California based film photographer and super 8 videographer
and from where I’m standing, materialism and pageantry keep taking over everyone’s wedding experience, and I’m over it.
Film photography is for folks who live slowly and love wholly
In an era defined by overconsumption, hyper curated everything, and micro trends… analog feels ironically refreshing
So, 6 second videos can take several seats,
my love for film is here to stay.
This heart-to-heart motivated me to dig out my old film cameras and start experimenting again. I was immediately hooked. It’s still crazy to me how the cameras that are older than me feel the most refreshing.
Film and super 8 challenge me to think about each shot, and appreciate each exposure. I become more present, more deliberate with my technique. I hone a sharper, more observant eye. There is no “spray and pray” with film - mastery is key and every shot has to be intentional.
With film, I’m truly in the moment with you.
It has completely shifted my artistic style and creative process.
And that’s it. There’s no going back.
Is it cliche to say film is a lifestyle?
I'm a mild beach bum who seeks honest connections with honest people
I want you to have wedding photos that remind you of how things really felt, and that we all have a helluva good time along the way. I want every touchpoint to feel joyful!
You can say I’m fun loving and optimistic in that typical California girl way. I love rollerblading, snowboarding, live music and funky colorful home decor. I started carrying disposable cameras and polaroids around everywhere as a teen to freeze the good times. What started as spontaneous images of my friends and I at concerts or on a trip, turned into a passion for life’s best moments. It was that real human connection that pulled me heart-first into weddings.
It made sense - you’ll catch me romanticizing life and love over a dirty chai latte most days anyway. That, or I’m thrifting vintage gems or day-tripping it up the California coast.
I have a “live slow and have fun” take on work, play and travel.
What do you say? Are you ready to do this thing the fun way?

Meet Matt - assistant, backup videographer and my favorite person
He’s optimistic, he’s fun-loving, he’s Matt! This outgoing guy is someone that can talk to almost anyone, and he’s charmed his way across the world doing so.
He gets his creativity from his dad, who also had a rad eye behind the lens. His biggest passions are surfing, travel, and good food (both cooking and eating it) and that’s where he finds most of his creative inspiration.
Matt’s the super 8 video peanut butter to my film photo jam.
He’s also my better half (if you trust sandwich math), so if you think I’m pretty alright, you’ll love tossing him into this party mix!
