You know when you just meet someone and it feels like you have known them forever? That’s Jessi and I’s friendship. We were supposed to have a quick face-time to get to know me and talk about her day and it turned into 30-40 min of talking about all that we have in common. (We […]

Over two weeks ago it was their wedding day. Cannot believe I got to photograph these two again and in my favorite place ever. I think everyone should book a couples session or bridal session right after they get married because a. you will be so comfortable with me by then and being in front […]

This couple and I bonded over our love for Jesus, California and of course food. Charlotte & Logan had to reschedule their wedding from May until Nov and on top of that this venue was evacuated due to wildfires the week leading up to their wedding (talk about stressful). However, they stayed calm and we […]

My first double engagement shoot was a success. We hiked through canyons and Tori even spotted my butt (literally) so I could get the best shots. Met Tori through Naty and man I feel like we all became friends via instagram instantly and then were bonded for life through hiking over some tough canyons together. […]

Meet these two over two months ago pre-engagement and we became friends while avoiding fire ants and the heat in the desert. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, they got engaged & I might have cried and followed their instagram accounts hour by hour that day since Regan told me he was going to […]

Like most 2020 weddings this one was supposed to be at a venue and got changed to her grandmother’s backyard. I have to be honest, I almost prefer simple backyards, national parks or airbnb’s. I love the simplicity, less stress and the focus on the couple. This couple is close to my heart as I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
