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?
In celebration of going full time one year ago I offered a GIVEAWAY to gift a day dreamer photo session. With such a high volume of applicants I ended up selecting THREE!
Alexandra, owner of Over The Sea Photography caught my eye and I’m so happy she applied! This sweet wife, new mommy and new business owner has her plate full! She truly has a passion for photography with an even deeper love for her small family. This combination will lead to continued success and a thriving career. Having a young family motives small business owners more than ever and Alexandra has the fire to succeed. I see the light in her that reflects my inner light and I couldn’t be more excited for her business journey!
Yesterday we met up at a county park to capture head shot updates, behind the scenes photos and content images. There was never an awkward silent moment between us! We have tons in common and it was refreshing to connect with another local photographer with so much heart!
Girl, this Pocahontas hair is AMAZING!
After portraits we spent some time styling instagram photos and continued to chat all about networking, branding and tips to help find balance between work and family!
Thanks so much for a fun shoot, Alexandra! You already have a great foundation for your business and I can’t wait to watch you grow… FAST!
