Iceland! To drive around the coast and get lost in the mountains sounds like an absolute dream. It has been at the top of my bucket-list for years!
In Southern California, Blacks Beach and Anza Borrego have my complete heart. There is something so calming and beautiful in each one, I can't help but feel extra inspired every time I visit.
A recent bride refurbished her grandmothers wedding dress to be used as her bouquet ribbon. It was such a beautiful and meaningful gesture, honoring and carrying her presence with her for the day. The moment I will never forget was when the bride showed the bouquet ribbon to her grandfather. It felt like the world froze. The rawness, power, and emotions from simple gestures like this remind me just how much I love my job.
Happiness for me is measured in love. To be surrounded by friends and family, to give and receive endless support. There is no physical item or monetary value that could ever compare, in my opinion, to the love and human connections we have and make.
I am completely afraid of heights, but I am also completely in love with rock climbing! For me, it's about pushing personal boundaries and stepping out of my comfort zone.
I often feel the most inspired when I'm immersed in nature. I can't really explain it, but being surrounded by beauty just fills my soul.
I am always down for a roadtrip and have driven across the country 4 times!
Apart from photographing weddings, I enjoy getting creative with editorial and lifestyle shoots.
My cat, Oliver, is ridiculously charming and goofy. He is my best friend! 😂
Wine and cheese are the true key to my heart!
