an Oregon wedding and senior photographer. I am based in Eugene, Oregon but I am available to travel worldwide. Oregon's wedding season is super short since it rains a lot so my goal is to travel and photograph weddings around the world.
I love fashion but I feel more comfortable in a t-shirt and ripped jeans. I love pearls because they make me feel classy and elegant...but don't let that fool you, I 'm neither! I'm just an average girl that wears a messy bun 90% of the time and loves to get her hands dirty in the garden. I love the Pacific Northwest and all the natural beauty it offers. I love waterfalls and going on nature hikes. I love to laugh, dance and sing. I can't carry a tune but who cares, I will still sing and then laugh at myself. I love to travel and immerse myself in the local culture and cuisine.

Guachinango, Jalisco , Mexico. This session made my heart melt! It was perfection! Cute couple in love….horses that cooperated (they can be a challenge sometimes making it hard to photograph), and spectacular natural light. Oscar and I planned this photo session before my trip to Mexico. Choosing the theme was easy. Trying to find a […]
There is something very special about seeing a young man in a Charro outfit. Every time I see one, it brings me joy and pride. You see the charro outfit represent who I am, my roots, my culture, my traditions and it’s fair to say even part of my character. The charro outfit is traditional of the Mexican culture and […]
