Travel Scenes: Southern California

In the spring of 2017, Garrett proposed to me at Sunset Cliffs. Since then, San Diego became a favorite destination for us, and we took the opportunity to travel back there this summer. We stayed at a small Airbnb in Ocean Beach, adventuring to the surrounding beaches and sites throughout our stay. I enjoyed photographing some of our favorite places, including Sunset Cliffs, Balboa Park and Coronado.

This is where I love sharing recent weddings and sessions, my travels, and life with my husband, and our three pets. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, I'm often enjoying the outdoors with Garrett, playing with our pups, or finding a new place to call home for the weekend. My passion is telling love stories, and I hope I get to fall in love with telling yours.

Let's meet!
