BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
Regina as The PhotographerTampa, FL
ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:I am a photographer based in Tampa, Florida. I started my business in 2014 and have been full time for 4 years. I specialize in weddings and portraits, as well as boudoir photography. My approach is to get to know my clients very well before I ever put them in front of the camera. I have in-person or video chat meetings and learn their personalities, likes and dislikes, and discover what they want to accomplish with their images. Taking the time to get to know them really helps them feel more comfortable when it is their turn then to be in front of my camera. I like that my work is authentic and real.
THE STORY:I have been obsessed with slowing down or stopping time with photos since I was a teenager. The fact that you can stop time and capture a moment with a camera always amazed me. When I graduated college, I became a teacher while still doing photography as a hobby. Once I realized I could turn my original passion into a career, I quit teaching in 2014 to set out on my photography adventure and I started charging for my photos. This helped me gain more experience and professional equipment. I never knew my business would become as successful as it has and would grow to feature the amount of weddings I have photographed (which is over 150 now).
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:Last year my goal was to photograph 35 weddings and I did 41 on my own! I was so proud and shocked when I counted them. My work has been published online and in print (in The Knot Florida magazine), but I don't really focus on those things. I admire the couples and clients that have put their trust in me and loved the images I produced for them.
RULES/PRINCIPLES:I love animals (we have 3 rescue dogs) and I believe in rescuing and helping those that are less fortunate beyond animals as well. I also believe in preserving the Earth we live on and taking care of it as much as we can by using biodegradable and other eco-friendly products along with actively reducing consumption and recycling.
HEROES:All strong women and men who stand up for what they believe in.
