When Erik (the love of my life) and I embarked on our West Coast adventure, we were in search of a new home. But, what I didn’t know was that I would end up finding myself, and in turn finding my voice as a photographer. I’ve had this burning passion for humanity since before I can remember. As a child I would find myself sitting in awe of life, feeling every electrifying cell move through my body. My love of photography stems from a deeper part of myself than my interest in flower petals and embroidered dresses, it comes from the very core of my passion for existing. For being present in my own life, but more so for being a part of the lives of others.
My camera is an extension of my soul, and after two years and close to 100 weddings later, I found that with my original brand, Sweet Adeline Photography, I was shooting with my mind and not with my heart, so I set about on a journey to reinvent my image and through that You look lovely, Dear was born (because it’s about you, and I wouldn’t have it any other way).
Photography isn’t just about touching a button, or finding correct exposure and white balance, it’s about the human experience. Through that connection, beautiful moments of truth, love, and light can be found and captured — and that’s why you, are my greatest adventure, and words can not begin to express how thankful I am for that.
