I believe we are all rooted in love.
Growing up, I spent most of my time dressing up as my favorite princess (Jasmine... of course) or romanticizing my Grandma and Pappy's 60-year love story unfold right in front of my eyes (without even realizing it). So, you could say I've always been a sucker for romance. To me, "true love" feels cinematic and nostalgic, slow and calm, but bangs and bolts of thunder and lighting simultaneously. I'd call it "true love," something that we're all trying to figure out how to show in our own way.
After my Pappy passed away in 2019, and my Grandma joining him in 2022, I realized how important the role of photography is in our lives. It's how we relive the most awe-inspiring and irreplaceable moments, time and time again, for the years and years to come.
My roots started from being planted in the firm, passionate, and infectious love shared between my grandparents and now is reflected in the couples I get the chance to photograph.
The kind of love we all look forward to and can look back on for the years to come.
The best stories are rooted in love
