What did you do before starting your business in the wedding industry?
I was a television producer for 20 years.
How long have you been in the wedding industry?
I’ve been in the wedding industry for 6 years.
How would you describe your style?
I’m very laid back and like to create a stress-free environment while giving my clients a high-touch experience that results in breathtaking and memorable images of their special day.
What motivates you?
Love. It may sound corny but there’s nothing like seeing two people tie the knot and then share that collective sigh when they realize, “we did it!”
Why should brides/grooms choose you?
I understand what it takes to produce great wedding photography, and I like to collaborate with my couples to achieve their vision.
How does your company define and measure success?
We define success when our couples are happy. Our goal is to make sure we deliver our best work to you.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
Meeting great people, collaborating and laughing with couples on their special days.
What’s the best compliment you’ve received for your work?
I love to hear that my work is amazing but the best compliment I’ve received is that I was kind and made my client feel heard. That is of the utmost importance to me. I want people to feel like I hear them, understand them, and will deliver my best work for them.
What are your business goals?
In addition to my current business, I am expanding into developing a course (stay tuned) and also collaborating with a high-touch wedding service for brides and grooms called Wedding Attache.
What’s your favorite part of the wedding industry?
It’s literally never a dull moment and I honestly wouldn’t change that for anything. I LOVE what I do.
Where do you find the most inspiration?
I find inspiration in art and content whether it’s visual or sonic. Everything informs my work. I’m like a sponge who absorbs and then applies all of the information I’ve collected over the years to my work. I’m also very inspired by my mom who is my rock. She came to this country to make a better life for herself and her children. I know that if she can do it, we all can.
Is there anything else you’d like our readers to know?
I love puppies, a good rose and travel. I can’t wait until we’re all safe enough to travel again.
