Though Gulling has expertise in a wide range of photographic genres, her mission remains the same: To provide people with unique photos that perfectly capture their style, character, and emotion. She'll work with you to create the perfect photos, showcasing your life styles unique dynamic.
She started taking photos in her high school photography class. While attending Des Moines Area Community College, Gulling would spend most of her first year in the dark room creating magic from film photography. Skipping most of her general education classes to do something she loved. She graduated with an Associates in Commercial Arts in 2005. While looking for jobs in that field, she found that nothing really sparked her interest. She knew photography was a strong passion and something she always fell back on.
That fall she attended the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, MT. During her Digital Intensive Program she met people who changed her mind about photography becoming a career and not just something she loved. She didn't want to leave but knew she had to come back home in Des Moines, IA to show everyone what she had learned and to pursue what has now become her entire life, career and passion.
After many jobs including Meredith Corporation, Gannett RTC, and multiple freelance jobs, she made the bold decision to take the big plunge to make photographer her one and only career. After 2 years in Des Moines, IA as a full time photographer she again decided to push herself to do bigger and better. In 2014 she relocated to Kansas City, MO but is now back in Des Moines, IA and commuting back and forth with markets in both cities. She has perfected her craft. "There is nothing like photographing two people in love." She realized that being able to do what she loves for 8-10 hours in a day made her the happiest, combining all dynamics of her life into one unforgettable day!
Her ultimate dream is to gain lifetime clients, from engagements, to that special day, to your first born child, family photos and so on. Over the years she has been perfecting each stepping stone in life's moments to assure her clients only the best experience and quality!
