who likes writing about themselves on these pages. I don't know anyone that does. So instead of writing a lengthy boring bio about who I am, I'll make it short and to the point.
I'm an easy going type of girl, nature lover, and obsessed with photography. As a child, I would flip through my Dad's monthly National Geographic magazines and wonder about the world but NEVER thought I'd be a wedding photographer. I loved to take pictures with a disposable camera growing up, never realizing that it was my calling to be a photographer (sorry if that was a little deep). The pressure of a wedding, I just couldn't understand why anyone would put themselves through that stress. Little did I realize that the relationships, the story, and the connections FAR exceeded any stress.
I'm an extrovert and introvert, big time foodie and CONSTANT dreamer. Love to be outdoors, on any body of water, up a mountain or just on my couch eating a plate full of cheese (yes I said a plate FULL of cheese).
I love hard (cry at commercials about families and their dogs), love to get a little messy and love a good meal with good company. If you like anything on this page, we are going to get along just fine.
I will explore distant places with you and create unforgettable memories of your love that you will treasure forever (Can you hear the Dos Equis Spanish man with a raspy voice saying that?) Totally sounds fake but it’s true! This is what excites me. I love shooting those simple moments of real connections. I don't like to pose. I want to capture the emotional bond between you and your person. It’s awesome. I want to be apart of that awesome. And nothing is better to capture than a belly laugh that makes you cry (and pee) a little.
I thrive for creative details, the lace lining of your dress, the specially chosen flowers in your bouquet, the Spanish building your getting ready in, the handwritten letter to your love..... details that tell your story together. A wedding or elopement full of personal touches, unique treasures and homemade style is the best type.
It's extremely important for me to be completely present when documenting your love, giving you my all, 100% of the time. I value our connection as much as capturing your wedding weekend story. We are building a friendship, not just checking off a vendor. And when all is said and done, you will look back on your images in AWW and relive that magical day again and again and again.
This is not work for me. It's in my bones.
