  • Rancho Penasquitos Adventure Session

  • This couple here has stolen my heart. I dream of photographing couples like this. Couple's who aren't afraid to hike six miles to their location because it will be SO WORTH IT. ( We hiked 3 miles in and 3 miles out to get to this beyond gorgeous location).  A couple that shares my love of adventure [...]
  • Promise Not To Judge Me?

  • I'm excited to share with you a piece of my heart today; something that is very near and dear to me. But first, I need to ask that you don't judge me! I'm a photographer. But what guess? That hasn't always been the case. I had my days of point and shoot cameras and only using the automatic functions[...]
  • San Diego Love Session

  • Have you been to San Diego before? If not, go look at flights right now! No really...right. now. Okay I might be biased, but in my humble opinion, San Diego is one of the greatest places you could live. The other day I was at a networking group and we were going around the circle saying our name, wh[...]
  • Road Trip Essentials

  • In the past couple years, I have done my fair share of road trips. Last year alone we logged 2,711 miles driving from the Atlantic to the Pacific. As if that wasn't enough, we drove almost the entire West Coast last August. Bucket list: CHECK! I love driving because there is no ticket telling you wh[...]
  • Oklahoma City

  • I went to Oklahoma City last week to visit my dearest friend and cousin and I couldn't leave without taking a few maternity pictures of her. Mostly because I wanted her to see how we all see her; confident, strong, gorgeous and graceful. She has not had the easiest pregnancy. She spent the first two[...]
  • Joshua Tree Surprise Proposal

  • Nick has been planning his proposal to his college girlfriend, Amy for quite some time. It had to be perfect and in order for that to happen, he wanted it to be a surprise. He wanted to propose at Joshua Tree National Park (never heard of it? Just know, it's gorgeous) but thought if he planned a[...]
  • Your Wedding Dress Shopping Q's Answered

  • Picking out your wedding dress is a HUGE decision. It is one of the first “this is real” moments after becoming engaged. What look do I want? What do you mean there are different shades of white? How early do I need to start shopping?! BREATHE. I’ve got you covered! I’m stoked to introduce you all t[...]
  • I love you SNOW much

  • Ringing in the New Year is all about fresh starts, new beginnings and positive vibes. It’s such an electric time! The thought of the future and what could be lets your mind wander toward the possibilities. I truly can’t think of a better way to start the New Year than by getting married! Or for me, [...]
  • You Make Me Hoppy

  • Dan and Tatia are the bomb (are people still saying that?) We took their engagement pictures at Indeed Brewing Company in North Minneapolis as they sipped on stout. That's right, at Joey Photo you get to drink beer while having your pictures taken and look good while doing it! No one said engagment [...]
  • Mikayla

  • I just love a good "small world" story! Mikayla's mom, Andrea, was at a wedding I photographed last summer and decided to contact me about senior pictures. Nothing crazy there. During our emails, I kept thinking that their last name sounded so familiar, but I couldn't place it. The day of pictures, [...]
  • Meet Alex

  • My main squeeze, my other half, the man I do life with--my husband :) He's really the best. I met him in college, at a townie bar (sorry family members that I told we met through mutual friends, that was lie) I never in a million years thought I would meet my husband in a bar. I thought for sure I w[...]
