Rebecca and Ryan’s private ranch wedding in Monterey was definitely one for the books! These two actually booked me for their wedding last year, and as one might guess, COVID threw a monkey wrench into their plans.

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 […]

I’m so in love with Erin and Marc’s intimate, wanderlust wedding in Oakland!

On July 11th, I teamed up with Kaitlin Ford and Kim England- the lovely ladies behind Pocketful of Plans and Fleurs du Soleil respectively- and we held fifteen-minute couples portrait shoots for ten couples affected by COVID!
