1. What made you decide to become an Orange County Wedding Photographer?

 I have been shooting Weddings for about 7 years now and I have always enjoyed shooting in Orange County. When I was a little girl, my family and I would spend many weekends in Orange County for soccer tournaments and we always had a great time. It feels like home to me. In my opinion, there really is no place like Orange County. There is just so much natural beauty. I love the fresh air, great weather, the awesome venues and of course, the beaches! Each time I have shot in Orange County it's refreshing and the cities positive energy that you are surrounded with is unbelievable!

3. Why is lighting so important to you when creating Orange County Wedding Photography?

Over the years of being a Orange County Wedding Photographer, I have studied and challenged myself on learning the top aspects in Photography. They are all important but lighting is my top priority when I'm on the job. Light can be bright, dull, hard, soft, sunlit, cloudy, sunrise, and midday not including considering angle of light, contrast, and shadows accurately. This is so important in Wedding Photography. My style is natural and warm so I use natural soft light to create beautiful Orange County Wedding Photography. You will see in my work that there are no harsh shadows on the skin, the lighting is even and soft from head to toe. That's how I am able to make sure you look amazing when you look back on your wedding photos.
