"In 2007, after I started college, my dad bought me my first camera: a Nikon D70s. It was the most precious gift I had ever received. It allowed me to go through life capturing beautiful memories every single day. Once I began photographing people I realized it was what I was meant to do. After a conversation with a friend, I decided to name my camera Justy. It was at this point in my life that I felt as though I had a purpose. Justy became more than a tool to document moments; it also became my best friend. Without her, I would not have as much passion, success and joy in my life as I do now."

Ade

(ASSOCIATE PHOTOGRAPHER)

Ade's portrait and wedding photography have been featured and published in a number of magazines and on blogs.

"I chose to photograph weddings because of my values in regards to love and life. Those values are driven by the belief that (1) marriage is one of the most important life decisions one can make,  (2) the power of imagery to tell stories, (3) my parents’ beautiful-half a decade long marriage, and (4) the ability to see a great love story (wedding/marriage) unfold before me. I am in love with love stories: real life ones and stories within the context of art: movies, photographs, and tales.

My images are a reflection of who I am: I laugh heartily, I cry when I am happy, I roll with the punches, I love strongly and openly for all to know.  Couples who seek me to photograph their wedding share a similar dynamic with their life partner i.e. they believe that they are each other’s soul mates."
