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?
With so many amazing people that this business brings into my life it has been fun to put myself out there and break down walls. Jasmine Star wrote this amazing blog post (in her archives) called Personalize Your Blog Post… For Your Business. This post really flipped a switch with me and I learned quickly the importance of sharing your heart, asking silly questions, and even posting somethings you’re not a fan of… I mean really isn’t that how we met our best friends? “Oh you hate this or that?” “I thought I was the only one!” BOOM. BFF’s FOR LIFE.
So here goes a fun spin to this idea. All of these listed below describe bits and pieces of me.
I never wash the knife after cutting up fruit, just a quick rinse will do the trick.
Nothing drives me more crazy than people stealing my french fries.
I actually have more fun wrapping presents than shopping.
At least twice a day I wonder what my dog is doing at home… wish I could text her.
My very best friend has been in my life since kindergarten, but we officially became besties in the 3rd grade.
I only have four hairstyles. Curly/Straight/Top Knot/Happy Dog (My boyfriend Thomas came up with that name! It’s when I leave the house with wet hair and stick my head out the window to make it wavy and crazy. It’s actually his favorite!
I always complain during a workout, but that natural high after makes it’s so worth it.
My thumb hurts sometimes from being on my phone too much.
