What to Expect
If you book me to take your photos, expect a ton of great photography, great customer service skills, friendly interactions, and professional work effort! Not only are my photos professional but, I am very easy to get along with, work with, coordinate with, and hire! Not only will you as my client be extremely satisfied but, your guests will too (if you are booking me for event photography). I am extremely good with people so your guests will remember me as the friendly and outgoing photographer who did an outstanding job as well as ensuring your guests have a great time!
If you are booking me for a 1 on 1 photoshoot, expect that we will get the best, most beautiful photos you have ever taken! I am amazing at catching locations, lighting, and wardrobe in the right moments to make them all come together great! Not only that but, you will feel very comfortable with me as if we have been friends for years! I am very respectful, catering, and friendly while shooting. The comfort of my subject is primary to me and I always do my best to ensure you feel safe, happy, relaxed, and engaged in what we are doing!
I started doing photography as a form of expression in high school and have been expanding on that passion and innate talent ever since. I did a lot of landscape photography when I started. I have always loved the beauty in Earth's nature. I did a lot of background and wallpaper type photography of mountains, hillsides, cities, and more.
Eventually, I decided to give photography with models a try. I started doing photoshoots with local models, actresses, musicians, and people just wanting professional photos. That quickly turned into a newly found passion for photography which has lead me to where I am today.
Now, I have learned to combine my love for landscape photography with my passion for showing others the natural beauty in people. My style of photography focuses on the essence of beauty in my models and the backdrops they are in. Thus being why my company is called "Essence Photography". I focus on the basic elements of beauty involved in each picture and have found a knack for showing off a model's natural beauty without all the excess makeup, lighting, or editing.
In 2017 and beyond I want to focus on doing great headshot and portrait like photoshoots along with fun and enlightening event photography. I love being able to capture a vision through my lens and bring that vision to life! Whether it is a 1 on 1 photoshoot or me taking photos at a huge event, I always strive to take the best pictures possible!
Additional Booking Notes
I have my own camera and some equipment such as a reflector, flash, and fill lighting. If you are booking me for a red carpet event, you should have fill light ready to go at the location of the red carpet. I will adjust it along with mine to make it look as beautiful as possible!
For event photography and photoshoots, I have my own fill lighting and will always bring it with me! All you need to bring is your beautiful self and/or your guests!
