A big part of my wedding planning included growing out my hair! When I first met Michael, I had just cut my hair pretty short. Growing my hair out long enough for my dream updo, while also maintaining my hair’s health was really important to me.
A stolen moment. The kind that almost feels too sacred to capture. I like to step back, to observe. Us knowing each other first gives me the ability to better anticipate these moments, to wait, and allows you to be comfortable with me waiting in the distance with the camera to my face.
Today, Michael and I are celebrating 4 years of marriage. We got married in Arizona on a hot, 112 degrees to be exact, day! It was magical, beautiful, and better than I ever dreamed. We’ve been so lucky to celebrate not only our honeymoon, but every anniversary since, in Disneyland! We do go often but […]
Darren and Joanne just celebrated their first year of marriage! They met on match.com and really were such a perfect match. We photographed their engagement session in Downtown San Francisco, which is also where they live and met. They were married last August at the Four Seasons in Palo Alto. This was a special […]
I’ve received a few emails and direct messages on Instagram asking about what to wear for a family session or just beautiful dresses for summer. So I thought I would round up a few- 18 to be exact- of my favorites! I also wanted to include a few criteria I look for in choosing dresses to be photographed!

I’ve been dipping my foot into the world of art direction and fashion photography over the last year. It’s something I’m really excited to do more of and have real dreams of being in that space. My first love will always be weddings, but I have seen such a blend of both fashion and weddings over the past couple years and hope to see even more of the two worlds coming together. Brides that have confidence in their style and a love for fashion always end up picking the most beautiful details that are totally unique to them. Which is honestly one of the coolest parts to see! I love how the personalities of couples really shines on their wedding day from beginning to end. I hope high fashion keeps inspiring brides everywhere and that they can feel confident with their wedding, even if it doesn’t look like ones they’ve pinned, but feels personal to her.
A little weekend recap. A small snapshot of our lives this week! Guests at a wedding, a girls night with my best girls that included shopping and Sees, food budgeting and meal planning, motherhood sessions, and reflecting on this crazy beautiful career we have.
Google photos just notified me that two years ago, today, Michael and I were in New York. I had just run a half marathon, untrained, after walking 10 miles the day before. I pushed myself because I thought it would be a great way to see Central Park. I quickly learned that normal people just walk around it. And I, surprisingly, don’t have any negative feelings toward Central Park. In fact, I think I love it more. It’s like all of the energy and strength I needed was right there in that park and it carried me along. I’ve taken some of my favorite images in this park. I’ve had the best time vacationing solo in this park and also the best time with Michael.
If you’re thinking about non-traditional bridal wear, whether it be jumpsuits or a colored gown, I can’t wait to capture you in it! So excited to be photographing beautiful weddings this year and seeing all of the beautiful details that my couples choose.
