Meet Elizabeth

I’m a pragmatic optimist. I believe we are who we say we are and I am compassionate and committed. Your wedding day should truly be about you two above all else, but I understand that so many people impact your lives and their presence deserves considered attention. The family and friends that surround you help shape who you are and I confidently believe the value of their images can become your most treasured possessions.

I started my photography business in 2007, along with having a full-time job and being a full-time college student. A year later I graduated with my bachelor’s degree, and another year after that I left my desk job. I’ve been working solely as a photographer ever since.

Hundreds of couples have trusted me to capture their wedding days, and I am endlessly honored to create images that merely show a glimpse into their worlds.

When I’m not photographing weddings, I’m probably on an adventure with my partner, Wayne exploring the world, paragliding, or spending time with our dogs, Squishy and Xander going on hikes or walks at the beach. I also stay active by teaching cycle classes at my local gym. And sometimes I’ll just be at home relaxing with a book, or binge-watching reruns of The Office, Schitt’s Creek, or some of my favorite Rom-Coms.

Voted Top 3 Best Wedding Photographer in Santa Barbara, Malibu, & Ventura by California Wedding Day.

An Homage to My Grandmother

I was named after 2 queens, and my grandma was the only person who would regularly mention the connection to me. She was such an amazing, strong, and fiercely loving woman who always made me feel special.
My crown logo is a reminder of her.

Laughter is the best medicine. Early in life, I found that joking about something sad helped me to cope. I’d be inconsolable without humor.

Equality is immensely important to me.I believe everyone is entitled to love and their memories deserve to be captured in the most beautiful and authentic way.

Nature is my religion. The Swiss Alps, waterfalls in Iceland, California’s redwoods, The NaPali Coast – Are some of the places I find peace and inspiration.

I love animals, sometimes more than people. If animals got married and chose me as their wedding photographer, my life would be even fuller.
