For those of you who want to know a little more about me and why I got into photography here’s a little tid bit.
I am a self-taught photographer. Since I was a teen I was always carrying a camera taking photos of just about anything. I took a few online photography classes and after that I was on my way. I photographed my first wedding in 2013. The bride was my best friend growing up and is still today, so she must have been happy with the photos :)
Something about weddings…..I have a faith based background and something about weddings just humbles me. The speeches the dad's give about their daughters, the personalized vows that make everyone laugh and cry all at the same time. So much love and energy in one day, I just absolutely love being surrounded by it. I love capturing all the details from the smallest of things, to the special moments, and all the fun in between.
What I love most about being a photographer is having my clients become more like family. Life is busy and staying in touch with friends and family is hard. Year after year I get to enjoy seeing some of my faithful clients come back to me for more photos. In a way I get to watch them grow and change with each season. For all of you, you see your kids every day and they change just a little bit each day that by the end of a year you can’t believe they have grown up right before your eyes. It’s like you blinked and …. well, what happened!? for me I get to see it almost instantly between just a couple photo sessions a year.
Why do I do it? I love when you LOVE your photos! When you get your photos and I get a text almost instantly …. “OMG I LOVE THEM!!” … well that right there is the cherry on the sundae, the frosting on the cake, the inspiration that keeps me going.
The moments that I've captured are memories that will last a lifetime. Everyone views a photograph a little differently. But there is one view that we all share. When we lose someone special in our lives that photograph holds those memories even closer. “Memories” is one of those words that just get to me. My Gramp lost his memories to Alzheimer's disease so when I get to capture certain really powerful or emotional moments I just know that that photograph is priceless. Even without that disease we all forget certain moments in our lives, but if I can capture it and bring that moment back to life for you years down the road then my goal has been accomplished.
