My Story of Love

An iPhone capture of our first big trip together (a cross country road trip CLT -> RENO and back!) taken at Lake Tahoe

Confession: Like many other photographers, I have had a lifelong love affair with photography. Growing up and using a little Canon Powershot to capture plants and insects around my neighborhood, and inheriting a Minolta XG-A to use throughout high school to freeze more “artistic” scenes and practice the basics, then in college with my Nikon D-5000 to finally learn the modern technological side of the art I love til now – I have seen and documented everything I love(d) through the lens of a camera.

I don’t love bugs anymore like I did when I was a kid 😅But throughout owning all of these cameras and all the adventures life has blessed me with thus far, nothing changed my perspective as much as falling in love with my person.

Don’t get me wrong, I had been in love before I met my husband. I made sure to document every little thing along the way and I savored every minute, because who doesn’t love being in love? But for some reason I didn’t always feel connected to the couples I photographed. I always felt like I was an arm’s length away during someone else’s wedding day. You always hear, especially at weddings – “You’ll know when you find the right one!” I’m definitely not a pessimist, but I just didn’t feel it when people would say that.

I always thought that maybe I was a little awkward, and just wasn’t meant to connect with every couple I come across. Ha! I’m still capable of being awkward I’m sure, but I can tell you about the very first wedding I photographed after meeting my husband. It was unlike any other wedding I had documented – I was absolutely elated the entire time.

Our wedding in November 2017 – thanks Ruby Peoples Photography for always being amazing!

Every moment of bliss – I shared. Each glance they stole – I saw it. I loved my job before, but now! Man, there really are no words to describe. I fall in love all over again after every engagement session, every wedding; the first thing I do is call my husband to tell him how much I love him and how much I love our life together.

I am so thankful to be at this stage in my career and personal life, I am so full of love and life! And I think it has made me better all around! I am so excited for all of the couples I get to work with in 2019 and beyond, I can’t wait to create more art together and freeze some of these unforgettable moments! 💗

Sweet words from clients

Paige was fantastic to work with from the moment we met her. She was a complete professional throughout the whole process while maintaining a calm confidence. Weddings can be stressful and chaotic but by doing her homework ahead of time she new what kind of photos we wanted and kept everyone on schedule. Thank you Paige for an amazing day!

What can I say about his amazingly talented artist! Paige has this magic ability to capture life and light in her photography. I have used her for newborn photography & family portraits. Recently she has shot my boudoirs and let me tell you she makes you feel comfortable & confident! Her process is professional from shooting to post editing. Her natural look is by far one of the best in our area and I myself am a photographer so I wouldn't trust anyone else unless they have the same level of attention as Paige. I cannot say enough about her!

We first met Paige as our wedding photographer back in 2013! She did a wonderful job capturing every moment of our wedding, she was also super creative in capturing my bridal portraits! Most recently, she shot my maternity photos and will soon become our family photographer. She is creative, personable, and a joy to work with! She gives great direction and waits for the perfect snap to show the personality of a couple.
