I met Hayley via social media when I was reaching out to her for a fun creative shoot a while back. I had no idea at that point we would become friends and I would shoot their wedding someday. It was truly an honor and I still have to pinch myself that I got to […]

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 […]

Wedding Dress: Bliss Bridal

We first celebrated our little man at the local blueberry farm: Duckworth Blueberry Farm. It was a simple way to start the day with the three of us and it was beautiful. The Party: Space themed and filled with people we love.

We adventured the parks in a snow, hail and rain storm. It was worth it for the adventures we had, but as you can see most these shots are a little grey and lack color due to how bad the storm was. Only slightly bummed about not being able to see the colorful springs more […]

My bucket list shoot was always to shoot in front of the Tetons. Now despite not being able to see them fully due to the fog/clouds it was still as epic and romantic as I expected it to be. Safeena and Conrad traveled all around with us for hours finding so many little photo op […]
