Searching for the perfect person to document your life can be overwhelming. And–– it's true–– all those picture-perfect portfolios can start to look the same! However, there are a few things that make every photographer special in their own right; those are the things you've got to look for. Here are a few things I want you to know about me and my style:

+ 7 years of residency later, I know every nook and cranny of Malibu's 27 miles of scenic coastline.
+ My National Parks Pass is my favorite photography tool. Zion, Yosemite, Havasupai Falls, and Sequoia have my heart.
+ It's more important to me to photograph how a moment feels over how it looks like. Rawness of feeling will always trump technical perfection.
+ I LOVE children. If you have an amazing flower girl or ring-bearer they may or may not steal the show.
+ Hauling a backpack of gear while walking backwards up a mountain (so I can take photos of you!) is basically a pastime. If you're down for an overnight backpacking trip in the Sierras, even better! I can show you my favorite lesser-known spots.
+ I bring snacks!

Whatever crazy adventure or intimate session you have in mind, I offer carefully crafted packages and products to ensure you have the best experience possible. From tailoring a wedding package to guiding you to an elopement spot scouted specifically for you to designing your album, I will walk with you each step of the way to create something completely unique to your story.

If you're interested in booking a date or curious as to what an adventure session with me would be like (hint: road trips to Zion are not out of the question...), or just feel like throwing on your hiking/climbing shoes, grabbing lemonade, and telling me about your hopes and dreams on the trails in Malibu –– I want to hear from you. Shoot me a message and I'll get back to you as soon as possible with availability and other details!
