Welcome. I'm so glad you're here. If you're bride, a couple, a family or an individual who believes connection and the authentic human experience holds value over planning and the perception of perfection, then we are a perfect match.  I'd love to be a part of documenting your story and your experiences.

I would love to join you in celebrating your love and journey into marriage. Wedding packages range from $2,350 - $2,850.  Please inquire with me via the contact form to chat over a cold brew or a cup of coffee about how I can help you complete the vision of the most important and happiest day of your life.

 

Ever wonder why shooting with me is such a good time? I’m laid back but directive. I’m a master at candids and at getting that shot your grandma will want to put on her mantel to show off to all of her friends. I’m fun and personable without being distracted. I’m organized without being stressed. I will make sure your day goes according to plan. I’ll straighten out those rowdy groomsmen and make sure every detail is perfect. I love getting to know you, your bridal party and your guests. I’ve also been known to shed a few (alligator) tears. I love immersing myself into your day and your story.

I cannot praise Jessica’s talent enough. She’s masterful behind the camera and stunningly captured the best moments of our wedding day.

Engaged


Engaged


You're engaged! Engagement stories are my favorite.  There's nothing better than getting to join in on the excitement of a newly engaged couple (especially when I get to be there for the big question.)  Take this opportunity to document this super happy and fun time in your life as you start your journey together.  It is also great to have really nice photos of yourself NOT in your wedding attire.  Lets hangout, drink some beers, walk the beach, hang out in an orchard, roam around a city or set up an adorable picnic.  You won't regret it.

Together


Document the best years of your life.  

Whether its just the two of you or a bundle of dirty hands and messy hair, I believe in documenting the story of your family as often as possible.  Fill your walls and your albums with moments frozen in time of your family throughout the years.  It is an investment you'll never regret. My family sessions are a mixture of play and portraits and are meant to embody your personal style and story.
