Zach, Makenna and I drove around Long Beach, California for this winter time beach city engagement session. Stopping at Colorado Lagoon, and walking around their downtown neighborhood.Read More
Such a perfect day to shoot Cassie and Austin’s engagement session. You can usually bet on Southern California sun especially in the desert, but surprisingly we were met with overcast skies. We started at the botanical gardens (be sure to check their hours!) and ended with a little session in the desert terrain.Read More
Jessica and Tyler’s wedding was held in December of 2018 in one of my favorite cities, Palm Springs. The O’Donnell House is set high on a hill overlooking parts of the city, can’t beat the view. And hey, wedding photographers, if you’re out early enough you may even have time to get a scoop of ice cream at local The Ice Cream Shoppe.Read More

Mary + Brian are celebrating 9 years of marriage! Mary and I put our heads together and thought a "re-wed" shoot would be fun! We took the hemline up a bit but threw on a lacy white dress to remember that day they said "I do" nine years agoRead More
I love it when the lights turn low,
and there’s that summer glow.
There’s more light to pack life in before the day turns dark, there’s extra time to soak
in your people and the places this summer has taken you.
Jessica and Tyler’s mountain engagement session ∘ The drive up was filled with clinging, dense fog and wondering if we’d even be able to shoot. It made everything extra bewildering and mysterious. Pressing onward the valley floor brought warmth, sun and singing songbird’s.Read More

Desert and desserts were the theme of this maternity road trip session. As Taylor and I planned her maternity session, we got a little ambitious. I proposed a trip to the sand dunes. Taylor grew up going to the dunes, and I had never been. So we thought, "let's go for it".Read More
Brooke and Austin's wedding day was such a fun way to end the 2017 wedding season. Brooke's gorgeous color palette couldn't have matched the Living Desert or the evening sky more perfectly. The gorgeous soft pinks, peach, deep pinks and accentuated black bridesmaid's dresses, was all just too good. With the beautiful ostrich hair fur coats fitting very nicely with the wildlife all around from the giraffes and addax on green, rolling hills, to vultures, zebras, and camels...one in particular whose name just happened to be Diamond.Read More
You know those cards couples have you fill out at their wedding? "GIVE US YOUR BEST DATE IDEA AND WE'LL DO IT!" Now even though, I'm a photographer I get more creative than just putting "PLAN A PHOTOSHOOT TOGETHER!" if you're a couple that thoroughly enjoys adventuring together, dream up a place you haven't been before and see if a photographer might not join along.Read More
Madelyn and Michael decided to spend one of their Sunday afternoons with me to capture where they're at, physically (Brooklyn, NY) and together (as a couple) for their 2 year wedding anniversary.Read More
