As a native of the mountains, cliffs, and beaches of California, exploring my homestate to tell love stories feels like living a dream I never knew I had. When I was young, I loved snapping photos and digging through old family albums. My path didn’t lead straight to photography, though. In fact, I actually worked as a chemist for a little while! But there was always something captivating to me about the idea of fleeting moments frozen in time. Genuine connection and generous spirits are what light me up (I know, I know...I’m a total enneagram two). So, I eventually took the leap and said so long to chemistry of one kind to start chasing another kind. The chemistry between a couple in love.
Was I scared? Um...I was terrified! But something I’ve learned over the last few years is that anything worth doing should scare you at least a little. So, today, in my trademark “Liz means business” ponytail, I document small weddings and elopements in my captivating style. Helping couples find unique ways to tell their stories is such a fun challenge. And sure, sometimes we get a little muddy along the way! But the dirt just adds character, right? It’s proof that we really lived every moment to the fullest.
When I’m not kickin’ it with couples or editing away on my latest gallery, you can probably catch me planning a spontaneous trip with friends, hosting an impromptu dinner with a new recipe I just discovered, or having a tickle fest with my kids while a She & Him album plays in the background. We love to try new things, laugh ‘til we cry, and enjoy every moment of life together. And that’s the vibe I hope to bring as your wedding or elopement photographer: the simple joy that comes from being fully alive. So, let’s think outside the box, go on an adventure, and tell your story!
Liz has a way of making you feel so comfortable that you forget that you’re "posing" for some of the most important pictures that you’ll ever take. She has an amazing ability to capture personalities through her pictures.
SOMETHING THAT ALWAYS LOOKS GOOD ON CAMERA

"pretend i'm not here"
FAVORITE LOCATION TO PHOTOGRAPH
I ALWAYS CRY
a place that is meaningful to you
Let’s get one thing straight: around here, we believe the only people who know how your wedding day should look are you and your fiancé. If a tradition doesn’t serve you, get it outta here! If the standard way of doing things doesn’t fit your soul quite right, let’s invent something new! Because when it comes to telling your love story, the most important thing is to make sure it feels like your story. Everything I do as your photographer will be in service of that goal. And when you receive your final gallery, my hope is that you see your personalities painted all over every frame.
