Behind the Lens!

Joyful Beginnings

My first photographic memory involved me as a child with my plastic pink film camera hanging out of a second story window to take pictures of icicles. This is when I discovered a passion for this art form and it led me to take photography classes in high school. I chose my senior project to be a trip to Morocco with professional photographers, who gave me mentorship and guidance in my field of interest. Thivs trip opened my eyes to a career in photography and led me to pursue a college education in this subject. I studied at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara and graduated in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in portraiture. 

 

For the Joy of Weddings

I love seeing how unique each wedding is and being able to capture the joy and love a wedding day brings. Your laughter and tears, your carefully planned details, your family and friends....all of these little moments come together to create your story. It’s my job to tell that story, showing the beginning, middle, and end to one of the most important days in your life. My style is timeless yet fresh, classic yet whimsical. I am most inspired by movement, laughter, and love. My goal is to photograph just the right combination of photojournalism and posed portraits, so that in the end, you have an exquisite collection of images that will help you relive your story for years to come.

 

A little bit more about me

After being apart of so many beautiful weddings, I recently had my own amazing wedding. In August 2016, I married the love of my life. Right after getting married, my husband Jeremy Joy and I live in Brentwood, CA with our daughter and 3 huskies.

                I love traveling and I am constantly planning our next epic trip. I like to go snowboarding, wakeboarding, scuba diving, hiking, and having BBQ’s in the summer with friends and family, or just cuddling up by the fire with a glass of wine. I laugh, love and have fun through the joy of life.
