I have always loved photography, but I fell into photographing weddings by accident because a friend asked me for a favor. It turned out that my first wedding opened my eyes to the magic and wonder of each wedding day. Now, 20 years later, I can’t imagine doing anything else with my life. Photographing weddings, and then the families that sprout out of those connections is an honor that brings me heart-bursting joy. 


I grew up near the beach in Southern California and now feel fortunate to live in Wine Country, one of the most beautiful places in Northern California. 


Every morning there’s a huge cup of coffee in my hands, and every day, the love of my life for the past 24 years, Graham, our beautiful son Zeke and our adorable Beagle Carter complete my joy.  My house is filled with music, Greek food, and pure happiness. 

ABOUT ME

MY LETTER TO YOU

This is my 20th year as a wedding photographer! I don’t think it’s possible for me to love my job any more. Photographing weddings brings me to tears, brings me to my knees and makes my heart burst wide open, every time.  

Connecting with you is my key to making authentic images that I hope will bring you to your knees too.

 

I want to know who you are, what makes you tick, the meaning of the charm hanging off your bouquet, the story behind your grandmother’s handkerchief.

I want to know what brought the two of you together, how the proposal took place, your favorite thing about one another.

 

These are the glimpses into your soul that allow me to make photographs that speak directly to your heart.

 

On your wedding day, you will spend more time with your photographer than just about anyone else. And because we have connected, I can finesse my pace, tone, and style to fit into your celebration.

No two weddings are alike and no two couples are alike, so it is important for me to treat your wedding with the utmost care.

 

I want you to feel taken care of, every minute of your day.  

SK
