I transitioned from a unit stills/behind the scenes photographer on music video and movie sets to a lifestyle and wedding photographer just over 3 years ago. It felt so much more authentic to me, coming from a place deep within my heart, and I haven't looked back since. 

As a recent newlywed (in June 2018!) I feel so much more connected to the sacredness of marriage and weddings than I ever did before. The way in which love and being loved has transformed my life can't be described in words - which is why immortalizing those precious moments is so important to me. Sometimes words can't do justice to the relationship between two people in love. Above all, I am here to tell your story in its beautiful, organic unfolding. I see every image as a poem; timeless and magical; a portal into your shared love. 

If a laid-back, natural, soul-full, organic and soft aesthetic calls to you, let's connect & create something beautiful together.

I'm currently based just south of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii and would love to photograph your beautiful Hawaiian destination elopements & weddings!

Weddings are a totally unique expression of every couple, and I love them for exactly that reason! Your wedding day is such a special day - a day you, your family and friends celebrate this new chapter in your lives together. You'll probably find me wiping away some tears throughout the day, too... to be a part of such an amazing day for the two of you is an honour and blessing!
