Thank you so much for considering me as your photographer.
Taking pictures is in my blood. It started with my grandfather, an award winning photographer and outdoor adventurer. It was passed to my uncle, a classic photojournalist for a major newspaper, as well as an amazing studio photographer. This skill for photography has now passed down to me. I am a photographer who documents events and people with a style that combines modern photojournalism and traditional posed images, in order to preserve these memories for your own enjoyment, and for the generations that follow you.
Photography became a passion for me at a young age. I purchased my first camera when I was about 12 years old after saving diligently. I was ecstatic when I finally had my Pentax K-1000 in my hands! That camera was a rock and I loved it. I remember experimenting with long exposures while swirling lights around to create an image, getting up close to my subjects at funky angles to get artistic shots, and just taking pictures of things and people I found interesting or beautiful. The technology has changed by leaps and bounds since my first camera, and I am constantly updating my equipment to keep up with current trends and camera capabilities. This allows me to maintain the quality of images that my clients expect. I use only professional series cameras and lenses now days, a far cry from when I was 12 years old! What has not changed is my passion for creative, fun, and interesting photography.
As you have read, my joy and passion is photography and I know you will feel this when we first meet. I love hearing about the plans you have for your wedding or portrait session, and you will notice that my mind will start to go into overdrive creating ideas for photographing your day in a way that will capture what most represents YOU. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
