It would be easy to post these pictures and to say this was the best trip ever but I am working on being vulnerable with everyone in my life. Kauai was bittersweet. My best friend told me the day we left she was moving away, we got a call for a baby that did not […]

I met Toni & Andrew through our mutual friend Lindsay. The second we jumped on face time and started talking it felt like we had been old friends. Maybe thats what happens when you share a mutual friend or maybe its because these two just have a way of making you feel like old friends […]

You know when you meet someone and they feel like you have been friends for years? Well that was these two. We bonded over our love for food and traveling as well as later the type of music. They had Ben Rector’s I like you as their first dance song. Thats the band that opened […]

So the story of how I met Sadie was a God moment for sure. I happened to shoot her friend Madison’s pictures and before I even shot her pictures she recommended me to Sadie. Within minutes I got a DM from her and within hours we were Facetiming about her wedding and bonding over Jesus […]

Six years ago I fell in love with Olympia Valley Estate and five years ago Eli & I got married here as well as had our engagement pictures taken here. Can you tell I love it? It always feels so good to come back here and relive the memories from one of the best days […]

Dan & Victoria’s wedding was such a special one because they are close friends to Eli and I. In fact when they first started dating I remember Dan bringing Victoria over to our house around Christmas time and we all made gingerbread houses together. I remember thinking I hope these two get married and here […]

Masha and Paul visit Beltane Ranch every year to take in all that Sonoma County has to offer. Paul proposed to Masha in the vineyards at Beltane Ranch so naturally they felt drawn to have their wedding in a place that means so much to them. Masha and Paul’s wedding was filled with family and […]

I met Dotti’s sister Zoe a year ago while shooting her and her hubby at the great sand dunes national park in Colorado. She happened to mention her sister was looking for a wedding photographer and I remember saying without even letting a second go by that I would honored to shoot her Colorado wedding! […]

This amazing Boulder, Colorado session was so dreamy. We were literally in the meadows frolicking in the wildflowers with the mountains as our backdrop. I mean could life get any better? I’ll answer it for you not it cannot! Literally I was stunned at how beautiful this park was and how many wildflowers were all […]

These people are the best. They are my best friend’s best friends if that makes sense. For years (8 to be exact) I have seen them at my friend Sarah’s parties and we have chatted here and there. I dreamed of the day these two would be in front of my camera but more than […]
