I believe the most important thing in life is to make meaningful connections with other people. I love to travel- anywhere. But, staying home is also nice. I take my best photos while I’m having fun. So, my top priority on a wedding day is to make sure we’re all having a good time. My friends and family make me happy. I see each day as a new opportunity to learn something—a new opportunity to experience life—and for that reason I think regret is a waste of time. It may be unhealthy, but I love coffee and Diet Coke and need one or the other (or both) everyday. I never went to school for photography, but have been shooting since 2003 and learned by working with other photographers. I actually have an M.A. in Communication from USC (Fight on!) because I always had aspirations to work behind the scenes in the entertainment industry. I’m thankful everyday that I get to do this instead. One thing I know for sure is a positive attitude goes a long way. Special thanks to Meg Perotti and Floataway Studios for images to the left.
