble letters with gel pens, and filling my notebooks full of doodles. When I received my first camera at sixteen, my soul felt the pull towards photography. I was in love. Over the next several years, my journey was focused on fostering my love of telling stories with a camera. I decided to attend the College for Creative Studies to ensure I was learning how to apply art to life … It was about growing as an artist, and a person.
While finishing my degree, I was also planning my wedding. Suddenly, my eyes were opened to the wonderful world of wedding photography. From immersing myself in all of the beautiful planning, to connecting with my own wedding photographer, I knew I had found my calling.
Before I knew it, I was photographing weddings with my own photographer, and soon after, working towards building my own business. My heart beats fast when I capture those perfect moments: a soft smile after a kiss, the laugh during that amazing speech, and the tears of pure joy during the ceremony.
Along with photography being my passion, I also get to share my career with my husband, Dustin. I absolutely love working with my partner … I feel at home with him, and I am proud to say he inspires me creatively. Having a supportive 2nd shooter ensures we are able to capture all of the special elements of your day. It’s easy to capture love, when you’re working with the person you love so much!
If you’re still reading, I imagine you believe in love. So do I! The simple fact is this: I am completely head-over-heels in love with photographing weddings, and it’s an honor to be a part of each couple’s day.
