Hello! I'm a wedding and adventure elopement photographer based in Northern California + Colorado. I photographed my first wedding in 2014, and fell in love with documenting the small, in-between, special moments that make up wedding days.
I have a photojournalistic style- I strive to capture those honest, fleeting moments that you don't expect to see again. While I won't pose you stiffly, I'll guide you to bring out your authentic selves together. My goal is that when you look back on your photos you're transported back to the best day of your life, and remember it exactly as it was. There’s nothing more important to me than trust between us. This trust lets you be silly, loving, and honest with each other in front of my camera, with no judgments. One of the favorite parts of my job are the couples I get to meet, and building new friendships. It would be an absolute honor to tell your love story.
Who I am:
I love to be outside rock climbing, camping, and hiking, as much as possible. I find the most inspiration and solace when in nature. I grew up in Japan, off a US military base, and moved to Boulder, Colorado when I was 15. I absolutely love traveling and have been to 28 countries so far. Before photographing weddings I traveled around the world to film and photograph rock climbing. I lived in an RV camper for a year traveling around the United States and parts of Canada. You could say I have a sense of adventure. While I love traveling I also love being a homebody, having a good cocktail, and going dancing with friends.
