Life is... unwinding in a yoga sesh after a long day, pretending to be a dog trainer with my red doberman, shamelessly binge watching on Netflix or having a dance party for one on a long road trip alone. 

The core of what I love includes: God, diving into scripture, baking macarons and cookies with my husband, and learning random things like languages, digital marketing, a new board game, or random non-sense like the origin of traditions and words. In a nutshell, I'm a nerd.

Rejoice in the Lord always. Philippians 4:4

Fun fact: I was a campus staff minister through InterVarsity Christian Fellowship for 5 years before becoming a full-time wedding photographer. My faith is something that shapes who I am, how I love others and gives me purpose.

i'm an entertainment junkie.

When I'm editing, I'm always watching something on Netflix through my iPad which sits on the corner of my desk. I majored in Film in college, so naturally - I'm obsessed. Music has also been a huge part of my life, and I'm all about live music. Recently I saw Taylor Swift, Beyonce and went to Coachella last year! Fave band of all time, though? Radiohead - for sure.

the big red doberman.

Look at that sweet little girl! People are often intimidated by her because she's kind of big and is a doberman. But Roja is a giant sweetheart that barks all for show and deep down just wants to cuddle and watch Netflix too. When she sees dogs or horses on the TV, she'll definitely come up running to the TV to see them closer.

all things joyful.

It's kind of fun to do the impossible. - Walt Disney

And by all things joyful... I mean: laughter, making cheesy jokes that make my friends embarrassed for me, yummy bougie food, all things pastries, puppies and sleepy kittens, travel, lazy days, long conversations, a relaxing yoga session, and of course... Disney! Duh.

I'm an award-winning photographer based in central California, but I also love traveling for weddings. My favorite types of images are the ones that come out of the fun, joyful and genuine moments. This means, while I do a bit of light posing for your portraits (so you don't feel awkward), I emphasize on candids.
