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?
February Creative Challenge | Red Rocks, Las Vegas
This month was all about travels, projects and setting up systems for another busy year! During this time of building and refreshing it’s important for me to knock down some walls [ blast insecurities], explore [stay creative] and kick start my workflow [create a rock bottom foundation].
This February I was invited to join Amber Concept to help support and assist with their booth at WPPI in Las Vegas! As a first timer to WPPI [Wedding + Portrait Photographers International] I was STOKED! I had the opportunity to meet new friends, geek out on the gear and feel like I was in Disneyland for photographers!
On the last day my sweet friend Lindsay and I rented a car and escaped to the red rocks! For as many times as I’ve been to Vegas, I’ve never taken the 20 minute drive to see these beauties!
Spending time with Lindsay is always a joy. We quickly connected over avocado toast + coffee while I was in Texas for a workshop with Laylee Emadi! The Rising Tide Society brought us together, but our friendship keeps us in touch! I’m so grateful for the business women and life long friends that RTS has brought into my life and Lindsay is a perfect example of that friendship!
I challenge you to grab your camera and friend and just goooooo! Pick up a coffee + bring snacks + a water bottle! You may not know where you’ll end and that’s okay! Just do it.
With so much time spent on social media it’s important to make some REAL face time and explore our gorgeous homeland in person!
If you have a burning desire to get out and shoot or try something new… Let me know! I’m always inspired by collaborating and bouncing ideas with others.
