Dog mom, wedding photographer and lifestyle coach. I'll always be your hype woman!


Matt and Christy were married on May 4, 2019 at Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch in Ivanhoe, California.

This beautiful May wedding were the stuff of dreams! All of the details for this spring wedding were absolutely perfect; planned intentionally by Matt & Christy. The blush was the perfect compliment to the neutral hues and soft greens; the gold accents made everything look so clean and beautiful. Christy put so much time and effort into every detail, and it was apparent in every aspect of their wedding day.

One of the best parts as a photographer was shooting at Historic Seven Sycamores Ranch. This gorgeous, elegant ranch wedding venue located in Ivanhoe, CA is not only a great place to get married, but you can literally make it your own! And there are tons of great spots to photograph, which makes it easy to give my clients a variety of beautiful images from their big day. So of course we headed to the famous driveway at Historic Seven Sycamores to do their first look, family and bridal party portraits!

After the ceremony, we snuck out of cocktail hour for some more portraits at sunset! I always suggest making time for this when my couples plan their wedding timelines, because the soft, dreamy, golden, glowing sunlight is my favorite; and it’s one of the things my couples love most about my style of photography! The reception was a total blast, too! The garden at Historic Seven Sycamores is absolutely stunning and the weather was perfect.

Who doesn’t love some gorgeous symmetry in their photos?

It’s really important to me that my clients get photos that are intentional; this means capturing the details of their venues, decor and all the thought and care that went into planning their wedding day. So, I like to take care to create images that represent the same thought that went into planning such an important day. It’s achieved by focusing on the framing and composition of the images, the small details in the photos, and mindfully creating images that reflect the fine art style my clients want to frame and hang in their homes.
