Documenting people in a fleeting moment is an incredible privilege and I'm beyond grateful for my ability to make folks feel comfortable to be themselves and see their inner and outer beauty. I've been working as a wedding photographer since I graduated from The Glasgow School of Art in Scotland, where I received my degree in Fine Art Photography. From there, I set forth on adventures of all kinds and have been endlessly in love with my profession.
Happiness. I think that's the most important and wonderful part, happiness. You can't do this job if you aren't. And I'm happy to say, I'm still ready to document the world and the beautiful people on it, one gig at a time. And experience. Experience is definitely a gift tenfold in this business. I've seen things I would have never seen without the adventures of photography.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
There was one shoot that I went definitely above and beyond for the couple, just because I love making someone's day as perfect as they imagine! They had a map themed engagement party and wanted to incorporate a map somehow. I gasped, as I had the perfect one.. a 1970s framed NATGEO map half the size of a wall. I spent around $200 renting a uhaul to make it happen, and it made for the funniest, craziest shoot, as we climbed an 80 rock at the beach with a gigantic map. It was hilarious. And totally, totally worth it. But all in all, I've done every kind of shoot you can imagine - weddings, family, newborns, events, galas, festivals, corporate events, you name it. I'll shoot anything!
