Wrapping up Katie + Jordan’s beautiful gallery this week (plus many, many others). These two were married on what may have been the most perfect fall day in Carmel Valley, surrounded by family and friends from all over the country (and across the globe!). I loved all of the surprise musical acts throughout the day, plus the magical al fresco dinner by candlelight that lasted all throughout the evening. There’ve been so many insane moments from this year to highlight, I just need to glue myself to my editing chair until that all happens!! 🥴 Planning and design by @ruby.and.rose, floral design by @paeonina, hair and makeup by @dreamcatcherartistry, food and beverages by @wylderspace, linens by @latavolalinen, rentals by @chiceventrentals, paper goods by @thebrightlinestudio, photographed onsite at @holmanranch with @fujifilm_profilm on my #Contax645 and processed by @photovisionprints. Special thanks to the team @breannamckendrickphoto @monicalamphoto for bringing the magic AND the in-n-out burgers 🤤 couldn’t have done any of it without y’all ♥️
Trying to make images that make me want to step closer and run away all at the same time. Somehow, in my head, that means something. Planning and design by @amandawatsondesigns, floral design by @southernposies, dress by @joliennecollection, hair and makeup by @vivantleivida, photographed at @longlivefilmworkshop on @fujifilm_profilm on my #Contax645 and processed by @indiefilmlab.
Drifting, daydream skies, but what really draws me in are the little patches of darkness in the corners. I love mystery. I love the challenge of thinking deeper, feeling harder. There’s a total allure in wanting to see beyond the surface and I’m learning to chase that feeling down in my photographs. Yesterday, I taught a 1:1 mentorship with @vanja.fotography that really got me thinking about what motivates each of us as storytellers. We occupy the same world, but walk tremendously different paths. There’s something so incredible about how our own individual life experiences shape the way we storytell. Personal style can be cultivated and practiced. But it’s often already inherently present because of the sum of histories we carry inside us. It’s a full weekend of multiple weddings, engagements, and portrait sessions. I’m thrilled to be out there making photos. Let’s see more of this world ✨ image of the skies over Columbiana, Alabama, where a shocking amount of my heart now resides. Photographed on @fujifilm_profilm and processed by @indiefilmlab.
The privilege of being yours. From Mai and Rico’s windy, windy pre-wedding session in San Francisco 🌬 Photographed with my @Sony A7iii and edited with @c1ickmatch.

These two are getting married!! I’m thrilled to celebrate Amy and Alec up in the Tennessee mountains this weekend. Throwback to the time we scaled mountains together on the opposite coast, over in Yosemite National Park. Knowing these two through our old Greek community really helped cement this engagement session as one of my all-time favorites. Actually, the first wedding I ever photographed was a sorority sister’s! I can’t wait to hug all my college girls again.. and *maybe* sing our chapter song too (in a very pitchy, off-key, but supremely happy way). Photographed on @fujifilm_profilm with my #Contax645 and processed by @photovisionprints.
Heading back to the South for the long weekend and I’m not coming home till I’ve had at least six home cooked meals with my mom✌🏻see y’all on the other side. Image from a recent @holmanranch wedding, planning and design by @ruby.and.rose, photographed on @kodak Portra 800 with a #Contax645.
I tend to get this shot a lot and it’s one of my absolute favorites to do. We always photograph the bridal party as a group in its entirety, but afterwards, I like to carve out a tighter frame of just the couple, surrounded by all their loved ones in the middle of total, boundless celebration. From Katie and Albert’s wedding. Planning and out-of-this-world design by @ruby.and.rose, hair and makeup by @aprilfosterbridal, floral design by @sharlaflockdesigns, bridal dress by @moniquelhuillier, bridal shoes by @manoloblahnikhq, photographed onsite at @juliamorganballroom with my @sony A7iii and edited with @c1ickmatch. Special thanks to my teammates @catherine_leanne @shannonmaybrown for bringing the light (literally) on this one 💫
