Our story

I'm a day dreamer and a night thinker; i love telling stories!

I was born in Mexico and moved to Washington when I was nine years old. I love this country and its people, and am so grateful for the many opportunities I’ve been given throughout my life and continue to receive to this day.

For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for photography. I started doing photography for friends and family, and when my sister’s friend asked me to shoot her wedding, I had the time of my life. Everyone was so happy, and I was honored to have the chance to document the best day of someone’s life. It was then that I decided to pursue wedding photography as a profession.

I started my business in 2012, and it remains the best decision I’ve ever made. I strive to be the photographer that tells the story of your life through the images I capture. I want to be the photographer that builds strong relationships with my clients that blossom into years-long friendships, so I can be there with you to capture many of the other important milestones you will experience in your relationship.

In an era where there are so many wonderful photographers to choose from, I am honored to work with so many amazing clients, and sincerely thank you for your interest in my work and services.

 I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to travel many places for my work! Travel makes you more open-minded and knowledgeable of other people’s experiences. I have been to more than 15 countries and have had the opportunity of experiencing many cultures and communities.

I photographed my first wedding in Kauai, and after that I was known as a destination wedding photographer. It wasn’t long after that I photographed at Maui and Big Island, and since then I have been fortunate enough o have clients pay me to travel wherever they are having their special day.

Are you getting married outside of Washington state? Don’t hesitate to contact me, as I’m sure we can make something work that will fit your budget.



I love people, and so it is my mission to capture the spirit of every person who is in front of my camera. My images are organic, with a lot of movement and emotion. They are full of light and a bit of romance, and I aim to make all my clients feel and look comfortable in front of the camera, so they never feel too stiff or “posed.” This will make it easier for you to enjoy looking back at your photos years and decades from now and still love them, because they are real, honest moments!

My constant goal is to be a photographer that builds relationships with my clients that blossom into friendships. It is always so special to me to photograph other milestones for my couples long after their weddings, including anniversaries, children and so much more!

Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever.
