I've been a San Luis Obispo based wedding photographer for over a ten years, capturing the celebrations of head-over-heels in-love couples.
Fine-art with a twist
for the classic, romantic & funky
My work has a hint of fine-art with a focus on capturing the connection between my couples and the fun they had on their wedding day.
When you look at your photos, I want you to completely relive the best weekend of your lives. To remember the joy you felt being surrounded by all your favorite people. The excitement as you got ready. The cheers at your first kiss. The calm of your sunset portraits. And the wildness of the dance floor.
I Believe In
Family. Integrity. Commitment. Adventure. Hard work. Helping others. Self-care. Friends. Creativity. Beautiful light. Faith.
...And a great party.
What I'm known for
Brunch. Brunch. And more Brunch.
Dark floral dresses.
Hearty meals and 1-on-1 quality time.
My overly expressive face & bad handwriting.
Hazy IPAs & whisky sours.
When I'm not at a wedding
(Pre-Covid of course) You can find me enjoying the Central Coast with friends & family: visiting local breweries & wineries, anywhere you can entertain a toddler & a baby, or hosting dinner & game night.
Also maybe at Target.
My solar-engineering husband, Andy, and I are Cal Poly SLO grads and college sweethearts. We got married in 2012 we’ve been enjoying the #SLOlife ever since. Bruce, our french bulldog is adored by all. In spring 2018, we became parents to a baby girl, Bishop, and in 2020 we welcomed her sister, Cabrillo (Bri). We named them after peaks in our local mountain range.
