As many of you know, I have been going to festivals as often as I can for years now- from Bear Creek up in Live Oak, Florida and the Electric Daisy Carnival in Orlando, and all the way up to Roxbury, MI for the Electric Forest Festival. Since I first saw the promo video for it, my little nomad spirit was overjoyed and I couldn't wait to experience the magic first hand! I've got an amazing opportunity to go again this year, and this time I am applying to become one of their official UnMediated Photographers so I can help make all the wild photo ideas I've had wandering about in my dreams since my last visit to the art sculptures, dreamy musical landscape and colorful characters of the Sherwood Forest...
I am so grateful that my photography journey is taking me in this direction, and for all the amazing people it has brought my way! It's amazing how the universe works- how my first series of photos with the amazing acroyoga goddesses Christy & Lindsay and my amazing makeup artist friend Marina of Stylist Orlando brought Alexandra + Alex my way- a Russian couple who met 8 years ago at a festival in Russia who wanted their wedding photos to express their love for each other in the whimsical, steampunk inspired way they met.

My Photo Team focus will be on capturing the bright spirit of discovery the Forest provides for the adventurers, lovers and festival nomads that travel to it! I'd like to create a series of brightly styled and imaginative portraits of individuals, couples and squads in the amazing atmosphere of the Sherwood forest art sculptures during golden hour sunrise and the wild lights of the night. 🌀✌🏼🌻
