Photography came to me at a time when I needed it most – it was like walking right into what I was created to do, only I had no idea that’s what I was heading into. It fit me, my personality, and my strengths. It had me constantly thinking, changing, growing and it makes me feel alive to know that tomorrow will never be the same as today. I firmly believe each person was created to use their specific abilities and passions to bless others, no matter the industry, I am certain this is mine. I went after it full steam, no questions asked, not a shred of a doubt. It’s who I am, feeds me, and inspires me. Like a good marriage, photographer has only made me a better, stronger, more gracious person. I will never not be a photographer, not on any day of my life, not in any moment, not ever.
Expressing The Courage
Now, almost 15 years in the industry, I’m in a good spot, like when you get to that secure spot in a relationship. I know what I’m really good at, I’m confident in what I bring and the contribution I bring to your day and shoot.
Many people don’t realize the impact the photographer has on not only your wedding day, but how you feel, the energy present while you shoot and the confidence you feel in yourself. Do they make pretty pictures, sure? But how do they make you feel? Do they give you direction and make you feel like you own the world? Do they give you an experience and make you feel special and not one of their couples? This is what I feel so confident in and know that impacts my couples in a powerful way.
Let's Shoot The Moments
To me, there’s a right client and it’s not everyone. I’m really looking to work with people who want to create as much as I do. It’s a two way street….not just hire and expect. It’s when I really create magical things. I will always stay true to my style and the creativity that I’m drawn to in photography. I want to capture who you really are and in natural lighting – you know, the kind God created. I’m drawn to people with an edge, people want something interesting and beautiful. I’m about quality, not quantity. I only take on a certain number of weddings so that I show up with excitement and passion. I want to make something you want to look twice at.
I bring joy and true passion for creativity to what I do, an addiction to perfection and pull to create things I have yet to do. I want to get to know you. You’re not a number or just a photo package. I’m not about filling up my calendar with “shoots” but days i get to create art and have a really good time doing it. I am about the experience. This is about stories, it’s not just about pictures. I want to make art, I want to feel something for what I create. And that’s always my aim.
Let’s shoot some good inspired moments.
