Photos and videos were always a big part of my childhood. My parents and grandparents always had a camera or a camcorder with them to make sure all the big moments in our family were captured. We would always look back on those memories we made together and make scrapbooks or small in-home videos on iMovie. I didn’t realize how much I valued this until recently.
My interest for photography didn’t begin until my during my senior year of college. My parents bought me a DSLR for my internship and I had no idea how to use the dang thing. BUTTTT I had a friend who had her own photography business so I asked her to teach me the basics of shooting and editing (u rock Sarah E. Photo). I fell in love with the art pretty quickly. I didn’t realize how much I needed a creative outlet in my life. A place where I could let go, have fun, and express myself.
Two-ish years later and I’m still taking tons of pictures and having a good freakin’ time doing it. I’m extremely grateful for all the people who have poured into me over the last few years. I wouldn’t be here without them, their words of encouragement, and their constant support. If you were to tell me I was going to be a wedding photographer the beginning of my senior year in college, I would have freaking laughed in your face. But here we are and I’m not mad about it. I’ve had the chance to travel to some rad places and have been given the opportunity to capture some freakin’ sweet memories.
With all that said, lets keep this bumpin’ time going and be friends.
