Behind the camera I am a photo-ninja, a perfectionist and a careful, unobtrusive observer with the ability to make a pose feel natural or anticipate just the right moments that create organic, spontaneous images that tell your story.
I capture the big and small moments of life. I’m excellent at giving direction or letting silence do the talking. I’m a quick thinker, a creative problem-solver and can calm people in stressful situations. Regardless of how large or simple your event, I take pride in having been told by clients that even when feeling overwhelmed by the moment… my passion for life and constant smile, make people feel welcome and relaxed. I can find the authentic you and beauty from within.
My style is modern yet timeless. I understand the dance of color and light, happiness and tenderness. I know the beauty to true raw emotion.
I love being able to capture milestones and moments that make up people’s lives. My images let the unique personality and essence of each person I photograph shine.
I was born and raised in Seattle and earned my BFA in Photography from the University of Washington in 2004. I have shot over 200 weddings in my 15 years of business. I now live in Venice Beach and have been lucky to call California home for almost nine years. When I’m not shooting with my clients I’m a worldwide traveler and yoga girl. At home I love seeing concerts, going to festivals, dancing ecstatically, cruising the beach on my bike, skiing, and spending time with family and friends.
So this is me… and I would love to meet you. It would be an honor to work with you on photographing your special moment!
