I'm a Southern California based elopement and intimate wedding photographer.
My heart is for you to feel valued and cared for while working with me. Getting married or celebrating your love is such a big deal. I don't take the honor of being the one to document it all for you lightly. With me as your photographer, I'll create a not-awkward, safe environment so that you can feel at ease in front of the camera and walk away with a super fun experience!
By truly devoting myself to building a genuine friendship with you and your boo, I'm able to catch the tiny moments that might be missed by others but mean the world to YOU.
I can't wait to hear all about your epic love story and ensure it can be told and retold forever.
You want your wedding day YOUR way. I'm all for couples who want to ditch stuffy, impersonal tradition and do things their way. No rules, no expectations to meet. Your wedding should reflect YOU.
Stiff, awkward, and cheesy poses are NOT your jam. You want fun, authentic, candid photos that look and feel like yourselves (but like in a way where you look so good you wonder if maybe you SHOULD try modeling.)
When I first got their inquiry and they mentioned an airstream, their dog, malibu and their sweet intimate plans for their wedding day I knew I had to be a part of it. Michael and I had the absolute best day laughing and crying with them. We felt so honored to be part of their beautiful day.
The best part about being a Joshua Tree elopement photographer is the fact that I get to hang out with some really amazing couples. Couples who want to create an intentional, intimate wedding day free from tradition. Elopement days are always full of so many beautiful moments. Moments free from stress or pressure.
"I can't recommend them enough! Hannah exceeded our expectations in terms of quality and quantity of photos. My wife and I aren't the best in front of the lens and honestly, we can be incredibly awkward. Hannah and Michael were able to guide us .
They are also some of the kindest people and had a way of making you feel like you’re doing something right when posing for photos! My worries washed away immediately upon meeting them. They're incredibly genuine and easy to talk to.
"She was so incredibly kind and patient with us. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Hannah was so timely with her responses and always was one step ahead. Most importantly she was punctual and professional while still being fun loving! Her photographs were so beautiful. We are so grateful to have been able to work with Hannah, and are looking for any reason to schedule her again soon!"
"We can not thank Hannah and Michael enough for being a part of our special day. We knew right off the bat they would be a perfect fit. Both of us do not normally like to take photos of ourselves, but they immediately put us at ease. We chose to elope, and on the day of Hannah & Michael were not only our photographers but also stand in bridesmaid/groomsman helping us to get ready, watching our dog child, and having fun with us. I cried a lot, but laughed even more. AND TO THE PHOTOS. Hannah has a special gift. I can not stop going through them. If you are looking for someone that can capture you, your personality as a couple, AND have fun then Hannah and Michael are your team."
Even though we had a micro-wedding, Hannah and her husband Michael made it feel grand. They were extremely great to work with and were super friendly. Hannah even accomplished getting our 2 year old niece to stop fidgeting in order to pose for family photos. Hannah and Michael weren't just photographers, but they tried to offer any assistance with things leading up to our wedding. After seeing the final wedding photos, we'll have so many wonderful feelings and memories from that special day.
