Hey there! I'm Liana
I'm an introvert at heart but my love for the arts helps me push beyond the threshold of my comfort zone and discover new potentials and create beautiful connections with others.
Through mentors, peers, masterclasses, and self-discipline, I have become a passionate, well-seasoned musician, photographer, videographer, calligrapher, and artist. My love for the arts has led me to transcend the boundaries of my inner being and share my artistry with others and the world.
I've always been enraptured by all forms of art since I was little and, as I have taken in more of the world, have grown to hold a deeply profound respect for them and their creators.
I began playing piano and cello for weddings when I was in high school and was fascinated by the knowledge of the photographer. When I saw the way they were able to capture so much emotion in each and every one of those gorgeous pictures from that day, I knew I had to dive into the vast realm of photography and, later on, videography. I've taken masterclasses with famous wedding photographers including John Branch, Kesha Lambert, Michael Anthony, Taylor Jackson, Joy Michelle, and Pye Jirsa and videographers Matt Johnson, Jared Haskell, Alexander Ma, and Parker Wallbeck. Furthermore, I've taken courses led by Taylor Jackson who teaches the skills and techniques needed for the specialty of shooting hybrid weddings (meaning both photo & video). I have come to love every aspect of photography and videography from nailing the nitty-gritty technical aspects to capturing the overarching aesthetics of the composition to create and tell the story. Since I am a piano/keyboard music major from Baldwin Wallace's Conservatory of Music, I also have knowledge about audio editing and the music. Above all else, the collaboration behind it all and the meaningful connections that come of it are what I cherish and value the most. So let's connect and start planning the perfect way to convey your beautiful story.
Snapshots Full of Profound Emotion and Memories

Where are you based and do you travel?
I am located in North Canton, OH, but I can certainly travel to you to get those perfect shots! Depending on distance, there may be a travel fee. We can discuss this in our consult and everything will be outlined in the contract.
What gear do you use?
I understand that gear is no substitution for technique and knowledge, but professional grade cameras and gear can elevate great photos to stunning photos.
My main camera is a Sony A7riii with dual SD card slots. I also use a Panasonic G7 as another backup and to cover extra angles for video. The third camera I use is the DJI Pocket Gimbal 2 Camera mainly for capturing video.
For off camera flashes, I use Godox flashes with several flash modifiers (soft boxes, gels, grids, etc.) to adapt to various lighting situations.
