I am Grateful!

A combination of trying them all, meeting inspiring photographers, working with not so nice people helped me decide the road I want to take in photography, at least for now. Therefore, Thank You to all of you nice or not so nice people! Life is a learning experience and I am grateful for everything I went through to get where I am.

I’ve decided to concentrate on two things in photography. I’ve decided to only do what I LOVE and to, all the time, follow my heart and passion. Since that decision almost a year passed by and I couldn’t be happier. There are still some things ( not related to photography) that are not 100% perfect in my career, but I know it takes some time to finally have it all. For now I am as happy as I could be.

Even as a child I was always attracted by beautiful things around me and I always wanted to make people feel good and happy even if just for a moment. So I piked Glamour Portraiture and Weddings.

Glamour photography for me represents, beauty, elegance, confidence, happiness, achievement and much more.  Hence, when I discovered glamour photography I knew that I can make women feel happy, confident, and worth it and on top of that I knew that this will bring me the same feelings. So I gave it a go, and I was right. They do feel happy and beautiful and the emotions I get back from women I photograph feed me with ideas, passion, and love for what I do every single time.

I know I already said that I like beauty and happy people, but the next photography genre I chose is Weddings, and weddings is all of that and even more. At first I wasn’t sure if I wanted to be a wedding photographer, but something inside of me kept on telling me to give it a try and so I did. At first I started by assisting weddings and that didn’t take too long. I only assisted one wedding and after that, the lovely and kind person/photographer by the name of Marirosa, hired me as her 2nd photographer. Needless to say I was ecstatic and eager to do it and so I accepted. Marirosa from Photograpy by Marirosa is an excellent wedding photographer and needless to say I have to thank her for helping me realize how much I just LOVE weddings. Marirosa thank you for coaching me along the way and thank you for believing in me from the beginning.

…and how i could not love weddings? Weddings represents love, beauty, joy and above all I am there to experience it and capture it all. Capturing love is the most beautiful thing in the world and I get to do it!

Thank you to everyone for all the support and encouragement you showed and continue to show me.
