Becoming a Destination Wedding Photographer
Friday - 10:00 am
Saying YES to the Life of Your Dreams
Saturday - 5:15 pm
I am one of those people that truly believe all things are possible. I am passionate about living a life I love. I was not always this way. For more than ten years I was stuck doing my backup profession, living a life that was my Plan B because I was too afraid to go for Plan A. Each day I went to work and I was miserable. I would sit and dream about freedom. I learned the art of decision in 2013 when I quit my full time job and committed to myself that I would grow my small little photography business into my bread and butter. I designed a life of travel, doing what I want when I want, booking gigs all over the globe, and being happier than any one person should ever be (but oh, how we deserve this!).
I have a deep belief that the only way the world will be at its best is if WE are at our best. And we are at our best ONLY when we wake up every day and love who we are and what we are doing. I am fiercely committed to my own success and to the success of each business owner I coach, mentor, and teach. I have worked and lived in more than 7 different countries, traveled to more than 40 of them, and have a plan to visit every country in the world before I’m 50. I’m making good headway.
When I’m not clicking a photo you can often find me in old bookstores in Paris where I still spend a lot of my time. I also frequent all the latest Broadway shows and watch the TONY awards avidly. I have a home base in the lovely mountains of Park City, Utah –and I’m always home for the Sundance Film Festival to do interviews and snap pictures. I also spend large parts of the year in New York City. But, 60 percent of my time I’m jetting off around the globe to photograph destination weddings, collaborate with other artists, attend fashion week in Milan, Paris, and NYC or just eating gelato in the Italian home of my ancestors. When I have a day off, I’m usually reading Jane Austen, making movies, and learning how to dream bigger.
IN FIVE YEARS
I see myself living in the South of France, speaking French all day long, eating croissants and having a fling with my Italian poolboy (or I'll probably just be in a cabin in Vermont writing romance novels in my yoga pants).
