MY OWN JOURNEY
I started my business in 2010 and I have been fortunate to meet so many amazing couple’s who trust my skills to capture their story on one of the most important days of their lives! Being a wedding photographer is truly the most fulfilling career I can think of! From the very beginning, when I meet a couple for the first time, and continue through the planning process up until the wedding day, I am there start to finish. I love helping with the planning process as much as I can! Many couples ask for referrals and questions in other areas of the wedding planning process and it truly is so humbling that they trust my judgement!
After the wedding, many of my clients become friends, and we keep up with each other on social media! The most rewarding part is when they return a couple years later for maternity or baby photos! I absolutely LOVE being apart of all the major milestones in their lives!
A few more facts about me
As you may have guessed, I am a mom to a beautiful, spunky and kind 3 year old! She is everything to me and has been such an amazing light in my life!
LOL.. When I go to a restaurant and find a dish I really like, I never deviate! I guess its probably because I really enjoy food and do not want to be disappointed!
I am a third generation Womanpreneur! My grandma started a drive-in diner in her hometown back in 1956 when women owned businesses were unheard of! My mom started her advertising business in Albuquerque in 1985 and is still up and running and is the longest woman-owned advertising business in NM!
I really dislike tomatoes!! Its a texture thing for me, and they are slimy and gross! I love ketchup, tomato soup, most things that are made from tomatoes…but NOT tomatoes by themselves!!!
I have been a wedding photographer and film maker for 17 years! I have been lucky enough to travel all over the world and photograph beautiful weddings. In 2016 I was part of an Emmy-nominated team for a New York Times Op-Doc. Recently I have rediscovered my love for wedding films and have partnered with my girlfriend, Shayla, to provide couples with a one stop shop for photo and film! I love spending time with her and her beautiful daughter! I also enjoy skiing, traveling, and playing my guitar. When I am not working on photos or films, I am a creative director and enjoy helping people with their branding needs!
I have been working with Shayla for 2 years now! It started as a mentorship, and if you had told me then I would be working weddings with her now, I wouldn’t have believed you! The experience and knowledge I have gained from her has been incredible! We have so much fun at weddings and I am constantly laughing with her…and sometimes at her! I will do anything and everything to get ’the shot!’ One of the most memorable weddings of my career is climbing into a cattle trailer with the groom and groomsmen to be taken to the wedding location! It was a cowboy wedding and they wanted something a little more fun than the traditional limo!” In my personal life, I am a father to my beautiful 1 year daughter and I have an amazing and supportive wife!! I love my family deeply! I am a native New Mexican and in our free time we love to explore the Land of Enchantment!
