Travel feeds my soul. Yoga keeps me centered. Dutch Brothers 'Annihilators' are liquid gold. Tacos + Margaritas + a live band = the perfect date night. In my dreams I have an amazing edible garden (in reality basil, mint, and 1 lonely lemon tree are the only things I've kept alive for long). My happy place is a dog pile with my 3 Weimaraners and 1 kitty.
I whole heartedly believe that...
*'Life is Grand, Love is Real, and Beauty is Everywhere.'*(*Thanks to Roger Clyne for some of the best lyrics ever written.)
And I absolutely adore what I do. Here’s the thing, it took 1 marketing degree, 3 career pivots, 2 other small businesses, and a milestone birthday to slap me in the face. Life was too short for an unfulfilling career, so I decided to permanently pursue what I consider to be my calling. My husband knew I loved photography as a kid, and bought me a ‘fancy’ camera for that birthday. I started shooting his band, then other bands, then shows, then festivals… Concert photojournalism soon turned into wedding journalism. I wake up every single day SO excited to meet my couples and photograph their memories. Once I found my path, I never looked back.
I am blessed and grateful that I have the honor of documenting love stories and life stories. And I want to be there for you to capture yours! I can’t wait to meet you and help tell your unique story! So send me a message and let’s celebrate!
*HERE'S TO LIFE!*
Things I Love
01. Travel + Adventure
My hubby and I MET in Mexico!! We even had some wedding photos done on the beach in Rocky Point, MX – and yes, those are some of our absolute favorite images!! I LOVE to travel and I find that the more adventurous the couple, the more EPIC the photos. I’ve shot several Destination Weddings and Adventurous Elopements & Engagement Sessions (MY FAV!!), and would love to photograph yours!
To me, these are the most important parts of the day. The in-between moments time tries to steal away. That’s why for much of your day, you’ll see me (or won’t see me) in bushes or behind trees, shooting through windows and doors, looking for other vantage points, and constantly watching & waiting, not only get a different perspective, but also to capture those candid, raw, REAL moments.
03. Black & White
I adore black and white images. They capture the true essence of the moment, they feature the emotion, and they you stop and take a 2nd look. This is why they often-times turn out to be my favorites! That being said, because many couples prefer color, I generally create and deliver only approximately 10% of your wedding images in black & white, unless you prefer otherwise!
THE TEARS TO THE LAUGHTER
Of course, a picture is worth a 1000 words, but here are a few that I believe describes the work I create:
THE FIRST LOOK TO THE LAST DANCE
THE CANDID MOMENTS WHEN TRUE EMOTION SHINES THROUGH...
TO ALL OF THE AMAZING DETAILS THAT MAKE YOU AND YOUR DAY… WELL…. YOU!
Bold, Candid, Creative, Emotional, Honest, Intimate, Joyful, Natural, Playful, Romantic
Behind the Scenes
“I WANT ALL OF MY CLIENTS TO WALK AWAY FROM THEIR PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE SAYING TWO THINGS...”
Still want to know more about me, and also what those 2 things are?
