Engagements, Proposals, Elopements


Bumps & Babies, Kids, Families, Graduates, Professional Years, Adults & Anniversaries

I’ve been capturing weddings, family lifestyle photography and casual portraits for more than a couple decades now working primarily in the Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Napa, and San Francisco Bay areas, as well as all along the coastlines around San Diego and Coronado and everywhere in between. I’m inspired by outdoor adventures, travel, playful people, live music and amazing light and take advantage of any opportunity to capture raw emotion and natural beauty away from home. Covering all of life’s special events, from birth to graduation, engagement to wedding, 1st anniversary to 50th, I love connecting with my clients and sharing something memorable that will last a lifetime.

Mirielle, Rio Americano, Class of 2024

Wow! What a site the Rose Garden is at McKinley Park is in Sacramento right now! I highly recommend a Golden Hour stroll through the uncountable varieties of roses. Additionally, having a subject as naturally beautiful as Mirielle made it especially fun for me AND at golden hour. Let’s just say, I was not the only photographer in this garden. There were lots of us, unlike her sister Acacia’s senior session, a few years back during the Covid pandemic where we chose a quiet riverside location along Highway 50, that we had to ourselves. Currently, Mirielle is interning as a

Josh and Melissa

After enjoying a very snowy engagement session with Melissa and Josh earlier this year, I got to know them a little better. I love engagement sessions for that reason- it gives the opportunity, outside of a busy wedding day for a couple to get to know me and how I work and I get to know them, individually and also how they interact as a couple. This information can be priceless, especially on a day when everything doesn’t go exactly as planned. Little did we know at the time that their wedding day would bring in more weather, this time
