I create images you’ll fall in love with again and again. For me, being present at your event is a genuine honor. And it means just that: being present, being aware, being observant and experiencing the fullness of each moments' love, happiness and joy.

My journey...

As a mother of our four children and married to a U.S. Marine, my life has taken me through years of travel to all parts of the world, all the while connecting with a multitude of beautiful people and experiences I could have never once imagined.

I feel fortunate to have experienced some of the most beautiful defining moments that life can offer. I'm so thankful for every thrilling moment that has brought me to the fullness of life I enjoy every day.

I specialize in capturing your most exciting moments in life; from the newly engaged couple, to the fun family reunion and every amazing and special chapter in-between.


I believe in the importance of leaving a legacy for the ones you love. I love documenting love stories and celebrating families or creating the best corporate profile you've ever had. I love finding out what makes each of us unique. On the surface, I photograph people, but what I'm really doing is seeking your joy and your connections that make life memorable, through photographs.




No two couples are ever the same. Your connection, your character and the essence of what makes you-you, inspires me on a daily basis. It’s my role to capture the love of your story, allowing you to relive those incredible moments over, again and again.


My couples tend to be a lot like me – very much adventurous. They tend to be chilled out couples who are planning their wedding for sentiment value, allowing me to tell their story through honest, clean and timeless photographs that aren't just the current trends.


If you take in the world with the glass half full and have a good sense of humor, we’ll definitely have fun together and I can't wait to meet you.


Take a look around, I’d love to meet with you and get to know you better.

I live for the simple things in life: experiences, love, and adventure. My approach is relaxed, easy going, and fun, ensuring that you are comfortable and more importantly, yourself, as you let me take care of the rest.


My photography style is a mix of storytelling, attention to detail, while capturing real, raw emotion and natural moments.
