From public relations to photography, my heart has always been about serving people first. I adopt a hands-on approach with my wedding couples involving multiple touch-points leading up to the wedding so I understand your expectations and work accordingly.
I coach you through the posing process to create a relaxed environment that results in candid photos to accurately capture who you two really are. Leave the heavy lifting to me - my team and I come prepared with everything we need to document the day with ease and a creative touch!
Born and raised in sunny Southern California, my two decades plus of exploring this coastal state yields all the best locations and lighting knowledge your wedding photos need. Aside from SoCal, past couples have brought me to Alaska, Oregon, and the east coast (to name a few spots), so don’t hesitate to reach out if you’re planning a destination affair!
There are tons of gorgeous mountain wedding venues in SoCal, and I love driving to these destinations! Feels like these weddings are really an escape in nature for the couple and their guests. I know all the best spots for engagement pics too!
Palm Springs + Joshua Tree aren't just for camping or weekend getaways. These places host of the most elegant, luxe wedding venues in SoCal thanks to private estates and modern hotels. I'm all about the pops of color and outdoor receptions in the desert.
I love exploring and photographing cities in SoCal, especially Los Angeles! This is where the culture and art scene of California really comes into play, and I get so excited for couples who are ready to embrace a city-vibe and view on their wedding day.
I spent my childhood by the beach, and for the past 15 years, I've never lived more than 7 miles from the ocean! Water baby all the way. I love beachside weddings, elopements, and engagements, and I probably have my toes in the sand right now.
I first learned to photograph at a professional level back in 2014, but after several years of practice, I finally knew I wanted to pursue it as a full-time career in 2017! This was the year I built a website, experimented with the types of shoots I liked the most, and dreamed about the future (all while still working a different full-time job).
2019 was a crucial year for me! I spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars investing into my business. From buying new gear to attending workshops to practicing new photography techniques, I did everything in my power to elevate my skillset and make sure I was prepared for any situation at a wedding! All the time and effort paid off, and I had a fantastic experience with every single couple I photographed.
After plenty of time in the driver's seat figuring out my place in the wedding industry, I solidified my brand and approach to wedding photography to better serve my clients...just in time for a global pandemic. I quickly pivoted my approach to weddings and photographed dozens of modified celebrations in the form of elopements and micro weddings that felt all the more special in the midst of a dark year.
In the midst of cramming two years' worth of weddings into one, 2021 inspired me creatively to add film into my work as a way to slow down and bring a sense of nostalgia to your wedding photos. I launched a custom heirloom wedding album collection this year so you can relive your wedding photos through a distinctly tangible experience. This year gifted me the chance to photograph some of my past couples again with new babies joining families - what an honor to be a "lifetime" photographer!
I’m excited to continue growing my business in 2022! This year I look forward to creating a separate family photography business to serve all my couples who are adding children to the mix along with continuing to share about my recent print shop endeavor featuring minimalist yet colorful details and landscapes to cover the walls of your homes. Weddings are back in full force on my calendar with even some travel opportunities on the rise. Can’t wait to see where the rest of the year takes us!
I met my husband Manoah when we were both 13 years old! Over a decade later, we are still the best of friends. We live in Sunny SoCal near our friends & fam. On my off days, we tan at the beach, try out a new restaurant, and experiment with cocktail-making in our kitchen.
