I'm a small town turned city girl who is blessed to capture love stories for the classy and lovely bride. Most days you'll catch me on an adventure with my husband (yes, the one who stole me away from small town America) or tickling our little ones who hold our hearts and keep us on our toes. I'm a lover of chocolate, sushi, a good book, and chasing sunsets. Have I mentioned that I love sweets? All types, in all forms. My favorite: Sprinkles Cupcakes. I wish I could say I'm an avid runner but a half attempt is better than no attempt, right? I'm also a mediocre cook and fashionably uncoordinated but hey, there could be worse things. I believe in faith, family, friendships, a good laugh, and pizza Fridays. I'm passionate about living each day to the fullest, choosing joy in the journey, and dreaming big.
I LOVE ALL THINGS JOYFUL, CLASSY, & LOVELY
ABOUT ME PROFESSIONALLY
Over the past 7 years, I have had the privilege of photographing over 100 weddings in Southern California and across America. And although that has been the case, it still doesn't get old and I still get excited whenever a wedding day approaches! I have been a recipient of The Knot's Best for 5 years in a row and have also received their highest Hall of Fame Award. I am a combination of creativity in the craft, skilled in the mechanics, directional in the posing, organized in the schedule, laid back in the approach, and fun in the experience. Of course, there is no perfect photographer but I strive to give my couples a great experience while at the same time capturing timeless images that they can share with the world now, and in time to come.
MY FAVORITE THINGS
DISCOVER THE GIRL BEHIND THE LENSE
We dated 9 months, were engaged for 5 months, then got married. Can you say fools rush in? But really, it's been the best decision ever!
We have 2 boys and 1 girl and love Disneyland, hikes, and our handy trampoline!
I can always go for coffee, breakfast croissants, and a good conversation.
They're so comforting and I think I have an addiction to them!
I'm at the age (over 30) that I almost always go for comfort but once in a while I'll bring out that classic heel!
The love of my life, Edwin
Family time with our littles
Candles flickering throughout the day
The perfect pair of (comfy) shoes
