I'm so excited to write this! Swapping and sharing stories with people is one of the best parts about my job. So I wanted to take the opportunity to share a little snapshot of my life in hopes that we meet and I get to hear yours!
My Work life:
At the ripe age of 18, I started my path to become a professional photographer. The first big step... a bachelor's degree. I enrolled at the Art Institute of Indianapolis for Digital Photography, and 3.5 years later I was walking across the stage accepting my diploma.
Shortly thereafter, I shot my first wedding. I was terrified. But that day affirmed two things for me: One, that becoming a photographer was absolutely the right move. Two, weddings were the perfect combination of everything I loved shooting and that it was what I wanted to center everything around.
I've never thought twice about it. I have just known since then that it was perfect for me. I mean, I get to hang out with awesome people for a day, shoot a mixture of fashion, still life, photojournalism, editorial, and makes new friends who are like minded and love what I do. Who else gets to do that at their job!?
My Home Life:
I have two kids. Both have four legs and enough fur to keep your vaccuum busy for a lifetime. Their names are Edie and Winnie. We are the happiest of little families.
I like to think I get along with just about everyone, but my favorite couples are: down-to-earth, love to have fun, laid-back, enjoy having a good laugh, love each other, detail oriented, they have a pet (dog person here) or love animals, can't eat enough good local food, and above all, they love to joke.
It also doesn't hurt if they like watching Parks and Rec, Arrested Development, The Office, Friends or Game of Thrones while drinking a good cup of coffee or locally brewed beer or wine. Because those are all my favorite things.
Want to chat in person? Let's meet up, grab a drink, and talk about how to make your wedding day as amazing as you already are.
