I'm the creative force capturing timeless moments at the intersection of love and artistry. Based in Southern California, my journey as a destination wedding and lifestyle photographer has been a pursuit of passion, taking me to breathtaking locations and intimate celebrations. With an unyielding commitment to craftsmanship, I specialize in weaving the unique narratives of couples into visual masterpieces.

to capture beautiful, timeless photos for you to love & treasure forever

What I vow to my couples:

As your visual storyteller, I embark on a journey with you, dedicated to preserving the authenticity of your love!

Every click of my camera is an ode to your unique story, from intimate elopements to grand weddings.

Meet Guy, my wonderful husband, together, we've journeyed through 28 years of marriage. Both  born and raised in Southern California, our love story took a charming twist when we met in Utah at a Sundance work Christmas party and even though it wasn't love at first sight, it was pretty darn close. We have 3 beautiful kids, a handsome son in-law, and the sassiest & most fun granddaughter! And, did I mention, I'm a new 'chicken mom'? Strange to some, but to me, they've become my feathered obsession!

Let's talk photography! I have been a photographer for over 12 years now! What started as a way to cope with the sudden loss of my beautiful mother in the late summer of 2010 has turned into an amazing journey and career which I absolutely am grateful for and love so so much!

One of my very favorite things as a wedding photographer is to witness & capture the emotional moments, guiding you with posing, and all the in between moments.. My goal on your wedding day is to help you feel calm, confident & beautiful & create timeless and stunning photos for you to love and treasure.

If you are looking to add a standout video package to your elopement or wedding day, my daughter Rio and her husband Tane are a very talented duo & team and we often work side by side. We have very similar visions and style and would love to help make your wedding vision seamless and your expectations a reality!

My team and I would love to be a part of your amazing day, whether you are planning a quaint backyard wedding, an elopement with just the 2 of you, or if your dream wedding takes you across the world, we will be there for you, and with you. With experience, creative talent, love and care, we will serve you and capture your day!

My lens captures the essence of your unique story, one click at a time.

I am OBSESSED w/traveling! L.O.V.E it so much, makes me feel alive & I love to learn about different cultures, & explore our beautiful world!

Italy has my heart! I am 56% Northern Italian & everytime I am there I feel like it’s my home away from home.

My family immigrated from Buenos Aires, Argentina a few years before I was born, & I speak spanish fluently.

When our kids were growing up we lived on the soccer pitch! All 3 played competitive soccer & even though it pretty much took over our lives, it was worth it!

I love my chickens! I live in the suburbs but somehow convinced my husband to build me a chicken coop! I love my girls (hens:) so much & love the colorful eggs they lay for me...but my hubby still will only eat store bought eggs?! Crazy!

I DEFINITELY am not a morning person…...so please don’t plan a sunrise elopement, haha. I'm also not a coffee girl, but I love Chai+Matcha! There’s a good chance when we meet I’ll be holding one in my hand!

here's some fun facts about me:
