In a world inundated with perfectly curated feeds and filtered lives, we crave something real. We yearn for those rare moments of vulnerability, connections that transcend the superficial and that's what I strive to document in every photograph.

When you look back on your photos I want you to be reminded of all the emotions you were feeling. I want to capture the breeze blowing through the trees, the goosebumps on your skin, the sand in between your toes, and the crinkles at the corners of your eyes because you just couldn't stop smiling. 
I want those images to remind you that beneath the polished exteriors, we are all beautifully imperfect, our lives a jumble of unscripted moments.

As much as I love capturing emotion, I also believe it's equally important to focus on the technical aspects behind creating beautiful imagery, like working with light and how to capture not just my subject but also showcase the landscape around them.

While shooting I draw inspiration from the colors and textures around me and they play a huge role informing my images. 

Over the past 5 years, I've documented countless stories... let me tell yours

Inspired By

About 5 years ago, I left my corporate career to pursue my love of photography and it was the best decision I ever made! 

Travel and exploring has always been a huge part of my life and being able to share those experiences with others through photography is what lead me here. I’ve called the northwest home since I was little, although my love for traveling has taken me all over the world. That passion has given me the opportunity to share some of my favorite places both at home and around the globe with my couples.

Documenting life's big moments lights me up! 

Let's do this!
