Most days you can find me drinking multiple cups of coffee (black always), listening to TSwift or watching Criminal Minds. If there’s a Thai restaurant within a 30 mile radius of me, you better believe I’m heading there immediately and ordering my favorite dish on the planet, Thai Green Curry (the spicier the betttaa!) I’m a huge dreamer, an adventurer, a girl who always has her bags packed, and a wife to my wonderful husband, Andrew. I’d rather be in the mountains than a shopping mall, and though I’m small (5’0” to be exact), my personality is like a firecracker. I love serving the world by encouraging others to value their worth and chase after their God given calling.
I'm Hawaii wedding and elopement photographer most passionate about capturing moments. I'm NOT about posing you in multiple (and awful) "prom-like poses" that make you feel stiff and awkward and remind you that you felt that way every time you look back at your photos. No no no no. I’m NOT about showing up on your wedding or elopement day a total random vendor stranger who is going to stick a big black box in your face and tell you to “fake” smile. HECKKKK NO. I’m gonna be your friend. I’m gonna get to know your story so I can photograph the way it actually FEELS. I'm gonna capture who you really are, your quirks, your laughs, and your tears. I want to see the way you light each other up or laugh so hard you snort, making you both laugh even harder. Because THOSE moments are the real, authentic, wonderful moments of your elopement or wedding day you'll want to remember years down the road. They are much more valuable to me (and if you feel the same you've come to the right place.)
I’m gonna get to know you as a friend and give you a killer experience. Because the experience of getting your photos taken MATTERS. It’s how I’m able to make my couples comfortable to get those giggly, intimate, candid in between shots that make you FEEL your love. It's not just about pretty photos for me, and you're not just a number on my calendar. I’ll be honest, if you are just looking for any person with a camera, or you need a photographer to check off your vendor list, I’m not your girl, and that’s ok! I know I’m expensive. I know I’m probably going to be one of the highest expenses on your wedding day. There’s a reason for it. Because I GIVE a damn about you and will do everything I can to make sure your wedding or elopement photos are ones you are proud to show your grandchildren one day. I’m crazy passionate about people who invite me into their lives to document their story. I got you and when I say that I MEAN IT. I'm a photographer for the adventurers, the wild, and the whimsical, the brides who don't mind getting their dress a little dirty or sneaking out of their reception for sunset photos. Eloping in the mountains? I'm there in a heartbeat. Getting married in a National Park? Sign me up for that! I specialize in outdoor weddings and adventurous elopements, but honestly, no matter where your adventure takes place, if you value the experience over perfectly posed photographs, we'll be perfect for each other. My style is rich and warm, with a hint of mood; photos that are raw, candid, and tell a story. That's why I'm in this, to tell YOUR story. I believe YOU have so much to offer this world and YOUR legacy is so worthy of being told. Let me tell it.
