What motivated you to become a photographer?
I started shooting family sessions and portrait sessions which led to several small wedding opportunities for family members. I previously worked as a designer and several different architecture firms. After a few years, I started getting so busy with photography that I made a leap of faith and have been a full-time wedding photographer for 5 years now.
What is it that you try to convey with your work?
For weddings, I try to convey the story of a wonderfully special day between two families. I like to document these moments for them to share and remember for the rest of their lives.
How do you accomplish that?
I accomplish that by documenting every little detail of a wedding. The smiles, the tears, the love that is shared with one another. I try to capture little things that will be forgotten after that day but will remain with them forever. It’s all part of their story.
Have you had a photographer inspire your work, and if so, who and why?
There are many talented inspiring photographers that have influenced my photography. One that stands out to me the most is Mike Colon. I have always appreciated his style, personality and his love for helping other photographers learn the business.
What is your most memorable accomplishment so far in your photography career?
My greatest accomplishments happen every time a client tells me how happy they are with the images that I produce.
What is one thing you have learned during your career?
Do what makes you happy.
