A few things you should know about me
(other than my joys listed above):
• I began working with the most amazing family portrait photographer in Los Angeles in my late teens. She taught me so much - I was her assistant, became her primary retoucher, and was apprenticed and poured into for four years. Soon after my time with her I started Aimee Levy Photography and began shooting weddings after being in four weddings within a six month window...I saw how it was done and felt passionate about capturing the love and beauty of these special occasions. Over the years I've slowly transitioned from photographing weddings into more intimate shoots while taking graphic design work on the side. Now I take a mix of both photo and design projects, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
• I love mistakes. They are individualistic and not easily replicated, they are random, they are readily available, and they always tell the best stories. I embrace experimentation in my work, and when I create I make room for those magical oopses.
• When I thought about which career I'd like best, it was either "artist" or "psychologist"...my husband said he couldn't imagine me stuck inside all day listening to other people's problems, and I had to agree - I would much rather listen to them outside with natural lighting making clients look chic-as-heck with my lens in hand. I have always been a total sucker for all things handmade...first clue that the creative path called me.
• Simplicity is my jam. You don't need to add to the story you ask me to tell. Clients' lives and stories are each one in seven billion (and counting), and I think simple is usually best. Don't feel the need to add any zhooshing, because let's all be honest...our differences are the "yaas, honey!" to anything worth valuing in this world.
working with me
Here's the thing, I love what I do - the artistic aspect, the trust aspect, and basically that I get to document people and businesses for who and what they are today. We all grow and morph into things we never imagined - we are all on that personal journey of discovery. Yours led you here onto my webpage (of all places?!), and I'm so happy it did. There really is nothing like the excitement of starting a new project, a new relationship (or phase of life), or even a new business. That's when you're most alive, and that's when I love to come in and visually document the occasion. Available worldwide from the USA.
there's an element out there available to all of us to grab hold of.
it's often felt but not seen.
To wrangle it while loosely gripping a three strand rope in one hand and a tight embrace with the other is as close as any of us will get to experiencing the hidden layers of this life.
