I am a professional photographer in the New York City area, specializing in event and studio photography. Many of my clients have been local small businesses in the Harlem community, but my audience includes individuals as well. From street photography to upscale weddings, I have been able to achieve a wide variety of experience in the creative industry, and would love to share that experience with you! I have a degree in Business Management, and over ten years of experience in customer service and hospitality, making me someone who is business minded, professional, and always focused on the satisfaction of the client!
I love Capturing Moments; it is the tagline of my business. I want those in front of my lens to live their life, and enjoy themselves while their doing it! The photographer is the person peacefully (or aggressively) snapping away, freezing moments in time, while others get to experience the moment, without having to worry about capturing it themselves. Seeing the expression on the face of my clients satisfies me exponentially, and I would love nothing more than to display their moments, artistically, in high resolution!
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
My goodness, I've done so many different types of shoots! One of my most memorable was a wedding in Florida, where the couple had eloped, and I was to follow them around for two days (before, during and after the ceremony)! I was able to get some of the most intimate shots you could imagine. I made this moment special for them by capturing them in their natural element, taking pictures of sentimental items and moments, and tying everything together artistically.
There are so many moments I can share, but this one in particular stands out because of what it meant to the newlyweds afterwards. I'm told it took two months to review the photos because they couldn't stop crying.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
Do Instagram likes count? JUST KIDDING!!! None so far, but looking forward to it in the near future.
A fun fact about this photographer
In fourth grade, I learned a bit of Japanese. Very random, and only fun when I greet someone who is fluent with Ohayōgozaimasu!
