I fell in love with photography when I was 14. The process of developing film; cracking open a film canister in total darkness and then unwinding it out of cold stainless steel holders with wet hands, examining negatives through window light- was absolute magic. Seeing print images emerge from chemical baths, the smell of fixer, all lit by a single red light bulb, was a wonderful way to spend lunch times during high school.

I have been studying/working/living/breathing photography for the past 15 years and am truly appreciative to be doing what I love. I received a BFA in documentary photography from the Academy of Art San Francisco, which has allowed me to connect with people from different walks of life all over the world.

I was recently awarded a distinction from the WPJA (the prestigious Wedding Photojournalist Association) and The Knot's editors named me as a 2011 and 2012 "Best of the Knot" vendor.

When I'm not photographing weddings, I make pictures for editorial news outlets, non-profit and advertising clients. Some of my clients include NBC Bay Area, The Huffington Post, Cisco Systems, Men's Warehouse and San Francisco Weekly.
