I love photographing weddings! I don't take lightly the privilege it is of being the photographer you choose to document such a huge moment...the day you say, "I do" and become one. My approach is a mix of traditional and photojournalistic. I understand the importance of posed shots, but truly love just capturing moments organically, as they happen. The emotion is real and more authentic and I feel it translates to amazing images you will cherish for years to come. Whether you are having a huge party or a simple elopement, each has their own beauty. I love capturing them all!

I am located in the heart of the Sonoma Wine Country, in Healdsburg, CA... but love the chance to visit new places and love to travel!

Hi! Thank you so much for checking out my website! I have loved photography for as long as I can remember.  Although I loved taking pictures, it only went as far as taking photos for friends and the kids I nannied for. I never really believed that I could make it as a "real" photographer. I went to college l and got my phlebotomy license (yep, I also know how to draw blood!) and loved my job!

Five years ago, I met the love of my life. Once we got engaged, I started looking for the most important aspect of the wedding for me : a photographer! After having her photograph our engagements, wedding, and family photos, I realized how much I missed being behind the camera. With my husband cheering me on, I blew the dust of my old Canon Rebel, and the rest is history! Hours and hours of classes and practice later, I am so blessed to call myself a photographer!

When I am not behind my camera, I am having fun with my family, watching Grey's Anatomy, eating Mexican food, and taking in a Giants game. I couldn't survive without ice cream and a hot bath at the end of a long night! Oh, and I think I can quote pretty much every episode of Friends!
