MY PROCESS

AFTER OUR PHOTO SHOOT I START SORTING THROUGH MY FAVORITES, EDIT THEM, THEN SEND YOU SOME SNEAK PEEKS! IT TAKES ME ABOUT 2-3 WEEKS TO EDIT A PORTRAIT SESSION AND 5-6 WEEKS TO FINISH A WEDDING. I USE AN ONLINE GALLERY TO DELIVER PHOTO ALBUMS.

MAKING SOME MAGIC

I USE MY OWN PRESETS THAT I CREATED EARLIER THIS YEAR. I WOULD DESCRIBE MY LOOK AS MOODY, SOFT, AND ROMANTIC. I LIKE TO EDIT OUT SOME BLUE IN MY PHOTOS AND REALLY WARM UP THE GREEN TONES.

WHY YOU WILL WANT ME TO BE THERE.

I FREAKING LOVE WHAT I DO. I ALSO REALLY FREAKING LOVE MY CLIENTS. SEE THAT PRETTY GIRL IN THAT PHOTO? I CRIED WATCHING HER WALK DOWN THE AISLE. WHY? BECAUSE I CARE SO DEEPLY ABOUT HER AND HOW MUCH THAT DAY MEANS TO HER, HER HUBBY, FAMILY, AND FRIENDS. IT WAS FINALY HAPPENING, THEY WE’RE GETTING MARRIED. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. I GET TO KNOW MY CLIENTS IN SUCH A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME AND GET TO SPEND ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY OF THIER LIVES WITH THEM. GUYS, THATS A BIG DEAL AND I’M STUPID LUCKY TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT. I HAVE 4 PLUS YEARS OF WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE AND 6 PLUS YEARS WITH PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE. YES, I’M STILL GROWING AS A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BUT I HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE. THAT BEING SAID, I AM VERY OPEN ABOUT STILL WANTING TO LEARN. I GO TO WORKSHOPS, MENTORSHIPS, CLASSES, AND SHOOTOUTS BECAUSE I WANT TO BE THE BEST AT WHAT I DO. AND I WANT TO BE THE BEST FOR YOU. ALSO, I CAN BE PRETTY FREAKING FUNNY AND AN EXCELLENT WEDDING GUEST. IT’S KIND OF SCARY HOW CALM AND RELAXED I CAN BE AT EVENTS. I MEAN, DON’T GET MY WRONG. IT’S GOOD THAT I’M LIKE THAT FOR MY LINE OF WORK BUT I ALWAYS SURPRISE MYSELF. TO ME, I’M THE MOST ANXIOUS/ANNOYING PERSON I KNOW BUT WHEN IT COMES TO WORKING I BUCKLE DOWN AND GET SHIT DONE.
