I'm a wedding and lifestyle photographer located in Southern California. I love traveling, trying new things, being outside, and making memories with those around me. I've been taking photos professionally for about 4 years now but have known I wanted to be a photographer since I was 15 (for real). I never feel more alive than when I get to document beauty, love, or creativity. I'm blessed to be able to call this my career and am so thankful for the people and places it has taken me to.
There's nothing better than feeling passionate about something.
I gather my passion for photography and creativity from a lot of different areas in my personal life and put my all into the photos I take. I'm constantly inspired by my faith, the love, grace, and worth I have received from Jesus is the thing that brings meaning to my life and work. I'm inspired by my husband, the way he pursues me, encourages and supports me to follow my dreams, and the way he accepts me for who I am. He's my best friend and things are always more fun when he's around. And lastly, I find inspiration from the multitude of insanely talented and creative people I have in my life that have helped me get to where I am today!
I love raw, natural moments and I try to incorporate that into my photography. My goal is to make you feel something through my work. Having your love documented is special and, in my opinion, shouldn't be stiff, posed, or uncomfortable. You don't have to be a model to look bomb in front of the camera. It's my job to help incorporate you into your photos, the sly smiles, the sneak kisses, all of it.
I want to create something with you that captures the best of you and your love. Years from now, I want your photos to be treasures that remind you of sweet memories. Let's make some magic together!
How long have you been taking photos?
Like I said above, I've known I wanted to be a photographer since I was 15! I got my first camera when I was sophomore in High School and started out taking photos of my friends and landscapes. I decided to study art and photography in college and later on had an internship with a wedding photographer (sup Lauren Scotti). Through that I became familiar with the wedding industry and taking photos of couples. It's been almost 4 years since then!
Why did you become a photographer?
I became a photographer because of how awesome and inspired I feel when I'm taking photos. The challenge of constantly having to push yourself creatively has become something I thoroughly enjoy and look forward to!
How much do your services cost?
These are all starting prices, I'm more than happy to talk about customizing a package for your needs!
What's in your bag?
I have a Canon 5D Mark iii, 5D Mark iv, a Canon 50mm 1.2, Canon 35mm 1.4 ii, + Canon 24mm 1.4
Do you backup your work?
Absolutely! Right after any shoot, I immediately back up the photos to a hard drive and also keep my photos on my memory cards until your photos are safely delivered. I also hang onto your photos for 1 year after your wedding date (but I would encourage you to backup your photos as well).
What if I'm awkward in front of the camera?
That is 100% okay. The majority of my clients tell me they're uncomfortable in front of the camera and it's my goal to make taking photos a fun experience for you! I have a handful of tips and tricks up my sleeve to help you look and feel natural in front of the camera. If this is something you still have concerns about, let me know, I'm more than happy to go into more detail!
