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 300 weddings in my 19 years of business. I now live in Southern California and have been lucky to call this beautiful state home for 13 years. When I’m not shooting with my clients, I’m a worldwide traveler and yoga girl. At home, I love seeing concerts, dancing ecstatically, cruising the Venice Beach on my bike, hiking Topanga Canyon, skiing at Mammoth Mountain, meditating and spending quality 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!
