I feel truly blessed to be able to follow my dream of being a photographer. I absolutely LOVE what I do! From the time I picked up a camera, I was obsessed with taking pretty pictures. After 12 years, my focus has shifted… I have come to realize that one of the most important parts of my job is telling your story through my lens. If I’m photographing your wedding day, I focus on authentic, natural and real moments. If I’m photographing your senior pictures, your personality and inner beauty will shine through! These are the moments that you will forever cherish and remember. Welcome to the blog. I can’t wait for the opportunity to capture YOU and tell your story!
This past week, I was blessed to travel to Carmel, CA to attend the Walk Through A Wedding Workshop with Justin & Mary Marantz. If you are a wedding photographer, you know who they are, but if you aren’t.. they are one of the best husband/wife photographers in the wedding industry.
Every year, I invest in my business by carefully choosing workshops that will inspire my creativity and passion for photography and help me reset as a small business owner. I chose this specific workshop because Justin and Mary are not only one the most talented (and sweetest) wedding photography industry leaders but their approach for capturing timeless, authentic moments directly reflect my values and approach to weddings. I also love their approach to using flash in a way that doesn’t look unnatural or “flashy.”
The workshop took place at Folktale Winery & Vineyards in Carmel and although it was a little colder than I was expecting, the landscape and breathtaking beauty of Northern California and this gorgeous venue did not disappoint!
Attending this workshop was a great way to kick off the new year and check a huge item off my bucket list! Now wedding season can hurry up and get here so that I can apply on of this amazing new learning!!
A huge thank you to Justin & Mary Marantz as well as all of the participating vendors who worked hard to make the workshop run so well!!
