Full-time for ONE year!!

Wow…How fast a year has gone!! Today marks exactly ONE year since I took the jump into persuing photography full-time, and what an incredible year it’s been! I’m beyond blessed to do what I love and make a living doing it. This past year has presented me with so many amazing opporunities, and freedom that I never had working as an engineer full time. I’ve been able to put an emense amount of energy into my business, and it’s been a thrill to watch it grow! I truly have the most amazing couples who believe in what I do! 

This past year has given me the time I need to discover myself. Discover my strenghts, what makes me tick, what motivates me, and what challenges me to better myself. It’s been a year of traveling, learning, teaching, leading, and meeting so many new friends! The bar is set high for this upcoming year, and I couldn’t be more excited for what’s in store! I’m working on so many projects for my business it’s ridulously fun (and busy), and I can’t wait to share them with you!

So with all that’s been said I want to share with you some things I’ve learned during this past year. Things I believe can help you no matter where you’re at with your business. 

Missy + Ryan | Engaged

Those of you that know me know how much I love traveling to NYC…A truer statement; I LOVE photographing couples in NYC! So every now and then when I know I’m going to be traveling out that way I’ll post on social media that I’m looking for couples who want photos there! That’s how I met Missy and Ryan! These two are engaged and getting married next year! They’re both Ohio natives who moved to NYC after college and are living the life out there! 

I had a blast with these two exploring the Brooklyn area, and capturing their fun personalities and love, and I’m so excited to share them with you! Without further ado..Missy and Ryan!

Elizabeth + Corey | Engaged

Meet Elizabeth and Corey! I had the priviledge of knowing Elizabth a few years ago when I worked at my engineering job! She was working through an internship and I would always enjoy running into her and chatting!  I would constantly hear about a guy she was dating who was away at school, and I could tell she was extremely happy! (Of course she was talking about Corey…) 

Corey called me back in February, and told me he was planning to propose to Elizabeth and that he wanted me to photograph the proposal! I was so excited because this was my first proposal I have ever had the chance to shoot! Obviously the proposal went so amazing (I’ll share some photos later), and now I got to shoot thier official engagement session, and will be shooting thier wedding next May! Can’t wait to share more of them with you! Enjoy!

Nina + Alex | Married

I first met fellow photographers Alex and Nina over the summer after Alex reached out to me to meet for coffee! They own Birch Tree Photography and are totally rocking it! When talking to Alex I can tell he is beyond passionate about what he does, and when he does a job he goes above and beyond to perfect his work! I’m pretty sure I should feature him in the future on here… 

I’m so excited to have connected with this amazing couple! Check out their session below! 🙂
