Here’s what I think you need to know about me: I grew up on my parent’s organic farm and I’m pretty sure that’s where I get my can-do-it-yourself attitude. I’m a gal that appreciates milling my own flour, canning fruit and freezing a whack load of berries. If there is something I can do from scratch, you bet I’ll try it. When I look around our cozy little garden suite, I see so many projects that I am proud of. I appreciate the imperfections, knowing I did that with my own hands. In my family, we show our love by making food for each other. So it’s no surprise that I love cooking for my friends. I’m all about bringing people together with food, outdoor adventures, games (currently obsessed with Carcassone, Codenames, and Hive), and sharing books that I love.
So why photography? Well, after high school, when I was in the Alps working as a shepherd (you can take the girl off the farm, but you can’t take her love of animals), I started making lists of what I wanted to do. Photography was consistently #1 on the list! And that’s when I stopped thinking of photography as a hobby and started thinking of it as something I could do professionally. So I applied to the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts and moved to Vancouver, BC to learn the skills I needed to make it happen.
Why wedding photography? That’s easy—the memories! Personally, I love looking back at my own photos and having those moments to cherish forever. And what’s better than the silly, fun, and beautiful moments of connection that happen at a wedding? You tell me.
Speaking of connection, that’s my #1 non-negotiable in life and in work. When it comes to your special day, I want to feel like a friend. I want to get to know you because *HULLO* we’re going to be spending a lot of time together, especially on your big day. We’ll plan, we’ll share our ideas, we’ll laugh, and I’ll maybe have a few tears (there’s always a moment and I just can’t help myself), because I’m just so dang excited to be a part of this day that you two will remember forever.
