I seek beauty.
I live for the quiet moments that often go unnoticed.
I believe in the power of stories and the wonder of love.
I fell in love with photography at an early age, enticed by the camera’s ability to document life and to tell stories through images. Now, this passion of mine has become my life’s work. A bride’s laugh, a father’s embrace of his daughter, a single tear rolling down a groom’s cheek– I am drawn to the simple, the sweet, the understated. I fuse a photojournalistic approach with a fine art sensibility. I have a special place in my heart for unique couples, multicultural celebrations, and everyday adventures.
My background is in documentary work, for which I have received several awards. My photography is also regularly featured in wedding publications such as Style Me Pretty, Elizabeth Anne Designs, DIY Bride, La Belle Bride, Wedding Nouveau, 7×7, The Wedding Yentas, and more. I am based in San Francisco, but I have traveled all around the country for weddings, from Arizona to Connecticut to Kentucky (amongst many others). I like to daydream about where I might go next… Hawaii, Australia, or somewhere in Europe, perhaps?
