They said yes to an adventure. An adventure with only 4 days notice. With, at the time, a complete stranger (ME). A flurry of phone calls, mirror selfies, location & gps map links were sent. Soon, we found ourselves hugging and then huffing and puffing up a few of those golden Californian hiking trails. Stories […]

The room was quiet. So quiet you could hear a pin drop. Whether or not he was ready, it was here. The day had come. With a smile and a nod of thanks, he followed my directions to face away. To look out the window until he felt a tap on his shoulder. Her dress […]

Joshua & Katie’s Handmade Merlot & Blue Wedding || Indianapolis, IN

The first three seconds of that phone call and I knew. This girl was not just a friend of a friend, she was gonna be our friend, too. Her and her guy (who has an epic beard) in the San Francisco Bay Area + that golden, west coast light: it’s what dreams are made of, […]

  Those moments when your stomach hurts from laughing so hard. When the conversation turns deep. And you talk shop. And then laughter ensues all the more. I can’t believe this session – for my own personal, creative work – was nearly a year ago. This adventure with friends of a friend. Snoqualmie Pass will never […]

  Some have called me crazy. I say I’m just up for an adventure & only a flight away from the next. Jessi (aka the marvelous Echo Photography) and I have been like-minded photographers & friends – though different in style & region – for over a year now. What started as a Facebook message […]

DESTINATION WEDDING : Brian & Nathalia’s Springtime Wedding || Boston, Massachusetts

Destination Photography

  It was two days before my flight departed for Boston, Massachusetts, when I introduced myself over the phone. Almost immediately, I knew this was a match made in heaven.

  For the love all things gorgeous, everyone should be married in a garden. With mountains. And cedar trees. For me, Nate & Amy’s wedding was a destination wedding just outside of Seattle, Washington. It’s always an honor to be asked to assist talented friends (especially when it means flying to a new place) and […]

DESTINATION: Nate & Amy – A Wild Rose Wedding || Seattle, Washington

Destination Photography

  It is true, by the end of this year I will have been in three of my girlfriends’ weddings. I guess 2015 was a year for tying the knot and all in different states (did I mention I’m driving to Alabama in October for another friend’s wedding? This time I’ll be a guest). It’s […]
