Here are the basics about ME:
I lived Peachtree City, Georgia until I was 19, and then I received the best birthday present ever. I was given a trip to Key Largo, FL to get my Open Water Scuba Diver Certification. It was on that trip that I fell in love with my scuba instructor (aka my husband), packed up my bags and moved to Key Largo with my cousin/bff/partner-in-crime, Megan. I lived there for about 5 years, and just came back to Georgia a couple years ago.
I started with photography when I worked at a Dolphin Facility in Key Largo. I discovered a strong interest and passion for it during my time there, and continued to take photos for friends and family ever since. Last May, I married my wonderful husband, and found that I really fell in love with the whole wedding thing. The excitement, family, love, and raw emotion on "The Big Day" is just indescribable . Not only did I get married last year, but my hubby and I bought a house, I started drinking coffee daily, reading the news, and paying attention to politics. .....aka.... beginning my official "grown up" life. I figured since everything else in my life was falling into place, It was a good time to follow my two passions: people and pictures. I formed my photography business based around those two simple passions, and hope to connect with people and provide them with images that make them smile.
Your wedding may only last a few hours, but each second of your big day, you experience the moments which will soon be a memory. I would be honored to be a part of those moments, and capture them so that you and your family may remember the beauty of them forever.
To me, the real art of photographing people is a detailed formula; a formula that begins with forming genuine relationships, understanding someone's personal style, and catching what occurs during those unplanned little moments in time. Through getting to know you, I learn to recognize those little moments, and document them in a way that is a true reflection of you and your LIFE.
