Meet your dream team.
I’m currently planning my own wedding, so I’m even more wedding-obsessed than usual! My fiancé and I live just south of Santa Barbara with our menagerie of animals. I’m an avid napper with serious weaknesses for beautiful shoes, modern bohemian style, frozen yogurt, and the city of Paris (where I spent a summer in college).
If you play guilty pleasure Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” on the dance floor at your wedding, I WILL dance like a crazy person. I apologize in advance.
When it comes to your wedding day, I will cry. It might be during your ceremony vows; it might be during your best man’s toast. I’ll also walk backwards down your aisle to make sure I’m capturing all the joy around you while you head for the biggest party of your lives.
I live in Los Angeles with my two incredible children, our teenage puppy Sgt. Pepper, and our cat Raisin. I love watching reruns of “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” I read my daily horoscope, and if I only ate sushi for the rest of my life, that would be fine by me.
Your wedding ceremony will be my favorite part of your big day; I love seeing couples scoot a little closer to each other during the vows. It’s always a good reminder of how sweet love is!
When I’m not shooting weddings, I love to catch up on Netflix with my husband and son (and we have a sweet little girl on the way!), or experience the great outdoors; the Eastern Sierras and Joshua Tree are among our favorite travel spots. We love to refresh and take a step back from all the normal routines and task lists.
I’m originally from Hawai’i and love to surf, but I’m also happy to take to the California mountains in winter to enjoy snowboarding. I love to travel (my husband, two girls and I particularly enjoy camping) and I am more than a little obsessed with Christmas — I always go ALL OUT with decorations, and at this point I have an annual allowance for buying new ones so I don’t go overboard.
My favorite part of a wedding day is family photo time! It’s usually the most crazy, but I love seeing family dynamics.
