I’m a bi-coastal photographer, from CA to PA, and fan of unposed, giddy-in-love, melt-my-lenses-editorial-style moments … oh, and a t-shirts and jeans.

As the cooler fall weather rolls in, these two had no problem cuddling up for a romantic session in the forest with a surprise ending.

Woodsy Engagement Session

Eleven years ago I slung a camera strap around my neck, and I’ve been capturing moments and memories that will be cherished for generations to come ever since. My goal? Put you at ease in front of the camera and document what matters and giving you something timeless in a fleeting world.

  This week I’m dusting off the archives! Some wedding seasons of the past just got too busy that I only blogged a sneak peek and the full post never happened. So, I’m changing that since these weddings deserve to have their moment! This is the wedding of Marius and Jackie in beautiful Blairsden, CA- […]

Graeagle Wedding at Feather River Resort

If this session doesn’t make you smile, you need to go do some soul searching. When I arrive to a newborn shoot, there are a few loose plans but really, I like to let things just happen. This was a slam dunk example of how letting big sister do her thing and jump in when […]

The Burckhard Family Newborn Session

Family

  I’m back in New Hope, Pennsylvania currently and love my extended visits back here! When I was in high school, a dear friend lived at Holly Hedge Estate. We all knew it was a special place, but as an adult coming back and photographing an event here, it really sunk in just how remarkable […]

Holly Hedge Estate Baby Shower

Couples

  You’re meeting with potential photographers and figure you’ll just wing it and see where the conversation goes. When I meet/FaceTime/chat with a newly engaged couple, we often get so wrapped up in chatting about everything else that by the time I ask if they have any particular questions for me, there may be a […]

5 Questions to Ask a Wedding Photographer

Business

  Nesting at home during those early days with a newborn is a precious and fleeting period of time. The freshly made nursery, awaiting baby’s arrival. The sweet decor that, let’s be honest, is really for us mom’s to have as a sanctuary of baby love. The Hoffman’s brought baby #2 home and this is […]

  Some wedding seasons are so packed with work, that blogging the entire wedding didn’t even make the to-do list! That said, I’m dusting off the archives today and publishing some weddings that have been hiding for some time and I’d still love to share. While my editing has changed slightly, I love that looking […]

Fleur du Lac Wedding

Weddings

2017 was a major restructuring, rebuilding and reinvesting experience around here. One of the first decisions I made back in December 2016 was to invest in a client management software. I’ve remained organized in my own way, but after 11 years of mom-and-pop’ing it and realizing I could be saving way more time, it was […]

    Heaven gained another angel and it’s with a heavy heart that I post this. A single mom to two wonderful girls, Sarah Herndon remained positive and such a bright light of hope in her four year battle with cancer. Sarah’s girls need our help now, as they push forward in their new normal, […]

  “May today be the day you love each other the least.”   These words were spoken by a minister at a wedding I photographed and they never left my memory. Your wedding day is one of the most joyful days of your life. You spend months planning such a precious day and if planning […]

A Beautiful Wedding Day Blessing

For Clients

When a wedding is held in a backyard, and the backyard is acres of rolling Placerville hills, with horses nestled in one area, beside a cobblestone home, and the hill from a peaceful pond, the wedding’s beauty will be endless. Their close-knit community of friends and family all played active roles in making the day […]
