Ever since I was a child I had an imaginative mind. I always loved telling stories, and I captured everything that I saw with my eyes in my mind. Those images helped create the backdrop for my stories and forever has lasted in my memories. This in turn led me to pursue a degree in Film and Photography, and thus my passion for capturing life’s moments with a camera was born 📷 🎥

I’ve been a photographer and filmmaker ever since 2002. After college I became a volunteer missionary worker and traveled around the states for the next 8 years. Because of my travels, I was able to expand on my photography and filmmaking by having the opportunity to see various parts of the world and capturing different aspects of life. During my journey I started shooting weddings and portraits in 2006 and ever since then I fell in love with them. From the beautiful marriage ceremonies, to the portrait session; I love everything about the big day! It’s hectic but seeing the couples smile and laugh, as they look back through photos and films always makes me proud to be a big part of their wedding 😊

I worked for different media companies such as CNN and Fox News, but my passion always came from capturing and telling stories on those wedding days. I decided to go full time and started my own photography and film production company in 2007. Ever since then, I’ve studied and taken classes from some of the best wedding photographers in the business such as Cliff Mautner and Susan Stripling. They helped me find my style, and all these professional teachings coupled with my degree, reflect in the quality of my work!

I only not just shoot weddings, but I am also a commercial, fashion, and beauty photographer, working with companies such as Maybelline and Drew Barrymore’s FLOWER Beauty. I try to combine my expertise in these other forms of photography into the weddings and portraits I shoot. I would love to capture your wedding or your portraits, and have it last forever in pictures and film, but not only that, but in your memories!
