A Welcome Letter to You
I’m so excited to welcome you to Ninety Three Creative! I have been working on this brand for nearly two years and after many long days, and nights, working to find my style and voice in this space, I can’t believe we’re finally here!
My goal for this business is to capture beauty and create a positive space in the world where people can come together. And of course, provide my clients with real value and an experience that would exceed my own expectations.
I want to start off with this relationship by giving you a little more insight into who I am and what I’m all about, extending beyond my “About Me” page. I would love to learn more about you as well, and invite you to send me a note so we can connect!
My start in photography began in 2012, during a high school introductory class and my mom’s 35mm film camera. I quickly fell in love with film and the amount of love and effort that went into shooting and developing the film ourselves, then creating our own prints in the darkroom.
Today, I work with a film lab that develops and beautifully scans the film for me and delivers prints as well. To say that I’m excited to be shooting my couples on film and delivering final images that are timeless in style and quality is an understatement.
Outside of photography, sports played an essential part in shaping me into the person I am today and in turn, my business.
When it came time to name my company, I immediately gravitated towards the number I wore throughout all the years I played softball. My dad wore the number 93 when he played football at Auburn University, and passed the number down to me when I was about 10 years old.
I wore our number, 93, until the very last game of my career at Auburn, at age 22.
Due to the personal meaning and the nature of a playing a large team sport, my number has always felt like an extension of my name. In college, we would sign autographs after every game, and always included our number. Out of habit, I would even find myself signing receipts with my number attached on the end, by accident.
My time as an athlete gave me many things. Friends, new experiences, hard life lessons, but it taught me the value of a strong work ethic, how to be accountable and responsible for your actions, and that there is always room for improvement. It also put me in the position to meet my husband, Braden.
He is my favorite person and truly my partner in life. He also happens to be an offensive lineman in the NFL, which has brought us and our three dogs to Indianapolis.
I want to shoot your wedding on Saturday and cheer on my guy on Sundays. Whether that’s in the stands or on my phone while traveling back from your destination wedding.
– Are you obsessed with your dog(s) and significant other?
– Do you enjoy traveling to new places and/or wish teleportation was a thing already?
– Do most of your paychecks show up at your house in the form of a box from online shopping?
– Is your Instagram timeline full of fashion or magazine accounts like Vogue or InStyle?
– Do you enjoy beautiful things like architecture, art, floral arrangements or calligraphy?
– Are you a sports fan?
If you can relate to any of these questions, I know we’ll be fast friends. And if not, that’s great too. I have always enjoyed meeting and working with new people!
Thank you for being here with me today, and please know that I am here to be on your team!
I would like to extend a special thank you to the people who helped make this day possible!
