Why I’m a wedding photographer

I first fell in love with weddings my senior year at Cal Poly when a woman I didn’t know, found a website I made for school and asked me to photograph hers. Having never photographed one before, I threw myself into the industry, bought a trillion wedding magazines, stocked blogs and learned everything I possibly could. Weddings bring an exhilaration that can’t be matched. And the people and joy I experience along the way turn this crazy industry into family.

My Love Story

Andy and I were 19 when we met as sophomores at Cal Poly SLO...I know, crazy young! His roommates were on a mission to meet girls [true story...] and my roommates and I were invited to a birthday bonfire they were hosting. After a few games at the beach our friendship began.

We started dating a few short weeks after we met. Flash forward a few more weeks...birthdays...graduations...long distance...we’re now enjoying marriage in San Luis Obispo living the #SLOlife.

2016 marked 10 years together and 4 years of marriage. Planning our big day brought me so much closer to my brides. It brought a new understanding of the stress, joy, love and that whirlwind day they call your wedding.

Our french bulldog, Bruce, joined our family shortly after we got married and he is definitely our first-born ... He is a true clown and mascot of our small group’s softball team. People in SLO adore him and know me as “Bruce’s mom.” Last week a stranger asked to take a photo with him. #celebrity

WHY I’M A WEDDING COORDINATOR

There is something exhilarating about weddings and being a part of someone’s sweetest day of life. Because deep in the midst of the details and planning, somewhere between the bow ties and the bouquet toss, there is a wonderful story about a boy and a girl who fell deeply in love. I feel so incredibly blessed because I get to be a part of bringing that moment and that story to the surface.
