Team of Dear Heart Film + Portraits
Photographer & Cinematographer
I've been shooting photo and video since I was old enough to pick up a camera. In college, I started my business and shot three weddings that year. I realized I LOVE hearing people's stories, everything from how they met to what they enjoy doing together to what their favorite things about each other are.
I believe people need to be passionate about their work and this is especially true when it comes to creative industries. I genuinely love what I do and it shows through my photos and films. I want to get to know my couples so their personalities can shine through what I do.
