I always thought I wanted to be a wedding or event planner not a photographer. I hated getting my photo taken as a kid. I grew up attending my fair share of weddings coming from a large Italian/ Irish family.
I got into photography in high school when I joined the school paper as a requirement to be on staff was to take photos at school events. Come to the end of my sophomore year my mom had me take my sisters senior photos, apparently they weren't too horrendous her friends even asked and I said I can do my best. Then families started to reach out and its grown from there.
I graduated and went to college on a partial photography scholarship. It was my junior year of college when I started to take on weddings. The first wedding I ever photographed was on April Fools Day. The couple had convinced their friends and family they were attending an engagement party, in reality they were attending the wedding..
My love for weddings is always there, but the families that become friends that I meet at weddings are truly what make the days memorable. Getting to be a wedding photographer is honor, getting to be a lifetime photographer is what I hope to achieve. I don't want you just for your wedding but for when you have kids, buy that house, send out Christmas cards, get a pet, or your parents or in laws have been begging for updated family photos, I am here for a good time and a long time.
