My love for photography landed me am assisting job for a local wedding photographer, which grew into a full time dream job when I opened Allure Photography in 2012. The more weddings I photographed the more I loved it. I knew that photographing weddings was my calling, my dream job. I consider myself extremely blessed to be trusted with such an important role on your wedding day and nothing makes me happier than watching you open your wedding album for the first time.
I have learned from the most talented photographers in the industry. Taking workshops yearly workshops is something I do to ensure I am always delivering my best work and quality service. Some of the workshops that have made a big impact on my work are: Two Mann Studios, Jesh De Rox, Jennifer Moher, Sam Hurd, Jeff Newsom and Jerry Ghinios.
I get my inspiration from my couples, building a friendship with you is the foundation for capturing genuine photographs. Getting to know who you are, what you love, and how you interact with each other helps me to draw out your true selves so I can capture the beauty of who you are at this fleeting time in your life.
I simply love life and people. I love spending time outdoors paddle boarding, hiking, growing vegetables in our garden, and fishing. I believe that your never fully dressed without a smile and I give thanks every day to God for all of the gifts in my life.
