Zsigmond and Ashley’s Santa Barbara engagement session reminded me of my favorite thing about being a destination photographer. I love getting to meet my couples where they’re at and photographing in places outside of my local area! Film photography engagement sessions especially are such a delight for me. Being a Santa Barbara engagement session photographer […]

To one of my best friends of nearly four years: Shannon, thank you for the honor of choosing me to photograph your and Tom’s dreamy sunset Big Sur engagement portraits! I loved every minute of this amazing day and I’m so grateful I got to share it with you two! Maybe it’s a little counter-intuitive […]

I was so thrilled to have met and photographed Sara and Austin’s Big Sur sunset engagement shoot yesterday! I can’t stress the importance of the relationship between photographer and couples enough but when there isn’t much opportunity to meet before the big shoot, making friends along the way is equally fun. The three of us […]

Photographing Gabby and Tucker’s lovely engagement session right here in beautiful Big Sur, California was my absolute delight! Not did I get to capture this special day, but I also have the honor of shooting their wedding next year too! These two are so darling and were a joy to spend the day with. Keep […]

Steve and Anh’s surprise proposal on the coastline had an awesome California staple in it, that is, In-N-Out! Photographing this joyous occasion was such a delight for me as a local Carmel by the Sea proposal photographer. These newly engaged lovers currently live in Chicago and love going on once-in-a-lifetime adventures. They headed west for […]

My time with Sarah and Drake for their beautiful and classic Pebble Beach engagement was a delight to photograph! Firstly, I was over the moon to get to work with them after a previous bride, Morgan, (Sarah’s best friend!) recommended them to me. Secondly, these serendipitous connections to my couples really fill my heart- Sarah […]

Morgan and Bill’s Carmel Beach engagement make them the PERFECT Monterey couple when it comes to their maritime photos! Everything from their thematic blues (which really is their signature color!) to their adorable Frenchie, Olive, made their engagement session a delight to photograph! Best Friends’ Sweet Serendipity What really added to the sentimental factor I […]

Kaela and Chase are Texas sweethearts who came out to California’s beautiful Pebble Beach for their engagement session. It was such a joy to be their local Monterey photographer and capture their love story on the coast of Pebble Beach as well as in Del Monte Forest! Meet Kaela & Chase “Chase doesn’t know this […]

Life’s a beach with the age-old friends to lovers to soulmates. Makes my inner romantic sing every time! I just knew Peter and Nyssa were going to be an absolute joy to photograph for their romantic Big Sur California engagement. That beautiful California coastline and their story? Perfection! I met Peter and Nyssa through one of my […]

Amber and Kyle’s sunset Carmel, California engagement session moved me and filled me with so much sentimentality! I was honored to photograph this service member couple. Amber is a nurse and Kyle is in the military and I admire all that they do for others. Since Kyle is in the military, both of them experience […]
