I’ve always had a career in health—from stem-cell research to public health and, currently, as a nurse. But photography has gifted me a reinvigorating avenue for “snapping back” to a blissful reality. It’s an art form that, like my role in the world of healthcare, allows me to see people wholly and authentically—but in a much more celebratory and fun-filled way.
I got my start in photojournalism years and years ago, taking my first professional photography course at the age of 16—but when I found wedding photography specifically in 2015, I fell in immediate love with every aspect of it.
It’s getting to listen to the sweet stories your grandparents have to share about you. It’s watching your parents fight back tears as you walk down the aisle. It’s knowing everything I’m capturing on my camera is the culmination of so many defining moments and so much love.
Aside from always being guilty of crying at your reception speeches (it’s a guarantee), I love both the logistical-planning aspect of weddings and the opportunity to shoot your engagement session. The former allows me to geek out on a great timeline (it will save us all, trust me!)—and the latter allows us to get comfortable with each other in a way that makes for the most compelling images when your wedding day arrives.
