I’ve always been the girl with the camera. In high school, my idea of a good time was planning photoshoots with my friends and editing our high school yearbook. But when I got to college, I felt like I needed to get a practical degree, so I chose the most creative business major I could find – marketing.
Then I met Thomas.
My photo hobby became something more because he recognized my passion and encouraged me to make it a reality. He’s been my second shooter since the very first wedding. In 2016, we tied the knot in our home state of Florida and moved out to California two years later when Thomas landed his dream job in finance.
After shooting more than 100 weddings, I still jump out of bed every morning excited to respond to inquiries, edit photos, and draft wedding day timelines. There are so many things I love about capturing the details of your special day, but most of all, I love getting to know the two of you.
I'm a jeans and a t-shirt kind of girl, but my aspirational wardrobe on Pinterest is filled with Anthropologie. I like to think I'm a plant lady, but let's be real, they're all struggling a bit. I was never a big TV person until one of my brides shared her streaming account. After that, I managed to watch 14 seasons of Grey's in less than a year. Current binge-worthy show? Younger! My perfect weekend includes conquering an escape room (or a cooperative board game, like Pandemic), hiking along a lake with the pups, getting lost in a Jodi Picoult book, and probably crossing an item or two off my to do list. I love getting things done (one of my traits as an enneagram 3)!
During the week, I work in finance, which allows me to express my nerdy side. Emily likes to say I know a little about a lot of things. Ask me about stocks, lightweight camping gear, or ways to maximize the return on credit card points – I love learning and am always researching something. Living in California has been a dream of mine since 2014 and I’m thrilled to now call the Bay Area home. I drag Emily out hiking as often as possible; we hiked Machu Picchu on our honeymoon and the Kalalau Trail on a recent trip to Hawaii. You can also find me getting lost in Costco trying samples, tossing the frisbee with the pups, and snowboarding in the winter.

Traveling to new places has been a huge bonus for us, too. The map above our bed has scattered pins for every place we’ve been along this journey, and we’re always looking to put the next one up. We’ll work with couples as much as we can to make that happen.
We have a goal to shoot an engagement session or wedding in every state in the US. It sounds crazy, but we love a little adventure!
