I know how to make you feel comfortable and help you have tons of fun. I'm pretty laid back and like to joke and be sarcastic, so if that's your vibe get in touch. I'm an American living part of the year in Long Beach and in Edinburgh with the love of my life and traveling all over the world to photograph love stories!

I’m a movie buff, obsessed with Hogwarts, Halloween and wonderfully bad Nick Cage movies. I quote Movies and TV shows like a second language. I'm passionate about human connection and storytelling. 

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a storyteller. I spent my youth at the cinema with my Dad every weekend. And when we weren't having a Noir marathon, we were people watching and playing that game where you get points for spotting Neo or Trinity in a crowd. But I digress. I was raised on the cinema and inspired by it, so I bring that magic and wonder into everything I photograph.

I’m just a romantic at heart and I cannot imagine doing anything else with my life! I'm lucky AF to be in an industry that is surrounded with so much love ... and cake, cake is really important too.

It's my favorite place in the whole world. I came for the Harry Potter but stayed because I fell in love with not only the city but a Scotsman. I draw inspiration from the friendly and outdoorsy culture, the rich history, the 400 year old architecture and the way the city comes alive in Spring!

Edinburgh

My home

Harry Potter marathons are my guilty pleasure! I usually watch them while I edit photos and every Christmas break! I've also been known to spend a full day just in Wizarding World at Universal Studios. Well that was before I visited Edinburgh and felt the magic of the city! 

Harry Potter

Marathons

I love movies in general. My favorite genres are Fantasy, Sci Fi, Noir and British + Italian Gangster movies. My favorite actor is Nicholas Cage. I'm still trying to decide if he is the worst or best actor. I'm in the middle of doing the Nick Cage Challenge - watching all of his lead roles - 116 movies and growing!

mad man or genius

When I'm at home, I use red wine as an excuse to put together an epic cheese board, featuring Edinburgh's own IJ Mellis! If I'm out on the town, you'll find me sipping Burboun or Cider.

I'm all about soaking up every ounce of fun and adventuring through life. Searching out the best Brunch and Taco spots. Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings Marathons. Epicly-Bad Nick Cage Movies. Early Morning Hikes. Sunsets. Nights filled with great friends and Pub Crawls. Exploring the world and making new friends along the way.

TRAVEL BUCKET LIST

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT is Iceland. I want to sleep in a glass igloo under the Northern Lights and swim in the Blue Lagoon. I have a pretty long travel list some others include: New Zealand with my father, wandering the rolling hills and Hobbit holes of The Lord of The Rings set. Watch a Shakespearean play in Verona. Ride a gondola in Venice. Kayak past the mountainous islands in Phuket, Thailand. And stay in a water bungalow in Turks and Caicos. I would love to capture your Wedding anywhere in the world!

My work is a collaboration, I want to tell your story and I do that best when I know more about you. I like to add a personal touch and do things differently. My couples tend to be madly in love, adventurous and even non traditional, choosing to do activities that feel more personal on their day. And I want to be there to document your story, whether that's morning golf descending into cart races or sneaking away to the hotel room to take a few intimate newlywed pics!  I want to give you photos that capture who you are and what your relationship feels. I am invested in you, your love, and your day.

Photographing you is like meeting you inside of your movie. I get a glimpse into your life and I'm honored to creatively capture your connection, your vibrance, your world. My style is inspired by film, its cinematc, colorful and contrasty, with natural skin tones and a touch of magic.

I believe that great photos come from building an awesome relationship with you. I want to capture real laughter and raw emotion, not cookie-cutter, overly posed wedding photos, because real love is about so much more than that.
