This year has been one interesting year for us all. Usual years I work 10 months out of the year, however, this year I only worked for 6 months. I sure got in so much in those months from Joshua Tree elopements to Los Angeles elopements to Mendocino weddings. My heart has never been more […]

Years ago Eli and I went on my dream trip to Iceland. I shot in some amazing places that had my jaw literally dropping. During this shelter in place order I have decided to re-edit these to give myself a little hope for travel again in the future. Hope you all are inspired to travel […]

Eli and I have been best friends with these two for about 9 years now. So crazy to even think about really but so thankful for them in our lives. This is the first time I am doing a real photoshoot for them and I just feel so darn honored to do so. I am […]

7 years ago Cash’s family, Swine Country BBQ, catered my wedding. It was amazing and ever since then I have loved seeing their family at weddings I have shot. So excited to be shooting their son, Cash, wedding this next year at Mountain House Estate. Whitney and Cash your humor with each other and playfulness […]

So Lindsay, who is my best friend, called me months ago talking about how her sister wanted a couples shoot and that it would be perfect to do it when they are in town from Texas around Thanksgiving. I was like heck yes I am down and could not think of a better place then […]

First off, these two have my dream dog, a golden doodle. Seriously made me have puppy fever all over again. Second of all, these two are the sweetest and adventured all over the parking garage and alleyways for me. Thank you for trusting my vision and letting me pet your adorable dog. You guys are […]

Pretty sure everyone should do bridal sessions on their honeymoon, especially if it is in Mendocino. Spent the afternoon with these two and it was just so much fun exploring all parts of Mendocino with them. Pretty sure we are lifelong friends now. I think I almost cried over the cookbook they gave me, hand […]

My giveaway winner literally planned the most perfect elopement ever. The original plan was Yosemite but of course its 2020 so I sent her options and she chose Joshua Tree. She found one amazing airbnb, booked a permit to get married in the park and we literally chased the sunset together while eating Mediterranean food […]

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 […]
