Photography has always been a passion of mine- ever since I took a photography class in high school. The darkroom was one of my favorite places to be. I'd always thought about making a career out of it, but kept it in the back of my mind since making it as a landscape photographer was near impossible. I'd never even considered doing wedding photography at the time. After graduating college with Chemistry and Psychology degrees, I worked for a few years in the Environmental field and just found that I was really unhappy in that career path. So in 2012, I began taking photos of friends and family on the side and quickly built my business to the point where I could leave my job to do photography full time. The insecurity of leaving a salaried job was scary, but the idea of not loving what I did every day was much scarier.
Since that first session in 2012, I have photographed about 100 weddings and countless families, gotten married myself, and had an amazing little girl that is the subject of many photo sessions! I take a limited number of weddings a year because it is important to me that all of my clients get a high-end experience and feel valued throughout the entire process and I don't want that or my home life to suffer. My favorite moments during the wedding day are the first looks! The first look with dad gets me EVERY. TIME. And a teary groom? I have to hold back tears of my own!
