I have a passion for celebrations filled with natural light, personal details, and timeless style. As your wedding photographer, I know that I have an important job. I work with my couples long before they say their vows, in order to ensure their plans are executed beautifully. I believe that your wedding day should be a reflection of your love, and I am happy to offer my advice and knowledge throughout the planning process. After lots of emails, phone calls, and coffee dates, my clients always feel like friends when their wedding arrives. And I will most likely be crying like a baby at some point during your day. My hope is that through this experience, you will fully trust me in capturing your day so that you can simply enjoy the celebration.
My background in design has informed my approach in framing shots, composing light and capturing spaces. I seek to document weddings authentically, standing back and allowing the day to naturally unfold. I step in and direct poses when needed in order to tell the story of the day beautifully. My hope is that these images are printed, framed and cherished for years to come.
I primarily serve Central and Southern California, however, I am available for travel worldwide. Some of my favorite places include Seattle, England, Switzerland, Iceland and Haiti.
My journey began in a small town in the Midwest when I first picked up my mom's old film camera. After the initial click of that shutter, I was smitten.
While planning my own wedding, I fell in love with all things romantic. I was finishing up my graduate studies at the University of Cincinnati with the intention of finally becoming an architect, however, weddings kept pulling me back. After several friends asked me to capture their big days, word spread, and here I am today. Wedding photography was never my original dream, yet, now I cannot imagine not telling love stories. I feel incredibly blessed to witness and document such beautiful celebrations. And when I am feeling the need for inspiration, I get out that old film camera and shoot some frames of the beauty that surrounds me.
My husband and I currently reside in Southern California with our baby girl. When we are not on an adventure exploring a new city or hiking our favorite trail, we spend our time renovating our home. We also love running, snuggling on the couch, and enjoying simple meals surrounded by good friends.
