How did you get to where you are now?
I had always enjoyed photography as a hobby, but pursuing it as a career didn’t occur to me until after I got married. The experience we had with our wedding photographer was a lightbulb moment for me, so I dove in headfirst and haven’t looked back since.
What makes you or your business stand out and why should a couple hire you?
Your wedding day will be one of the most important events of your life. As your photographer, I will not only be there to capture the joy and emotion the day of. I focus on providing you with a complete experience from start to finish. I like to think of myself as your partner throughout the wedding planning process. I will ask all the right questions to make sure that nothing is missed when it comes to your photos. By the time your wedding day arrives, you will already know you are in good hands. All you have to do is enjoy the day and be present. I promise to take care of your memories as if they were my own.
