Photographing intimate weddings for laid-back couples in Oregon and around the world. Colorado will always be home and I am always up for returning to photograph couples madly in love.

I’ve been a photographer for over 10 years. From Iceland to Antarctica, Colorado to Bend, Oregon, I’ve captured photos of incredible human beings, and I’ve quickly found that my passion is photographing elopements & small weddings. There is so much goodness and love on a wedding day – the great joy I get at being the person behind the camera borders on ridiculous.

One clients described me as an “emotion vulture,” which both makes me laugh and makes me puff out my chest a little. If a vulture is circling and waiting for the perfect moment to swoop in, then heck yeah, I’m your wedding day photo-vulture! I’ll capture moments you thought couldn’t be rendered on film and you won’t even know I was there (Alright, fine, you’ll definitely know I was there. I’ll be the one with the big camera in front of her face.)

Since I first studied abroad in rural Spain when I was 17, I haven’t been able to stop chasing beauty and new experiences. I’ve been lucky enough to visit 13 countries including Antarctica, where I met my husband. I know, who goes to the least populated continent on the planet and finds true love? That would be me. And, I can’t wait to hear how you met your partner.

Whether you’re having an intimate mountain wedding, saying your vows in the mist of one of the waterfalls near the McKenzie River, planning a stylish backyard vow renewal, or traveling abroad to elope, you can count me in. My camera and I are ready to meet you in your element and preserve the moments you never want to forget. I am fully vaccinated and ready to safely explore the world again.
