“As much as I love the many other types of work I do because they help me to learn about my craft, there is something about weddings that is incredibly special and fulfilling in a different way.”
1. How did you get into the wedding photography business?
“I have been a photographer for eight years and a wedding photographer specifically for six. Photography in general has given me many amazing experiences that allowed me to turn it into a career. I studied at University of North Carolina at Asheville and earned a BA concentrating in Photography. Most recently I participated in Arts Suzhou 2017 as an exhibiting artist at the Suzhou Culture and Arts Centre and a speaker at the global press conference in Suzhou, China. I will also be a presenter at the Alternative Process International Symposium in Santa Fe, New Mexico this September demonstrating my process of combining alternative process photography techniques. My photographs have been published in a number of print and online publications such as Sugar Hill & Suwanee Life Magazines, VoyageATL, The Southern Regional Honors Council, as well as a number of literary magazines. I also gave a TEDx talk on overcoming fears in artistic endeavors. I have exhibited photographs locally and internationally in the S. Tucker Cook Gallery, the YMI Cultural Center, Owen Hall Flood Gallery, the Jinji Lake Art Gallery, The Hudgens Center for the Arts, and the Highsmith Art and Intercultural Gallery. As much as I love the many other types of work I do because they help me to learn about my craft, there is something about weddings that is incredibly special and fulfilling in a different way. Each weekend I get to meet wonderful people in love on one of the most important days of their life- not many other professions include that perk!”

2. What do you enjoy about being a wedding photographer?

“My favorite thing about being a wedding photographer is being able to capture moments that my couples had not even imagined. I enjoy allowing couples to see themselves from a different perspective and it’s an honor being part of someone’s special day. I see it as an opportunity to help make wonderful memories that clients can look back on and show future generations. I want family and friends to look at your images and see your personality because you felt at ease with your photographer.”

3. What keeps you creative/inspired?

“When I am not photographing weddings or portrait sessions I am generally outside. I am passionate about traveling and teaching. I love national parks (I have been to ten so far!), photography inspired trips, books, and all mediums of art.”

4. What is one thing you would like every bride & groom to know before the wedding?

“Photos (and/or video!) will be the only thing you have to look back on in the business of such an important day! If at all possible, let your photographer take photos of that strange/awesome idea they pitched you thirty seconds ago! Chances are, it will turn into an incredibly unique shot and most likely a very good story to accompany the image that will make it worth it even though it seems like you have been smiling for hours.”

5. How has witnessing so many weddings impacted your life/outlook?

“Getting to see the love that couples show each other and their families is incredibly inspiring! It helps me focus on the important things- especially when you see people coming together from many walks of life to support the people they love.”
