In 2000, my cousin was planning her San Francisco beach wedding and asked if I’d step in as their photographer. Despite my amateur title at the time and my persistent stomach butterflies I said yes and it is still one of my most cherished weddings to look back on. I was hooked.
Over the years, my love for photography has grown but the real shift in my life took place in 2008 after a very unexpected and temporary cancer diagnosis. I had an instant glimpse into how quickly life can change and I made the decision right then and there that I was going to follow my dreams that mattered most. I’ve never looked back.
