A San Diego photographer chasing dramatic light and heartfelt celebrations across the globe.
MY FAVORITE PHOTOS
I’VE EVER TAKEN WERE
CAPTURED IN THE RAIN.
As a San Diego photographer who grew up in Arizona and Pensacola, I’ve experienced just about as much sunshine as I have cozy southern hospitality. And while a sunshiny wedding day is any bride’s dream, there’s just something about a radiant white gown against a stormy sky that can’t be beat.
Known for my ability to capture a mood before it vanishes in a blink and create art out of even the most challenging lighting scenarios (bring on all the direct sunlight and late-night candlelit venues!), my photography captures more than moments. It captures feelings.
But don’t let all this moody talk fool ya! What I’m most known for is the absolute joy that floods the experience from the moment you book! And who wouldn’t be joyful when your work never feels like work because you get to spend your Saturdays telling love stories. But I do take a weekend off every now and then to slip into sweats and bake or be creative (snuggled up with my pitbull, Mako, of course!) while watching Friends for the millionth time. But I also never say no to getting dressed up for dinner and drinks downtown with my closest besties or a walk around Coronado Island with my Navy-pilot of a husband.
Want to come dance in the rain, snow, wind, or sunshine with me?
What can I say, I’m obsessed with wedding dresses! This is the most beautiful dress you’ll ever wear, so I make sure to capture it in all the cinematic beauty it deserves.
2. ROMANTIC LOW-LIGHT
Flickering candlelight, twinkling fairy lights, and a setting sun filtering through your venue windows are some of my favorite lights to photograph. I don’t fear low light—I seek it out!
3. FIRST DANCES
This is one of the most romantic moments of your wedding day, so you better believe I’ll be documenting every dip and twirl! I love applying a black-and-white or grainy texture to really capture the romance of it all, too.
4. THE MOMENT EVERYTHING JUST…CLICKS
I live for the moment when you start feeling comfy in front of the camera and realize, hey, I can actually do this! And I promise we’ll get there—I’m an expert at helping you feel like a natural in front of the lens!
5. WHEN YOU FIND THE PHOTO THAT MAKES YOU GASP
The look on your face when you see him for the first time on your wedding day. The soft smile on his face when you weren’t looking. The laughter of your wedding party as they plan an end-of-the-night prank. There are so many moments from your day that you’ll witness for the first time in your gallery…and I can’t wait for you to see them!
6. Delivering galleries that will transport you
back to that special moment.
Your favorite photo might not be the super-posed image your grandma can’t wait to put on her mantle. It might be the spontaneous kiss, soft glance, or dreamy moment during your first dance. No matter which once-in-a-lifetime moments you can’t wait to live, I’ll make sure you can relive them for decades to come!
