I capture the most romantic, joyful, and all around fun candids for California couples who value every special moment during their wedding day. From oceanfront to coastal cliff weddings, I am here to document every moment and place them in a gallery that tells your unique love story.

I believe that the raw, real, and emotional moments at weddings (whether small or large) should be documented and put into a gallery that tells your love story.

Wedding Photographer in San Jose California

My personality is all about warm, bubbly, and welcoming vibes! I love meeting new people and making them laugh. You will find that I am positive about any negative situation, and will fight fear with grace

My husband is my whole entire world and I base my values around our marriage. I believe in an equal partnership where both spouses have to be happy to be successful. Happy spouse, happy house. As a Navy Wife, time with him is most valuable to me. We cherish every moment together and you will find me spending time with him during most free days I have during the week- whether hiking, trying new local food places, or just chilling at home. 

My favorite thing to do is go on mission trips and serve under the lord by giving back to the community. I love helping other people. When you support me and my business, you support my mission trips around the world. I am able to serve others when you allow me to serve you as your wedding photographer. 

The reason I started my own full-time photography business is because I really wanted to live off of the idea of "work so I can live". I did not want a normal life-sucking job. So, having this wedding photography business allows me to really take care of myself and my goals. My husband and I love traveling, and together have been to 9 countries. Our time on this earth is short, and so we take each moment as a blessing.
