I have been photographing snaps of my own life ever since I can remember and much before I knew how to “properly” use a camera. When I look at old pictures, I’m always surprised by how they transport me to a specific moment in my life. I can almost remember exactly how I felt at that time. I used to think I took those pictures to remind me of those moments. But, I learned that those pictures remind me of the amazing adventure my life has been.
I believe it is in our nature to celebrate love and life in ways that capture the emotion, the passion, the raw and true nature of our beings. We want to celebrate, cry, laugh, share, and toast for a brighter future.
I have always been drawn to journalistic and street photography because of the stories, the emotions and its perfect timing. They often break the standards of how we see and experience life and the world around us. I am drawn to little imperfections. I love the raw and the real. I love the mess and chaos. I love uncontrollable laughter as well as tears. I love slightly uncomfortable silent moments and glances people share.
These are the things that inspire me and I try to bring it into my wedding photography often. I want to tell stories that celebrate life and love in a way that feels genuine, emotional, and vulnerable. For the past 4 years, I have been photographing other people’s lives and I can only hope that my photographs will also someday remind them of the amazing adventure their life has been.
