Ever since I could remember I've been a romantic. I frequently thought about my possible future of marriage, watched romance movies and just wondered how grand love can be. When I was in the 8th grade I had an epiphany that I wanted to become a photographer, not just any photographer, but a wedding photographer. I knew it would not be an easy task, but at the time I didn't realize all that come with the territory of being a wedding photographer. That Christmas, my father bought me a cheap point and shoot camera. I honestly thought it was the best thing in the world. I brought that thing with me everywhere for the next year snapping random photos of anything I could.
A couple years passed and I really hadn't done much with my dreams of becoming a photographer. I in-fact replaced my dreams with something easier to grasp and went down the road to becoming a chef. Years later I moved to Charleston South Carolina where my roommate had a DSLR camera and was enrolling to the photography program at The Art Institute. I didn't think much of it at the time, but that was the start of something new. Before I knew it 6 months passed and I moved back to Myrtle Beach where I had originally lived. I started taking classes at the local college for culinary, but I daydreamed still of becoming a photographer.
Months later I got laid off from work and I wasn't in many classes for culinary anymore. My life was not going in the direction I had hoped so I decided it was time to reach for my dreams. I remembered a time my old roommate had mentioned he was going to apply for an internship at a local wedding photography studio. I thought this may be a good place for me to start as well. I went up to the studio he had mentioned and was told to shoot the studio manager an e-mail. Much to my surprise the manager replied telling me to come in and offered me an unpaid internship for the next 4 months. That internship is what paved my path to starting my own studio.
