A Bit About Me As A Portrait Photographer
I started becoming interested in photography as a young child, and my curiosity and passion grew along with me. After shooting my first wedding, I was hooked. To put it simply, I’m in love . . . with love. When I’m photographing a wedding, I’m not just there to capture the event, I’m there to create a visual of your love story. And those little . . . “ordinary” moments – those are the ones that you won’t want to miss. The groom laughing with his groomsmen about their bachelor days before they don their tuxes, the father of bride with a tear in his eye after he gives his baby girl away, the grandmother who sits quietly with a gleam in her eye as she watches the newly married couple dance their first dance – they are all moments that vanish quickly, but ones that I hope to be able to give back to you in a photograph.
You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” -Ansel Adams
