"Things aren't all so tangible and sayable as people would usually have us believe; most experiences are unsayable." - Rainer Maria Rilke
ABOUT ME / PHILOSOPHY:
Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, toting around a neon 35mm point and shoot camera, constant exploration was my default setting. Inevitably, I moved out of state to pursue visual art and design and the world that inspires it. My curiosity was spurred by new urban environments, but my insatiable pull into the wild drew me back to my roots and my camera, and I discovered that an old hobby was my true place all along.
Now, after eight years as a professional wedding and lifestyle photographer, I find myself driven by deep human connection and the exquisiteness of nature. I have shot over 100s of weddings, collaborated with conscientious small businesses, artists, makers, musicians, travel companies, and non-profit organizations to tell their stories in meaningful ways. I have been able to give back to my community and the charities I believe in by donating monetarily, with my art, and with my time.
In all of this experience I believe it is the everyday narratives and the relationships within them make the most compelling art, holding intricacies that words can’t touch. Capturing the candid and in-between and making them last beyond the moment has remained my truest passion.
Your story, with all of its nuance, deserves to be documented. To be passed down from generation to generation; to become legacy. I am here to give you uncontrived photographs, to document real emotion and a sense of place. To help you remember long after the day is past.
I am happy to meet you in the middle of the woods or in your own home. Documenting the nature of people and story is what makes my job a dream. Open up your story to me, invite me in, and I will be sure to capture it. Mindfully, with a touch of wabi-sabi. And love, always, love.
Sound good? Contact me to connect and set up a consult. I cannot wait!
I am based in Northern California but will happily travel to wherever you are celebrating. No destination is out of the question. Elopement & Wedding collections range from $1900 - $4700. My intent is to capture the story and feel of the day. This looks different based on what kind of wedding you are planning, so let's talk details and select an appropriate collection that allows time for that. Portrait sessions range from $500 - $800. My aim here is to document you in your element, so this usually involves doing something laid back and authentic, such as going somewhere you typically hang out or getting comfy at your home.
