it’s important we get to know each other to make sure we’re a good fit cause trust me, it matters.
I’ll go first.
Whether this is your first time hiring a photographer or not, I think it's important you know what you’re getting into because you deserve the experience of yours dreams and more, which is what I want to give you.
Photographing + filming people I love in the places they love wherever that may be is what lights up my soul. There’s nothing more important to me than my people, the great outdoors, and creating something meaningful for others.
Whether you choose to: have a traditional intimate wedding ceremony, explore some mountain tops while the sun dips behind the peaks, camp underneath the Milky Way, take a road trip across your home state, cannoneer through a slot canyon in the desert, dirt-bike through the middle of nowhere to find some hot springs, hope in your pickup truck and drive down a bumpy road as the hills turn gold, make waffles in your home and take a walk through your neighborhood, love on your pups, whatever your adventure is I want to document the feelings of it all.
When I'm not photographing beautiful people I’m actively exploring new places and meeting new faces. Getting out in nature is where I feel most alive, but I also enjoy eating vegan baked treats and sipping on an iced matcha from Fox + Fawn Bakehouse in my hometown of Benicia, California.
I'm a self-proclaimed professional speed walker and I travel through life with my PIC: partner-in-creativity, Austen. We take a lot of photos, but rarely get one together. Austen and I film intimate weddings + elopements and travel internationally producing marketing, commercial, and documentary films for companies.
My hair wildly ruins 70% of Austen's photos and you can almost always find me bundled up in cozy clothes. Comfort > cute always. Austen thinks coffee should be a major food group and created the most insane, never-ending bucket list for us to accomplish.
This is our life we plan on living it adventurously and doing some good along the way because you know...YOLO.
“Storytelling is my passion. The art of capturing human connection brings me the utmost joy.”
WE'RE BIG ON ACHIEVING DREAMS.
With a magnetic pull to see and experience the world Austen and I lead with our hearts producing content along the way. We are intensely creative with a desire to make the world a better place, which is why we've dedicated our life to making dreams happen—ours and those around us. Both passionate about storytelling, treasure mapping, and building genuine relationships, yet we have different strengths.
I am an expert researcher, fantastic communicator, and an organized do-er. Writing and graphic design are my strengths. For fun I write about my adventure + wellness experiences to help you map out your journey. Fitness is also an area I am an expert in, so I offer coaching services to help you achieve your health goals.
Austen dreams big, has insanely strong discipline, and meticulous attention to detail, which helps him produce heartstring-pulling films. To see some of his other work click here. But don't let all this working fool you—we are the biggest goofballs and are always looking to make new friends who accept our silliness.
Do we sound like a good fit?

PHOTOS WITH FEELINGS
You know that feeling when you stumble upon a photo of your parents when they were younger? These are photos my dad found and sent to me the other day. The idea that someone took the time to intentionally capture these moments saving the stories behind them in history forever brings warmth to my heart. This is what fuels my purpose for what I do.
Behind every photo there is a feeling and a memory and I want to be there to intentionally capture it.

“We chose Austen to be out wedding videographer and we couldn't be happier with the results! Austen was quickly responsive to different questions we had, and he was able to easily bring our vision for our wedding video to life. Compared to other wedding videographers we considered, he didn't increase the price for every little thing we wanted, which I really appreciated. He was always very fair and super helpful, and it felt like he really cared about the video being good. I would highly recommend him!”
