I have been taking pictures all my life, but working as a professional photographer for the past 6 years. I had the pleasure of learning from one of the top wedding photographers in Chicago at Husar Photography.
Always looking to try new things and keep my images fresh, I can't help but go the extra mile if it means some epic pictures in return! Be it hiking a mountain with a sofa (yes literally!), unknowingly trespassing on some protected California land at sunset, or dragging a hundred feet of extension cords into a forest....I am DOWN!:) I will try almost anything once and believe there is always something new to learn in my eyes:)
I love combining new and old, vintage and contemporary, natural and urban…a mix of sorts:) I believe in having some great traditional shots that will last a lifetime, accompanied by more alternative themes, settings, or ideas. As a painter (www.michellescottart.com), its seems I can’t help but bring some of that into the way I shoot too. It’s my goal to leave you with a ‘work of art’ to take home at the end of it.
