With that being said, I have been able to find excitement in things like weekend camping trips with my boyfriend, Brady and indulging on good beer, all things potatoes and playing oldies so loud that neighbors get to enjoy it too ;) I have a bachelors of arts in communications from San Francisco State and I value that education greatly. (yes, even as a photographer) I am ALWAYS looking for ways to stay educated beyond school & I often find my earbuds flooded with podcasts from business, to self help, to finance, to bachelor stars (guilty pleasure) to Oprah. I love learning new things and hearing random facts that start with “ Did you know…?”

My business evolves along with me & I am always finding new ways to level up & get better. Because no shoot is ever the same, I continuously find myself gushing over how much I love this job of mine. It’s truly so much fun & makes all the hard work worth it. If I am lucky enough to get you in font of my camera, I know you’ll get to experience what I’m talking about!

I’m a constantly changing and growing creative who found her love for entrepreneurship in photography. My camera has been my vehicle to combine my inherent creativity with my love for people and connection. I gravitate towards the things that are not forced in my own life and in the wedding days I get to be apart of.

Finding a life outside of this career has been the biggest challenge for me overwhelmingly the last couple of years because I have an unwavering drive to succeed. (If the enneagram test means anything to you, I was a 3w2 when I took it.)

This is who I am

We share a love for old school rock n' roll, 90's punk & the Star is Born soundtrack.

we met in 2016

He's my partner in crime & my trusty right hand man on my destination weddings.

Went to hawaii for a wedding 2018

While I was in college completing my degree, Brady was in the fire academy & starting his career as a Firefighter. We both graduated at the same time & began our careers side by side.

started real life together in 2019

a little
peek at us

say hey!

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
Brady and I live about 20 minutes east of San Francisco in the California Bay Area & I love it here. Between the redwoods and the ocean, I’m a California coast girl through and through.

DO YOU TRAVEL?
 100%. Traveling is something I have in my journal to make sure I make time & space for in my life, forever. I love that I’ve been given opportunities to travel for weddings & couples sessions & I always welcome more!

WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH?
As I touched on a bit above, I’m someone who craves connection and authenticity in life. I see that come out in my work as well. I like to call myself a professional facilitator as I am strategic in giving space for real moments to happen without having too much of a heavy hand in directing. I want to set my clients up for success and beautiful photos while allowing them to tell their own story!
