Lake Tahoe and destination wedding and portrait photographer

Hey there friend!

Your wedding will be the most beautiful day of your life, so why not have the photographs to prove it. I will capture your day and display your personality and the love of your wedding in your images. Everyone is unique and has their own personality; so I take that on as a challenge to show that through the images that I capture throughout the day. It is essential to have a photographer that you "click" with. So before I get to know you, here are a few things about me! 

I am a wedding photographer based 6,200 feet above sea level, otherwise known as South Lake Tahoe, California. I graduated from Cal Poly University in San Luis Obispo with a bachelor degree of fine arts with a  concentration in photography. 

Those unexpected moments are the ones that keep me going. Cats are my favorite; I am a cat whisperer to maybe the point that I was a cat in a past life. Anything pink or sparkly has my attention. It's a rare occasion if you catch me not wearing pink. I even ordered a custom pink pelican case my camera gear. I almost always have music playing, specifically country which can always make me happy! I never leave the house without my lipstick and my planner with a pink pen. I have the travel bug, I absolutely love traveling it is something that helps keep me creative.  My best adventure is when I took off for six weeks by myself with two suitcases and traveled all over Europe. Rome is my favorite far!  I ate gelato three times a day while I was there. You can definitely say that it is a weakness. I am an extreme girly girl. If there's an occasion to dress up and curl my hair, you can count me in! At the same time, I am very competitive and will go to the extreme to complete a challenge. Nothing can get in my way!
