This Styled Shoot was a passion project between myself and Michelle from Gunn Shot Photography. A styled photoshoot is a staged wedding where a team of wedding vendors come together and collaborate to bring their vision to life. It allows all the different vendors to really be creative and create something they may have otherwise […]

Their wedding date changed, then their venue changed after the location they were supposed to wed got closed down. What didn’t change was their love for each other and their desire to be married. They […]

Kristina and Randy are literally my DREAM clients. When I met them last Summer I knew I had to shoot their wedding. They are sweet as can be, quirky, adorable, they LOVE Disney (Kristina is basically a real-life Disney Princess), a bit nerdy (like me), and they were getting married in Yosemite. I could not […]

This cute little backyard barn is the perfect setting for intimate weddings and gatherings. Liz, the owner of Scott Family Ranch completely rebuilt this barn with her husband and I think they did an amazing job. It has such a rustic modern feel to it. Jared and Kyli were the models for the shoot. These […]

I first met Tasha & Nolen last summer during their engagement session. These two were hilarious and we had such a good time at their engagement shoot. About a month later Tasha saw my booth at the Bridal Collective Bridal Show at Morovia Winery, she came right up to me and gave me a big hug (seriously, she’s a great hugger!). Tasha told me how much she loved her engagement photos and how everyone else loved them. She told me that when it came time to book their wedding photographer they knew it had to be me, that Nolen wouldn’t accept anyone else. I don’t know if they knew how much that meant to me, I do this because I LOVE it and don’t always hear back from clients about how much they love their images so to be trusted with their wedding day was a huge deal to me.

I love when I get to photograph couples before their big day! It really helps the bride and groom get comfortable with me and in front of my camera.
