At 18 years old, she found herself without a family. Soon thereafter, a scholarship brought her from her home in Brazil to the United States--alone. Four years ago, she photographed her first wedding. Now she photographs 50 weddings per year, and is an ambassador for Wescott and MagMod.

By most standards, the story of Cami Grudzinski could be considered a tragedy--unless you talk to Cami! Listen in and hear her vibrancy, gratitude, and enthusiasm for life . . . and how the pursuit of Photography changed everything for her!

"I got tired of people telling me what to do or not to do. I got tired of life bringing me all of these blocks on the road, and I decided to do what I wanted--to follow my heart." -Cami
