Isabel and Zach’s Monterey wedding in Memory Garden was full of all the prettiest details. The two of them are just the sweetest bride and groom! Memory Garden is SUCH a beautiful outdoor event space and made for the perfect venue for this special day. I loved all the archways on the property. It had […]

Alex and Katie’s Ventana maternity photoshoot was full of natural light and pure excitement for their baby girl who’s on the way! Katie is thirty weeks along in her pregnancy, which I find is such a good time for a maternity session because you get to spotlight your baby bump. We photographed all along the […]

I was SO thrilled photographing Ben and Alex’s surprise engagement in Big Sur! Pfeiffer Beach was our first choice with backup locations like Garrapata and Silomar State Beach in case Pfeiffer is foggy in the afternoon. Ben wanted everything to be perfect and sunny, and Pfeiffer Beach is such a classic pick! It’s really scenic, […]

Matt and Meli’s Bernardus Lodge wedding here in Carmel Valley is one I’ve been SO excited for ever since I photographed their Big Sur engagement session earlier this year! I love getting to witness the individual chapters of my couples’ love story. The proposal, the engagement, the wedding, maternity sessions. I’m here for all of […]

Alissa and Sean are the sweetest couple and I was SO head over heels for them photographing their Wind & Sea Estate Big Sur wedding! They were referred to me by another local photographer who did their engagement session. I haven’t been to the Wind & Sea Estate in a few years so I loved […]

Jill and Ryan’s MPCC Beach House intimate wedding was the first of back-to-back MPCC luxury weddings that I had the honor of shooting as a local Pebble Beach wedding photographer. In fact, both couples from both weddings are friends, isn’t that amazing? (You can see Sarah and Drake’s wedding here 😉 I even photographed Jill […]

Photographed the DREAMIEST San Francisco City Hall elopement and I couldn’t be more honored to have been Lana and Caitlyn’s SF wedding photographer! Everything from Lana’s Toni Maticevski gown to Caitlyn’s BHLDN suit– plus pizza and champagne! Yes, these two lovely ladies ate pizza and drank Moet champagne on the steps of their San Francisco […]

Cole and Nicole’s Carmel by the Sea engagement session was SUCH a great experience to photograph! We shot an hour-and-a-half or so before sunset, and there was just a little bit of wind in the area that day too. It made for these awesome wind-in-your-hair moments with dramatic ocean waves to boot! As a local […]

Sarah and Drake’s MPCC luxury wedding was the second of back-to-back MPCC luxury weddings that I had the honor of shooting on the same weekend! Sarah and Drake are friends of Jill and Ryan, and I got to photograph both their weddings! I loved how tight-knit it all felt for me as their MPCC luxury […]

Zach and Jess hired me for their welcome dinner party the night before their Folktale Winery wedding. It’s such an honor, not to mention a SUPER fun time, getting to spend the weekend with my couples! I got to meet all their friends and family, which was such a highlight for me as a local […]
