I am a wedding photographer in Charleston, South Carolina. I have also been lucky enough to be selected as a contributor to one of the worlds largest photography websites www.Fstoppers.com. It’s an amazing way for me to give back to the online communities that taught me so much when I was first starting.
I spent my high school and college years with a camera glued to my hip, but it never crossed my mind to actually try and be a photographer. In the middle of trying to figure out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life however, a friend of mine called me in a bit of a panic asking if I was available to assist a wedding photographer in town the next day. I had never shot a wedding before, but my friend seemed to think that I would be good at it, so I agreed.
I won’t say that my first wedding changed my life, but it gave me a completely new perspective on the job of a wedding photographer. Not only was the fast paced atmosphere exciting, and the ability to be there for some of the most important moments in a person’s life deeply moving, but it was so much fun!
