My serious interest in photography began in 1987 with the birth of my first daughter. I tried to get good pictures of her with my point and shoot camera with no good results. In an effort to not let her grow up without documenting it through images, I purchased my first 35mm SLR film camera. I became obsessed about learning all I could about photography through self study and then got hired by a portrait photography company and acquired a good amount of on the job training and experience. In 1989-1990 I took a course in photography to further my learning. Over the years I have done many personal projects, during the 90's I found another interest in hand retouching photographic prints. Nowadays I work with 100% digital and of course have learned how to work in the "digital darkroom".
Why wedding photography? Before I decided to pursue wedding photography, I was working exclusively with my husband as a wedding DJ/emcee. I have become so accustomed to spending time helping couples plan their weddings and carrying out the duties on the wedding day that I couldn't wait to be the one taking the role of wedding photographer and the great part is most times I am still working with my husband as he handles the DJ/emcee/video responsibilities. We work well together and we both LOVE weddings. We also love watching stories and movies about how people have met and fell in love, we are suckers for romance. We have fun doing what we do and it shows. When we are not working, some of the things we love to do are roller-skate, ride bikes or just run around town together. Looking back at our own wedding, I only have one regret and that is that I did not hire a photographer, for both of us it was not our first wedding so I let our family members take pictures, none of which turned out how I had hoped, I am thankful however for the video.
I would love to talk to you about your wedding ideas and plans, give me a call so we can chat and get to know each other. I look forward to getting to know you and I hope you enjoy my images.
