  Nicholas & Kelly came all the way to Napa Valley, CA from Chicago to celebrate their birthdays and recent engagement. Their timing couldn’t have been any more perfect. They were able to escape the cold Chicago winter for some 85 degree California sunshine! I was honored to capture their love among lavender fields and […]

When I first heard of WOW air’s discount flights to Europe, I thought it was too good to be true. I mentioned to Brennan about my idea to leave for a month after graduating college and before I started a “big girl” job. After a little convincing and research, we booked our round trip flights […]

  2016, you have been quite a year. I finally had a little time to spend the afternoon reflecting on what the past year held for me. Better late than never, right?! This last year was nothing close to easy, but it was also filled with the best experiences and accomplishes I’ve had yet. Between […]

Austin + Jessica | La Jolla, San Diego Engagement

These two had love brought to each other by fate. They met for the first time walking down the aisle together at another friends wedding. A true love story. The whole night after the ceremony the two were inseparable and now 15 months later, it was their turn. The whole day was calm and filled […]

Loomis, CA It’s harvest season in the valley and this lady could not be any more excited about it! I’m lucky enough to watch them grow and change through the seasons up until they are all picked from their vines and sent to be crushed for WINE. As I was wandering aimlessly through the vineyard […]

This love story began at the University of Nevada, Reno. Johnny worked at Lombardi Recreation Center and Ashley worked at UNR as well. Johnny started running off for coffee breaks more frequently to catch a glimpse of Ashley at her desk. Once he worked out the courage to ask her out, the rest was history. […]
