I would like to take a minute to tell you a little something about myself. You might be wondering how I discovered my passion for photography. Was it my dream since I was a little girl? No. It was a long journey filled with challenges and self discovery.
I was born and raised in Lithuania and went to college to pursue my dream of making the world a better place. You might find it hard to believe that I attended the police academy in Lithuania! It was a wonderful experience and I learned so much, but in the end that wasn't what made me happy. After traveling Europe in search of myself I ended up landing an amazing job as a flight attendant! Based out of England, I spent six wonderful years traveling the globe and experiencing different cultures with some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Still, I was looking for something more, my true passion and purpose. I finally discovered that purpose after visiting and falling in love with upstate New York.Given my background, it’s sometimes hard to believe that I ended up a passionate wedding photographer in upstate New York.
I picked up my first camera and started shooting the world around me. Something new and amazing was born inside of me! I realized the thrill of capturing the emotions of life, preserving forever those subtle nuances, often missed and gone in a flash. I realized that this was it. I love the challenge that my work offers me, and I am inspired by the people and places I’ve had the opportunity to shoot. Preserving their memories has been the true joy and passion of my life.
It has been three years now and I still find inspiration in my couples. The joy in their faces and love in their hearts! I feel truly blessed that they have allowed me to share their special day and entrusted me with preserving their memories. I’m honored to have shared their special day and hope that you allow me to share that same passion and experience to capture yours!
