I am so SO glad you've made it here.

I can't even tell you how much it means to me to have you navigate to this page! Even if we don't get the chance to work together, just knowing you've considered my work means the world to me! (Honestly!)

As of August 1, 2020, I have availability for elopements and sessions only for the rest of the 2020 calendar. 2021, however, is still open to intimate weddings, elopements, and sessions.

Whether it's a huge celebration or elopement in our gorgeous mountains, a private ceremony on a rocky coast, or an intimate wedding on your family's land, I would LOVE to help document and preserve those memories! All wedding collections include an engagement session, a beautifully curated, online gallery of your images, and some surprises along the way!
If an elopement is exactly what you're looking for, we'll start with a base and customize according to the adventure you're ready to take!
 Loving your entire experience is incredibly important to me, so shoot me a hello, tell me a little about you, and know that I cannot wait to share this time with you!

Intimate Wedding Collections start at $3200; Wedding Collections start at $3800.
Elopement Collections start at $1500.
Sessions start at $400.

Once you become an Ocean + Ridge couple, there are lots of surprise ways I show my love in the future! Pssst...that means discounts. ;)

Now booking 2021 weddings and elopements! ask about the launch session special offer!

Praises from my people

For me, that first email from you means everything. When a couple is excited to gush over each other and share all the details, it's the first sign that we'll mesh. My couples know what they want in their photography and photographer, and they put each other first. Before the event, before the details, and before the trends. So, if you've found yourself connecting to me, my why, and my work, hit that submit button and expect to receive an excited email in return.

oh how I love some mail!
