What do you shoot with? A friend convinced me that the Sony a7ii is the best line. And I agree. This is the camera that I own and love. With my whole heart. What lens do you use? I rent various lens best suited for our shoot together. How long have you been shooting? I bought my first DSLR when I was 15 and have been taking pictures ever since. Have you taken photography classes? Majored in communications and took a photography class alongside lots of other media courses. I also work with a bunch of photography/videography professionals who continually challenge me to grow. Do you take pictures full time? I work full time as a producer for the Willow Creek Association who puts on a little thing called the Global Leadership Summit, you might have heard of it. Photography is my side passion and outlet for creativity. What are you like to work with? I get it. Taking pictures can feel daunting some times. I want to make you feel as comfortable as possible - that means getting to know you. My style of photography is to capture you and your people in your moments. Yes, I'll put you in a few poses. But I find the best memories are captured when you are doing your normal thing. Telling stories, reading a book, going on a walk. I do my best to capture your moments so you feel like your pictures most accurately tell your story.
