palm springs wedding photographer

Did you know that I grew up in Palm Springs, California? Over the years, I have had the honor to photograph weddings in and around my hometown and Southern California. Even though I currently live in Arizona, I am out in the Coachella Valley as much as humanly possible! 

With that said, I have special pricing just for my couples looking to work with me as their Palm Springs wedding photographer (and for surrounding areas!).

serving palm springs, La Quinta, joshua tree and all over southern california.

I am so excited to offer wedding photography in Palm Springs to incredible couples.

Don't worry... I've got you, boo!

your best day ever?

What's the difference between hiring me and someone else?

I have been a Palm Springs wedding photographer since 2010 (Randy has been by my side shooting as my primary second shooter since 2013) having photographed nearly 200 weddings from the rooftops of Los Angeles to the streets of New York City, at 14,000 feet in the Colorado Rockies and the beaches of the Emerald Coast of Florida. Sunrise, mid-day, afternoon or night. Winter or Summer. Pouring rain, dumping snow, 119 degrees with no shade ... when I say I have done it all - I mean it!

When you're hiring me, you're not just getting someone who takes great photos, but you're getting someone who will walk with you through the entire wedding process from start to finish!

Basically, I will be your wedding day BFF ... and not to get all corny, but, to quote our Friends Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe ... 

I know it's a lot to take in, so if you have questions, just let me know. Take a look around here on our Wedding Guide - you'll be able to find information about my packages, how you can customize them to fit your budget, and read testimonials from past couples!

Once again, congratulations on your engagement and thank you so much for the honor of reaching out to me about being your Wisconsin wedding photographer.

I'll be there for youuuuu ...

How I Make Your Wedding Into Treasured Memories

With over 12 years of wedding photography experience, something that I have learned over the years is how unique every wedding is. There is no one-size-fits-all cookie cutter wedding, and your special day deserves individualized attention. Every couple has different wants and needs, and together we'll create a customized collection for your perfect wedding day in Palm Springs.

We'll chat on the phone so we can go over your wants, needs and vision.

Step one: A Phone Date

This is where my enneagram 2w3 comes into play: it's very, very important to me that I'm not just another wedding vendor for my couples. I want you to feel 100% comfortable with me, welcoming me into your world. In order to make sure you have the best, most least-stressful day possible, you will receive customized planning for your wedding to ensure that your day reflects your vision, your relationship and the most exciting day of your lives (so far!). This also includes spending time together for your engagement session!          

What's better than being just another vendor? Becoming your trusted friend.

Step two: Build Our Friendship

This is the moment we have both been waiting for: your wedding day!! We have done so much planning and prep work for today, and it is my goal for you to live in each moment, soaking up the love and energy all while documenting and telling the story with my camera. And heck yeah, I'll see you on the dance floor!

I'll be your wedding day BFF who happens to also take some bad-ass photos.

Step three: The Best Day Ever

Within 48 hours of your wedding, you will receive a small preview gallery so you immediately have photos to share on social media, and even order your thank you cards. 6-8 weeks later, you'll receive your full gallery and together we will create your first heirloom. This will be the album your future children and grandchildren will treasure!

When the day is over, I want you to hold your memories in your hands.

Step Four: Your First Heirloom

This is what I want!

Friendship and Experience you can Trust

Do you have backup photographers "Just in case"?

Yes! I have a trusted list of amazing photographers who would pinch-hit for me just as readily as I would for them. Community over competition, friends!

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are engagement sessions so important?

Not only do I think engagement sessions are fun for couples and a great way to share the excitement of your upcoming wedding with friends and family, but I also feel like it's a vital part of the wedding process. Why? Because it allows us to hang out, get to know each other and learn a lot of important need-to-know info before the wedding!

🏳️‍🌈 DO I SUPPORT AND PHOTOGRAPH LGBTQ COUPLES?

AbsoFREAKINGlutely. Since living all over the US, my opportunity to photograph LGBTQ couples has not been as much as it was when we lived in Palm Springs or Colorado in the past, so you might not see it recently on my blog, but I'd love to invite you to check my previous LGBT blog posts by clicking here.  🏳️‍🌈

Are high resolution digital files included? Printing rights?

I want you guys to print your images, make albums and give them as gifts. You will receive all of the retouched, high-resolution digital images with printing rights and you'll also receive an online gallery where you can download your images, purchase prints and share.

These are priceless memories that we will be able to display for years to come. Highly highly recommend, you won’t find a better photographer. Her attention to details, eye for styling, and fun personality make for a priceless experience."
