I'm a born and raised California girl who loves the sunshine, ocean air and modern vibes. I have a degree in Interior Design (aka: a million Art classes taken in college) and have a true passion for Art in all forms. As a travel obsessed gal who recently moved across the country with her hubby and two pups, I've been having a blast photographing people, places and things that move me and have a unique story to share. My hubby, Cameron, is my second shooter on my team and we would love to meet you and document your big day! I am Connecticut based but love any and every excuse to travel! I can't wait to meet you and hear your story!

We Do Photos Right.
