What inspired your business name?
After college I took some time to travel to Australia and New Zealand. My goal was to get inspired and come home with a name for my photography business. Along the way I ended up in Christchurch New Zealand and the road I stayed on was Woodville. A friend of mine lived there and they called it Woodville Dream… I instantly fell in love with the name and brought it home.
How long have you been in business?
I have been in business since 2008 and have loved every moment of it. Its been a great journey.
Why did you choose to pursue your current profession?
I chose to be a photographer because I love capturing moments and being able to hold on to them for life. To be able to look at picture and recall the story told by it is one of my favorite things.
What sets your business apart?
My business is a bit different because I never use a studio. I go to all locations and use all natural light. I rarely use a flash and really use my surroundings for light. I have taught myself to make the most out of what is around me instead of using artificial light.
Describe your ideal client(s):
My ideal clients are laid back and enjoy letting me do things out of the normal. They will take a chance to get into the lake and have fun. I love getting to know my clients and just enjoying my time with them.
What is your most frequently asked question from engaged couples?
Do you have a second photographer (depends on the package chosen) and do you give the rights to the pictures taken (yes, it’s part of the Dream Package).
What’s on your iPod, Pandora, etc. while you work?
The Lumineers, Lorde, or Eagles on Pandora!
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
Boating, watch movies, go to new cities to take photos, hang out with my friends. I love being on the water or out in the woods! Outside is the best!
Who inspires you?
Art and people. I love checking out Instagram and seeing people do their thing. I am always looking for new places, trying to find local artists on the street and getting ideas from them. That’s what keeps me going.
Do you have a quote you live by?
There are no rules for good photographs – There are only good photographs ~Ansel Adams
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Photography is my passion I go everywhere with my camera or GoPro just to capture new things. I sometimes do take it all in but I always strive to get better at my photography.
