Welcome, and congratulations my friend!
If you’re reading this, you’re probably engaged (woot woot congrats!) or you're about to be (it's always good to start doing research early!) and you’re most likely looking for a California elopement or wedding photographer. You may even be on the verge of saying "I have no idea where to even start or how to even get organized for my wedding!".
Fear not my new friends, it really isn’t as bad as you think. I promise you, I've been in the wedding industry as a professional photographer for over 15 years. Planning a wedding can be fun... and it SHOULD be fun. By now you might have chosen your perfect wedding date and booked a venue, and that’s great – but even if you haven't and you have zero idea on when or where you want to get married to the love of your life, I’d love to chat with you.
If you’re new to my site and would like to get a feel for who I am and what my work is like, head on over to my blog (linked below) or check out recent images in the galleries section (also linked below). If you're here for pricing or already know you want to get into contact with me, go ahead and fill out the inquiry form to contact me directly!
The couples you see on my site are not models. These are real couples like you, who were most probably just as nervous to have their photos taken, but ultimately trusted me to capture epic moments in their lives that will be cherished for generations to come. And don't worry, I'm not one of those photographers that doesn't get behind the lens, I am often setting up self portrait sessions so that I can always fully understand your experience. I'm all about having a good time, laughing out loud, and giving guidance to my rad couples on an as needed bases.
As well as being a wildly fun and outgoing wedding photographer, I've also been fortunate enough to win some pretty rad photography awards both Nationally and Internationally. My images have been featured in well known online and printed publications too. Woot woot! Since being an "elder photographer", I have also had several amazing opportunities to speak on national stages, while teaching and training upcoming wedding professionals within the industry. While that's groovy and all, what makes me the proudest of my business are my rad clients!
At the end of the day, it's about getting you happily down the aisle. I'll be there to capture way you light up when you slip on your wedding dress or when you button up your suit jacket. I will be there the moment you see your love, standing there in all of their beauty. You'll have ever single magical moment captured, telling your perfect love story!
Heather made us feel comfortable and relaxed (photos can be stressful, for sure). She fulfilled our every request on where/what to shoot and in the end, we had more amazing wedding photos than we could have ever thought possible.
The pictures are beyond beautiful and our family and friends are still raving over them 7 months after the wedding. High quality photography was at the top of my wedding wish list and my expectations were exceeded.
As a wedding photographer for many years, I believe in capturing the true essence of your wedding day, to do so correctly, you'll need a full day of photography coverage. We are here to capture your entire wedding day story so that you and your partner won't have to worry about any of the details and moments being missed. Plus, I want you both to have the peace of mind of knowing you are in good hands that will result in you experiencing the true freedom to enjoy your special day.
Consistency is key, as is a team that jives creatively together. That's why the team on your wedding day, will consist of; Madison (2nd Photography) and myself Heather (Lead Photographer). While I focus on capturing every laugh, giggle, and the cute moments that you and your partner share between each other during your wedding day, Madison will focus on wedding day details as well as candid images through out the ceremony and reception. We will also capture behind the scenes footage that we will share on social media and tag you in (only if you want us to!)
So get those SnapChat wedding day filters ready and if you're into making TikTok or Reels, we go you there too!
I photograph weddings and elopements throughout the Central Coast of California and the State. I also have an up-to-date passport which has been begging to come out of my top dresser draw for months and is really looking to gather up some new fresh international stamps. Yep, you got it. I'm seriously way down to follow you and your partner around the world!
My wedding packages and collection are primarily dependent on your actual needs. They can be customized to include add-ons such as third photographer, wedding photo album, prints, or hair and makeup! I can also coordinate videography and/or drone photography, where permitted. I work with an amazing videographer in San Luis Obispo!
Starting rates are listed below, but be sure you reach out to me so that I can hook you up with a custom made elopement or wedding package that works well for you. I am a true believer that everyone deserves epic and rad wedding photos. Let's chat via zoom or meet up to discuss your vision, goals, and your overall desires for your wedding day.
I’ve recently teamed up with Wish Upon a Wedding, a non-profit granting weddings and vow renewals to couples facing serious illness or life-altering health circumstances. If you are getting married and have no way of hiring a photographer, please get in touch. I'd love to help any way I can.

With Covid really putting a massive wrench in so many couples wedding plans, I'm going with a "go with the flow" type of style. None of my couples paid a rescheduling fee during the "Covid Shuffle" game we all had to participate in. Together we will find somewhere (if you need my help, please reach out to me ASAP, I know several venue owners who are willing to work with my couples when needed). I've also implemented "Micro Wedding" packages for those couples who are looking to have a smaller all inclusive gathering for up to 10 people. Check out the blog for details. So let's all seize the day and bring spread some really good joy into what's left of this year!
