I truly have the best job in the entire world and feel so incredibly blessed that I can do this for a living. Deciding to spend your life with the one you love is aREALLY BIG deal and I am a big time believer that your wedding photos should be timeless, authentic, filled with joy, and made with love.
I grew up on California’s beautiful central coast and while working in Germany, fell in love with a sweet German man and his home country. We married in 2011 surrounded by our nearest and dearest next to my family’s lakeside cottage in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I am living my dream and am based in both California and Europe and am available to photograph weddings throughout the world. My greatest love is my family, followed shortly thereafter by photography. I have a borderline unhealthy obsession with polka dots and am truly convinced even the greyest of days are made better wearing red lipstick. I love long bike rides on warm summer days, yoga, rose gold, french bulldogs (especially our little girl, Hazel), weddings, and being madly in love with love.
Photography has been a lifelong passion of mine, a hobby I fell in love with as a young girl during my family’s travels in Europe and Asia. Growing up, I would steal my father’s camera and have always had a great love affair with film. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA. I have been traveling and taking pictures ever since, living in San Francisco, Paris and Berlin, and truly love my job. Beyond my work as a wedding photographer, I work as a lifestyle and travel photographer and am honored to have had my work published in publications such as: New York Times T Magazine, USA Today, Conde Nast Traveller, PDN, Vogue.de, Matchbook Magazine, Cereal Mag, & sisterMAG. My editorial work not only keeps me constantly inspired, I feel it also adds a unique quality to my work and approach to wedding photography.
