THE INDEX

MORE OF MY STORY

Your love story is wondrous, unique and worth sharing. I am passionate about storytelling, and I’d be honored to share my gift with you. I strive to create imagery that is emotional, evocative and authentic. I love the candid moments, the immense joy and the unbridled excitement of the wedding day. Feeling chemistry with your photographer is the most important step to creating authentic photographs. I’d love to set up a time to hear your love story, and we can talk through how I would work to capture your wedding or event.

WHO I Am

When I am not working on photography, you will find me tending to my succulents, dancing with my girls in the kitchen, and perfecting my grilled cheese sandwiches. I earned my MFA in painting and love that I get to translate my knowledge into the medium of photography. I believe that the journey itself is the best and most beautiful part of life.

"I strive to create imagery that is emotional, evocative and authentic to you."

I am a Santa Barbara native and a beach girl at heart. I have two daughters and an incredible husband, who wooed me through his kindness, laughter, and ability to bring the best out of me. 

There is nothing like adventure and getting lost with someone to know you have found the love of your life.

I'm all about finding gorgeous light, creating community, and pursuing that effortless, minimal style.

I believe in lazy french toast mornings, long kisses, and spontaneous dance parties with my kids.
