Welcome to the blog, sort of like a digital garden where dreams are planted and grow wild! My name is Quianna and my family calls me “Qui” like key! I’m a destination wedding photographer based in Scottsdale and the Bay Area.
I love adventures and creating memories even more than I love photographing them—and I LOVE taking photos! In addition to capturing weddings, family milestones, and the best memories I also offer business tools, motivation and inspiration to help creatives turn their passions into their profession. We only get this one life, why not live our days doing what we love?
I don’t know where I read this, saw this, or heard this… But a little birdie once told me to photograph with your heart as if a loved one gone in passing or yet to be born can experience life through those photographs as if it’s the only way to see and relive those moments.
I actively try to be present during these times to ensure I feel the emotion within, instead of just snapping away and hoping to get the shot!
I try my best to live my life in a way that would make my own father proud. I guess my calling as a photographer is a chance to create these moments for brides around the world and I couldn’t be more determined and blessed to capture these for them!
I also have a very special place in my heart for our Brothers that hold our hands not only down the aisle, but down this crazy road we call life. They hold us accountable and drive us nuts, but deep down we both know that we only have each other and will know no other love like a brother and sister.
With each photograph I try to tell a story that only the heart can read.
Cheers to our fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, and the strong women in our lives that have stepped up to the plate to help raise us!
