the photographer behind the lens

My photography career started in NYC with a dog blog that soon developed into a pet photography business. From there, I started second shooting for other photographers and realized that weddings were my calling! I shot my first wedding in 2010 at a small venue in Portland, Maine. Since then, I have been shooting weddings all across the Country.

I feel so lucky to get to work with such wonderful people each day! Based in San Diego, I feel incredibly fortunate to have found my dream job. I strive to create real connections with each of my couples so that I can document your special day in the most timeless and authentic way possible.

A lot of my inspiration comes from interior design, textures and light. I consider my work modern, timeless, and classic. I love to focus on the details of your day. I don't just point my camera and shoot. I dig deeper to get those shots and capture those moments that only you can share with each other. A wedding day is more than just pretty details, signature cocktails and fancy tabletops. It's a day that you have curated together to make a promise and share it with your loved ones.
