WHO I AM
After wedding weekends, I crawl into bed in a moonlit room, careful not to wake the sleeping husband next to me, I take a deep breath, and I thank God for the best job in the world.
I photographed my first wedding when I was a sophomore in high school (yup, you read that right). Years before, Sony Cybershot in hand, I fell in love with photography. A full hard drive later (sorry, Dad!), I saved to finally get the camera I had been dreaming of.
College came, I married my best friend (cue all the bubbly), graduated with an engineering degree and worked in the corporate world.
After a couple years of working full-time and still pursuing photography, I was convinced that a change was required. So, I decided to go all with where it all began - photography. With over 60 weddings that I’ve been trusted to photograph, they just keep getting sweeter and sweeter.
