My husband, Agustin described me this way, “"You are like a gooey salted-caramel-chocolate-chip cookie. The right amount of sweet, the right amount of spice, and you don't crumble under pressure."
My superpower is putting people at ease; whether that's behind the camera or on their elopement day solving problems calmly under pressure. I am passionate about building relationships with the people I work with. I want to know what makes you laugh until you cry and what bottle of red wine you buy yourself on a Friday night.
I’ll take that description any day.
Well, that is how my story began. When I was 12 years old I was in a near fatal car accident that left my right arm paralyzed. While this was extremely difficult to adjust to at first, I was determined to continue living life to the fullest; a life modified. As time went on and I continued to defeat the odds, I grew resilient in all my pursuits. So when I was told photography wasn’t possible, I truly viewed it as another challenge to overcome. Giving up was never an option.
I pushed through the impossible to make my dream come true, and that’s what fuels my work...Every. Single. Day.
Agustin and I have fallen in love with the PNW and call it home. We have fallen in love with everything this place has to offer - from the beautiful mountains to the ocean and the culture and food scene that come along with the city of Seattle. We are a big fan, come visit!
Home. I grew up in the mountains of Colorado. When I'm in the mountains, I'm in my element. A piece of my heart will always back in Colorado and I'm so grateful to have many opportunities to go back home and see friends and family!
I studied abroad in Ecuador when I was 17 and lived there for a year and fell in love with the country! I met Agustin during my time in Ecuador, so now it is exciting that we get to go back every year to see family and friends.
In college, I studied abroad in Spain and lived in the incredible city of Granada.
While studying abroad - I took a 10 day backpacking trip with friends and knew I always wanted to go back with Agustin! In May 2017 - we celebrated 6 years of marriage with a trip to Italy! We explored Sienna, Milan, Lake Como, Cinque Terre and Florence! One of the best trips we have ever taken!
Agustin and I lived in Ghana for a year and a half when Agustin's job relocated us to Accra, Ghana. During my time abroad, I worked with a non-profit that fought against human trafficking.
I recently spent 3 weeks in Nakuru, Kenya on a documentary photography project for a NGO called Hope for Life Kenya. This organization is addressing the needs and working with kids that have been impacted by HIV AIDS. I went with a team from Wheaton Bible Church and had the privilege of documenting the stories and amazing impact that Hope for Life is having in their community in Kenya.
During the year we lived in Africa, Agustin and I visited our dear friends who live in Pretoria, South Africa and went on a Safari in Kruger National Park. More recently, my friend Juli Watt and I visited Pretoria again and we couldn't resist exploring Cape Town! Cape Town is now on my list of top 5 favorite cities in the world.
During the Spring of 2014, Agustin and I went to India for the first time to witness our dear friends’ wedding! India is an amazing place! A photographer’s dream! The colors, the food, the culture! The 4 day wedding was an experience of a lifetime!
I was born in Hong Kong and lived there until I was six years old before moving back to the United States.
Cambodia was the first trip Agustin and I ever went on together. We explored the ruins of Siem Reap and were captivated by that buzzing city!
One of the cleanest and most efficient countries I have visited. Agustin went to high school in Singapore and lived there after college during the time we were dating, so I flew out to visit and explore his second home.
During my time studying abroad in Spain, I took a trip to Morocco and went on a camel excursion through the Sahara! Still to this day - it is one of my most magical memories while traveling!
I love visiting Mexico! Culture, history, beaches, warmth, and such great food! What's not to love!
Agustin + I and close friends went on a camping trip to Glacier National Park - and it was one of the most incredible adventures!
The land of exquisite views, amazing history and water that looks like its not even real!! This was one of our favorite recent trips to Europe and I hope to be back for an elopement!
Hands down - Iceland is one of Agustin's and my favorite adventures! The rugged terrain, the gorgeous views and kind people! We can't wait to go back!
