You may be asking yourself, "who is this lady?"...well my close friends know me as a constant creative. I have idle hands and my mind is always spinning for the next creative project.
I've always been obsessed with photos since poloroid spit out those instant gratification beauties that we so cherished, circa 1992. At age seven I would force my brother to pose with our stuffed animals and act like a pro (shhhh, don't tell him!). I've been photographing the beautiful people of California and beyond professionally since 2017, though it feels like I've done it my whole life. Wedding photography is my main focus and sunset photography for engagement photos and family photography is also my heart.
I love that my job consists of a gathering of friends and family all dressed up and swooning with emotion, ready to party and I get an invite! In my past life, I coordinated Paso Robles weddings and San Luis Obispo weddings before returning to my first love, photography. It takes a team to pull off the event of your dreams. Not only will I obsess over and document every detail of your event, but I'm a wealth of knowledge when it comes to wedding vendors; just ask!
I want my wedding couples and families to have the photos they deserve, because they'll have them for a lifetime as a family heirloom. I want you to open an album from our session and feel the emotion, excitement and love jump off the page.
I moved to the central coast of California in 2002 and never looked back. I love what California has to offer us; mountains, beaches, hiking, fishing, & swimming.
A few highlights from my perspective:
Taking our jeep out into the middle of the woods and setting up camp is living.
I firmly believe that everything should be done on a handshake.
Never let your ego get in the way of learning something new and never forget your morals.
Never stop laughing. Never take yourself too seriously in life.

How Do I Book?
Get in touch
Ready to book your engagement, wedding photography or family photos?
Email, call, text, Instagram DM me, Facebook message me and we can schedule a chat.
Have a Call
I value my client's time and a quick phone call or video chat is the best way for us to have a short (or long) chat. You can meet me, I can meet you and we can find out if we're a good fit! I would never want to book clients that ended in turmoil for either of us. So, grab a glass of wine or cold beer and let's get to chatting!
Book & get the date secured
It's not common for clients to understand that photographers have limited dates available. I only plan my year for a certain amount of weddings and family photo shoots. So, with that being said, please DO NOT WAIT to book! I cannot stress this enough. Nothing makes me more saddened to connect with you and your amazing love story only to hear that your date is already taken! Noooo! Let's get your spot secured and on my calendar.
As a Paso Robles Wedding Photographer and San Luis Obispo Wedding Photographer I'm in the heart of wine country. San Luis Obispo County is a destination wedding area with plenty to do and see. This provides plenty of entertainment opportunities for your wedding guests as well as engagement photography locations! I love booking my San Luis Obispo engagement photography sessions anywhere in the county. Morro Bay engagement photos are always a blast and is one of my favorite locations for engagement photos and sunset photos in general.
I also love taking maternity photos and have found several local grassy areas that provide dreamy backdrops for Paso Robles maternity photos. My Atascadero maternity photo shoots are super fun to shoot on easy hiking trails. If you're more into the beach, the grassy dunes are great with my Morro Bay beach maternity photos sessions. Beach maternity pictures always hold my heart and have that wow factor that you'll love.
