I’m a destination elopement + wedding photographer
and documenting genuine moments is my jam.

As a lover of natural light, my heart jumps at the chance to soak up the radiant glow of sunsets, the dramatic mood of blue hour, and the romance that can be found in the pouring down rain. I prefer to embrace any weather condition and I ask my couples to do the same. I believe that even the smallest moment can hold great adventure.

These are the moments you’ll get to take hold of
and enjoy for the rest of your life.

So let’s do it right. You know what I’m sayin’?

I’ve been photographing weddings for nearly a decade,

and I love how each wedding is unique in it’s own way.

I know how much effort goes into a wedding day, down to each little detail. I also know how important it is to make sure you actually ENJOY one of the most special days of your life. What makes weddings jaw-dropping-beautiful to me, is the true, genuine love that is celebrated on that day.

You won’t be left in the dark. I know a thing or two about weddings by now, so I make sure to use that to your advantage. I help create timelines, family shot lists, and connect with you about what is most important to YOU about your wedding day. I use all that info so I can be 100% prepared to work with you on your wedding day, and document it as it organically unfolds.

Your wedding day should feel like the most
epic and romantic date night.

I’m here to help make that happen.

I’d be honored to document your love story.

Average Investment for Full Story Elopement Package: $4,700

Whether you have a big wedding, or an intimate elopement, you deserve the best day ever. As your photographer, sure I can pop in to what you have planned and take photos of all the things and all the moments. But I thrive when I get to tell the whole story. What if we were more intentional with this important day? What if we did all of your favorite things, went to your favorite places (or somewhere new), and created the most romantic celebration?

With the full story elopement package, you’re inviting me to help you craft a day that celebrates who you are as a couple.

Let’s be intentional in every moment, big or small, because your wedding is just as important as big weddings, and that is SO worth investing in.

Want video? No problem.

My husband Nathan and I make a pretty great team. He has been my primary second shooter on wedding days, so he has loads of experience. At the end of 2018 he officially launched his own videography business:

Destination Elopement/Wedding Packages

I travel quite often for elopements and weddings. Custom elopement and wedding packages are available to best compliment your needs. After receiving information about your day (where, when, and how long you’d like coverage for) I will get you a custom quote including all travel costs. I always plan all the travel and accommodations on my end for your big day. You have other things to focus on than what airport I’d prefer to fly out of. :)

Don’t let distance keep us apart! I currently live in Seattle, Washington but I’m back in Orange County, California A LOT, as well as lots of other places around the world. Moments of genuine human connection across the globe seriously amps me up – way more than coffee ever will.

Wherever you want to take me – I’m down.
