I truly believe that hiring a photographer should be like hiring a friend (if hiring friends were a thing). It's important for you to jive with the person responsible for documenting your life! You need someone who is going to dance with you during your reception, constantly tell you how flawless you look (because you do look damn good!), but also know when you to be a fly on the wall during the quiet, intimate moments. Vibes are everything y'all, and I can read them! 




So here's a little about me-

Born and raised in Arizona, this cactus obsessed, fair-skinned gal left the sun and moved to Seattle in 2014. I had just graduated with a Photography degree from Northern Arizona University, and I always knew I wanted to move to the PNW. I love being surrounded by the water, and I love the cloudy, rainy weather that Seattle brings (don't call me crazy!). If I could wear a big, comfy cardigan everyday for the rest of my life, I would be happy. 

I always knew I wanted to be a photographer (I know, I know, everyone says that). In college, I thought I would go off and be a photojournalist for a hip travel magazine. I liked the idea of getting paid to travel, and telling stories about wondrous places and cultures far away and unknown. I wanted to photograph how people around the world connect with one another. I have always found it fascinating how every culture has a different way of doing things, but at the end of the day, we are all the same. We love family, we love our communities, and we crave connection with one another.

 But I realized being away from home all the time would really bum me out. I would miss my friends, need my family, and maybe not have time to ever build my own. 





I could photograph these connections right here at home. For the longest time I thought that if I was a wedding photographer that would mean I would have to photograph couples popping out behind a tree with a corny grin on their face. I thought if I was a family photographer I would have to recreate the poses I see from mall portrait studios (you know the ones). I'm cringing just thinking about it. But I was so, so wrong

I love photographing weddings and families because I get to photograph connections. The connections you have between you and your significant other, you and your mother, even you and your best friends - these are the wondrous moments I'm after. I'm also after the moments of you bustin' a move on the dance floor, cheersing with your friends, and snuggling with your significant other.

I want to create photographs that are nostalgic and sentimental, but also fun. And I realize I don't need to go far to find them; wondrous moments happen in everyday life, all the time. 

Cheers friends!

Then I had my 'aha' moment.

Holla at me

The other day someone told me liking pizza wasn't a personality trait, and I got deeply offended

When I'm not behind the camera, I love traveling, big dogs (the bigger the better!), happy hours with cheese boards, and cozy nights in, binge watching my latest tv obsession. Currently it's 90 Day Fiancé.  





Some of my favorite travel memories have been:

-eating the best cheese ever in Portugal
-biking around Caye Caulker in Belize
-visiting a tiny village's Sangoma in South Africa
-swimming in a hot spring in Iceland
-eating too many tapas in Barcelona

I'm always looking forward to ticking more countries and experiences off my bucket list. I have been lucky to photograph weddings in Mexico, Germany and The Netherlands, and there are so many more beautiful places in the world that I hope to photograph a wedding at. Anyone looking to get married on a yacht in Rhode Island, under a waterfall in Iceland, in a thousand year old church in Italy or in the lush rainforest of Indonesia? If so, I'm your gal! My bags are already packed.
