I fell in love with photography when I received my first digital camera for my 20th birthday. I photographed everything from family pets to blades of grass. As my casual hobby transformed into a creative outlet, people became my preferred subjects.
While attending film school, I discovered a strong predilection towards cinematography—the art and science of motion-picture photography. There’s an indescribable pleasure in lighting and framing a shot that develops the narrative and scene. It requires a keen eye for lighting and composition, on-the-spot problem solving, and both a measure of foresight and quick decision-making. I carried this philosophy into my work as a wedding photographer.
