Meet your Photographers
It all started when we fell in love
I’m a photographer, an art director, an aspiring chef, and I love sinking my feet into the sand at the water’s edge. I’m an Arizona native, now based in Southern California, but I’m chasing the sun wherever I go. I’m innately drawn to warmth, color, a good laugh, and organization. I’m a planner at heart and have been creating art for as long as I can remember. I grew up oil painting, creating jewelry, soap making, selling handmade cards to all of my neighbors, and now photographing moments more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed them to be. Part of my process is to create strong bonds with my clients that ultimately grows into friendship. Creating art gives me confidence that I don't otherwise possess. I decided to start directing my own art because I didn't want to have any limits or guidelines. With an educational background in science, I know the importance of experimentation and truthfully, all of my magic has been made when I've experimented. I invest myself into all of my work and feel extremely honored to have the privilege of capturing so many of life's big moments! Nothing in life is too small or too insignificant to be documented. I've grown with my business and truly, I have my clients to thank for that. I'll make YOU my priority and together we can write your story.
Michael is the mastermind of the back office. He is in charge of designing our website, managing our equipment, and assisting me during shoots; he's really the best pack-mule of all time. He's creative, yet technical and the images that he does take- yes, he shoots too!- are always beautiful. He became interested in film photography before we started dating and introduced it to me while we were in college. He taught me the basics of loading and metering and we continued to learn together. He focuses on pushing our skills and trying new techniques. Michael brings a sense of structure and form into the photography, which balances well with my sense of style and emotion. He's quiet at first but his subtle sarcasm and jokes always stir up some good laughter. Michael has a calmness to him that he's able to rub off onto others, he has good energy. Michael is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Public Health at University of California, Irvine but manages his time well and is able to help with our business and accompany me to all of our events.
