Holly has always had a passion for photography since she was a little girl, and to be able to fulfill her dream of sharing her passion with others has been a blessing.

She loves shooting weddings. Everything about them just makes her heart happy. The little winks & smiles passed between the groom to his bride, the ring-bearer who fell asleep during the ceremony, to the crazy grandma getting down on the dance floor acting like a 20-something year old again. She loves it all.
