Born and raised in the Bay Area, it all started 12 years ago when my dad gave me my first camera. In high school I began shooting senior portraits and for the high school newspaper, and as my hobby grew into my passion, I've always aimed to show the unique character of every client I work with because I believe that everyone has a story worth being told.
I'm a lover of natural light in outdoor locations since they provide, in my opinion, unlimited opportunities for captivating, yet authentic photos. In terms of style, my photos are meant to capture life as I see it: genuine, joyful, and vibrant. In terms of being your photographer, I will give you creative vision, attention to detail, and a relaxed environment...all I ask in return is for you to be yourself!
Right now, I specialize in weddings, and I value every moment with my clients. I want to get to know you so that I can capture striking photos that show your true story. In the meantime, feel free to take a look at my past experience and loves, and see if we have anything in common! If it sounds like we are a good match, I would love to get to know you over coffee (or tea!) and hear all about the special day you have planned!

Photography has been my first love, and it will always stay as my number one passion! The people I meet through it is what motivates me in life and keeps me always wanting to do more! However when I’m not shooting, I work a 9-5 developing beautiful packaging in the beauty industry, another creative outlet that’s completely unrelated to photography!
Along with my 9-5, I love traveling, and well..I’m still shooting! Except this time, around the world in new places that inspire me to push my photography forward. With my love of adventure and new places, I’m always open to travel if there’s a location you want to shoot. Just say the word and we can talk destinations!
