Firstly......

who likes writing about themselves on these pages.  I don't know anyone that does.  So instead of writing a lengthy boring bio about who I am, I'll make it short and to the point.  

 

the girl

I'm an easy going type of girl, nature lover, and obsessed with photography.  As a child, I would flip through my Dad's monthly National Geographic magazines and wonder about the world but NEVER thought I'd be a wedding photographer.  The pressure of a wedding, I couldn't understand why anyone would put themselves through that stress.  Little did I realize that the relationships, the story, the connection far exceeded any stress.  I loved to take pictures with a disposable camera growing up, never realizing that it was my calling to be a photographer (sorry if that was a little deep).  

I'm an extrovert and introvert, big time foodie and CONSTANT dreamer.  Love to be outdoors, on any body of water, up a mountain or just on my couch eating a plate full of cheese (yes I said a plate FULL of cheese).

I love hard (cry more when I'm happy than sad), love to get a little messy and love a good meal with good company.  If you like anything on this page, we are going to get along just fine.

 

the photographer

I will explore distant places with you and create unforgettable memories of your love that you will treasure forever (Can you hear the spanish man with a raspy voice saying that?) This is what drives me, what gets my heart pumping.  I love shooting raw moments of real connections.  I don't like to pose.  I want to capture the emotional bond between you and your person.  I thrive for creative details, the lace lining of your dress, the specially chosen flowers in your bouquet, the handwritten letter to your love..... details that tell your story together. 

It's extremely important for me to be completely present when documenting your love, giving you my all, 100% of the time.  I value our connection as much as telling your story.  We are building a friendship, not just checking off a vendor.  And when all is said and done, you will look back on your images in AWW and relive that magical day again and again and again. 

 

This is not work for me.  It's in my bones. 

(ok that was longer than expected) 

 
It doesn’t matter where your going, it’s whose beside you.
