Something borrowed, something blue, something old, something new.... I want to be your something different!
Finding a way to combine my work and my art has been a goal of mine since I started out as a photographer. As an artist, there is a stigma that in order to create the art you love, you have to sacrifice making a living. I believe the term "starving artist" came from this idea. For me, surrendering to the term starving artist is not an option. Finding a way to hustle and push boundaries in an industry that is usually seen as pretty traditional has been a challenge I have embraced and learned to enjoy. It has been a very long journey that I am still on. Fear has punched me straight in the gut many times. I would find myself comparing my work to people I am nothing like. I would let myself feel defeated when I hadn't booked my goal number of weddings. Each time I gained valuable lessons and became better at my craft. I love being around love, this is why I chose wedding photography as my focus. I also believe that love is the language that art communicates. This is why I like to combine the two and make amazing art whenever I get the chance.
Over 20 years ago I loaded my first roll of film into a camera. Developing it and seeing the images I took come to life in a tray of chemicals was exhilarating for me. Though most of my professional work has been shot on digital, lately I kept getting this urge to return to my roots and shoot more film. That being said, I am looking for a fun couple to be part of my first all film wedding photography experience.

I share a studio space with Emily, who is also an artist. I asked if she and her husband Isaac would get back into their wedding clothes and experiment with me. I absolutely love the images we created together.
