Wedding at Saltwater Farm

One of the things that first drew me to wedding photography was the emotion. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre, having loved performing since I was a little kid in dance class. I took dance when I was young, extending that into my high school drama class days, and culminating in four years of studying acting, dance, and technical theatre in college. I interned for a Broadway theatre company before ultimately deciding that the theatrical life wasn’t for me. Despite knowing that I didn’t want to work in the theatre industry, I missed it. I missed the high drama, the anticipation and creation of moments, and the intricate staging that goes into mounting a production. When I began shooting weddings I knew that I had found my perfect career. It married (no pun intended!) the drama that I loved from theatre, the beauty that I adored from learning about costumes, and the light that I loved from my technical theatre classes. I quickly came to love shooting weddings more than being in plays because at weddings the emotion is real. A great example of that is this genuinely lovely moment of a groom listening to the bride’s sister toast the new couple at his wedding reception. Saltwater Farm was a gorgeous location with beautiful light. I love how the light from the Saltwater Farm windows streamed across the dance floor, illuminating the face of the groom. With a little help from some off-camera flash I had a beautifully theatrical picture - with a huge dose of real emotion!
