destination photographer weddings & portraits
With a one way ticket across the country chasing California sunsets and seeking new opportunities, I found myself on a mission to freeze time and capture the fleeting moments that pass us by, tuning them into timeless memories.
I am a wedding and portrait photographer who found my true calling in telling love stories.
As a girl who grew up in the midwest with aspirations of shooting fashion in New York, that quickly took an unexpected turn after I photographed my first wedding over 14 years ago. The real emotions, genuine connections, and timeless moments of that day ignited a passion within me to narrate captivating love stories through my lens. Over 250 weddings all over the world, the rest is history.
My photography style is an exquisite blend of effortlessness, editorial elegance, and candid authenticity. I believe in freezing the most precious moments in time, crafting a visual narrative that speaks of genuine emotions and unscripted laughter. Every shot I take is a piece of art, meticulously composed to reveal the unique essence of each couple's love.
I find my inspiration by embracing the subtleties that make every love story extraordinary. With formal training from some of the best teachers in the world today, and a keen eye for detail, my ultimate goal is to document your love for you to relive every time you see these images, and not just you. I want future generations to pull out their parents wedding album and get lost in the images, feeling as if they were present on that day too and experiencing their parents young love.
Collaboration is at the heart of what I do. From the bustling energy of the bridal preparations to the magical "I do's," I seamlessly integrate into your day, working closely with couples, planners, and the vendor team to ensure that your wedding experience is stress-free and that you stay fully present in every moment. Through my lens, I capture the stolen glances, the joyful tears, and the heartwarming laughter, preserving the authentic story of your union.
Thank you for considering me to be a part of your cherished moments. Together, let's transform your love story into an enchanting visual journey, something that will outlast generations.
This exciting time is the most magical. I've found the man of my dreams and it's all unfolding better than I could've dreamed. These moments are priceless.
John and I were best friends from about 15-19. We kept in touch throughout the years and I ALWAYS had feelings for him. He was the person I looked for when dating others. I often day-dreampt of being with him and what that would be like. In 2021 I made the leap of faith and told him in person I had strong feelings for him and a few months later we were dating long distance and talked about marriage that following fall. He proposed on the coast in Malibu and it was the best day of my life. I'm truly married to my best friend and I know that sounds so cliche but we often talk about how lucky we are to have the history and friendship we do. It's like friendship on fire with so much love and acceptance.
