Mother Daughter Photo Session | Fresno and Los Angeles Family Photographer

I first met Christine and her daughter Falyn when they hired me last year as their professional photographer to take their Holiday Photos. It was obvious where Falyn got her pretty looks from as she stood next to her mom and introduced herself. I had so much documenting their relationship on camera so needless to […]


Dreamy Golden Hour Family Portraits | Los Angeles and Fresno Family Photographer

I LOVE this time of year – not just for the obvious reasons, but also to be hired as a professional photographer for all the family photo sessions. Everyone gets all dressed up to look their best and is excited to have updated family photos. Most people’s intentions for this time are just to send out […]


Lifestyle Portrait Session | Venice Canals | Los Angeles Lifestyle Photographer

When Maggie proposed that we take her photo shoot to the infamous Venice Canals, of course I did not object! Photographing at the Venice Canals is always so fun and fulfilling with the unique architecture, bright colors and sun shining on all the wonderful vegetation. Sometimes I get swept up in all the hustle and bustle […]


Engagement Party Celebration | Los Angeles Engagement and Wedding Photographer*

Even though Lindsay and Matthew have plans to elope in the wonderful tropical land of Maui next year, I was so excited to be hired as their events and party photographer to document their engagement party at one of their favorite restaurants, Sfixio in Beverly Hills. It was no surprise when the owners of the restaurant came […]


Grace Vineyards Charming and Vintage Wedding | San Francisco Wedding Photographer

I had the honored privilege to be hired as Julia and Paul’s professional photographer for their engagement session and also for their wedding photos. I have been looking forward to this wedding ever since we scheduled their engagement session last year! As you may remember, we spent the day roaming around in the lovely city of […]


Elizabeth + Caesar | Second Camera | Los Angeles Wedding Photographer | Second Camera Perspective

The moment I got to the house, I could tell that Caesar was ready to take on his big day! He was casually hanging out with friends and family, but it was so sweet to see him with anticipation to see his lovely bride. Throughout the day friends shared how Caesar and Elizabeth talked about […]


Julia + Paul | San Francisco Engagement Photographer

I spent a fantastic day with Julia and Paul (and Riley their sweet German Shepherd!) in the city of San Francisco. I was so excited when they suggested having their photos done in the city since San Francisco has so much to offer for great scenery and backdrops! We started the day in Potrero Hill to get […]


Bristol + Stuart | Santa Ynez Wedding

Bristol’s parent’s multi-acre ranch property in Santa Ynez was the perfect location for their wedding. The property contains a giant Oak tree that has formed this beautiful, organic shape and I love that Bristol and Stuart chose to have the ceremony underneath this gorgeous tree. Everything was so unique about this wedding; from the location to […]


Brianna + Marcus | Tehachapi Backyard Wedding | Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

These two hold such a unique bond with their strong chemistry that it was such a pleasure to capture their big day. Brianna and Marcus are a genuine pair and once you get to spend some time with them, you know that they were made for each other. I’m so excited to see where life […]


Kristen + Devin | Fresno Engagement Photographer

It feels like I have known these two for my lifetime and I love that I can hold true to those words because well, I have. Kristen and I go all the way back– circa 2001 when I met her in the third grade and it has been such a pleasure to still remain close […]
