How I got into weddings: I started photographing weddings my senior year in high school for a local photography company, then I went to Savannah College of Art and Design and thought my focus was going to be in fashion. Joke’s on me, because as soon as I started shooting film, I migrated right back to weddings. It made me feel like an artist, something I was lacking at the time!
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? Besides the amazing food? I mean, it’s great… BUT I love the people. There is something about a Southern family that you can’t find anywhere else.
Favorite part of a wedding day? The moment the groom sees the bride for the first time. It really is something special.
