I originally trained as a painter, but became captivated by photography in my second year of art school. For years I worked as a product photographer during the day while moonlighting as a fine artist, creating abstract photographs full of color and light. After eloping in the desert, I was inspired to use my skills to help other couples create and commemorate exhilarating and authentic wedding experiences.

When I'm not photographing, I am reading speculative fiction, hiking until my legs ache, drinking truly excessive amounts of tea, and eating all of the tasty snacks I can find.
