What I love, What I do

I’m a Dallas based Wedding photographer who loves her job! I’m also a mom to Lou (she’s a crazy toddler) and wife to Tyler (my BFF and the smartest person I know). I love to travel – so much that we lived in Barcelona, Spain for almost five years and took trips every few months in between shooting weddings. I love dining out, especially Asian cuisine, and tinkering on my website. I use the word “love” a lot to describe the things I, umm…love.

I’m a California girl at heart. I lived there for most of my life before living in Spain and finally settling in Dallas. Most days, you’ll find me sitting at my desk at home drinking coffee, editing, emailing or chasing after Lou. I have an MA and MFA in English and Creative Writing but shot weddings all through undergrad and grad school. It took graduating to realize I wanted to be a photographer full time! Grad school is where I met my husband though, so no regrets! Tyler is super outdoorsy and runs long distances. He ran from rim to rim to rim of the Grand Canyon – all in one day! That means on days off he usually gets us out for a hike. Which I usually appreciate once I’m outside (I am not outdoorsy).

So how would I describe my photography style and what I do? Spontaneous and natural with an emphasis in photojournalism and fine art. I capture the overall mood and ambiance of your wedding day, including you and your guests, but I also compose detail shots – your dress, jewelry, invitation suite – as well as create beautiful images of you both together in an editorial style.

My goal on your wedding day is to gracefully and discretely capture the moments that show you and your partner truly in love, to frame you among your family and friends who are there to celebrate you, and to deliver timeless images that will be shared with your future generations.

- These are a few of my favorite things -
01

MY BOOS

Tyler and Lou are who I spend my days with. We eat dinner together as a family every night (when I'm not shooting a wedding!) and it's my favorite part of the day. We play Table Topics and make Lou eat vegetables.

02

COFFEE

No coffee, no workee. This sums up my day. I drink coffee every day and pretty much sip on one cup over the course of four hours. That's why I drink it out of my Yeti cup because it keeps it hot! Couldn't live without that thing.

03

TRAVEL

We live to travel! We prioritize this over things like fancy cars. We try to take one big trip a year. I love traveling for weddings too, but even when it's just for fun, my camera comes with me. And usually a lot of film.

04

BARCELONA

We called it home for nearly five years. Lou was born there! I learned so much about Spanish culture and just how diverse of a country Spain is through visiting its different regions. But out of all Spanish cities, Barcelona is my No.1. It'll forever feel like home to us.

05

HAMILTON

We're music buffs around here, and I love showtunes. Lately, I'm obsessed with Hamilton. I haven't seen it, but I know all the music. Lou even sings along to it! It's coming to Dallas 2018, so we have something to look forward to!

STYLE & BEAUTY

Vogue and Martha Stewart Weddings are two of my favorite magazines and where I get a lot of inspiration. I'm a sucker for buying magazines and nail polishes. You'll always see me with painted nails. I often do them myself and Essie "Muchi Muchi" is my go to.
