I never in my life though that I'd be a professional photographer but I wouldn't have it any other way! I am a 28 year old Southern California native that is torn between the ocean and mountains. I picked up my first camera in 2010 because I was super bored one day so I took photos of motorcross and friends for fun. Next thing I know, 8 years later i'm traveling the world and taking photos of families and couples in love. ughhhh...I am seriously one of the most luckiest people in the world! I have a BIG obsession with Jiffy Pop Butterlicious popcorn and unsweetened iced tea. I was supposed to be a surgeon but photography took over my heart. I was a nurse for a while but on Thanksgiving in 2019 i decided to bite the bullet and leave the medical field to be a full time photographer. Handing over that two weeks notice was probably the scariest moment of my life but I followed my dream and am sooooo happy!
I have an incredible boyfriend(NOW FIANCE) that is actually the inspiration behind a good portion of my images. We met when we were 19 years old at a mutual friends welcome home party. The night we met we talked for ours and towards the end of it he said "will you marry me?' I just laughed and immediately friendzoned him and we were bestfriends since then. And yes, I am laughing while writing this because little did I know, 6 years later, he would make it out of the friendzone and become the love of my life. MEN....IT IS POSSIBLE!! lol. All the cute little things that I make you and your significant other do during my sessions are things that my boyfriend does on a regular bases, He gives me the best ideas and makes my work that much better!

I have an incredible team of photographers, videographers, photobooth attendants and much much more! I'd like to think of us as a one-stop-shop and we all aim to give you the photography experience possible. We are those vendors that you'll find dancing on the dance floor next to you with cameras in our hand singing our lungs out. We are the ones that hype you up to the fullest and never let that get brought down. Each one of us have our own secrets up our sleeve to get those perfect shots. Like Rollie(photographer) is seriously a light MASTER. He can bounce light like nothing I've ever seen before and make it his B%*^H. lol. Melanie(photographer)....oh Melanie....you are the one I go to when I need to be hyped up myself. I thought I was always the life of the party...NOPE....I dont think I've ever seen a grown woman have as much energy and smiles as much as she does. Melanie specializes in tropical locations and I think she was meant to be a mermaid. Andrew(videographer) and I met at a wedding and instantly clicked! The video that he made from that wedding had the most dramatic ending and made me cry the entire time. I sent that couple a photo of me crying while watching their wedding video and they made me into a meme. haha! Magaly(photographer) just had the cutest baby girl!! ughhh...I am obsessed with her! lol. Magaly puts 100% of her heart into photography and she does certain prompts that amaze me everytime and easily gets smiles out of the couples within like .5 seconds. These are just a few of the team members and we all can't wait to meet you!
