Why did you decide to become a photographer?

I fell in love with photography at a young age when my dad taught me to used a 35mm film camera. I then went to school for fine arts and studied film photography in which later transitioned into the digital world 20 years ago. I have this natural tendency to document moments everywhere I go, capturing couple’s stories through my perspective as it just felt so right to become a wedding photographer.

What is your favorite memory from an event you’ve photographed?

I’m a very sentimental person. During events, I like to capture things that are important to my clients. Whether it’s personal items, the couple’s first look, or a generations picture with bride, mom, and grandma (my favorite). Weddings are so special for the couple especially to capture photos of loved ones are timeless.

What is your favorite thing about being a photographer?

The people I get to meet! Not only do I enjoy getting to know the couple I’m photographing but I absolutely love meeting the family and taking their photos.

What makes your work stand out?

I try to utilize natural elements, anything useful in our surroundings, and focus on my subject in a variety of ways. I tend to have a more rich and vibrant palette to my images.

What is your favorite part of an event?

It’s hard to choose. It’s like reading a fairytale story where beginning to end makes it complete. (no pun intended)
But if I had to pick, I love the reception part. So fun to see happy faces and everyone celebrating. “Let’s eat cake!”

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I love arts and crafts. My favorite thing to make is wood burning leather and linocut printing.
