I started getting into photography when I moved from Seattle to continue my education in computer science at UWM. While waiting for the fall semester to start, I purchased a nice camera to take along on adventures to national parks around the United States. I instantly became addicted to photography and improving my skill. I brought my camera EVERYWHERE with me. Not too long after camping at a few national parks and posting my images online, Sheryl and Adam asked me if I was interested in tagging along to a wedding. I never thought of photography being a career and definitely wouldn’t have thought about shooting in the fast-paced world of weddings. It was just an insanely passionate hobby and weddings sounded very stressful from others in the industry that I’d spoken with. But I decided to give it a shot and instantly fell in love with it. The ability to capture the happiness and raw emotions made it exciting for me, not hard work or stressful at all! I couldn’t wait to shoot my second wedding and continue this journey.
Five years later and each wedding is just as exciting as the first. I get to celebrate the happiest day of two families coming together and I couldn’t picture a better career! It’s so much fun learning about each couple and their families – it really adds to the story behind the photos.
