My mom gave me the love of art when I was a very young girl.  She would take me to the ballet in San Francisco and she was an amazing painter. Since I was a young girl I've been taking photographs.  I was also named the "family historian" by my dad.  About 10 years ago I started taking Photography Workshops in Venice, Italy, Provence, France and Cuba and fell in love with the art of photography. 

When I started my wedding photography business in 2007 it was a completely different type of photography than what I had previously been doing but what came alive in me is my creativity behind the lens but I really needed to find my style of wedding photography.  For me it's all about the emotion, the love, and the light.  Since 2007 l've shot around 1,400 wedding ceremonies and receptions in Santa Barbara, California and in Northern Italy and each wedding is as unique as each couple.  I absolutely love what I do. I consider myself blessed to have the Pacific Ocean as my office, the sand my floors, the mountains and sky the art on my walls.

That’s enough about me – I want to hear all about you! Please contact me if you have any questions, want to see if I'm available for your date, or just want to say hello. Don’t be shy – I would love to hear from you :)
