Relaxed + Romantic documentary style photography. I capture things just as they are, to bring you back to that day and make you feel all the same feels.


This is a wedding I won’t soon forget. For a bunch of reasons. Here is one: Mexico.

Carson + Alex got engaged in Hawaii and when I got the inquiry for their wedding in my inbox, I did a happy dance, or peed a little. I’ll let you decide.

When couples decide to get married in a tropical place during the PNW’s coldest time of year, I’m just so happy. And when I get to take my husband as my second shooter, I’m even happier. So when Carson said she wanted to have a destination wedding in Mexico officially in winter, we were so pumped! I hadn’t heard of Acre Baja in Cabo San Lucas until Carson picked it as her wedding venue but after a Google and some Instagram stalking, I was completely in love. The boutique treehouse hotel rooms, stunning swimming pool and Burrito the adorable rescued donkey are just a few of the reasons.

I met Carson when I first started working with Bixby + Pine–afterall, she was one of them! It was especially great because I have photographed Carson during different stages of her life (friendships, business, engagement, the wedding, and most recently, her maternity photos!).

If you’re reading this and thinking about doing a destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, my advice is 100% go for it! If you’re considering Acre Baja as your venue… 200% go for it. If you want to take me with you as your wedding photographer… even better! 🙂

Take. Me. Back.
