HELLO FRIENDS,
 

 

Irma here and I can't wait to learn all aboutcha

Helping you create a perfect plan for your special day is important to me. I’m a professional third wheeler and I promise to capture those little moments and the big feelings. Laughter and the fuzzy feeling of love are my favorite human qualities. Let me craft your atmosphere in just the way you imagine it.

I moved across the country at the end of 2017 with just a car packed to the brim with stuff. No job or place to live. I knew I needed to be in a city near the mountains and fresh air - photographing life as it happened. Here I am in Denver. Full time photographer. Going to the Rocky Mountains every weekend that I can and hopping on planes to other pretty places for people like you. Thanks for making my dreams come true. I couldn’t do this without you.

WHAT MATTERS TO ME

  • KINDNESS. Heart means everything.

  • LISTENING. Your thoughts are important. I value what you have to say.

  • SHARING IDEAS. We grow when we learn from one another.

  • EQUALITY. The LGBTQ community and every color/race/body shape matters.

  • MY PLANET. There’s no Planet B. Respect the Earth. Learn about National Parks.

  • LAUGHTER. I believe true connection can be made through deep belly laughs.

BACKSTORY BEHIND THE LENS

I grew up in the amazing city of Pittsburgh living on the same street as my grandmother, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Having a big family so close to me, love and patience was always #1. My parents taught me to always be kind to the people I met and to be humble. Everyone has their own struggles and strengths. That has stuck with me from the beginning and I try to remember that every day.

My parents and I moved to a small town outside of Atlanta when I was in middle school. I was home schooled for a year and loved it. That was when I realized I was truly an introvert - a lover of books, art, and small groups of people to really connect with. Taking after my art loving mom and my dad who shoots film, I knew I wanted to pursue something in the arts. My first photo class in high school made me fall in love with photography. After that, I never put down a camera.

My free time was spent in the photo pit at concerts. In college, I took film classes and shot photos of everything to develop in the dark room. I then decided to immerse myself completely and achieved my degree in photography. At 23, Colorado became my ultimate destination. With my savings money gathered from shoots, the decision to move was made with my boyfriend and his husky.

For the past decade since high school, life has included shooting hundreds of bands in Southeast venues and madly in love couples across the US. I love getting to snap quick moments as they happen, so that the people in them can look back and remember the feeling. Spending time with couples deep in love and musicians passionate about playing music makes me love what I do.
