I get asked a lot “What sets you apart from other companies?” It’s not an easy question to answer. My answer, and probably my favorite part about my business is — we get to be friends! From your first inquiry, to your engagement session to finalizing your wedding day timeline, I am the face of my business. All of your questions are answered by me, all of your photos are taken by me. And the best part is, I started in the photo industry photographing primarily family and newborn work. I get to come full circle with all of my clients, from your first “yes” to your first days as mommy and daddy and all of the life adventures thereafter. Building life long friendships and capturing your forever is what makes my heart happy.
The Wedding Industry
The wedding industry is a whirlwind! I started in the industry almost on accident. Answering craigslist ads and trying to pave my own way in the photography world. I was sure I’d never shoot a wedding, until I actually did. Being such a big part of someone’s wedding day isn’t scary, it’s an absolute honor.
The Wedding Memories
It would be impossible for me to pick out one sole favorite memory or wedding. Every wedding is different yet every wedding is beautiful. One thing that stands out about weddings in general is the overwhelming amount of love I get to witness. I get to watch couples so in love shaking with anticipation. The beat of my heart slows as I watch a mom look into her sons eyes beaming with pride at the man he has become. I cry with my dads as they dance with their little girl. Chills during vows and toasts. Happy tears all day long!
I may be a photographer but I am your go to girl when it comes to easing the stress and pressure of your day. I’m going to ask you a million questions about addresses and timelines. I map out and double check travel times. I allot extra extra time knowing perfectly well something may run late or you just may need a break! I’m going to suggest times for hair and make up to be done. I’m going to suggest times for departure and arrival. I’m going to work with you to build a timeline that’s going to make sure you have no added stress on your wedding day.
Owning my own company never was a priority for me. It kind of just happened. I started an Instagram at the suggestion of my boyfriend. And that was that! Inquiries came strolling in and I started booking up. I’m proud of the company I’m building and I can’t thank my clients enough for that. Just by sharing my work my clients are sharing my name.
When I’m not shooting you can bet I’m editing! As well as doing all of my own shooting, I edit everything myself. When I’m taking a picture I always have a vision for the final image. I love the post processing part of my job and taking a pretty image and making it that much more pretty! When I do sneak away from my computer, I’m probably cooking or eating because who doesn’t love food. & the best and worst part about me is my love for chocolate.
