If you ask anyone who knew me growing up, they'd tell you about the stories I used to create. The notebooks full of tall tales, the hours I spent on an old computer crafting my next novella. Time passed, there were all of the normal growing-up things like dates and college classes, a shabby first apartment and somewhat less-shabby second and third apartments - trips to new places, seen through an inquiring mind. The creative in me itched to capture what I saw rather than what I wanted to see, to tell the story better than I could with words.
A camera was scrimped and saved for, and it clicked. It's hard to say how a shy little girl who fancied herself a writer began to love being in the center of everything and started capturing stories instead of making them up, but it felt like a pretty natural transition. I love the getting-to-know-you, first date butterflies of befriending new clients, of meeting over cocktails or coffee and talking about life. I think that when it feels like the person photographing your wedding could be there anyway, my job becomes seamless.
I'm currently located in Chicago, but love to jetset. Travel fees do not apply to NYC wedding coverage - 99,111,110,116,97,99,116,32,109,101em tcatnoc for details!
