Random but fun facts about me

  • Originally from the Chicago area, my first job out of college was editing pictures for a real estate marketing company.  On the weekends, I would photograph for Chicago's Clubline magazine and got really good at approaching strangers and taking pictures in the dark.
  • Over the past decade, I have photographed 150+ weddings and 3650+ properties in Southern California.
  • I'm tall - 5'10" the last time I checked.
  • I'll eat anything from Taco Trucks to Tasting Menus.  A few of the best things I've ever eaten was truffle pasta in Florence, the Original #19 at Langer's Deli, and my boyfriend's Kung Pao Chicken.
  • I'm pretty lucky... like that one time I won a VitaMix at Whole Foods!
  • I have excellent color vision which makes me a great photo editor.  If you're curious what that means, click HERE to learn more and take a quick test to see how you measure up.
  • My favorite photographers include Mario Testino (fashion - love his work with color!), Jose Villa (pretty weddings on film), Rob Greer (mentor), Michael Kelly (architecture), Studio 1208 (destination weddings), and Jeff Newsom (weddings documented in a way you've probably never seen before).
  • In my (rare) free time I enjoy horseback riding, playing Zelda, listening to podcasts in the car (currently listening to Tony Robbins, Chase Jarvis Live Show, Ted Talks, This American Life, Stuff You Should Know), Netflix and chillin'.
