Since launching my photography business, I have made a ton of new friends, both online and in-person. Whether you’re new here or you’ve been following along for awhile now, thank you for investing your precious time in getting to know me and my business better. It’s so nice to have you here!

I wanted to switch things up, reintroduce myself, and share a personal post all about me today! When you hire a photographer, we are meant to capture some of life’s most intimate moments for you. I want my clients to get to know the real ME, not some stranger that shows up on their wedding day to snap a gallery of photos. That’s simply not my style.

I don’t know about you, but I love to watch Vogue’s 73 Questions interviews on YouTube. I love the quick impulsive answers and how you can learn so much about your favorite celebrity in such a short amount of time. In order to get to know me better, here is my own rendition of 73 Questions: About Victoria Rose – Part 1! Let’s hop right in!
