My name is Sloane Dakota Tucker.
The first (totally unnecessary thing) you should know about me is that I’m obsessed with middle names. My parents came up with this crazy name for me, and so I’m constantly nosy about what everyone else's middle name is. I love middle names so much that they’re featured in my business name AND my pricing packages.
On to the facts: I spent most of my life (and the start of my career) living in the greater Washington, DC area, where I got my Bachelor's at George Washington U. Guess what I studied? Spoiler alert: photography. Now I reside in the Hudson Valley of New York (specifically: Beacon). I guess the mountains called to me.
Other things: I love dogs. I will yell "PUPPY!" at every dog sighting, no matter what, where, or when. I like modern art museums, grocery shopping (yes. grocery shopping.), drinking a single cup of coffee for hours...and alone time. My Meyers-Briggs is INTP, so I'm more about that one-on-one, insightful conversation.
One last thing: I like to dance like no one’s watching. And what I mean by that is at every wedding reception I photograph, I’m dancing like an idiot and shooting (usually) simultaneously, and somehow no one notices. At least I think.
On a serious note: I chose photography because I know that everyone, no matter who you are, is fascinating and interesting and has a compelling story to tell. I think photography is one of the most honest ways to do so. If you agree, I’d love to tell your story.
