Questions and AnswersRead More Show Less
What 3 words best describe your work?Thoughtful, vibrant, and fun!
Why should someone hire you?Being a wedding photographer is more than a job—it's my passion. I care so much about my clients and their story and love being involved with all of their decisions leading up to their big day. My goal is to always deliver images that perfectly capture their wedding in a way that is both authentic and artistic. I'm professional, punctual, and organized but also very comfortable meeting new people. I want you to feel like you're with a good friend and that you can relax! I spend a lot of time in post-production and obsess over making colors accurate and editing perfect compositions.
What makes a wedding memorable for you?The people! I love seeing how each couple infuses their personality into their day, whether it's in their unique vows, their décor, or by including special traditions and surprises at their reception. I'm also very inspired by fashion and florals, so the design elements always stand out to me.
If you could have any superpower on the job, what would it be?I wish I could control the weather! Lighting has a huge impact on photography and I'd love nothing more than to customize the cloud coverage and throw in a rainbow.
What are 3 words that describe your personality?Energetic, sunny, and creative.
What are some of your favorite places to eat—either everyday spots or special occasion splurges?SUGARFISH by sushi nozawa is my favorite restaurant in the LA area! Milk Jar Cookies and Jeni's Ice Cream for dessert! I absolutely love trying new restaurants and cocktail bars since it's like being on a constant treasure hunt. I try to eat relatively healthy but frequently give in to my persistent sweet tooth!
