As a creative, I am always trying to push the limits of my ideas. I have notebooks with sketches, words, print cut outs. I collect wedding magazines. I have notes on my phone, images saved. I have tons of Pinterest boards. I have IDEAS. But, it’s one thing to have ideas and quite another to have those ideas come to life. It isn’t easy (at least for me). It takes planning, timing, confidence, but mostly it takes me.
Planning my FIRST styled photo shoot was probably almost as stressful as planning a wedding! Months and months and some more months went into this shoot. I had to find a stylist. I had to find a hair and makeup artist. I had to find the location. And I had to coordinate all this on one day that worked for everyone involved, even Mother Nature, for my ideal shoot. I had to make sure my ideas of what I wanted showed and do this in front of fellow photographer and friend, Philitha, all the way down from CT.
From the very first wedding I second shot back in 2006 I have been stuck in awe of the bride on her wedding day. I have yet to photograph a wedding where the bride didn’t make me at least teary eyed at some point during the day.
I was born in Chicago, raised in Florida, but currently reside in Atlanta, GA (for the last 6 years anyway).
I love my family most.
I collect horror movies even though I am too scared to watch them (even in the daytime).
I placed in 3rd in a hot dog eating contest (3rd out of 3).
I have been in the Chattahoochee River more times this summer than any water (besides a pool) in my whole life.
I love to enter 5k's.
I love to read and knit (by knit I mean scarves and only one pattern).
I live by quotes.
I have 2 cats (Princess and Feliz) and a hermit crab (Hermies).
I want to take your picture.
I will show you what I see through the viewfinder.
