In the past 4 years I have had the privilege to shoot my two younger sister’s engagement sessions. My youngest sister is getting married this fall and so naturally I had them get dressed up, go to the forest and explore the woods with me for their shoot. They danced, played tag, pointed out poison […]

If you ever meet Brianne you immediately know she has a contagious smile and a joyful spirit. After meeting Dustin I could see he had the same spirit. The two of them all day could not stop smiling and holding each other. It was the perfect example of a beautiful start to marriage. While Covid […]

I always feel honored to shoot my friends engagement session’s. Due to COVID we had to reschedule this session a ton but man I am so thankful it worked out because telling a little bit of their story on camera was truly a gift for me in this season. They sang parks and rec. songs, […]

A lot has changed in this world within a couple of weeks. Truly heartbreaking on so many levels all over the world. For Sam & McKenna they went from a big Sonoma County wedding to an elopement within weeks. This would be earth shattering for most but for these two they chose to look on […]

I get asked this question roughly 40 times a year. I love that every couple asks me this question, because what you wear to a session effects how it will turn out just as much as the location. Think of this as a puzzle. You have to get all the puzzle pieces in the right […]

Lately my favorite place and where I feel at most at peace is in the mountains and forest. Every couple years it shifts for me and thats what it has been for 2020 so far. (For those wondering 2016 was the ocean, 2017- 2019 was the desert). So when Melissa and Chris wanted to do […]
