Tell us a little bit more about you! How did you get started in the wedding industry and what do you love most about being in this industry? 
From a very young age, I was interested in telling stories that mattered and sharing them with anyone who would listen. Before starting ARIA Studios, I worked for a local TV station, KGMB9 News, as a reporter and producer. I loved the adrenaline of putting together stories quickly and the deadline of the evening news. But, it was difficult to dig deep and spend time thinking about what stories to tell and how to best tell that story. In 2008, my business partner, Jay, and I traveled to Thailand to work with an orphanage that rescues orphans and at-risk children, and I found my calling. To think of I could use video and photos to help raise awareness and save lives — innocent children’s lives — was life-changing. Shooting weddings came to me by chance but I fell in love with telling love stories. Today, I get to work with an awesome team, with the most awesome people in the wedding industry who truly care about their work and their clients. These industry friends have become like an extended family and they inspire me to be better. We’ve also expanded our foundation to include volunteers and crew solely focused on the foundation’s vision of helping children. I feel so blessed.
