Photography was a passion-turned-profession for me. As a marketing manager, I often needed photos for advertising campaigns and publications. Naturally, the I was asked to either be the photographer or find the photo using as little money as possible. I found myself getting just as excited about that portion of the job as I was about tracking the campaign results, so I bought my first DSLR. Most of my personal photography is of destinations where we’ve traveled, and most of my professional photography work is of corporate events and weddings.
As a corporate event photographer I always loved it when the meeting planners would ask for detail shots. The food, the food! Caterers are artists and I loved capturing their stunning edible displays.
Apart from the physical demands, I always said that being a wedding photographer was the easiest job I’d ever had because smiles come naturally on a wedding day. Interactions aren’t staged, emotions are real, and love is tangible. Capturing a wedding was a responsibility I took very seriously, and I’m still honored that my clients entrusted me with such important memories.
