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 yes it can! This amazing couple just got married and I was so stoked I got to capture these […]

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 […]

This wedding was a dream! Literally I have dreamed of shooting a wedding here for years.

I could go on and on about these two. Their love for Jesus and each other was so evident. I mean seriously they inspire me so much. Throughout the whole day they just kept smiling at each other and often told me we are just stoked to be married. They could care less about anything […]

My morning was filled with waffles, bacon and hanging out on an awesome rooftop. Sandra and Brad were seriously a dream for this San Francisco in home photoshoot! I loved hearing all about how they met and their favorite places to eat in the city (I can always use more recs.). Here is how they […]

Chelsea and Matti was the first couple I ever got paid to shoot three and half years ago. They paid me in the form of a @williswinebar gift card and I was ecstatic. Ever since then she has had the pictures I took as her profile picture and printed on her walls. She literally is […]

This Joshua Tree photoshoot was seriously perfect. These two are so in love with each other and could not stop smiling the whole night. Made my job easy and so much fun!
