Sunsets are my favorite. I always try to plan your day so that your gone as little as possible but we get the epic sunset photos of your dreams. timing this just right is so important.

Everything will be done with much love, care and respect as I can give- my goal is to make your photography fun and easy for you and your guests.

 Candid moments are my speciality- your family and friends will be having such a blast while you are in a whirlwind of excitement- it's my job to capture everything for you.

california destination wedding photographer

Are you looking for a destination wedding photographer? I'd love to hear about your needs- traveling is my favorite and I am always up for an adventure.

I specialize in garden, vineyard, and barn weddings. Most of my engagements take place at the beach. I am comfortable with any type of venue big or small, elegant or rustic.

I like to split my time between the San Luis Obispo, the coast and Santa Barbara. It's always wonderful to head south to the towns of Thousand Oaks, Carpinteria, Montecito, San Ynez, and Santa Barbara for a change of vibe. I adore the whitewashed adobe of the Missions, the crawling bouganvilla, and the warm golden light on the white sandy
Santa Barbara beach venues. 



Frequently asked questions

YES! ABOUT HALF OF MY WEDDINGS ARE IN SANTA BARBARA AND THOUSAND OAKS, WITH ANOTHER THIRD IN NAPA AND MONTEREY. I DO NOT CHARGE TRAVEL FEES FOR CALIFORNIA WEDDINGS- FOR DESTINATIONS WORLDWIDE I CHARGE MY REGULAR RATE PLUS 25% TO COVER TRAVEL EXPENSES.

I offer documentary style wedding videography that is focused on capturing the candid moments of your day. My style is very real and authentic. by bundling your videography with your photography you can save a lot of money- ask me about my packages.

How early should we book you?

I only take a limited number of weddings per year so i can give my couples my undivided attention. my wedding dates can be booked as far as 2 years in advance, so be sure and reach out as soon as you have your wedding venue secured. 

you should book your wedding photographer as early as possible as the best photographer book out far in advance.

we can't leave anything to chance, especially your wedding day.

HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE?

Roughly between 700 – 1000 edited images for an 8 hr wedding. Sometimes even more than that. 

Every wedding is different so it's impossible to know exactly how many we will take, but rest assured you're going to have more than enough pictures to make you incredibly happy!

DO YOU OFFER CUSToM PACKAGES?

WHILE I’VE CREATED MY photo PACKAGES BASED ON WHAT HAS WORKED FOR HUNDREDS OF MY COUPLES IN THE PAST, I UNDERSTAND THAT EVERY WEDDING IS UNIQUE AND SOME MAY REQUIRE SOMETHING DIFFERENT. IF THE PACKAGES DON'T QUITE FIT, LET'S CHAT AND I WILL SEE WHAT WE CAN DO TO FIND THE BEST FIT FOR YOU.

CAN WE MEET UP BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?

I'd love to get to know you better before the day. Face to face or zoom is totally cool. Let's do a walkthrough of your venue or meet for a glass of wine, I would love to spend time with you and hear all about your wedding day. or you can do an engagement or boudoir session with me!

How will we receive our images?

all weddings + engagement sessions are delivered through an online gallery WHERE YOU CAN SHARE AND DOWNLOAD YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS.
MY COUPLES GET A HUGE GALLERY OF 200-300 FAVORITES THE SAME WEEK OF THEIR WEDDING- WAY MORE THAN MOST PHOTOGRAPHERS DELIVER.

BEING A wedding PHOTOGRAPHER WITH A FAST TURNAROUND IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO ME. I then take around 8 weeks to perfect the rest. 

will you help direct us?

Guiding, directing, and posing couples is my strong point and something I am very passionate about. After years of photographing mainly couples, I've learned several different tricks to get those fun, candid images of couples being themselves and just having fun. I'll give you a lot of prompts and direction to achieve these candid and fun images WHERE YOU ALSO LOOK YOUR BEST.

I'm ready to book- now what?

Reach out to me through my contact form or Via text, and i will get right back to you so we can discuss your needs and find a PHOTOGRAPHY package that is perfect for you.

"It’s the unexpected candid moments that happen to be the most beautiful ones remembered."
