As an artist and storyteller myself, connecting with my clients goes far beyond business—sitting on the edge of my seat as you retell your love story, seeing your eyes light up when a pose worked out perfectly (and laughing when it doesn’t), watching their face slowly change as you walk down the aisle…those are the moments that fuel me long after our contract ends, and I would be honored to capture your story together. 

my process

artful & honest

When the camera gets tucked away, you can find me at a local coffee shop dreaming up my next project, walking our two dogs through the foggy Pacific Northwest with my husband Herman, or cruising around town on our vespas. I hoard candles, would adopt every dog at the shelter if Herman would let me, and believe everyone can and should dance as much as possible!



The old saying goes, "a picture is worth 1000 words" and I believe it to be true.

I like to think of every gallery as a love letter from me to you. Your gallery will be full of photos that not only capture the details of your day, but also serve as a tangible reminder of your love for one another, your friends and your families.

 As you continue to grow and life inevitably changes, they transform into treasured heirlooms. I take my role as a documentarian very seriously, knowing first hand how our photos become even more precious as time goes on. 

Every gallery is a love letter.

My college sweetheart, Herman, and I were married in July of 2016. Towards the end of the reception, it started POURING RAIN! Instead of moving the party indoors, we all danced in the rain. It was one of the most magical moments of our lives and the best part of our wedding day.

Maybe it's the thrill with the wind in my hair or maybe it’s because of how much I adored the Lizzie McGuire Movie…either way, this is what dreams are made of.

More about me...

I’m always down for a road trip, whether it’s a spontaneous adventure with friends or if I’m traveling for an elopement. Fair warning - I sing at the top of my lungs in the car!

We are renovating our historic craftsman home and bringing it back to its 1924 charm! There are few things we love more than cozy evenings, candle-lit rooms, and snuggling our dogs (yes, we let them on the couch!).

More about me...

I’m a deep feeler, hopeless romantic, and great listener. I’m curious about people and their stories. My favorite walks are spent dreaming up big creative ideas. 

Long walks + deep conversations
