about me: i believe we are put on this earth to experience love - platonic, familial, romantic. 

i have the height-to-wingspan ratio of an nba basketball player. 

i live in a sweet little home in Richmond, California, with my favorite human/husband, Charlie. one day we'll get ourselves a dog.

i got hooked on photography when i was 22. i took a Polaroid in Chennai, India of my rickshaw driver Sami, and his girlfriend. she held the photo to her heart and asked if she could keep it. quickly, a swarm of children surrounded us - each shouting for their turn. 

their skin and smiles glowed against their brightly colored saris, shorts and tees. after them, a man asked to be photographed with his truck - his pride and joy. next, a business man in a navy suit adjusted his watch and held his briefcase at his side.

as the Polaroids developed, vivid colors bleeding into the frame, each person asked to keep theirs. i watched the business man take a long look at his new belonging, and i imagined him going home and sharing the photograph with his family. the thought made me grateful, and happy.

i’m a California wedding photographer, specializing in documentary style storytelling.
i love & support the LGBTQ+ community.

About me & my work life: I believe that weddings are an act of gratitude.

I grew up in New York and studied television & film; I moved to Los Angeles and spent four years in entertainment before moving on to photography. I wanted to find and tell smaller, more personal stories. 

I gravitated towards wedding photography at a time when folks were beginning to flip industry expectations, and felt inspired by the idea that I could come in and document a wedding day with truth and empathy in mind. I keep that at the core of my work.

Today I live in Northern California, and I’m over 150 weddings in. I feel so lucky to be welcomed in to your innermost world; trusted to tell the story of your sweetest gestures, most meaningful meals, and wildest dance moves.
