I have been calling this crazy town called Las Vegas my home since 2010. Prior to that, I was living in Boston, and before that, Washington, DC. I love it here so far, and that it is such a diverse city! I can drive to the Strip and eat dinner at a world-class restaurant, I can go hiking right outside of the city, and I can go snowboarding at Mt. Charleston, just 40 min from the city (yes and it gets real snow!).
I’ve been shooting weddings for 3 years now and I approach each wedding differently because each wedding is unique! Even if it’s the same location that I’ve shot multiple times, I always approach it with, “What can I do differently this time? What is going to wow my couples?” All my couples are different too, so I love brainstorming with my clients and creating a vision together that is meaningful to them. I really like to get to know my couples so they feel comfortable around me and in front of the camera.
10 things about me:
1.) I am an impulsive Facebook and Twitter checker.
2.) I have two sets of dimples on my cheeks.
3.) Orange is my favorite color.
4.) I’m on my second ereader. I read about a book a week.
5.) Las Vegas doesn’t really get that cold for boot weather but I love wearing them anyway.
6.) I like to document what I eat. I usually have more vacation pictures of food than famous landmarks.
7.) I probably watch more reality TV than I should.
8.) I love to turn up the radio and sing in the car.
9.) I have a turquoise betta fish names Smokey.
10.) I love playing soccer.
11.) I couldn’t resist adding in another one! I can’t contain my excitement sometimes so I use a ton of exclamation marks! Yay!!
For those of you interested, I am listing my gear below. If you have no clue, rest assured that I use professional equipment. I also carry liability insurance in case your venue requires it, and I back up my photos 3 different ways, so rest assured that your photos are safe with me!
