Most days you can find me drinking black coffee, stuffing my face with Thai food (the spicier the better), traveling with my hubby, or watching Criminal Minds. If there's a strong wind & a pile of leaves there's a 85% chance I'll be found frolicking in it. I'd much rather be in the mountains than a shopping mall, and I'm a freakishly short human being. 5 feet tall to be exact, and I think I rock every inch of those 5 feet, thank you very much. (Insert hair flip here.) I am a dreamer, an adventurer, a girl who always has her bags packed, and a wife to my wonderful husband Andrew. We are based out of Oahu, Hawaii, but we looovveee to travel. I love serving the world by encouraging others to value their worth and chase after their God given calling.
I'm a photographer most passionate about capturing moments. I'm not about posing you in multiple (and awful) "prom-like poses" and then having you repeatedly smile at the camera. Can you say boring?! I want to capture who you really are in natural lighting. I want to photograph you and your love's quirks, laughs, and tears. I want to see the way you light each other up or laugh so hard you snort, making you both laugh even harder. Because THOSE moments are the real, authentic, wonderful moments of your engagement or wedding day you'll want to remember. They are much more valuable to me (and if you feel the same you've come to the right place.)
I want to get to know you as a friend and give you a killer experience. It's not just about photos for me, and you're not just a number on my calendar. I’ll be honest, if you are just looking for any person with a camera, I’m not your girl, and that’s ok! I’m crazy passionate about people who invite me into their lives to document their story. I'm a photographer for the adventurers, the wild, and the whimsical, the brides who don't mind getting their dress a little dirty or sneaking out of their reception for sunset photos. Eloping in the mountains? I'm there in a heartbeat. Getting married in a National Park? Sign me up for that! I specialize in outdoor weddings and adventurous elopements, but honestly, no matter where your adventure takes place, if you value experience over perfectly posed photographs, we'd be perfect for each other. My style is bright and warm, with a hint of mood; photos that are raw, candid, and tell a story. That's why I'm in this, to tell YOUR story. I believe YOU have so much to offer this world and YOUR legacy is so worthy of being told. Let me tell it.
