I have been a freelance photographer for the past 7 years, beginning as an event photographer while pursuing my BA in Photography.

I’ve spent most of the past 3 years shooting weddings, as well as children, newborn babies, and also pets.

On a personal level, I am a people person with a knack for getting smiles and making clients happy. I am reliable and capable in fast-paced environments, and I always deliver my results on time. When it comes to photo editing, I am highly organized and I pride myself on being extremely attentive to detail, with an eye for presentation.
I would like to invite you to take a look at my online portfolio here (your online photo portfolio web address) to see the styles and quality of my work. Please find my contact information at the top of this letter and on my website.
