I am a storyteller; I write, film, and photograph them. Weddings are love stories I get to experience in real time. I capture the moment that two lavishly-dressed people come together in front of their friends and family to commit to their lifelong love story. Two people who care for each other deeply and want to build a life together. What is more romantic and beautiful than that? The best part about weddings is that no two are the same. Even if you don't write your own vows, stick to traditions, or even wear the same dress as someone else, your wedding day is a unique experience for you and your partner. It's a new season, a new chapter of your lives, and you get to make those memories with each other. Let's tell your story together.
As I mentioned, I am a storyteller. Part of my Integrative Arts degree was creative writing. I love writing short fiction stories and hope to be a novelist and screenwriter someday. I’d love to be like Tina Fey and use television, movies, and books to tell my story to the world.
My own story includes being adopted and discovering my biological family through a 23andme DNA test. I also learned that I am English, Nigerian, French, and many other ethnicities.
Beneath the surface, I am a massive geek. I love superheroes on the screen, Doctor Who, writing song lyrics that will never see the light of day, and watching too many cartoons, crime dramas, and comedies.
Visual art has always been an interest of mine. From how I learn to my creative outlets, vivid imagery is a significant part of my identity. My parents were a big inspiration from an earlier age because they owned their own photography studio from the 1970s to the 1990s. I’ve had a camera in my hand since I could walk.
Jack of all trades is inherent in my personality. I enjoy knowing a little bit of everything. I double-majored in college at Penn State (2015) with a bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications and another in Integrative Arts.
Part of my history includes being adopted and discovering my biological family through a 23andme's DNA test. I also found out that I am English, Nigerian, French, and many other ethnicities.
On top of being a photographer, I also edit photos for my fellow photographers. Definitely check out my editing page all about that service.
When I’m not doing any of that, I enjoy relaxing in my New Jersey apartment with my boyfriend Jon and Mr. Lionel, my kitty cat.
