Behind The Lens

Hi there, thanks for checking out my work! I'm Paige & I think the most important thing to know about me as a photographer is that this is my favorite thing to do. I get butterflies on my way to every shoot, I stay up really late editing & dreaming up my next ideas, & delivering memories that clients will treasure for a lifetime makes me happy. It's that simple.

I remember my very first Barbie camera that I had when I was about 4 years old. I haven't been without a camera since. I'm the friend who has to ask for a group photo just to be in a shot, I was the yearbook photographer, & my phone constantly tells me it's out of memory from the 12,000+ photos. (Whoops!) From a young age, I valued photographs - a moment in time that lives forever. I'm nostalgic like that, & I think everyone deserves to have special moments in their lives captured - & I'd love to do that for you.

Photographing weddings is getting behind the scenes of couples' families & feeling like you've become a part of it. Seriously, I have a very special family I do regular shoots for & they even got me a matching "We Are Family" shirt for their next shoot with me! I felt so loved & included. So, just like family, anything I can do to help a couple relax & enjoy their day - I'm on it. My goal is to make this an easy for you so you can live in the moment & enjoy. 

A few other things about me:

- I live with my supportive fiancé & our 3 beloved fur children: Cashew, Rocky, & Bullwinkle. (I welcome any & all animals at any session with me!)

- I was raised in a military family, traveled Europe as a kid & have lived in 2 countries, 6 states, 15 cities, & 23 homes. If I'm not currently traveling, I'm planning my next trip. For you, this means that I'm happy to travel anywhere to meet you & be your photographer.

- I've spent 8+ years working in advertising & marketing, which has given me some immeasurable experience with clients of all budgets, with people of all kinds, & with consistent creative, aesthetic, & design work. 

- I named all my pets after candy bars as a kid: Snickers, Hershey, Reeses Pieces, Butterfinger, Buttercup, Oreo, Kisses, M&M.

- I got my first job at 16 as a barista & from that moment on knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur.

- I once had a meltdown worried I wasn't good at anything. A wonderful person in my life jumped off the couch & told me "Yes you are! You have IDEAS!" & that is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me. Ideas can take you anywhere & they're what move our world forward. & I realized I've been putting my ideas on paper for as long as I can remember - printed film, a huge binder of years of fashion designs, my dream house floor plans, 3D interior designs, & anything I can't explain in words - is an idea that makes it to paper. 

- I love patterns, symmetry, & wild interior tile designs 

- Almost everything in my house is from West Elm 

- Almost everything in my stomach is from Sweetgreen 

- You probably noticed by now I'm not short-winded story teller 

- I'm really a people-pleaser. If there's something I can do that'll make your day less stressful & put you at ease, I've got it covered. Sometimes that's buckling all the bridesmaids' shoes, sometimes it's secretly removing your mother-in-law's homemade baked goods from your professional dessert table (because you asked me to!), sometimes it's dealing with a difficult DJ who isn't playing the songs you requested. Whatever you need, I have your back. Because - on your wedding day, it's your job to have fun & it's my job to capture all of those moments. 

Can't wait to hear from you! 

xx,

Paige
