Vanlife !

I hate saying “I’m based out of _____”. Because, in all honesty, I’m currently based everywhere. I keep a place in Atlanta. Our airport is the best in the world, it flies direct and affordably to most locations. Though I’m grateful for my friends + family here, I find myself traveling for at least 2 weeks/month. This lifestyle has led me back towards incorporating more indeterminacy in my schedule, and finding the right way to do this with my dog (she hates flying).
Cue #Vanlife. Sure, it’s trendy, and I have lived out of both a Toyota T100, and a 14ft trailer before. I knew the Sprinter van wouldn’t be full-time. The joy of finding the right shell, and the right collaborator to bring these designs to life has been the big project of Spring !
My hopes are that by opening up my schedule and waiving my standard travel fees, I’ll be able to do more passion project shoots and connect with more adventurous couples along the way.

Hit me up, if you’d like to work together along this journey:
April- Asheville, NC // would love to photograph at Max Patch
May- Brooklyn, NY and San Francisco, CA
June- Morocco + Dominican Republic
July- Montauk, Amagansett + Hamptons, NY

and, finally, to fully appreciate the beauty of these vans, contact my friend Wyatt of Jedi Ships to custom build your dream vessel. He’s crafted mine specifically for surf life (changing station, board storage) and photographer’s needs (fold down desks with room for Wacom tablet, bolted in safe for gear). You will be so stoked !

Santa Barbara, California Courthouse Elopement

ELOPE ! Seriously. There is nothing quite like the energy of two folks madly in love deciding to just do the damn thing. Thankfully, these two let me (and my camera) come along for an hour of the ride.
Call me when y’all have a party ?

Venice Canals, California Engagement Session

I adore traveling back to California to capture couple's Engagement Sessions. Knowing that I'll be hiking, surfing, eating hella tacos + burritos and just aimlessly wandering the 1 all in the name of "location scouting" for photoshoots makes my heart skip a little beat. 

Olivia + Scott were SO easy to work with, and their sweet pup even joined us for a bit of the photoshoot. I can't wait to capture these two's wedding this autumn !
