Hi! I’m Jasmine, lead photographer and head honcho, teller of stories, and eater of French fries based in San Diego (but always itching for adventure). I grew up in Montreal, so I like Arcade Fire, speaking French, and eating poutine. I’m armed with curly hair, heaps of freckles, and plenty of awkward dance moves. I have a Scottish husband named Scott, a grumpy old tuxedo cat named George, and a lovable golden-heeler mix named Matilda, who REALLY wants to kiss your face. I’m constantly wowed by the terrain of California—the majestic ocean alongside craggy mountains and golden hills, spread out by a shrubby desert. Every day I look out the window with wonder and gratitude.
As a mixed-race immigrant woman, representation is incredibly important to me. I believe black lives matter, every body is a good body, no human is illegal, and that love is love. My pronouns are she/her. For lots more information on our company and personal values and the organizations we regularly support, check out What We Stand For.
Six years as a brand strategist/designer helped me to fall in love with storytelling and out of love with corporate bureaucracy. Now it’s been over ten years shooting weddings, authentically reflecting real human experiences. I’m also a whole-hearted believer in the genuineness, curiosity, growth, and art of making things with one’s hands. I use mine occasionally to make pottery, paint, or strum on my guitar, and daily to tell stories about incredible magic between inspired people. I’d love to tell yours.

- JulieLead Photographer & Shameless 90's Lover
If you mix a night on the town knockin’ back beer with a love of her adorable puppies, endless energy, eye for fashion, podcasting about photography, and the midwest repping in a big way, you get a big serving of Julie. Throw in a great brunch for good measure. Hailing from Iowa, Julie has a down-to-earth, excitable, positive attitude with a little snarky joking in for good measure. She can recite just about every R&B/Rap lyric from the 90’s on demand, and she’s got the moves to go with it. Julie calls it like it is, and she’s got you covered with a great eye and can-do spirit.

- ShelbyAssistant Photographer & Sassy Mc Sassypants
Shelby’s a people person and her versatility slays all day. She brings the energy and she’ll make you laugh from morning ’til night. She keeps it real, and she’s got your back, working away at making things happen. She has an ideal climate of 75-80 degrees which means we see her wrapped in blankets or hugging the AC all the time. She’s got a ride-or-die boxer pup, two wildling kiddos, one navy husband, and a whole bunch of sass. She lives for good wine and game of thrones. Shelby’s Northwest roots and San Diego spirit are a match made in heaven, and if you’re lucky she’ll tell you stories about her adorably kooky kids that’ll make you giggle out loud.
- LoryelleAssistant Photographer & Style Maven
Loryelle is a powerhouse in a tiny package. Originally from Arizona, her background in photography and her ongoing creative work as an interior designer make her über-versatile (and super stylin’). She’s an inspired and sweet soul brimming with ideas and her caring nature has led to clients often remarking at how wonderful she is. She tenderly works her magic like a behind-the-scenes ninja at weddings. Kinda like the wizard of Oz, only, curlier. Nabbing amazing moments before you even realized she was there is her superpower. Her attention to detail and steady hands always leave us impressed.
- JillAssistant Photographer & Snark Machine
Jill’s a sassy one that’ll keep you laughing all day long—no kidding, her laugh is amazing. She’s also a firecracker of getting shit done, so when we start getting your family groupings organized, she’s ON. IT. While she has made her way to SD from Ohio, she’s called San Diego home for quite some time and lives in a darling North Park home with her husband and their two kooky dogs. She’s a natural caregiver, super hard worker, and is extremely adaptable on wedding days to ensure your experience is a great one. We love her snarky sense of humor and her ability to maneuver a challenge with grace, poise, and a joke!
- ErinAssistant Photographer and Color Queen
Erin is a celebrator of life, love, humans, honesty, and authenticity. She’s a mom of three boys and in her limited spare time, she somehow finds extra time to coach her kiddos’ baseball, as well as mentor other photographers. She’s got a sharp eye and is one of the fastest guns in the west when it comes to capturing moments. A fanatic for color, vibrancy, and magic, and a super creative film photographer who finds inspiration in every nook and cranny, we are big fans of the wonderful Erin and her can-do, buoyant spirit.
- RobinCreative Assistant and Studio Superstar
Robin’s our newest team member and is always making good things happen behind the scenes in the studio. She brings to the studio a fondness for Tilly the office dog (they have a special bond), as she has her own little cutie named Jesse. Originally from Pennsylvania, Robin has a background in film and has a fine appreciation for alternative 90’s jams that we belt out in the office. An afficionado of white wine, good beer, and snack foods, Robin also loves adventuring overseas so we expect good snacks to be brought back next time!
