A lover of the arts, the chocolates, and the puppies.

If I was like most photographers, I could say that I’ve always had a passion for photography, I was born holding a camera, and it was a dream that ruled my life- but that isn’t true. My passion was like striking a match. It was nothing, but suddenly, it was everything. Here’s the story.

One day I was driving home with my cute husband Shawn. I was browsing my local for sale listings on facebook, and I stumbled across a $200 DSLR. I showed my husband and we decided it would be fun to get a “nice camera” to take pictures of our family. I purchased the camera from a photographer that told me “learn the exposure triangle and always shoot in manual.” These words meant nothing to me, but they sparked the curiosity of what the photography world really was. Through lots and lots of practice I slowly realized that my passion lies in weddings. I adore weddings, love, and couples. I love being a part of the atmosphere of support and love. It is an amazing thing to be completely accepted and welcome into a family for a day. I have felt such an outpouring of love from the families and couples I have served, and I can't thank them enough. 

When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me snuggled up with Shawn watching reruns of The Office, Friends, or on a road trip to Disneyland. If you have any questions, please contact me! Even if you don't have questions and you just want to go get hot chocolate or pizza, I'm always up for a night out. 

I hope I get the chance to meet you. I would be honored to be a part of your love story.
