A little bit more about Est. 2009
Portraits that bring tears of joy; sessions filled with laughter and fun; connecting with people whether it is a brief moment in their lives or clients that turn into lasting friends. These are the moments I look back on and these moments are why I love being a photographer! We were created to connect with others and with God. Photography is my catalyst for connection.

I have always created art, but it was during my sophomore year at Biola University that I took my first photography class and loved it!  I could be out in the world, enjoying God's creation and meeting new people, all while creating art! Life after college can be an exciting and soul-searching adventure. It certainly was for me! I working as a staff photographer for a year and then a 2 year hiatus from photography during life's roller-coaster of events. In 2009, I completed an intense career training program at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography. I returned to Southern California, began my business that month and have been loving my photography career every day since.

Luke, my husband, is my second photographer and partner in everything! Luke and I met in 2004 at Biola University while both pursuing our passion for God and art. Though we were friends in college, we never dated. We went separate directions after graduation. Luke bean working with a high-end wedding photographer in Orange County for a few years until the other photographer moved to New York. In 2012, I called Luke to assist me with a wedding in Irvine. We became inseparable after that. First work, then dating, now marriage. Luke is quite specialized in photography, videography and graphic design. We compliment each other in many ways - one of the many reasons I married him. He is my steady support and calm. I plan ahead and he helps adjust when the plan changes. Our photographic styles compliment each other allowing us to capture the emotions and details while also stepping back to tell the grand artistic story.

Beyond the Resume…

Adventure and Jesus- it's what draws us together!

Luke and I met during a 3 week camping, hiking, exploring, science and art class trip through Baja California. I was the student and he was "teacher assistant". His dad was the head of the biology department at Biola and has been leading scientific research trips to Bahia De Los Angeles for over 40 years. Eventually they added the art department (yay for me!). In 2004, due to an illness, Luke had to take his dad's place in guiding the class. We quickly became friends, but as mentioned above, we didn't date for another 9 years!

We are passionate about discovering new things: restaurants, activities, places and more. Groupon is wonderful for this. We've learned salsa dancing, fencing, hot air balloons, and more. We have grand dreams of opening a fusion style restaurant, but love photography too much to focus on anything else.

When at home, we love working at fun boutique coffee shops and watching movies (Luke is a huge movie buff-ask him just about anything). We have discovered that we also enjoy cooking together and try variations of new recipes. While we try to be healthy overall, we are both powerless against chocolate chip cookies.

Cumulatively, we have been to over 30 countries! I was a student ambassador through People to People International. A program to help the youth of america develop an appreciation and understanding of other cultures. Luke has been on several missions trips around the world.

Most importantly, our faith is the foundations of our lives. We both grew up in solid christian homes and churches and both have a minor in biblical studies. While human and prone to mistakes, maintaining biblical integrity and the love of Christ in our lives and business is a high priority and a filter for all that we do.
