Growing up I never imagined I would be a wedding photographer and actually swore when I went back to school for photography at 30 I would never do weddings. When I moved back to the Bay Area from Brooklyn, I second shot a wedding, got into my car and cried, not just a couple tears, I ugly cried and could hear my mother in my head saying "never say never because you know what that means." I fell in love with weddings instantly and in a way I knew there was no going back and since then have photographed over 150 weddings. I fell in love with it all - there is so much beauty in love, for the careful time spent getting ready, watching traditions combine when new families are formed, the flowers (I'm a sucker for pretty florals), the toasting and of course the dance party. You'll probably catch me dancing along as the night goes on.
Besides weddings I am passionate about photographing women and creating images where they feel beautiful and confident. Knowing a woman has an image she can reflect back on in 20 years - boudoir or maternity and think about that time rocks my world.
My favorite morning ritual is pouring my first cup of coffee.
I love getting lost in new cities near and far.The afternoon spent soaking in the coast is one of my favorite ways to recharge. And I love the word swoon. Try to say it and not smile. Bet you can't!
