Though my love for photography and weddings began with my family (a love that has only become more ingrained now that I’ve begun a family of my own), it was the ever-growing circle of connection I found myself working in that really made me realize wedding photography was where I wanted to be. I know, I know, this is meant to be the “about me” section and so far I’ve only talked about family and other people, but I wouldn’t be doing what I do without the love I have for helping people capture those genuine moments of emotion and happiness. It might have started as requests from family and friends, but before I knew it I was getting to meet more amazing people than I ever thought I’d be lucky enough to meet. Not only that, I had the privilege of sharing in these momentous days that were so important to them, and making sure they had photos that captured the essence of their emotional intensity and celebration. Sure, an interesting backdrop, a magnificent piece of décor, or a lovely location can certainly be fun to photograph, but being in a position where it’s my job to help, work with, and get to know so many wonderful couples? That’s truly priceless.
