The connections I've made in the wedding industry have been a learning experience and a blessing. In 2015, I was given the opportunity to be an assistant to a big wig Wedding Photographer. From July 2015- April 2016, I photographed 15 weddings with him. He taught me all the knowledge I still use today from my camera, lens choices, editing, shooting style and how to interact with the bride and groom. In the process, he introduced to me other local photographers and videographers. During that summer, I met another big wig Photographer and assisted him with a wedding where I met Keith Berend! It wasn't my first rodeo, but it sure was his. I enjoyed his desire to learn. He was so creative from the start! From that summer night, we became friends instantly and since then, have photographed 2 years of weddings together. 2016 was my first wedding season SOLO. I shot 16 weddings and had Keith or Veronica by my side, sometimes even both. I wouldn't be where I am today with out all the guidance and support from my peers. Keith was one of them. I couldn't have survived my first wedding season without him. I was then blown away when he asked me to be HIS Wedding Photographer. And here we are.... 7 days from Keith and Amanda's Wedding at Rustic Manor. I became so close with Amanda too over the last few years. I can't wait to see her become Mrs. Berend. She will make one stunning bride. Congratulations Keith and Amanda. May your love be ever lasting. Hurry up and start a family so I can photograph all the new milestones to your love story. Thank you for all your help over the years.
