Quality Comes First
Capturing a once in a life time moment takes more than just a camera. It takes an eye trained by years of experience to identify the lighting, lens, aperture, and exposure required to make a moment truly stand out. I have that experience and truly hope that you will let me use it for your portrait session or share it with you during a photography class.
