When I was in high school I took a photography Class, in which I failed miserably. Constantly I visualized my surroundings as beautiful artwork, and I couldn’t accept the fact that I wasn’t a photographer.
I took a job in graphic design and also had studied graphic arts at the Academy of Arts in San Francisco. I also attended a photography class at the Academy of Arts where I was then inspired not to give up on my dream of being a photographer.
I purchased my first SLR Camera and became obsessed with nature photography. I just had to capture those moments that you see and can only try to hold on to: the sun, the trees, the beautiful flowers, I just had to capture every sunrise and sunset. All of natures abstracts called to me every where I went. Sometimes I would be driving through the country (or the city) and my passenger would say, “Hey! Pay attention to the road” because I was so focused on the beauty around me. I can’t believe that these things go unseen, but anyways back to my story.
There was so much to see in nature but I knew that there were more beautiful images to take but where were they? I thought long and hard about this question and I began to realize that there is nothing more beautiful than the human experience. Life… every single moment that we experience is precious and should be cherished. I can capture with my Camera what only memories can hold.
I got back to school so that I could learn how to tell a story with each single image. I fully submerged myself in my work only to ask myself the question, “What story am I going to tell?” There are many wonderful experiences that a person can have but the one that stood out to me the most was Gods union between a man and
a women. Marriage!
I have found it, I have found my calling in life and that is to capture, hold on to and give the most blessed memories available to couples who decide to commit to a life
I love weddings. I show up to the most positive event in a person’s life. Everybody is glowing, excited, and happy to be there. The joy overflows to the point of tears being shed by men and women. I love capturing these moments. There is no stress in my job I love doing this!
