I absolutely LOVE working with Vanna of Elope Mendocino.  She always puts together a beautiful elopement for me to photograph and her clients are always the SWEETEST! Thank you both Barbara, Jerry and Vanna for including me on this very special day.  Love Mendocino and love Elope Mendocino!




Jen and Matt, Married! Albion California

I have swiftly become the go-to girl here on the nor cal coast for elopement/intimate wedding photography. And I LOVE IT! I think it was the middle to end part of last year where I actually put it out into the universe how much I loved these types of wedding days (don’t get me wrong, I love me a full day of shooting too!) but there’s just something about smaller affairs that make this hopeless romantic love her work a wee bit more. I think it’s because my couple’s put their love first before the big party… but in the end, big or small, it really is just about the love two people share and want to make it ‘official’. So thank you Jen and Matt (and Chelsea of the Albion River Inn!) for inviting me into this precious part of your life.

Amanda and Bryce, Eloped! Mendocino California

A few weeks back I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Amanda and Bryce say I do. We had a wonderful time shooting at the inn where they were staying (Agate Cove Inn in Mendocino California) as well as shooting on the bluffs in Mendocino.  Thank you again Vanna of Elope Mendocino for including me into the A-team list of vendors who work with you. I appreciate it!

Dan & Julie, Married! Caspar Caifornia

Thank you Dan, Julie and both your friends and family who came together for your wedding day celebration, and included me in on it!  I had a wonderful time, albeit short & sweet (let’s talk about how I’m swiftly becoming the go-to girl for elopements!)  This elopement was a hybrid shoot for me (digital with my Canon & film with my Canon) so although I won’t have the entire elopement delivered until my files return from my lab, I did want to put out a few images as fun sneak peeks!  I can’t thank you all enough for letting me into your sweet circle to capture these moments.  Enjoy!


Tanya and Paul, Married at the Elk Cove Inn and Spa || Elk, California



Paul and Tanya were married at the Elk Cove Inn and Spa just a few days ago. Barbara, Tanya’s daughter joined in as well as Tanya’s parents via SKYPE all the way from Russia! The emotions ran strong, so much sweet love between everyone.  I personally could feel it between Tanya and Barbara because my own daughter is the same age and we’re just as close… it’s absolutely the best feeling in the world!  Thank you again ECIS for having me be a part of the A-team and thank you Paul and Tanya for trusting me with something so important as your wedding pictures.
