A little about me...

When it comes to my art, emotions are my inspiration. And when I capture a wedding in pictures, I’m inspired by every single moment. The drama and power of photography has captivated me all my life. From the first moment I explored Portland’s monthly gallery exhibits to the first time I developed prints myself, I knew my future was carving its space: I would be a professional photographer.


In 2007, I began shooting weddings. The excitement and energy of each event is intoxicating—and when I know I’ve captured the emotion of the moment, there’s no better feeling in the world. To get to that point, I start my journey with the bride and groom before I even pick up the camera. I’m inquisitive by nature, and understanding the details, design and style of a couple’s wedding can transform the tone of my images from beautiful to breathtaking. 


I shoot a full range of photos, but “portraits” hold a special place in my heart. Portraits are intensely personal and can be incredibly rewarding for a photographer. When a mother looks at a portrait of her daughter and says “oh, that’s so her” with the slightest smile on her face, I know I’ve given them something special. When I shoot portraits of family and guests, I hope that they’ll feel amazing when they see themselves in print. To deliver such emotion is a gift for me, and if I’m doing my job right, it’s a gift to my clients, as well. 


What I want for my clients is to bring every moment to life, to shape the story of their special day through my lens. I hope I can do exactly that for you.

Hopkins Family – San Diego Family Photography

I’ve known the Hopkins family for a few years now and every time I see them, I have a huge smile to my face the whole time. Cristin and Jake are not only ruling the wedding rental business here in San Diego, they are doing an amazing job with these four adorable kids. I love how their family photos turned out, but unfortunately this post is bittersweet. Titan, their incredibly huge and friendly dog, passed away today. Hopkins fam – I’m sorry for your loss, I know Titan was an important part of your family :(

Elissa & Brad’s Wedding Photos – Oregon State University – Corvallis, OR

Elissa and Brad’s wedding holds a special place in my heart. One reason is that I’ve known Elissa for over ten years, another reason is that their wedding was held at one of my favorite places on earth – Oregon State University. I feel like I literally grew up on the campus and it’s just an incredible place. Elissa is an amazing designer so I was thrilled to see and photograph all of the super creative details. I hope you enjoy the photos!
