Six years ago, I quit my full-time engineering career to pursue my love for photography. Living out my passion as a photographer has brought me so much joy, and I'm so happy I get to share it with so many incredible people.
For as long as I can remember, photography has been a passion of mine. I fell in love with it when I was younger and living overseas with my parents and two brothers. It was during that time when I realized how important photography is. The way I had the ability to capture moments and relive them with a sense of nostalgia years after they happened.
However, I never considered it as a career until I was midway through my engineering degree in college. My business started as a hobby. Taking photos of landscapes, architecture, and nature on my travels and selling them to make some extra money. Because you know…broke college student. Within a year of sharing my images on social media, I began getting approached by people asking for headshots, senior pics, and eventually weddings.
I photographed my first wedding in 2011 and immediately fell in love with the wedding photography process. The couples I met were amazing. Unlike most professions, I was able to build a personal relationship with each one, and it was an added bonus while doing what I loved.
Since then, I’ve photographed over 90 couples, quit my 9-5 engineering career to do what I love full-time, and have been afforded so many incredible opportunities to travel and work with amazing people from all over the country.
