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.
+ 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 shooting to designing your album to printing some amazing art, I will guide you each step of the way to create something completely unique to you.

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 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!
