Powerful…and also absolutely killer, chill in the best way, and totally unique to you two.

Honestly, it’s the coolest effing thing when you invite me into this sacred space to document your story through the lens of my camera. It’s a big deal, and I’ll always honor that. That means you can trust that I’ll document your elopement with authenticity and real emotion. These images become a MEMOIR.

When we work together, you can be confident you’ve got ALL of me. I don’t say yes to everyone, because YOU are worth my time, my energy and my talent. Let’s chat to see if we’ll be a good fit together.

Amanda is really empathetic and caring. She picked up on cues to really understand us. By the end of the night, she had just turned into one of the family.



I am passionately and vibrantly THERE for you during your photo session, but on my off days, I like to find quiet and solitude, especially outside


This is actually my second career, but when I picked up a Rebel film camera in 2010 and did my first photo session, I realized I could never go back 


Lake Tahoe is my homebase, but my real home is on the road in my rad van (check out my travel schedule to see where you can connect with me) 


My favorite post-elopement meal is Taco Bell but I love cooking at home while listening to a good podcast or book on Audible


I was born and raised in SLC, Utah but am drawn to a wandering life full of experiences—I’d love to meet you in an epic landscape that speaks most to you

I'm in it with you

Gushing at how cool you two are together, quietly wiping happy tears away during your ceremony and swooning over your love story months later...

I bring my whole heart to your experience.
