I believe that the opportunity to tell someone's story through photography is the most wonderful, creative thing I can do to fulfill that unique mission. I also love it, and I feel like I'm where I'm supposed to be when I get to join you on a great day to capture happy memories.
Traveling is a huge part of my life and I have an constant desire to discover new people and places. I am an adventurer, and in my free time I'm usually seeking out a new swimming hole, fresh lake in the mountains, salty beach, or pool oasis. Yoga totally changed my life a few years ago, and it's how I find my peace. I also love riding my bike and recently my worlds have combined where I have the opportunity to photograph people in Philly, on bikes. It's a pretty cool project, you can check it out here: http://ibikephl.org Pretty much all things active and outdoor is right up my alley... add beautiful light, kind, open people, some great music, and I'm in my happy place.
I love to share my energy and pour it into my work. I love bright colors. I love meeting new people and making new friends. The shoot or wedding day is about enjoying the moment, giving time for creativity and exploring, and everything falls into place. I encourage the love and document the moments that are real. I love Philadelphia and I know it like the back of my hand since I've ridden my bike down every street for the past 10 years, but shooting in new places is what brings excitement to my work. To make a new beautiful image that I've never done before...that's what I want. I love photography, but I love people even more. I am motivated and inspired to be the visual storyteller you have been looking for.
