hey, i’m adriane!
I grew up in the Santa Cruz mountains among redwood trees and river rocks. Thanks to a point-and-shoot camera and Costco film processing, I could use entire rolls of film to capture whatever I wanted…the mountains around me, my sweet friends, and there was that one time I shot a whole roll of just my feet!
In 2004 I received a B.A. in art with an emphasis in photography. I spent many years having art shows of my photos and paintings as well as performing in theatre and traveling. To support my artist’s life, I began shooting weddings for another photographer. This showed me that weddings are suited for me in so many ways! They’re super creative, high energy and focused on love. After 7 years at it on my own, I’m still inspired by my job. I love my work! I now have a baby boy (Rocco River) who I’m either staring at in person or in photos. He motivates me even more to bring my best to my work. Life is good.
