I stepped into the Metropolitan Opera House for the first time on a trip to audition for music school and was completely in awe. I wanted to believe so badly that one day, I too would stand on that very stage and look out on a filled house – a feeling I imagined to be so magnificent that it would take my breath away. It was that pursuit of a career in opera (& finally being in the same place with my now husband, then boyfriend) that led me to cold winters of New York City from the warm climate of Southern California. It didn’t take me long to realize that I wasn’t built for the business and that the career didn’t encourage the kind of life I wanted so I quit. Several years later, when I began to photograph weddings & people, I experienced such joy and love, and it was as if a light went on – I knew I had found the perfect fit for me and it has become one of the greatest gifts in my life. There hasn’t been a day that I’ve missed singing or questioned if I made the right decision. Still, the Met has always held a special place in my heart because it was a place that allowed me to dream.

So when my fabulous clients, Paige and Scott, told me they wanted to do their engagement session there, I was beyond excited. We had the place to ourselves and it was completely magical – just like the way they are together. Paige + Scott, thank you for being you and for allowing me to dream new dreams.

xoxo,
