I started photographing because of my love of chasing beauty and light. I always cite my love of the camera began at the Grand Canyon, trying to capture the depth and dimension I saw in a single frame. And growing up, I would "chase sunsets" with my mom every summer, trying to catch a glimpse of magic that could happen that day. This is still my heartbeat. With every couple I photograph, I'm looking for magic. For light. For beauty. And for genuine emotion & connection. When I see ALL of those things in one frame, THAT is the moment that I'm always "chasing" - and when I see it, I know!!
I met my husband Derek downtown Syracuse, where he was volunteering at the Hopeprint House! We realized that we both loved the Lord, the outdoors, and both thought the other person was extremely cute! We dated long distance for 2 years before I moved here to upstate New York, and we were married in October 2017! Derek is truly my compliment, being much more practical, yet more extroverted and spontaneous than I am. What would I do without him! He adds so much joy into my life! Derek is also a great photographer and I love having him on my team as much as possible, in life and in work! We are really better together and I am so blessed to have him by my side.
