Ellen and Troy’s Gardener Ranch wedding photography was the dreamiest highlight reel of this beautiful day! It was full of sentimental family heirlooms from mom’s veil to the rings, and a locket that will be on Grandad’s bouquet. I loved photographing all around the property and seeing Ellen and Troy with their friends and family. […]

Morgan and Bill’s family film session in Carmel By The Sea was SUCHA dreamy whirl to capture!

It means the world to me as a Carmel photographer to have been […]

I photographed Christina and James’ engagement session in Pebble Beach and it was so sweet and fun! Christina and James were born and raised in Pacific Beach and even went to the same preschool.

A gal named Judy reached out to me to be her Big Sur family photographer in celebrating her dad’s 80th birthday. They wanted a session with coastline views so I knew Big Sur was going to be the perfect place! The family came over from Oakland for the photos and it was really awesome time […]

Natalia and Vladimir’s engagement photos in Big Sur were SO fun and romantic, full of dreamy blush tones and pretty neutrals, and not one- but TWO beautiful dresses!

Allison and Chris’ Carmel family photoshoot was a BLAST and also doubled as a precursor to their wedding- how cool is that?

I loved getting to spend the day with Andrew and Anthi photographing their Big Sur engagement photoshoot! His mom hired me and we SUCH a fun hour-long chat.
