While I still have so much to learn about business, photography, and life, I love being in a community that supports and inspires each other, so I try to share what I know and have learned as often as I can. I am always open to answering questions, and spend a lot of time learning from others within the business. I decided to open up my inbox to some questions in the hopes of sharing some of what I've learned in the past year. Thanks to everyone who sent in some questions....Read More
There is nothing better than exploring new locations with fun and adventurous couples. I had begun talking to Wes almost 6 months prior to our actual session, and time flew by in between our first convo and the day of the actual session. We met at Potrero Hills overlooking the skyline of San Francisco. Despite local traffic, we were able to get some awesome shots with this scenic background view. We drove over to Bernal Heights after and took our time walking around the hill, getting to know the two of them, and playing a ton of games. Despite being nervous initially, they warmed up to me super quickly and we got some awesome images!

I genuinely think that I have the coolest job in the world. I get to be there to capture so many incredible moments for people, and was beyond blessed to be able to capture the sweet, romantic proposal that Gurjant planned for his now-fiancee Jasmeet.
Weeks before the actual proposal, he was beyond excited to get down on one knee. While it took a bit longer to get the ring than originally expected, once the delivery day was known, he set the date. I walked onto the beach at Crissy Field with rose petals, a picnic basket, and cupcakes (of course!), and, despite having to be weary of many dogs who wanted to get to the cupcakes, we were ready. As he led her to a sandy spot overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, I hid nearby, camera in hand ready to capture the moment. And... she said yes! From there we made our way to Palace of Fine Arts and Lovers Lane to get some post-proposal engagement shots.
Maria -- from Fiesta Flix Photography -- was an absolute joy to work with. It's always such a high honor when a fellow photographer likes your photos enough to want to hire you to take their photos, and I was beyond excited for the chance to photograph Maria to help her get some photos for her website...Read More
About two months ago, when my brother ordered a new projector for the house, I knew I needed to take a shot at projector photography. It took me a few weeks, but eventually I got Gabby (@sleepyella) to come to the house, look into a bright projector, and help me work with some different backdrops...Read More
There is nothing better than exploring new locations with people who are local to the area. I was shown one of my all-time favorite shoot locations by Ksenia & Elana when I spent a weekend in Santa Cruz earlier this month.Read More
