The Assistant, she's more than assistant and what makes a session or wedding complete. A real sweetheart and known for shedding a few tears at the wedding...I mean sobbing. I'm kidding, but she tends to get choked up. She's a pleasure to be around and beyond helpful to me and the Bride. Fun fact, I recently shot her wedding...you may recognize her in some featured pictures on this site. Her wedding was nothing short of amazing. So many of the best in the industry, it felt like one big party for everyone.
She loves spending time with her husband and son. She's caring and empathetic towards others. Since she genuinely cares about people, Wedding assistant has been a great fit for her!
She too has a goofy side...don't be surprised if she busts out in dance or strikes a pose for me while testing the lights. ;)

Assistant Photographer, Jasmine has a great eye for detail and the little moments in between. I had the pleasure of mentoring her in her pursuit of photography when she was a Senior in HS. She is currently a CNA (certified Nurses Assistant) and will be attending nursing school this Fall. She loves being able to make a difference in someone's life whether it's them being there for a short time while they get better, or in the nursing home long term. She's there to make it worth while, to help them with the things they sadly aren't able to do by themselves anymore. I think her compassion is why she has such an eye for the emotions of others. Like me, she's super outgoing, loves to make people laugh and to be there to help in any way she can. She's just a fun loving person who you can count on.
