Southern California-Based Wedding and Elopement Photographer
Let's go tell a story together.
For the everyday couple- having a stranger with a camera to document one of the most significant days in your life can be daunting. Add to the mix if you claim to be awkward in pictures- now this whole thing is mortifying. I've heard it and I hear you. I GOT YOU HUNNY.
I promise to take the pressure off you and put it on me. I promise to be a listener and a friend first before a photographer- and when my camera is up, I promise to translate your love story into pictures with the utmost care, honesty, and genuineness. You have my word.

I was born and raised in sunny Ventura, CA. I've got a Brazilian mother, a Jewish father and a 2019 Jeep Wrangler that I love more (if not equal to) crime tv.
I'm 1 of 3 sisters
(and a little brother not pictured). We're like " The Three Amigos that constantly fight," but we drop anything/everything to be there for eachother. If you have sisters, I think you can relate... :)
I was a bartender before a wedding photographer
All of these women I have worked late LATE nights with for almost a decade and when I started in photography, I used them all as my models. EVERY SINGLE ONE.
I'm a mom!
Welcomed this beauty of a bean into the world December 2021 and my world has since flipped for the best. Call mama bias- but that's one cute baby!
I'm a marathon runner
To date, I have run 8 of them (and countless halfs)- my most significant one being the 2018 New York marathon. I raised over $6K for the American Lung Association in honor of my father, who suffered from Pulmonary Fibrosis. He lived to see me reach my $5K goal but passed away weeks before the race. I ran with purpose and a heavy heart that day.
