Let me tell you about my journey, it's worth reading. pinky swear. 

I was adopted. I was born during the One-Child Policy in China and was put in an orphanage.

I was extremely ill and the orphanage was afraid they wouldn’t be able to care for me the way I needed medically, so they paired me with a couple who was adopting from the US who were both in the medical field and who could give me the treatment I needed. I am such a believer that what is meant to be will be and everything happens for a reason, and I live by that.

Family is everything to me.

I think the moments that hit my soul hard are those family moments. 

The moments where your mom is zipping up your dress looking at you with such love in her eyes or when your partner can't hold back their tears watching you walk to them. Most of all, parent dances get me EVERY time because I pray that my dad will be able to have a father dance with me. My dad was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease 16 years ago. I have such an appreciation for all these once-in-a-lifetime moments on the wedding day; those are the moments I live for.

I have a different perspective on these moments:

I photograph weddings because I didn’t come from love.

Weddings are just that. A celebration of love with all of your closest friends and family. I am so honored that I get to capture and be a part of this for those I serve. There are so many parts of the wedding day that excite me, that just remind me why I love what I do every single day. Getting to know my couples, along with their friends and family truly make for the best memories. 

My adoption story and upbringing have truly made me into such a family-oriented person, which is why I love weddings so much. 

I came from the exact opposite, but I was given the chance to love and be loved. I was brought into such an amazing family that showed what it was like to be loved by others.

I come not only to serve you with professionalism and care,

 but you will walk away with the most incredible wedding photos and feeling like you've gained a friend.
