Your Professional Third Wheel
Hello friend! I'm Irma and I can't wait to hear all about you and your big ol' love story. Helping you create a perfect plan for your special day is important to me. Not only am I a professional third wheeler, I promise to capture those little moments and the big feelings. Laughter and the fuzzy feeling of love are my favorite humans qualities. Let me make your personality shine through your photos.
Here's a little 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.
After finishing elementary school in Pittsburgh, my parents and I moved to a small town outside of Atlanta. 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 film taker dad, 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. 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. Here we are, happy and loving the adventure life.
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 felt. Spending time with couples deep in love and musicians passionate about playing music makes me love what I do.
Take it from Ferris Bueller. This is why I'm here for you. Your wedding day is going to speed by without you even realizing it.
It is a day full of lovin', fun, and all around happiness (maybe some tears too).
I am the fly on the wall - constantly keeping eyes on the toddlers shaking it on the dance floor, the grandparents smiling so big, and dad trying to hold back emotion. It is infinitely rewarding for me to capturing these timeless memories for you.
Take a deep breath, enjoy this moment. Let's create a beautiful work of art together.
