I have always had a passion for photography. I spent five years at UC Davis majoring in graphic design. As a graphic design student I learned the skills to correctly edit photographs and even sometimes make a photograph into something artistic and different. Accompanying these design classes I also took as many photography classes as possible. In these classes I learned skills and tricks to creating a beautiful image on the camera. I also spent many hours in the dark room processing my own film and photographs. During my time at Davis I did an internship with a wedding photographer where I learned more about the field of photography as a job.
I have been photographing weddings for the last 6 years. I love being able to capture the emotion and love that surrounds a wedding. Weddings are a special time and I love to capture those memories for people.
I don't just photograph weddings. I will photograph just about anything from events, to portraits, to interiors. Give me a task and I will give my 100% and make the best images to capture exactly what you need captured. I love photography and there isn't anything I wouldn't want to photograph.
I do also work with James Hall Photography (www.jameshallphoto.com). I have learned almost everything I know from James and I love working with him. He is absolutely fantastic and I recommend also looking at his site as well!
