Rebecca, she/her

I love shooting offbeat weddings and unique couples. Every wedding takes me back to my own backyard wedding -- the emotions, the laughter, the joy. I love capturing the colors, the light, and dynamic shadows; the beautiful prism that persists despite it all! 

What I love most about photography is its ability to crystalize moments as they really are; the emotional, candid moments; the un-noticed, quiet things that happened nonetheless... and I love to capture these slices of life with love and honesty.

These are a few of my favorite things:  womanism, Agnes Varda, John Cassavetes, Hayao Miyazaki, "Murder She Wrote," "Columbo" (and Peter Falk!), Antonín Dvořák, Nina Simone, "The Artist's Way," James Baldwin, animals (especially my cat), Los Bros Hernandez, bibimbap, homemade ice cream, fresh pasta with fresh cheese, dim sum carts, musicals (ask me about Sondheim, I dare you).

O, she/they

As an artist, I’ve made it my duty to reflect the way we celebrate marriage today. I am most interested in the ways in which we subvert, disrupt, and ultimately, reclaim what marriage can be for each and everyone of us.

I am thrilled to be able to document vanguards like you who are celebrating community and inclusion as primary to what it is to be in love and to marry in these times.

These are a few of my favorite things: womanism, black American vernacular, craft beer, dogs (my Scottie-Boxer pup, Zooey, being my favorite), reading, "The Artist's Way," Soren Kierkegaard, drinking rye whiskey, neat, collecting cookbooks; playing video games, Sailor Moon, reading Tarot, mountain hikes, r&b + hip hop (golden age!), BEYONCE, french press coffee, new orleans, la & tokyo, jp.
