Rustic Whidbey Island Wedding |Whidbey Island Wedding Photographer

Surround yourself with love.

This wedding had it all….the most gracious, easy going and fun bride and groom, a gorgeous venue at the Whidbey Island Wayfarer, a stunning farmhouse dinner table that seated all guests together family style, stories, laughter, dancing and LOVE.  So. Much. Love!  I smile when I look at their wedding pictures because of all the moments that unfolded around the bride and groom.  In the background of so many pictures are their friends and family hugging, crying, laughing, feeling joyful and celebrating this amazing couple.  This wedding was gorgeous, intimate, joyful and so memorable.

Get to know me!

My journey in photography began in 2013. With two young boys at home and a full time job in corporate America, I craved more...more time to connect, more time to create and more time to share meaningful stories.


I bought my first camera and studied light and shadows for hours on end. My heart has been in my lense ever since!
