I'm a California native, but currently reside in the beautiful state of Utah. I first fell in love with photography when I was 14 years old and living in Chile. My camera became a second pair of open eyes to capture everything around me. I began traveling South America and documenting every little detail I saw. Fabrics, fresh farmers markets, the countless homeless dogs, unique plants, breathtaking cities, and most importantly: people. Endless amounts of people. I was hooked with the toothless smiles, giggling children playing soccer in the street and constantly clasped hands.
My direction in the photo realm was established when I met the best man I know, and cheesily enough - fell in love with his details. Married at a young age, and created a life together. From the sweet & cheerful little three year old girl we have made together, to the insane duo of mangy spotted aussie-doodles we adore and call our kiddos. The stages of life move quickly, and the only tangible memories that stay with us are the photos we hold close to our hearts.
Love is everything.
I consider myself an artist, and my medium isn't just my camera - it's the people around me. I have a Bachelors degree in Photography, from Brigham Young University. I am a full time wedding photographer, and have been shooting weddings for 5+ years. I love the emotions and intimate moments of a wedding. I love creating life-long friendships with my clients, and calling them friends at the end of the day. I cry every time I hear the exchanging of vows and end up smudging the back of my camera with my weepy & useless tears. People making promises and committing to endless love and passion is what keeps me photographing wedding after wedding, year after year.
Long distance running, and pounding bass-filled headphones make my heart race, and not just because of the exertion. I love to read and write. When I'm old and grey I want to own a library in my house and fill it with words of the best poets and authors that overwhelm me in the best of ways.
Willing to travel, anywhere and everywhere. Lets be friends, eh?
