Romantic Wedding Photography
First job you ever landed
My first paid photography job was photographing a donut ice cream sandwich – it was pretty delicious.
What brought you to the wedding industry?
I’ve always had a little obsession with weddings in general since I was a little girl – once I was asked to photograph a wedding, there was no turning back!
A lesson you’ve learned the hard way in the wedding industry
The biggest lesson I’ve learned the hard way is making genuine, authentic friendships with vendors takes time – it doesn’t happen automatically. At this point in my business, I put A LOT of effort into building relationships and maintaining current ones.
Favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon
Definitely hiking in the mountains if it’s sunny – Netflix marathon if the weather is poor.
Best piece of advice to someone new to the wedding industry
Be nice. Saying please and thank you, doing favors + going above and beyond goes such a long way. Don’t underestimate the power of being thoughtful.
Best piece of planning advice to a new bride
You don’t have to know all the answers right now. Hire an amazing wedding team and your planning will be so much better + easier.
Some words you live by
Stand up for what you believe in.
Best tip for balancing work + home life
Scheduling! The better you become at dedicating time to specific tasks, the more you will get done and the less you will over-work.
Best moment of your career
There are so many! The best moments happen when I receive super positive feedback from clients. I love hearing that I served them well.
Netflix, chocolate and Taylor Swift.
