Tell us about your studio, style and approach:

I have a home studio these days. Today’s bride and groom love the ease of communicating online. There are many emails and Skype meetings as opposed to years past when I would meet clients at my brick and mortar. I have a very laid back approach in relation to interacting while shooting. I want the bride and groom to feel relaxed in all aspects. From our initial meeting to the day of their wedding.

If you had to sum up your style in 1-2 sentences, what would you say.

I mix a little bit of lifestyle shots and some photojournalism with a sprinkle of fine art. My approach is to maintain the right mix yet still remain me!

How do you ensure you have a sustainable business?

Consistency! Ensuring I'm meeting all of my clients needs. Cohesiveness throughout all my media platforms enables me to maintain a clear brand. Networking in person and keeping strong relationships with vendors.

What are your best selling products? do you sell in person? Tell us about your sales process:

I would have to say enlargements. I also offer matted prints which clients really love. All they have to do is pop them into their favorite frame. Sometimes with the right client I refer to this quote, "We are in danger of having a whole generation that has no family albums, because people just leave them on their computer, and then suddenly they will be deleted." - Martin Parr, Magnum Photographer. I think it helps them understand the tangible quality of memory keeping.

When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.

There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.

I am beyond grateful I get to photograph intimate destination weddings and elopements all over the world. Besides traveling for photography work, exploring new places with my husband has become a big part of our marriage and something we want to continue for the rest of our lives. My husband’s grandparents are our biggest idols. They have spent over 50 years married, traveling the world together, continuing to explore new places together. Their passion for traveling has led them to occasionally taking their entire family on vacation, most often to an exotic beach of their choice; a tradition we hope to be able continue one day in their honor.
