A Los Angeles, California native but current Atlanta resident, Arianna has been exploring, learning, and loving photography for five years. With a Bachelor's of Fine Art in Art from Valdosta State University and her concentration in photography, she plans on further pursuing her education by working towards her MFA at the Savannah College of Art & Design located in Atlanta, Ga.
Her passion for photography began her sophomore year in college and has grown since then. Fashion and editorial photography are the styles Arianna is most intrigued by, however she is not opposed to wedding and boudoir photography as well as clean, simple portraiture for her clients. Besides being accepted into numerous school exhibitions and contests, Arianna also placed first in the Southwest Georgia College Art Invitational. She was awarded Best Photographer at one of her school organization's award show, and also shot and worked for numerous events on her school campus such as the senior exhibition catalog, the VSU retirement luncheon, and the title of Director of Photography for the Valdosta State University's campus magazine called On Tap. She was also extremely humbled to be featured in the BOSS Spotlight section of BusyBizOwner.com blog. Lastly, she held the position as historian for H.E.R.O.E.S H.I.V./A.I.D.S. service organization, currently is the official photography intern for Eboni Ife', the fashion blog director of The Fashionista Next Door LLC and is also the photographer for BOSS News Atlanta magazine.
Though her list of artistic influences could go on forever, Arianna is most influenced by the beautiful works by Amber Grey, Lara Jade, Annie Lebovitz, Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann.
