I specialize in romantic and artistic wedding portraiture and studio photography with a hint of modernity. I love to take pictures of people & I’m very friendly with them. My goal is to show the beauty, grace, strength and enthusiasm of people.
I started photography when I was at 16. But during that time I didn’t know how creative I was with my photography. I have the power to see the beauty. Now I feel really lucky because my hobby is now my profession.
Picking up a camera gives me an opportunity to capture a specific vision to share with others. Ultimately, a well captured image represents a moment in time that is expressed infinitely, and that’s enough of a reason for me to hang a camera around my shoulders wherever I go.
I always shoot in RAW and in manual mode. All of my post-processing is done in both Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. As an artist, the biggest favor I ever did myself was stop comparing my work to that of others, and rather than trying to mimic the editing style of someone else-creating color combinations that combined all my favorite things into one custom look. A mixture of rich, hazy, matte and muted.
Life is really busy, but I enjoy singing, playing guitar and hanging out with friends in my free time.
