I officially launched my wedding photography business in 2017. Every weekend you can find me capturing love stories across Indiana. After almost four years in the wedding photography business, I’m more than just a photographer. I’m there to straighten your dress, fix the flower girl’s hair, and attach the boutonnière that nobody else can get.
It’s an honor to not only be a part of your big day, but to document it forever. During wedding days, I have a special eye for the emotion in every moment. The giggles with your girls as you get your hair done, the butterflies during your first look, and the pure joy when you say “I Do.”
WHY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY?
Although I call Indiana home, I was born and raised in Hong Kong. Part of my heart definitely still lives there! That’s where I met my husband before we packed up and moved to the States. Now we spend our time together hiking, preferring sunsets over sunrises, and snuggling with our furry children during movie nights.
Creativity has always been an really important part of my life. Before I started this business photographing your special memories, I was a kindergarten teacher. I spent my days coloring, teaching, playing, and singing. My dad is a chef so I grew up in a home where he was always experimenting with new recipes. This inspired me to follow my own creative path!
In 2002 I gave birth to my first kiddo. A few years later, my other kid was born! Like many new moms, I was obsessed with taking pics of my babies. Becoming a mom led me to picking up a camera for the first time and before I knew it, photography was second nature! With every click of the shutter, I fell more and more in love with it. In 2009, I went back to university to formally study photography.
