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.
Arriving extra early I'll make myself known to everyone so you're 100% comfortable with me. I'm more like an old friend on the day. I love getting ready details and gorgeous bridal portraits.
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.
The hug your mom gives you after putting on your veil. The way his face looks when he sees you walking down the aisle. The way the two of you can't keep your eyes off each other. Your guests laughing and crying happy tears. Those are the moments I am there to capture.
As a Central Coast wedding photographer with so much experience under my belt, I've really come to value the unexpected, intimate moments that take place on a wedding day. I've learned how getting to know my couple's and planning and organization helps the day unfold effortlessly.
The couple's you see in my portfolio are all real couple's at real San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara weddings. They were just like you- excited about their day, nervous about being in the spotlight, not sure how to pose for photos. And as the day came to an end, they were exhilarated and beyond happy at how fun and amazing their day was, including the photography.
This day is about more than the flowers and the shoes you choose. It's about coming together and celebrating with the ones you love the most. It's my goal to help make it as fun, relaxed, and beautiful as possible while making photography a seamless part of the fun.
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 bougainvillea, and the
warm golden light on the white sandy Santa Barbara beach venues.
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.
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.

Absolutely YES! I don't leave home without $20 million worth of insurance. Everything I do for you is clearly in writing to make sure you know exactly what you are getting.
we can't leave anything to chance, especially your wedding day.
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!
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.
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!
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.
