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 […]

This session was one of those ones I came away not only being inspired as an artist but truly being inspired by their relationship and friendship with each other. Not to mention I might have called my hubby and said we need to double date with them someday. They are just one amazing couple and their […]

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 […]

First of all, Jena is stunning and just the sweetest ever. Second of all, I love how we have such similar names. We ventured to Screamin’ Mimi’s pink wall and the laguna trails for her senior session. Jena, her mom, her friend and I walked far into the trails. We saw so many birds, heard […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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!

Covid may have moved their reception to next year but their ceremony was still as beautiful as ever. I feel like I have known Liz for years but its only been a year. She has the best sense of style and loves to be unique. Honestly, I feel like we were so similar as teens […]
