Another year has flown by and going through all of my shoots from the previous months has become one of my favorite rituals. I sit with a hot cup of tea, keeping warm and cozy during these chilly winter days, as I remember with gratitude all of the amazing folks that have chosen me to document their lives.See more “Highlights of 2022”
Best of 2021
2021 looked a lot different than year passed, one reason being that I relocated up to beautiful Olympic Peninsula in Washington and I had to travel down to Southern California for many of my sessions! I feel so honored that so many of you were willing to organize shoots around my travel schedule. I really do have the best clients ever.
My plan is to be in LA in the Spring and Fall and am also booking sessions in the lush Pacific NW (including Seattle/Portland) so please spread the news ❤ And for now, here are a few of my 2021 favorites!See more “Best of 2021”
Best of 2019!
Hi friends & HAPPY 2020! After a wildly busy season of photo shoots & a restorative holiday (in which I mainly spent eating & laughing with loved ones! is there anything better? ha!), I’m feeling so ready to get back to what I love most – making photo magic with YOU!
I couldn’t think of a better way to start of the new year than by sharing some of my favorites from the last. I loved taking a trip down memory lane and, mainly, it just made me feel immense gratitude for all of you out there that chose me to freeze time for you over this past year. If that’s you, THANK YOU! I know there are a bazillion photogs out there and I am really so so honored.
Lots of love & cheers to this year being the best one yet. xxSee more “Best of 2019!”
They do // Intimate wedding in Thousand Oaks
I was beyond honored when one of my favorite clients asked if I would document their intimate civil wedding ceremony on film a few weeks back. Just them, their sweet girl, and me as a witness. Here are some faves from the day.! #bestJobEver

Colorful Los Angeles wedding at The Fig House
Hello friends! Today I am excited to share one of my favorite weddings of the year. Shooting at The Fig House has been on my bucket list for a while (I mean, those colors!) and this gorgeous couple, along with their family & friends, couldn’t have been sweeter bunch. I loved how much joy & laughter filled the air during this love celebration and feel grateful that I got to be a part of it all. Sending out a big THANK YOU to Katie for helping me document the magic of the day!

Groovy kind of love // At home love session in Los Angles
I photographed Sue & Nate’s wedding a couple years back and it was one of THEmost fun, creative, and emotional wedding that I’ve been lucky enough to shoot, so far. Let’s just say that I cried. ALOT. They are a bit quirky with an old fashion vibe going on, so I just had to get them in front of my camera when I started shooting film again. When I arrived at their sweet home, they confided in me that they were expecting (I may have cried again, haha) so that just made the whole shoot that much more magical.
The week of this shoot, LA was brutally hot, so nibbling on watermelon and being outdoors after the sun dropped was perfect. Of course, I couldn’t help but to get a couple shots utilizing the watermelon as a prop since there was no obvious belly yet 😉 SO excited for you, Sue & Nate!!

The happiest day // colorful Los Angeles wedding
Saying that I love this wedding is an understatement. The whole gang was so loving and laid back that I felt like I was an old friend the whole day. There was tons of sentimental good-ness and happy tears that resulted in me crying – alot.
Taking the metro to the reception space was the couples idea, which I LOVED, but not as much as I loved the Mexican inspired decor at the reception space. Crazy beautiful.
A huge thanks to my totally sweet second shooter, Felicity (thanks girl!)
California Dreamin’ // Venice Beach Engagment session
When I found out my buddies, Mike and Nina got engaged, my first thought was that I just HAD to photograph them. They are both so freakin cool and are always inspiring me with their wild adventures. And when they aren’t traveling, they live in this sweet Venice Beach pad, just a block from the boardwalk! My goal was to keep it real and document this rad couple just being themselves. Their babe, Bijoux, also joined us on our sunset adventure.
