My passion for photography was discovered late in life. I was doing wedding video with my brother when I decided we should add photography to our business. I had some photography background but basically taught myself. I really enjoy working with engaged couples and finding new ways to create art through photography. My goal is to provide them with images they will treasure for their lifetimes.
What's your philosophy in life?
Be positive, be persistent and always rely on your higher power.
What makes you feel accomplished?
When I complete a wedding and discover I have some tremendous images.
Is what you're doing now what you always wanted to do growing up?
No not at all. I was a journalist – a newspaper reporter. That is what I went to college for. While some photography was involved in journalism, my job was as a writer. I never in a million years would have thought I would become a wedding photographer. It’s funny how life changes.
Do you believe in second chances?
Yes of course. Me starting wedding photography was sort of a second chance at a new career. I believe anyone can improve and change for the better if they want to when given a second chance.
What sets you apart from your competition?
Well – I suppose one thing is that I’m completely open. Setting prices is a challenge for wedding photographers. I looked at other photographer’s wedding photos and prices and am amazed how many of them don’t discuss their prices on their webpage. I believe that couples should have this vital piece of information before they call you so they know what they are getting into.
Also, the fact that we do both wedding photography and videography sets us apart. Many couples hire both a photographer and a videographer and choose two different companies. Then often the photographer and the videographer compete with each other for the best shot. Since our one company does both, our photographers and videographers work together, support each other and make sure we don’t get in each other’s way.
If you could give your bride/client one piece of advice what would it be?
What types of questions should a bride ask of someone in your industry? Ask to see photos from an entire wedding rather than simply just photos selected by the photographer to show. Ask about how long it will take to receive the photos and how much editing is done on the photos.
