Erin has been my roommate the past two years. She is a blast to be around. We love a lot of the same things and have bonded many nights over watching the Real Housewives and eating a donut or two. I loved doing this photoshoot because we are comfortable around each other, and it felt more like hanging out than doing a shoot. I absolutely love how these photos turned out.
Jess is an awesome girl who I originally met in my freshman dorm, Trinity. She is a beautiful girl with a big heart! She asked me to shoot her senior photos this past quarter and I was more than happy to do so. We explored Montana de Oro for her photoshoot and had a great time!
Montana is yet another friend that I met in Trinity and have stayed in contact with. She is super awesome and really fun to be around, and it was lots of fun taking her senior photos. We got up way too early on a Saturday morning to hike up the top of a hill and catch the sunrise. We then ventured around a cool office building nearby. I loved this photo shoot because it was fun to do, but also because we had so much variety in the location. And of course Montana was a breeze to photograph!
Mariah is an awesome friend and person. We met in Trinity freshman year, and she has been a really great friend these past four years. It was so fun to take her senior photos in Montana de Oro! It was insanely windy once we got to Spooner’s Cove, but we made it work and had fun while we were at it
I met Nichole during my time here at Cal Poly through various Cru functions. We’ve worked together on multiple events and she’s a great person. Very calm, kind, and sweet. For her senior photos we ran around downtown San Luis Obispo in the early morning, which is a fun time to explore. There were not many people out as the sun starts to rise over the surrounding mountains, so it was a nice and easy shoot.
Paul and Emily are so very special to me. I’ve known them since my freshman year at Cal Poly, and they are both incredible people. I absolutely love that I got to photograph them for their engagement. It was a fun time exploring a mountain in Morro Bay and the beautiful arboretum at Cal Poly.
My brother Austin and his fiancée Alex asked me to do their engagement photos when I came home for my Christmas break. I was BEYOND excited to take these photos. They are both artists, and I was so lucky and blessed to be able to do their photos. They really wanted to find some cool sand dunes to shoot the photos at, so we drove 3 hours down south to sand dunes that were east of San Diego. We spent a morning running amongst the dunes taking the pictures. It was an awesome and unique shoot. While the lighting wasn’t perfect, the backdrop was and I am so happy with how these photos turned out. We then took the rest of the day exploring, traveling to Salvation Mountain, the Salton Sea, and Palm Springs for a late lunch and some delicious shakes.
Allie was one of my roommates sophomore year and she is so special to me. She has a great sense of humor and we share a love of all things Parks and Rec and Nicholas Sparks. She has a beautiful soul and I am so lucky I got to share my second year at Cal Poly with her. She graduated last quarter and asked me to do a small shoot for a few senior photos. She is a beautiful model and I love these photos.
Ashley Lekkerkerk is a wonderful girl in my bible study that I lead, and I’ve also discipled her for the past year. She is an awesome, positive, beautiful soul, and I was so stoked to be asked to do family photos for her when her parents and siblings came into town. We hit up Avila Beach to take the photos. Her younger brother and sister were sassy and hilarious, and we all spent a wonderful afternoon at the beach.
Rachael is a friend of mine that I met originally through my job at Starbucks but grew closer to when she joined our community group. She is a funny, intelligent, wise person, and an absolutely wonderful model. We had a great time venturing around SLO last November for her senior pictures!
