Capturing the spirit, elegance and romance of your special day.

Your wedding is one of the most important events in your life, and a photographer has only one shot to capture this beautiful day. A photographer who can capture a couple in that moment must be able to make decisions on lighting, situation, subject and perspective quickly as well as having the flexibility, technical skill and creativity to adjust their plan to accommodate changing weather, delays, last minute requests and any surprises. You deserve beautiful photographs that will last a lifetime and be shared with friends and family for generations.

I started my career in the photography industry 25 years ago in Orange County, CA, gaining valuable experience in fashion and wedding photography. Working in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Southern California, I had the unique opportunity to learn from some of the best style and wedding photographers, shaping my own sense of style and technical expertise. In 2000, I began my own company and applied what I'd learned, offering a relaxed candid style that breaks the stiffness of poses and creates an incredible combination of light, place, composition and your personal story that results in showcasing not just the beauty of the moment but the inner beauty of you. After photographing subjects ranging from nervous brides, formal executive portraits, and even Cirque de Soleil performers, my talent is to effortlessly connect with the subject in a way that makes them feel at ease so that who they really are radiates from the photos.

To help my clients feel comfortable about being photographed, which can be nerve wracking if being in front of the camera is not your norm, we meet to discuss the big day and options on how best to tell your story. From there, you decide what package makes sense for you, and I create a plan and timeline for the event.

Long in the making, YOU deserve to enjoy your wedding day knowing that my photography will beautifully capture the love you are feeling. My experience making people feel comfortable being in front of the camera, will allow you to shine. My natural talent and technical know-how and decades of experience will provide you with a stunning set of photos that tells your story in a timeless style that can be enjoyed for years to come.

Let's get in touch and start creating the plan for your perfect day.
