BEHIND THE CAMERA

I'm based in Santa Fe, New Mexico and OH my goodness, Santa Fe is in my bones. Seriously, don't get me started on Santa Fe cause I'll rant. But Santa Fe is more than just a city, place or a destination. To me, it’s home. It’s memories. Family. History. Meaning. Nostalgia. 

I guess I'm a little bit nostalgic and a lotta bit fun. A little bit corny but a lotta upbeat and JOYful that this is my job. Photographing weddings, hanging with you and your friends and family on the biggest day of your life keeping your photos real, epic, and fun so that I can come home at the end of the day and do it all again tomorrow? Yes. Seriously, this is the dream.

That's right, not one, not two, but three beautiful girls call me mommy. They are all 1.5 years apart, and they spend their days playing together, making me laugh, and driving me CRAZY. But I wouldn't change a thing!

I was born and raised here in the heart of the southwest: Santa Fe. I grew up running around and adventuring on my parent’s property, and routinely dodged yucca plants in my play. It might sound silly, but yuccas are a part of who I am and where I call home. I'm maybe slightly obsessed.
Fun fact: my logo is also a yucca bloom!

Theres just something about the way the sun catches on long desert grasses right before sunset. It slays me everytime. Also, totally unrelated, but wooden ceilings are also the best. #randomfacts #yasss

I married my high-school sweetheart when we were 18. Life is short, so why wait? It's not right for everybody, but it was right for us. We celebrated 9 years of marriage this June, and I still consider marrying him the best decision of my life.
