At the core of my practice as a wedding photographer, I believe…
... that if your wedding traditions are not authentic and meaningful to you, then you deserve the freedom to build new traditions.
... that men, women, and people of all genders are beautiful and deserve to have that beauty celebrated.
... that we are most beautiful when we love fully and without reserve.
... that no wedding or elopement is too small to commemorate.
... that photographs are the record of memory and of personal history.
... that you deserve to remember this.
With a bright and fresh style, I embrace vibrant color, rich emotions, and natural splendor. You love the way your wedding location looks - why would I want to dull its colors?
I specialize in small weddings and elopements - celebrations intimate enough for you to focus on each other and yourselves, and I celebrate the unique visual and emotional elements of your story.
I originally trained as a painter, but became captivated by photography in my second year of art school. For years, I worked as a product photographer during the day while moonlighting as a fine artist, creating abstract photographs full of color and light.
After eloping in the desert, I was inspired to use my skills to help other couples create and commemorate the most exhilarating and authentic wedding experiences.
When I'm not photographing, I'm reading speculative fiction, hiking until my legs ache, drinking truly excessive amounts of tea, and eating all of the tasty snacks I can find.
I am a queer introvert, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I live with my beloved spouse Aaron and our Maine Coon mix, Choo.
With a strong love for the outdoors and a dedication to keeping these amazing spaces amazing, I am a certified Leave No Trace Aware Photographer. Please visit LNT.org for more information about how you can protect and nurture the wilderness spaces you love in your own elopements and adventures.
