I'm a published Wedding Photographer serving San Diego, California. I truly believe that love should be the foundation to everything in life. I have learned while being a San Diego Wedding Photographer that there is nothing better or more meaningful than loving another person. 


I have been a Wedding Photographer for awhile now and I have always enjoyed shooting Weddings in San Diego. I can’t tell you how special it is to be able to spend a whole day capturing genuine love and all the details in between. It is truly amazing and I enjoy every part of creating stunning San Diego Photography. From the early getting ready with the bride to the grand exit, I wholeheartedly love being able to be there to witness true love and capture it all.


My photography style is described as warm, natural, and romantic. I am all about natural soft light and those gorgeous San Diego sunsets! Lighting is by far the most important aspect when creating and capturing beautiful San Diego Photography. I focus a lot on finding the right light all day long. It is my job to make sure when you look back at these memories, it is just as beautiful as you remember it. Focusing on lighting is key to how I create gorgeous Wedding Photography.


Planning a wedding is a lot of work and so much goes into creating your dream San Diego Wedding. I know the littlest detail matters and I love being able to capture it. From the beautiful décor, invitations, wedding attire, floral arrangements, and DIY projects to the emotion-filled interactions you might not get to see, it’s all captured through my lens and you'll be sure to have these memories forever.

1. What made you decide to become a San Diego Wedding Photographer?

 I have been shooting Weddings for about 7 years now and I have always enjoyed shooting in San Diego. When I was a little girl, my family and I would spend many weekends in San Diego for soccer tournaments and we always had a great time. It feels like home to me. In my opinion, there really is no place like San Diego. There is just so much natural beauty. I love the fresh air, great weather, the Spanish Style homes, awesome venues and of course the beaches! Each time I have shot in San Diego it's refreshing and the cities positive energy that you are surrounded with is unbelievable!

3. Why is lighting so important to you when creating San Diego Wedding Photography?

Over the years of being a San Diego Wedding Photographer, I have studied and challenged myself on learning the top aspects in Photography. They are all important but lighting is my top priority when I'm on the job. Light can be bright, dull, hard, soft, sunlit, cloudy, sunrise, and midday not including considering angle of light, contrast, and shadows accurately. This is so important in Wedding Photography. My style is natural and warm so I use natural soft light to create beautiful San Diego Wedding Photography. You will see in my work that there are no harsh shadows on the skin, the lighting is even and soft from head to toe. That's how I am able to make sure you look amazing when you look back on your wedding photos.
