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?

Have you ever had one of your brides or their mom ask you to photograph the dress on the wedding day? Insert: Eye Roll
YES! Of course you know what you’re doing. This isn’t your first rodeo and you have hundreds of poses, details and photographical moments burned into your brain!
You’re a wedding photographer. You know what you’re doing. You’re the professional. How come they don’t just trust you?
If these moments leave you feeling frustrated and annoyed. I got you, Boo!
It all starts with great communication up front, before your couples even ask! You can post all your favorite images all you want and use social proof to share that you know how to do your job well, but the magic happens behind the scenes!
After booking, I shoot over a shot list for my couples (and their parents) to review. When I ask for any special photo requests, I really mean… Is there anything else you would like to add to the shot list?
By breaking down the wedding day into categories and sharing all of the possible photo opportunities, memorable moments and target photos I’m setting the precedence that I’m confident, capable and well prepared to capture their day.
I always ensure to remind my couples… You can request specific images or group photos before your wedding and on your wedding day, but AFTER it’s too late! So I love getting ahead of the game to get them thinking about their day and anticipated photos way before their day!
Let me introduce you to a brand new customizable template created to fix this problem and reduce your headaches!
