Chillass Photographer for the Uniquely Adventurous

Scottsdale and San Diego Wedding and Event Photography

No matter how big or small your wedding or event is, it’s the start of an exciting adventure for you, and that’s what makes it unique!

You might be getting married in a beautiful ballroom in downtown Phoenix or on the beach in San Diego; I’m happy to capture your day and your adventure, and there’s no doubt we’ll have a few laughs, too!


Your Story, Told by a Photographer With an Artist’s Heart and A Love for Family History

I approach a wedding day with an open heart. No matter how many I photograph, I’m honored that I am there to capture a day that will impact so many people’s lives. I’ve been photographing weddings since 2001 with more than 500 weddings in my portfolio.


I work in a mostly editorial style, looking for the hundreds of little stories that happen on a wedding day; your grandmother beaming during the vows, the look on your mom’s face when you dance with your dad.


I’m inspired by bold light and texture, and you’ll see much of that woven into my photos. Creating visually beautiful photos combined with emotion is exactly what I live and breathe for. It’s important to me to capture these moments and memories for you; I’m your historian for the day!

Scottsdale and San Diego Wedding and Event Photographer


Born and raised in San Diego but now residing in Phoenix, I’m lucky to have spent my life in two beautiful locations for photography.

Scottsdale and Phoenix Portrait Photographer

I offer family portraits, business headshots, high school senior portraits, portraits for personal branding, or dating profiles; anywhere, you need a great photo of yourself and the people you love! Portrait services are offered on location, in your home, or outdoors. Outdoor sessions are scheduled 1-2 hours before sunset for the best light.

Destination Wedding Photographer

My first destination wedding was at San Francisco City Hall. My favorite part of destination weddings is that I'm usually staying at the same hotel as the guests and get the chance to get to know them before the actual wedding day. Destination wedding photography has given me new adventures, introduced me to new and exciting places and cultures, and left me with lots of amazing memories! I've been honored to photograph destination weddings in San Francisco (City Hall), Rocky Point (Sonoran Sky), Portland (The Foundry at Oswego Lake), Palm Springs (Ingleside Inn), Carpinteria, Payson (Christopher Creek)

Please let me know what pronouns you prefer and any traditions that are important to you. I have photographed many different cultures, including Albanian, Catholic, Christian, Hindu, Hispanic, Islamic, Jewish, Korean, Lutheran, Muslim, Persian, Rwandan and Vietnamese.
