I grew up out in the country, and we did a ton of roadtrips/camping trips as kids. And while I would’ve loved to have the excitement of ice cream trucks drive down our street and have block parties that all my townie friends had, I am so grateful to have been able to spend about most of my days barefoot and roaming around and letting my imagination soar. Being outdoors, and being able to be present and focus in the space we are in, was and still is incredibly therapeutic for me. I get out as much as I can, and love to hike, swim, relax on the beach, do yoga, paddle board, and (pre-kids!) run and surf.
Nowadays my husband Andrew and I live on Oahu and have 3 young kids-2 boys and a baby girl! We are honestly always still mostly spending our free time outside as a family, planning and dreaming up our next mainland road trip, or doing home DIYs!
My foundation is on Jesus, and my life has been forever changed for the best after I put my faith and trust in Him. Our faith is the center of our marriage, family/kiddo wrangling and just navigating through some hiccups that have come our way.
I started photography after I fell in love with documenting and creating those authentic and real moments for couples. After trying out different types of photography, I got a taste for couple’s photography and elopement photography and was completely hooked. Elopements and intimate weddings really allow you to fully experience the moment, stripped from all the extras and distractions, and amplify the moments.
In a world full of instant gratification, distraction, and mass production, I want to invite you into a space that we can slow down together, be inspired on location, and create something really special + meaningful.
I would love to collaborate and capture you in a way that will allow you to experience both-“Wait, wha?? Is that us??!” And at that same time- “Aw!! This is totally us.”
My ultimate goal is to guarantee that you and your partner feel safe, comfortable, and confident during our time together, and that the images are a perfect reflection of you. I celebrate all body types and abilities, and embrace all of the little quirks that make you unique.
The images you will receive back will be nostalgic, cinematic, timeless, editorial and effortless.
Every one of my packages include:
- Location recommendations
- Styling expertise, based on location, weather, lighting, and photographic quality;
- Posing prompts, ensuring you and your partner never feel awkward in front of the camera;
- Wide variety images.
My editing style is true to color with some film inspiration. I want our photos we create to be timeless, and not go out of style in the upcoming years. Trends come and go, but your love is here to stay, and I want these photos to always be able to be proudly displayed.
Do we sound like a match? Get in touch! I can’t wait to hear from you.
