I have been photographing professionally for fourteen years and capture mainly weddings (with family shoots and fun events sprinkled in here and there)!
I was also the Global Peace Foundation's main photographer at hundreds of national and international events at venues including the United Nations Headquarters, The World Bank and Capitol Hill.
I have shot at over 45 wedding venues (with some favorite repeats) in the past two years since moving to San Diego! I am grateful for all of the amazing clients that have allowed this transition to the west coast to be so seamless.
I work with each couple to create a wedding day schedule that is unique to their wants and how they want to enjoy their day. On the big day, I always suggest that couples put away their phones and let them know I got it. I want them to be in the moment and just enjoy, letting me make sure everything runs smoothly and gets captured.
My style is modern artistic and documentary, capturing weddings with a natural look that portrays the romance, excitement and joy of the big day. My favorite photos to take are fun and dreamy. For couple photos, I do a mix of formal and semi-candids, with a lot of guided action shots (walking, lifting, hugging, and more) so it’s really creating authentic experiences with genuine expressions that you can look back on and remember how amazing it was in that moment (not how microposed it was).
Every chance I get, I go outdoor rock climbing, hiking and traveling. I love everything adventurous and fun, always trying to live life to the fullest. I bring that to my photography, striving to take photos full of life and showing the natural raw beauty in new and creative ways. I have an amazing life partner and best friend for 12 years, Ryman, and we take our tiny house truck all over the States exploring.
