What did you do before you did this?
Before I grew ” Natural Flash ” into weddings I did mainly Equine Photography through friends that showed Quarter Horses just like me! This taught me so many ways to be creative and think out of the box. This also taught me how to deal with so many different types of lighting and situations that sometimes can be out of our control. Horses built me as a person I would like to say and also opened the door for me to weddings through a friend of mine that showed horses.
When and how did you get into the wedding industry?
I got into the wedding industry actually two ways. A friend of mine through horses had recently gotten engaged and she wanted me to do her wedding photos. It was from there I dived in ( scared at first ) but I fell in love. After that, I worked very closely with two larger companies, one out of Miami, and another out of Winter Haven. From there I gained amazing knowledge from some of the industry’s leading wedding photography professionals. It is because of both of these companies I am the photographer that I am today and for that, I am so grateful.
What is the best compliment you have received from your clients?
The best compliment I have ever gotten was from a mom who had just adopted her beautiful daughter. On their wedding day, they officially became a family and it meant everything to me when they told me after getting their photos that I had captured a moment that meant more than they could ever put a price on.
How did you decide on the name of your company?
The name came to me when I was just 16 years old. I didn’t believe in over editing ( or flash at the time haha! ) So I came up with Natural Flash!
