As a teenager, I was taught to follow the path: get good grades, go to college, get a high-paying job, etc. Most of my friends from school fit right in. Me? My path looked a little more like this:
Find my passion for photography. Shoot my first solo wedding at the age of 15. Withdraw my admission from my dream college. Instead, go ALL IN on my business. Continue to equip myself through workshops and education. Oh, and empower other photographers to take their business to the next level along the way.
I built my photography business in high school working countless hours between homework assignments & tennis matches to turn my passion into a successful & recognized brand.
I built my business from the ground up and photographed my first solo wedding when most of my friends were playing video games and doing what a normal teenager would do.
But I wasn’t always this sure. I mean, who would hire a teenager to be responsible for capturing one of the most important days of their lives? Despite all the challenges and doubts, I took a chance on my dream and got my business license ( before I even had a driver license ), because I believed I could turn my passion into something more.
At the time, I was juggling being a teenager and a professional photographer at the same time. I went from my math tests and English essays to senior sessions and weddings. I even skipped prom so that I’d shoot a wedding - that’s how committed I was. I attended workshops and invested in the best equipment and education to grow my knowledge and skills, so I can help my clients feel seen and capture the most authentic version of themselves.
And that’s what means the most to me.
I want to photograph to really reach people in the most sensitive and meaningful areas of their lives. To help them see how special and unique they are, to move their souls, and to remind them what truly matters. And we shine simply by showing up and owning our story.
Since starting my business I’ve gotten to help people own their story, shine from within, and craft a life-giving legacy that touches lives.
change is possible.
Our storytelling approach to photography turns the moments we share today into a story that lives on, so you can revisit the details and emotions of your special moments + leave a legacy that is worthy of being passed on.
With this philosophy, I get to capture the moments of life for the wonderful couples and friends in Houston, TX and help them intentionally craft a legacy that is worthy of being passed on.
Because I believe your unique story is meant to be shared and cultivated. And I consider it a pure joy to share your legacy of happiness, laughter, faith, and love of celebrating.
Working with Reed was a wonderful experience! As a whole, we are quite camera shy and we are pretty awkward when taking pictures. Reed immediately put us at ease and helped us to actually have fun in front of the camera. It really shows in our photos! An all-around, fabulous experience!
