about me

I want to give you a gift. One that is filled with joy, intrigue, gratitude, strength. I gently guide my couples while keeping the couple's focus on the day itself and not on the camera. I want my couples to be able to soak in the meaningful moments.

What inspires me? The perfectly imperfect. The beauty in the chaos. The breathtaking ordinary moments. 

I use film in addition to digital photography because film has a unique way of rendering beautiful skin tones and capturing light to create emotive, nostalgic imagery. 

I graduated with my MFA in 2015. I love art, fashion, and interior design. When I am not taking pictures, you will find me gardening, shopping at the Alameda Antiques Faire, or visiting an art museum.
