8 years. Ever since I moved to San Francisco in 2010 I have been photographing professionally. I have garnered a lot of experience during that time. I photographed over 100 events, weddings and portraits in 2014 alone and have seen just about every lighting situation. I knew I wanted to photograph weddings after my own wedding in 2008, which happened around the same time that I graduated college. The experience of getting my photos back was so special to me that I knew that was what I wanted to do for others.
