Heyyyyyyyy! It's me, Bri! I can drink margaritas like it’s my job and get down with my bad self to some old school hip-hop. I own too many house plants, most definitely belong on a beach and almost always have a messy bun on top of my head. My current passion is globe trotting and the love of my life is food.
Little things are SO very big to me! Like that first sip of espresso in the morning, welcoming home a new plant baby, my toes touching ocean for the first time after winter, a new paint color on my walls or the feeling of rain drops on my skin. These are the things that make me feel alive and these such feelings are what I believe to be the key to a happy life.
If you ask me why I became a photographer, my answer is simple: because humans are fascinating and very beautiful creatures. I always knew I saw the world a little differently but it wasn't until I was pursuing my college degree that I found my love for human interaction, body language, and intimacy through photography. This quickly became the focus of my art and continues to be the focus in my career. Once I began traveling, I was introduced to new cultures, races and ways in which people show love. I found that working for publication, money, or status isn't what drives me but instead the uniqueness of human beings and couples is what truly inspires me to pick up my camera. Capturing life's little moments in a way that can make you feel it over and over again is what I am continually striving to achieve in my work. Without feeling, what is the point?
If you want to learn more about the business side of me and how I got started in this big world of wedding photography, take a look at my interview with Voyage Chicago here! Or better idea! Comes learn more about me as a human (and my weirdness)! I am always game for a warm espresso or a cold cocktail!
