Your Story; Nothing Less

As Soon As You’re Ready
I’m here for every laugh, for every tear, every excited outburst, every precious milestone that makes up the mosaic that is your life. For a couple of hours or an entire day, I just want you to live in the moment, fully present, unapologetically engaged. I can promise you a few things:
We will have so much fun! Personal connection from start to finish in a relaxed environment has always been my hook. The more at ease you are, and the more you’re enjoying yourself, the better the images. So we’re going to laugh (a lot); we’re going to talk about all the stuff that makes your heart flutter; and we’re basically going to be best buds as I play your personal paparazzi. No awkward unnatural poses. Just you being you!
I will cry. If it’s watching the groom’s face as the bride approaches, your first dance, the tear-jerking toasts, watching you both look at each other and kiss when no one else is looking, and especially as I relive your day via editing and come upon that heart-stopping image, I’m going to cry.
You are never just a client. That means that during the process we’ll maybe meet for tacos (if we’re in the same city); that I’ll help plan your looks; that we will pray together if you’re in need; and that whatever sacred space you invite me into, I will document it as if it’s my own.

RAYMOND REDDINGTON IS MY FAVORITE VILLAIN
HOT YOGA IS MY NEW FAV
Born and raised in California, I'm a highly extroverted, 37 yr. old 40's Jazz and worship music lovin', protein shake drinkin’, former active duty U.S. Marine. Jesus Christ is the most important Person in my life and His glory is the chief aim in all that I do. After taking a step of faith by walking away from the corporate sector to be more present in the life of my young ministry family, I began this artistic journey around 3am in a bathroom January 7th, 2014.
I absolutely love that this is what I get to wake up and do every day! Toward that end, you'll find that I pour all of my energy into curating images that best display the intimate spaces and times of your life because these are your moments that speak to your legacy. And to my soul's yearning, I occasionally travel abroad to document the varying landscapes of humanity, to tell the stories that go untold, and to be His light in the darkest of places.
When I'm not holding your hand and praying with you before you say "I Do", peering behind a viewfinder or editing, I'm most likely enjoying my insanely gorgeous husband of 18 years, making memories with our trio, perusing the aisles of Hobby Lobby or Home Goods, by the ocean, or joyfully serving as a missionary. Working out in the gym before sunrise & time in my Bible is how I start each day, I love to read quotes, The Devil Wears Prada & Hidden Figures are two of my all-time fav movies, and the way to my heart is Jamba Juice smoothies and Amazon gift cards.
I believe that dreams are meant to be chased ferociously, that popcorn is a food group, that you shouldn't read this book or this book unless you want your life completely wrecked, that hugs are way better than handshakes, that the 80's & 90's were the best decades to be a kid, and that you haven't lived if you've never tried Baltimore's blue crabs. I also believe that you're never too old to flirt with your spouse (especially in public), or too old to create and go on adventures with your children, and that it's perfectly fine to break out in the most random dance when great music comes on. You better live this life!
That's the gist dearest one. This is what you're working with and I can't wait for you to get it touch because after all, we're going to be besties when it’s all said and done and we’re going create something pretty fantastic right? So let’s get to it!

MISSIONS & HUMANITARIAN PHOTOGRAPHY
commissioned with a camera..
When I picked up a camera in 2014, I knew that it was bigger than weddings and the other lifestyle concepts that I been accustomed to. It was for Him; a tool that that would get me into the darkest of places. It was to document His work in the earth, shine a light on the needs of humanity, to tell the stories that otherwise go untold, and most of all, to tell the greatest story of all mankind. By His grace alone, with indescribable joy and unrelenting zeal to make Him known, I continue to do such work.
I consider it a privilege to do this kind of work . I’m an advocate for humanity, for each story. Each wedding, each lifestyle session, each branding collection, and each humanitarian project point to purpose and legacy that will tell tales of life for generations to come. Thank you for giving me the honor of being the one to tell the tale, through my lens. Please fill out this brief form to get started.
