This is exactly how photography makes me feel. When I am creating art, an electric feeling spreads through my body and my heart feels content.
As someone who had a hard time expressing themselves as a kid, I found photography to be an easy outlet in which to share my love and joy for the world. Each image is a representation of some part of me. It is the medium in which I express my creativity, emotion, and connection to people, places and moments.
I have always been a visual person. I see the world in light, shape, design and composition. Goosebumps appear when I know I have captured something profound, telling me that this art of photography is always going to be a huge part of my life.
Combined with the opportunity to serve others on their wedding day, to share my gift, is a great honor. At every wedding, I am there to capture people in the most expressive, authentic version of themselves. I see it as my gift to create a safe place where this can happen so that precious moments are remembered for many years to come.
Photography is my art. Being of service brings me joy.
Weaving these together gives me great purpose.
