my approach to photography

i make you the most important part of the experience

modern yet timeless images

my ability to find the beautiful light

attention to detail








You've dreamed about your wedding for as long as you can remember...the white dress, the guests, the cake, the car, the whole darn thing (thank you, Shania Twain).  There is so much magic in the beautiful experience of marriage.  I could write books about why I love love and how photographing weddings is my passion, but I'll sum it up this way:






I will take good care of you!  I love people and connecting with my clients is so important to me. 
I will listen to your plans, read your style, give direction, be mindful of any concerns you have, make you feel
comfortable and confident, and work hard to exceed your expectations.  I am by your side through the whole experience and am invested in making sure your wedding day is everything that it should be and that your photographs are better than you hoped they would be.





Having been a full time photographer for over 12 years, I have seen styles come and go.  I want your
wedding images to stand the test of time.  Let's face it, classic is never regrettable.  I also value both well-posed and candid, photojournalistic images and your wedding gallery will include both.






No matter the time of day or location, I will work hard to find or create the best lighting conditions to create beautiful images.  I especially love golden sunlight and including that in my images has become a signature style element.





I have an eye for detail, so if there is something out of place, I usually catch it.  I also have a "nicely bossy" ability to make things happen for you, including timeline assistance and organization.


You'll figure out quick that I am much more comfortable being behind the camera, than in front of it!   

Creativity runs in my blood.  As a daughter of a fine art painter, I inherited a natural sense of design, space, color and light.  More importantly...as a woman, a mom, wife, a daughter, a friend and just all around regular gal, I am passionate about people, all of life's journeys, this beautiful world we get to live in, and all of the good around us.  I love capturing what I see and feel and connecting with each of the clients I am blessed to serve. 

 In my spare time (what is that?!)...I am obsessed with my family and our two dogs, four chickens (yeah, what were we thinking?!), cooking or finding good food, travel and dreaming of the next adventure, home decor and organization, trips to Target, curbing my Anthropologie obsession, gardening and plants (lots of plants!). I am not a super moderate person by nature and I love to laugh a lot (and probably too loudly) and make friends with everyone I meet.  I am a right and left brained person (rare), but I can't wink or whistle (what the heck?!). I like to keep things real. I'm also a proud Arizona native and even though I travel a lot and fall in love with so many places, I will always call the desert home.
