My life right now is expended hopping from one illusion wed venue to the next, but it wasn’t always that way.

I picked up my first camera when I was 11 years old. I was wholly enamored by the skateboarding culture, and manufacture photographers at the time. I dreamed of photographing skateboarding for a living and tried relentlessly to make it in the skateboarding industry.

By the time I was 16 I ceased out of high school and was living on the streets of south California. Sleeping in public parks and friends’ lounges, still haunting my dream of has become a skateboard photographer.

At 18 years old, and still not health professionals skate photographer, I decided it was time for a change, I packed my camera purse and are determined to drive to San Francisco and become a wedding photographer. I expended weeks living out of a automobile and using Starbucks as my agency. Slowly, utilizing my skateboarding portfolio as my only reference, I was able to start booking purchasers, eventually switching bridals into my full-time job.

Today, I am 24 years old. I have traveled to 12 countries, on 4 continents all because of uniting photography. I am so proud to say that I have the greatest chore I could have ever imagined. Even better than killing skateboarding for a living!
