Ready for this adventure, lovely?

I photograph amazing boutique weddings, intimate elopements and adventure couples sessions worldwide. I would LOVE to be your personal guide, help you find your epic landscapes and create an unforgettable adventure tailored to your vision for the day! 

 

After we settle on the vibe you're going for and the type of terrain you enjoy exploring, I will start researching specific locations for your session. I use professional tools to map out hiking trails and to determine the best season and light during the day of your shoot. If our travel schedules happen to sync up, or you're stoked to just meet me anywhere, I will explore that area uniquely to match your vision!

Have you always envisioned getting married somewhere amazing? LET'S DREAM UP YOUR WEDDING DAY CAPTURED IN UNPOSED, AUTHENTIC, MOODY FILM-LIKE IMAGES. 

If you see yourself surrounded by a circle of your favorite people somewhere in the Mojave desert, watching the stars at night by a campfire and dancing to melancholic melodies, that’s crazy amazing! Or maybe you envision yourself overlooking the rugged cliffs of California coastline, smelling pines and eucalyptus while the wind carries your vows towards the vast ocean. OMG, sign me up! But, at the end of the day, your wedding should be about you two. It should be your expression that tells your story. Whatever that looks like, I am here to capture it for you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It would be rad to explore these beautiful locations together, while documenting your journey. Reach out if you are planning on eloping, doing a destination wedding or just envision an adventure engagement session in breathtaking places.
