ABOUT ME 

Mary Jo & Mike Wedding POST-256.jpg

I had my first artistic revelation 12 years ago as I improvised a studio in my parent’s garage and with a point and shoot camera I took my very first portraits. I made my way through the business by learning everything on my own, an accomplishment that in any other occasion could have been to my disadvantage in terms of time, but this way, it only made me better and I learned to find my novelty.

 

APPROACH

I endeavor to build a bond with all of you that I will work with. A bond ensured by getting to know each other, together we truly will capture your story. I will relate to you by sharing my stories in a funny way, I clinch to make you laugh.

WHAT I BELIEVE

I became committed and dedicated in achieving how people see and feel about art, I matured into an artist free of any prejudice, someone that does art exclusively for art's sake. I look through the camera lenses to find amazing possibilities. For me as a photographer and artist, my goal is to achieve spontaneous creativity within the most surreal views and moments. Yet, I experience photography being beyond a profession; it’s forever a standpoint, a way of captivating other people’s most precious moments and their dreams.

WHY WEDDINGS?

The reason I now am a wedding photographer is that because I have seen firsthand the power of preservation; see my dad was an amateur photographer on his youth, and 40 some years later I was able to find all the negative films that he shoot and scan them into digital photographs. One day as a surprise I asked him to sit in front of the computer and showed him photos he took, photos that he had not seen in many, many years, negatives that he thought were lost. As I watched him getting emotional as he flickered through each and every picture I then realized how powerful photography is through generations.
