Hey there new friend! Welcome to my little slice to the internet. I’m pretty stoked you found you’re way here. I’m hoping that by now you’ve clicked around and seen enough to want to know a bit more about me.
For starters I am a destination photographer and the Valley of Southern California is where I call home. I specialize in intimate weddings, elopements and portraiture! I have been shooting weddings for about 5 years now and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Getting to fly all over, meeting amazing people in places they love or call home is my muse, nothing excites me more than vibing off what makes YOU passionate.
I am a people photographer, I don’t put you in stiff, hold still poses, I want the real, I want the spin-me-around, I want the laughter, the running, the in-between moments, the real life kinda stuff you’re going to want to remember forever. Hey! I also love that cozy and romantic stuff, too. The photos you’re going to be excited to show your future kids. Also, lets face it, prom poses and stiff smiles are the worst and awkward for everyone in the photo-making process. I say we just hangout and take some cool photos.
Your wedding is one of the most anticipated and excited days of your life, so your photos shouldn’t be boring and your wedding photographer shouldn’t be either. You will most definitely find me right along side you for your whole day, cracking jokes with your bridal party and doing the electric slide with your grandma, all the while capturing the story of your day. So whether you’re having that quiet, romantic dinner party, or that crazy-loud celebration with glo-sticks and champagne… I want to be there! I want to tell the story of the first day of your forever as Mr. & Mrs.!
Maya Angelou said it best:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
I want you to look back at your images in 6 months, 1 year, 1 decade, and remember exactly how you felt in that very moment. My mission is to be vulnerable with you so you can be care-free in your images to be yourself because beautiful things happen outside of our comfort zones. Basically I want you to ugly-cry when you get your gallery back.
Little things in my life that make me who I am are the amazing and supportive family I have here at home, and the friends that are like family that live all over, my frequent trips to disneyland, my wanderlust, my iPhone folders for memes, GIF’s and photos of golden retriever puppies, my love for straight espresso and my fluency in sarcasm, also my loud laugh that you’ll hear from a mile away.
Most importantly, Jesus being the navigator of my life and guiding me on this amazing career path and so graciously bringing me the raddest people that I get to ‘love on’ through this camera in my hands. I feel so confident that this is my gift to serve and create art about the best things we get to share; Love & Life.
1 John 4:19 “We love because He first loved us.”
