My Photography Journey
When I was a kid, my family took a cross-country road trip to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Along the way, we made stops in many states, and I watched incredible scenery pass by through the windows of our cramped, hot car. My mother brought along her Kodak point-and-shoot camera to take pictures of the whole trip. But soon, I found a way to convince her to let me take pictures- a lot of pictures. While there, I saw intensely saturated and colorful hot springs, waterfalls, and many animals including a single black bear! It was on this trip that I discovered my love of photography.
For my 16th birthday, I asked my dad to get me my first camera. I wanted a DSLR, a camera which would allow me to have more control over my work. I found a used DSLR on Craigslist (A Canon 300D with 6.3 megapixels!), and my father took me to pick it up. It was love at first sight. I spent as much time as I could attending seminars, lectures, and practicing with this camera and further honed my craft. I spent a lot of time on photography critique sites, learning and improving. I brought my camera along with me to a family wedding and that is where I discovered what I loved to photograph most.
I soon upgraded to a Canon 40d, a mid-level camera which expanded my control. I shot more weddings, and fell even more in love with capturing emotions that were so pure, so honest, and so joyful. This is the love that keeps me working as a wedding photographer today.
Through college, I practiced my photography, exploring aspects of all types of photography including macro, long exposure, and complex portraiture. I attended classes on documentary film making, and worked on my college's TV production crew where I learned how to edit and direct both fictional and journalistic video.
I am now proud to continue offering my services and my vision to clients seeking the best photographer to help them remember their special day. I am a memory preservation specialist. I am a storyteller. I am a wedding photographer.
