In 2013 I graduated from Appalachian State and left family, friends and (at the time) a serious boyfriend behind to begin my career as a full time Photo Retoucher for Splash Worldwide in Portland, Oregon. This was by far the most difficult decision of my life and was often the source of some tear-filled nights.
After learning the ropes with an amazing commercial retouching company and a proposal from the man of my dreams, it was time for us to make a choice. Continue on with the stable job and work my way up the ladder or venture out into the world of photography on my own.
Of course as scary as it was to leave behind a steady job, I felt the urge to help other photographers that struggle editing their weddings. Like all small businesses I just needed a little help to get started. With support from family and friends I took a leap of faith and Attended the Creative at Heart conference where I met my first clients.
After hearing Justin and Mary Marantz speak at the conference I had to introduce myself. I told them my story and that’s when Justin told me that they had actually been looking for an editor and wanted to know if I wanted to give it a shot (Umm… Of Course!)! I’ve grown to take on many more photographers across the U.S. and have never looked back!
