While I've been a professional photographer for the past 4 years, I un-officially started back in freshman year of high school taking photos of friends and family members.
My love for photography started at the age of 9, thanks to my mom and our family's mini farm. I used to take our little family camera outside to capture pictures of our chickens, cats, goats, ponies, and dogs.
Eventually my mom upgraded to her Canon 60d and I upgraded to capturing people and moments while "borrowing" her family's!
Now a full fledged professional I work at capturing weddings, engagements, portraits, and familys!
I love being able to stop time in the form of imprinting light into a digital file and creating a physical product that forever preserves someone's experience and memory during an important time in their life.
I loved her ability to get us to feel at ease in front of the camera, to really be ourselves. Her patience and professionalism is amazing. She takes the time to get to know you. This is NOT a one size fits all experience! We were able to work out expectations, a plan for our photishoot, which included helpung us plan our outfits, and poses. What was delivered was beyond our expectations!!
They fill out my contact form, I send my pricing brochure for them to look over and select the best package that fits their needs, we video call or meet in person, they book that package and we start the countdown to their wedding day or portrait session.
Countless hours of in-field experience, Online research, Training received from notable names such as Amy & Jordan Photography, Nancy Jo Photography, Katelyn James Photography, and Heather Chesky Photography.
My Mom, she inspired me from the young age of 9yo to pick up a camera and capture memories. I began with our small farm life and slowly built experience through working with other photographers expanding to portraits and weddings over time.
Big families, Small families, High-end weddings, Small and Large weddings, People with pets, Maternity, Destination weddings across the country, Cultural and diverse weddings, Mixed Couples, and more!
Mya and Manny's Wedding! They are a beautiful Mexican American Couple with a large extended family, they celebrated their wedding in December with their family, with cultural traditions including "El Baile de la Vibora" or "The Snake Dance" a Mexican Wedding Tradition where a congo line of the opposite sex tries to knock the bride or groom of a chair while the groom or bride has men or women hold them up to keep them from falling. Then the parents surprised the Newly Weds with a Mariachi Band to serenade them into their new life as Husband and Wife.
Don't just hire anyone, Photos of your day are a once-in-a-lifetime chance if someone misses that chance or fails to deliver what you wanted you will regret it forever. It's worth the money to hire a trustworthy and experienced photographer.
Depends on what they need photography for!
I think overall asking how long your photographer has been shooting for, what gear they use, if they have insurance, and if there are additional fees is a good place to start!
