These three girls… I’m pretty sure they stole the whole worlds’ hearts when Amanda came onto ‘The Bachelor.’ She was by far one of the most stunning, sweetest, and kind hearted of all the girls! I know that she was a favorite of mine and all of my friends, and we were ALL rooting for her! We all loved her immediately but even more so when her sweet daughters, Kins and Char, came onto the show on the hometown date. What a sweet family! Amanda and her beautiful girls are even more stunning and sweet in person, and I was honored to meet up with them for this mommy and me session at the most lovely vineyard in Southern California. Such a blessing to spend the evening with them exploring, picking flowers, laughing, and taking pretty photos!

Wishing you love and light,








This is one of my absolute favorite weddings to date. Kourtney had such an incredible vision and planned this entire Gold Beach, OR wedding all the way from Texas! We had talked throughout the year about wedding plans, but everything came together even more beautifully than I could have imagined! All the handpicked florals from her aunt, the handmade arbor from her parents, and the stunning location made this wedding one to remember! 

It was important to Nick and Kourtney to get married overlooking the river where Kourtney grew up. I love that wherever you were at the wedding you could look over and see the river surrounded by mountains. Oregon’s beauty never ceases to amaze me.

This couple was such a joy to work with, and I was truly honored to witness their wedding. So many family and friends came together and everywhere you looked there were smiles. It was a true celebration of a couple that could not be more perfect for each other!

This. This is one of my all time favorite sessions. Stephanie and I started talking about doing an anniversary session over email, and I could not have been more excited. Not only did we have the most beautiful location picked out, but Stephanie sent me a photo of an incredible Leanne Marshall gown that she was planning on wearing and I just about lost it! And to top it off, it’s the exact same gown Carrie Underwood wore to host the CMA’s recently. So not only was I in love with the dress itself, but even a little starstruck by the previous owner!

I was already anticipating it being a beautiful session but it was even better than I could have imagined. Kilham Farms, tucked in the hills of Nicasio, CA was the perfect backdrop. Stephanie and Patrick arrived (and yes, she is even more stunning in person!), and we went exploring through this beautiful farm, taking gorgeous photos and petting all of the horses!

As we started shooting, I realized that I didn’t even have to do much directing! These two melted into each other so beautifully and were full of little kisses and laughs the entire session! They are the perfect match, and I was so honored to capture their love in celebration of their anniversary.

Kyle and Katie are two of the most fun-loving people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I got to meet them first at their fall engagement session, and Katie walked up in a stunning red gown and the most beautiful fall floral arrangement made by her mother. I knew immediately that they were going to be a dream to photograph, but it got so much better when I got to know them a little more. They were both full of laughs and love, and that truly made for the best engagement session. I’m always so blessed by a couple that shares my love for beautiful and romantic photos, but when they are a  joy to be around as well, it makes my job less like a job and more like a fun day with friends. Fast forward to their beautiful wedding day in Salem, OR and it was just as amazing. Katie and Kyle chose the stunning Deepwood Estates for their venue, and it is acres and acres of greens and gardens. Katie imagined a secret garden wedding, and this venue was the perfect setting. Florals arrangements made my Katie’s mom and books and beautiful details were everywhere as guests gathered to celebrate. Katie and Kyle said their vows in the most incredible garden with green archways and flowers adorning the isle. As lovely as the day was, my favorite part was seeing the big smiles on Katie and Kyle’s faces as they headed back up the isle after the ceremony. It was an absolute dream of a wedding and I was so honored to be a part of it!
