My Story

I haven't really thought much into detail as to where I want this to go, so I am just going to start typing and hope something magical comes out! So, sit back and enjoy the journey!

I am a human, much like most of the beings reading this, I am complex, free-thinking, and very energetic. I love exploring, whether that is out in the world or just all in my head. I love reading, nothing makes me happier than waking up making a cup of tea and peeling open pages of something I know is going to inspire me to be the best version of myself. I am kind, thoughtful, passionate, and most of all compassionate. My favorite aspect of me is my love for humans. I think I love people more than anything in the world. I could sit with a stranger for hours just to hear them talk about themselves (ask anyone who has EVER worked with me). I love creating deep and meaningful connections with people, I truly believe that is what life is all about.

I love being outdoors and I make so much time to do just that! I bought a house right behind a mountain so I had no excuse to hike! When there is a mountain in your back yard you gotta know the trees by name.

 

I love boats and planes, and cars... I am best friends with my inner child. I love to go really fast (rollercoasters) and I love to do nothing at all (master meditator)/(really good at sleeping). I love being the hype man and I don't let people talking badly to themselves. It just isn't very nice. I will stand up for anyone who is being bullied or mistreated, I really don't like seeing people being mean.

Oh photography, I really like that...

The reason I started taking picture was *drum roll* to create meaningful connections with people. I love helping people feel confident and powerful. Showing them what I see lights me up! The reason I chose wedding photography is because a) weddings are just beautiful. b) documenting two people dedicate themselves to each other literally sets my soul on fire. I can't tell you how many times I have heard "Wedding photographer, Are you crazy!?!?" "That's so hard!" "That's so much work!" Yes, I am pretty crazy, but aren't we all? I know it is so much work, but at the same time it is so rewarding! Capturing all of the emotions! All the laughs, tears, and smiles!! I wouldn't trade it for the world!

Now this is looking less let an autobiography and more like a dating profile...

I am me, overly confident and overly caffeinated. I am open-minded and open-hearted; I will try to do and learn everything this beautiful world has to offer! Join me in making the world a better place.
