I believe that the camera is the best thing ever invented. It captures actual moments, memories, emotions and unites forever the person who took the photo with the person in it. Which is why I love it when the clients become my friends.
I’ve been taking Selfies before there was a song!!!!
I’m not afraid to climb on things to get a great shot.
Directing large groups? No problem. I’m a middle school teacher… so bridal parties…no difference. I got this!
People say I’m funny… but I know I’m just funny looking.
I’m fashionably ready to go… borrowed the purse and sunglasses from the mother of the groom.
(Yes… I gave them back.)
I admit. I lie around on the job a lot.
I have some amazing dance moves. (Um…yeah.. I’m lot better at taking pictures than I am at dancing. )
My hair is always a mess at the end of the night, but I’m not the one in the pictures so it’s okay… (Please tell me, it’s okay.)
Hmm… other stuff you should know…
“I am the self proclaimed ruler of a non existent empire!” I have three multiple personalities- Me, Myself and I. My favorite sound in the world is hearing my nephew and niece laugh. Jacaranda trees are incredible because they are purple and different… kind of like me, except I’m not purple…just different
And I have a new puppy named Buddy who will bark at you, but then realize you are awesome. He’s a Dachshund and he’s getting bigger… I mean longer every day. Yes. He’s a rescue. He was the runt, had one ear slightly longer than the other so he was left… They didn’t realize his love was priceless.
Buddy has a brother and a sister cat. Good luck on seeing the gray one but the black one will greet you at the door and stay throughout our meeting. (Yup.. I’m not superstitious.)
And I miss our baby Nemo who loved everybody.
I love my husband because he gets me and I am thankful for all the love and blessings in my life.
Want to meet my friends, the other photographers who help me out? Keep Scrolling.
Tyler Wadsworth: He’s been with me since almost the beginning. I was once a Maid of Honor in a wedding (okay fine… matron of honor… whatever) and he was the guy I called to take pictures while I was busy and thankfully he stayed. He is my first second photographer. Usually, while I am working with the bride getting ready, he’s having fun with the guys and then we come together and make sure to capture different angles. He is genius at finding, “light,” and creating artistic images but he can also beat you at any video game.
Stephanie Arellanes: Stephanie came into my life via Email and a cup of coffee. She’s one of those people that loves love and somehow found me online and liked how I enjoyed my work and the relationship I had with my clients. She wanted in. I met with her and ruled her out as a stalker and instead claimed her as my PBF (Photography Best Friend.) Stephanie works as a second shooter or as an assistant… that is when she is available. She began her own business Save the Date Photography.
Theres’s love story behind the scenes going on… Stephanie and Jesse are a couple. Jesse works as my assistant usually with Tyler.
Jackie was once my bride. I captured her wedding story and for some reason she wanted to keep hanging out with me. She carries lenses, holds reflectors, takes care of our equipment.
