Tell us a little bit about yourself.
In 2005, I picked up my first digital camera. Fast forward to 2012, a close friend was starting up her own photography business and asked me to model. Since then, I’ve worked closely with many other photographers learning different modeling techniques and how to make the human figure flattering at all angles.
In 2014, I decided that I wanted to be behind the camera instead of in front of it. I started teaching myself portrait photography: spending countless hours watching YouTube tutorials, online seminars, joining the local photography club, attending different workshops and working with different photographers as mentors. I started out doing landscape/nature/macro photography – basically anything that wasn’t human, I was taking photos of it. Over the past year, I’ve branched out into all aspects of the photography world. I would have to say that my passion is for photographing newborns, families and weddings.
How long have you been in the business?
I have two year’s experience in portraiture photography and just started offering weddings in 2016.
How would you describe your photography style?
That’s a hard one. I would probably describe my images as having a mixture of editorial and natural look to them, with a mix of photo-journalistic and candid photos along the way. My main goal is to tell the story of your wedding day from start to finish in the most unobtrusive manner possible.
How far in advance do clients need to book with you?
I would suggest at least 6 to 8 months in advance.
What type of equipment do you use?
I use a Canon Rebel T3 as well as a Canon 60D. I use a mixture of fixed focal length and telezoom lens. I also have constant stream lights for my photo booths as well as speedlights for off camera flash with the ability to be triggered remotely.
How long after the wedding do clients get the proofs?
I will have a teaser up of usually 3 to 5 images within 5 days. The remaining images take 8 to 10 weeks to have back to you.
What was the craziest wedding you have ever done?
I haven’t really had a “crazy” wedding. I’ve done crazy long weddings where the Catholic service was done in two languages so it was essentially two Catholic ceremonies in one. That takes the cake for now!
Do you do photography for a living?
At this point, I don’t. I would love to and in time, I aspire to do it full time.
What inspired you to become a photographer?
For me, telling stories and helping others tell the stories of their lives for years to come is what inspired me. Being able to capture the memories that you’ll never forget.
Name a song that would be on the soundtrack of your life.
