I have 4 goals for every customer’s experience with me:
I want your photos be like looking in a mirror (but obviously retouched a little because it’s your special day and details matter ;). Recognizing yourself and your love in my photos is one of my number one goals! I hope you’ll feel represented when you look at them.
Love + Care
As my client I want you to feel love and care. That means feeling heard, seen, and like everything is done with you in mind.
Best of the Best
I only want the best of the best for you! That goes from changing poses if they don’t look right to me all the way to culling photos so you only get photos that you will love and be able to use easily (i.e. printing, sharing online, etc.). Only the best!
Last but not least, I want you to have a memorable experience with me! I want you to have fun, feel the love between you, and laugh a whole lot. I love laughing 😊.
more about me
I love color and colorful photos! I don’t like shying away from color or muting it in any way. I probably like color so much because I love Disney and went to Disneyland often as a kid. I am also a huge fan of animation in general. Every show I am a huge fan of is colorful, think Howl’s Moving Castle, Avatar the Last Airbender,
Bob’s Burgers, etc!
Music influences me a lot but as a person who’s extremely visual, music videos have always had my whole heart. Combining my love of music with a visual concept is everything to me-especially when it’s done right. My love for music videos also increased my obsession with directors (check out anything by Daniel Cloud Campos). I’ve always dreamed of becoming a director because I love directing people and overall visuals. I understand and have such an appreciation for details like lighting, composition, and subtleties in visuals. This shows through my work often, especially since I’m already detail oriented 😂.
Some other things I’m inspired by/love are: my SO (because he made me love love more than I ever thought possible 😊), anything and everything drag, Christine and The Queens (my favorite artist), Audrey Hepburn, and figure skating which I did for 9 years of my life!
