What I'm about...
I'm about real laughter, genuine connection, and authentic moments, your love is real and there is nothing more beautiful than that!
I know there are few people who truly love having their photo taken, but I also know that so many of my clients say they felt so comfortable and actually had FUN during their wedding photos or photo session, and that makes me SO happy, and is my ultimate goal as a photographer!
By hiring me as your wedding photographer...you will get a laid back, relaxed photographer, someone who truly LOVES weddings, and someone who is head over heels in LOVE with with the thought of making your wedding day, and your wedding photos perfect!
Who I am..
I'm Holly Kangas a photographer who loves to make you feel comfortable and amazing in front of the camera. My passion for photography came from paintings hung around my childhood home that my Grandfather painted. I wanted to paint like him...but couldn't... not even a little bit. So I saved my babysitting and birthday money and bought myself a camera, it wasn't any old point and shoot, it was a film camera, that required setting the shutter speed, aperture, ect. My mom taught me the ins and outs of film photography, and passed on her natural photogenic talent (thanks mom!) and it became who I am, a photographer.
Why I do what I do...
Along with making clients happy the driving force behind my passion are my three amazing kids! Being a photographer allows me to be so preset and connected to them as they navigate life. I am so thankful to every client who has believed in my voice enough to say "you're hired", making my vision of who I want to be as a mom possible. It a full circle kind of thing and it's so amazing, and humbling to be a part of it all.
