Lover of all things eclectic, fun and memorable. I have a passion for photography and seeing things differently. Southern California based but have lived the NYC lifestyle, often in an airport lounge.
San Diego for local, LAX for international.
My travel style
I am a wedding photographer so I get to travel all over to capture couples stories in beautiful places! I travel solo most of the time so it inspires me to explore local coffee shops, wine bars and outdoor activities while I'm traveling. I have always been the planner/concierge of my friend group. I love having a general plan with must dos but leaving lots of room for going with the flow. I float somewhere between being poolside with a yummy cocktail, wandering the streets to find a hidden gem and lacing up my hiking boots to find the best views. I've always had a passion for seeing the world differently! Whether that be through solo traveling, a dream honeymoon, girls trip or experiencing a place like a local, I believe travel is the best investment you can make.

Two truths, one lie:
I lost my luggage and had to hike the Scottish Highlands in one pair of leggings and borrowed sneakers for a week.
I broke a rib before photographing a wedding in Belize.
I studied abroad in France and visited the Louvre every weekend.
