When it all comes down to it... when you're old and reminiscing on the "good ole days" with your equally wrinkled (but still smoking hot) babe by your side, pictures are the only thing you'll have to look back on and share for generations to come. I can think of no better gift than captured moments in time and this is what has really sparked my love for what I do. If you are looking for artistry and adventure, look no further.

When Alexis first contacted me about their wedding plans at an ancient Spanish monastery I was pretty hooked. After some digging, I found that this building had quite the history behind it… Construction of the Monastery of St Bernard de Clairvaux began in 1133 AD in Sacramenia, Spain. In 1925, William Randolph Hearst purchased the […]

Ancient Spanish Monastery Wedding || Miami, Florida


  Before we begin, What exactly is an elopement? I like to describe elopements as investing in what truly brings you joy and leaving behind everything that doesn’t. It’s curating your day to be exactly what you want, at whatever pace you want, surrounded by your closest friends and family. You get to bypass the […]

6 Reasons You Should Elope


Chanel and Nathan eloped in the Rocky Mountains a few weeks ago with they closest friends and family. The government shutdown may have altered our initial plans but that didn’t stop them from adventuring around the mountains. Take a peek into their adventurous day below:)

Natasha and Yoji’s love story is one of patience and trust. The kind were you meet each other, and your lives may not be aligned just yet, but you know deep down that you’re meant to be together so you wait and you trust. My trip to Colorado just happened to line up perfectly with […]

Estes Park Snowy Couples Session


 Melanie and Brian reached out to me a few months ago and brought up the idea that they wanted a rather different engagement shoot; one that involved smoke bombs and formalwear… Let me tell you, they had me at smoke bombs. For every shoot I do, I send my couples a little questionnaire so I […]

Melanie and Brian | Fort deSoto Engagement Session


Rachel and I go way back. Way back to 2008 when she was my gymnastics coach for almost 5 years (which seems like both yesterday and 20 years ago😆). The funny part is, she was engaged when she was still coaching me. That’s right, these two waited 7 years to tie the knot… but I must say, […]

Rachel and JW | A Dreamy Barn Wedding


Jen and Ryan wanted something a bit more laid back for their wedding and I’d say they delivered. After an intimate ceremony at the church, Jen and Ryan hosted their guests at the Salvador Dali Museum. Opting out of the traditional DJ and dance floor, they decided to have a live jazz band (which I […]

Jen and Ryan | A Wedding Night Under the Stars


I met Anna while I was an exchange student in high school and we instantly bonded over our love for photography and adventure. We’d wander off into the woods and put on these magical photo shoots and to this day those shots we took are still some of my favorites. Flash forward a few years, I went to […]

Aspin and Michael Tropical Engagement Session


This is a bit late (over 3 months to be exact) but I wanted to share some shots from our trip that last longer than the 24 hour Instagram story limit:) A few months ago I flew out to Las Vegas to join a good friend on the last week of her month-long road trip around Utah. […]
