I am a Texas born, Utah-raised, NYU graduate who's been living in Los Angeles for the past 12 years. Listed as one of the "top 100 wedding photographers in the world", I blend my love of photojournalism with a timeless, editorial style, and hopeless obsession with beautiful light.

My primary goal is to gain your trust as a couple so that you feel 100% comfortable and can enjoy your wedding just being yourself. From the start of your big day, I will catch both the wild/hilarious/emotionally candid moments while also capturing the romantic essence of you as a couple. I am constantly being told that I am incredibly enthusiastic and passionate about what I do! I want your photos to be felt, not just seen, and I want the day to feel like your wedding day, not a photo shoot. But please don't worry... I also love guiding my couples when needed to ensure they feel relaxed and always look their best!
