A Bay Area Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer based in Pleasant Hill, California. I am a wife, human and fur mom, and a Japanese food enthusiast. I photograph people who are looking for adventure and who are into raw emotions. Candid moments are the best ones. I am beyond grateful to have worked with people who want those raw, authentic, fun moments captured.

Some fun facts: I'm a wannabe interior designer who loves to explore and seeing new places. I got engaged at Oracle Arena during a Warriors game! #GODUBS. When I am not photographing couples or families, my way of recharging is watching re-runs of FRIENDS whilst snuggling on the couch with my husband, Kenton, and our babies, Kelly and Finn. I love hiking and gardening, and of course, looking for local boba shops to try!

Oh, and I have a dream of photographing couples in epic places. I also hope to photograph couples in every country!
