I have had an interest in photography for about 17 years or so starting when I received a film camera from my parents as a graduation gift. After fiddling around with it for a few years, I got my first digital camera, and which allowed me to learn the ins and outs of photography so much more quickly. I have yet to find any activity that engages both the creative and analytic sides of my mind. In 2009, I received a call from a friend asking me to photograph his wedding as a personal favor and after having some initial reservations, agreed. After having enjoyed that experience so much, it dawned on me to purse it as a business. Clients have often asked me, 'why do you do it'? To me, photography allows me to enjoy all the great aspects of running a business doing something that I love doing as well as meet so many fantastic people along the way that I would not have otherwise.
