As a native Texan raised in Utah, and a distinguished NYU TISCH graduate, I have been perfecting my craft for the past decade in Santa Monica, where the sun-kissed beaches of the Pacific Ocean meet the glamorous world of Los Angeles. Regarded as one of the most sought-after wedding photographers in the world, I have artfully intertwined my passion for photojournalism with an editorial flair and insatiable obsession with beautiful light.
My ultimate goal is to gain your trust as a couple so that you can be at ease and savor each moment of your wedding. I specialize in capturing both the candid and emotionally-charged moments of your special day while simultaneously creating timeless, editorial-style portraits that reflect your unique story. I am your personal guide and private historian.
I strive to create wedding photos that are more than just pretty pictures – but evoke genuine emotion and capture the essence of your legacy. Rest assured, I'm also skilled in providing guidance and direction to ensure that you both look and feel your absolute best throughout the day.
