This is the year of elopements and honestly its been so refreshing for me to just document couples in love getting married against all odds in beautiful places. This couple is the sweetest. Always smiling and putting others first despite all that has gone on this year. While their original Joshua Tree plan and date […]

Back at my favorite place once again, Mendocino Grove. It was 74 degrees, and still sunny at sunset. This is very rare for Mendocino and I was beyond grateful. Loved having these two in front of my camera again. It’s been about a year since the last time and man have they gotten even sweeter […]

After years of being instagram friends we finally got to see each other in person again! These two have such beautiful hearts for Jesus, the kingdom, the children of the world and of course each other. An honor to meet them and hope we can do a double date in the future! Here is their […]

Finally got to meet my best friends, best friend. I have heard about how amazing Janet is for years from Alyssa. I felt like we were already friends before we even met so it made this day that much more special for me to document. Janet and David had to re plan their wedding so […]

You know when you hear a story and your heart cannot stop thinking about it. That was this couples story. They have gone through a lot and persevered despite it all. They wanted a magical Joshua Tree wedding and did not how it would exactly work so I helped them plan one amazing day with […]

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 […]

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 […]

Hands down Casey & Alex’s Joshua Tree session will probably be one of the best sessions I have ever shot in my life. I attended the Joshua Tree workshop by Phil and Sara and it blew me away not only to be taught by them but to have some amazing couples to photograph. The second […]

I met Emily I believe a year and half ago at our young adult bible study. She came with her friend Janae and brought even more joy to our group through her smile & love for Jesus. All this to say this engagement shoot was extra special to me. Meeting Dakota was so sweet. I […]

This wedding was one that was extra special to me. I have known Hannah since we were kids since her cousin (and basically sister, Megan) happens to be best friends with my sister. We grew up having sleepovers and hanging out together. So it was truly an honor to capture Hannah & Kelly’s day. It […]

Annie and Sassan won our engagement shoot giveaway a while back on instagram. It has been so fun getting to know Annie over the past month and then meeting her in person. She is seriously the sweetest and not to mention stunning! Getting to document these two was a dream. I loved hearing about how […]

Chris and his family has been in my life for about 15 years (which is more than half my life). We grew up together at church and his older brother introduced my husband and I. Fun fact his older brother was actually on a lot of our first hang out’s or dates. Fast forward to […]

These two have endured so much. This was their third vision for their wedding day and I have to say it was the best idea yet! Rachel, as a wedding planner & bride, made sure each detail even to the color of the glass to the handmade flower pressed name placements were perfect! She was […]

So excited that I finally got my friends to be in front of my camera. This girl and I have bonded over our love for food, Jesus and decor. She is a talented interior designer and has a passion for the minimalist style (my kind of style too!). So happy I got to shoot their […]

These two are the cutest and literally models. They ran all over the parking garage for me as well as sat on their truck and ate pizza. It was that kind of night where the sunset was perfect and the light was spot on!
