I shoot with my heart, because I love LOVE. I love joy. I love smiles. I love laughter. I love to capture and document love. I love what makes you YOU. I want to get to know you and your story, and I want to tell your story through captured moments. I love allowing you to cherish precious and meaningful photographs through generations.
I am passionate about each and every wedding, portrait, and lifestyle session I photograph. They’re all unique because YOU are unique. I want to document and show you the authentic beauty that you behold, the way I see it.
The best way to do this is for you to pretend like I’m not there. Keep your main focus OFF of the camera. I want to bring out what comes naturally to you and your loved ones. I want you to do an activity that you would normally do, or go to a place that is meaningful to you. You’ll notice how I’m always seeking after beautiful, natural light. You’ll be asked to follow me and you’ll receive some direction in posing. For some photos, I’ll ask you/everyone to smile at the camera, but I don’t like to direct your every move. I want you to do what feels comfortable. I want you to trust me when I ask you to do something uncomfortable. I remind my clients to be genuine. I ask them to trust me.
Though I photograph a variety of different sessions, couples and weddings are my jam. They’re my number one passion when it comes to photography. Leading up to and on your wedding day, I get really super excited with you and I feel the same butterflies that you feel. I laugh with you, I cry with you. I jump for joy with you and I go the extra mile to make sure you’re comfortable and relaxed. You don’t see it, but I will sometimes run from spot A to B if it means I can get a better shot. (I don’t even like cardio, but I’ll do it for you.) I will also sink into the quiet moments with you and create a space where you can enjoy the precious moments you’ve always dreamed of with the one you love. I would LOVE to celebrate your love along side of you!
* I am based in Southern California, but I am willing to travel across the world to meet you and photograph you. Don’t let distance keep us a part!
