I believe everything in life should be documented. They say photography is a way of feeling, but to me, there are some moments you can't fully capture with words. Instead, you can preserve and relive them forever through photographs.
When I was deciding what I wanted to do with my life, I knew I wanted to do something special. To create art and give back to the community.I planted my roots in Philly. 15 years later, I have a Master's degree in Education, started a non-profit organization, married my best friend and now spend my free time obsessing over my son. My hobbies have changed over time but my passion remains the same and that is photography.
Documenting moments has always been something that was important to me. When I got engaged in Nov 2019, I knew I didn't want a long engagement. We decided on a date and had 6 months to plan. The first thing I did was research a photographer that matched my style and that would document my day the way I would another's. After some serious research, we had our photographers lined up and booked everything else we thought was necessary to make our day perfect. Little did I know Covid would ruin everything we had planned. But, despite it all, we were determined. May 2020, at the height of the pandemic, I married my best friend and the love of my life in the backyard of my father-in-law's beautiful home in Dresher, PA. It was the most perfect day. I was so thrilled that our photographers showed up for us that day. I look at our pictures from time to time and can't help but smile as I relive what had been one of the most important days of my life.14 months later, I now have an infant who all the more motivates me to document his life through my photography.
If I’m not shooting, I'm editing, working at a school, or spending time with my family. I never have idle hands. This is why I love photographing families, young children, and events. I thrive on the energy and the hustle and bustle of each event, whether big or one-on-one. I LOVE the challenge and enjoy meeting new people. When I'm older, I want to look back at my life say “I did what I loved and I don’t regret a thing.” I am pursuing my passion and truly found my calling.
