I love people. I love that when I take pictures it captures that specific moment in their timeline; whether it be two people in love sharing a joke or someone proudly throwing their graduation cap in the air. Life is all about these moments. At the time they seem to fly by, but with photography the moment can last forever.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done two engagement shoots, two graduations, and one wedding. The wedding was very special because it was my first major shoot besides the engagement. I was very fortunate that the couple allowed a novice like me to shoot their wedding, but they were thrilled with how the shots turned out. To make it special for them, I sat down with them to chat about every step to make sure they would receive all the photos they wanted. I also edited every photo that I could to give to them so they had every possible angel from their wedding to look back on forever.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
In 2012, I received first place overall in a Georgia Wildlife magazine photography contest.
