Hi, I'm Paulette. I grew up in the Southern Midwest, but a love for the open road and being inspired by new places led me to California, where I now reside with two cats, one snake, a neurotic chihuahua mix, my husband and our teenage daughter. It's a zoo! I'm a bulletproof coffee fanatic, I take Siri way too literally, and I can't decide if I like the ocean more than the mountains!

Here you'll find my photography, both personal and professional, as well as blog posts about my recent weddings and other topics, so check me out HERE.

For me, it's all about moments - even the slightly messy, imperfect ones. I'm not looking for perfection, I'm just looking at how I can best convey the feelings of the environment, people, and events around me. I love working with people who aren't afraid to let me into those real-life moments. My work has been published on Artfully Wed, Catalyst, and in 417 Magazine. I am a three-time award winning photographer with Expertise for the category of best wedding photographer. I am also a Custom Content Creator for Getty Images, and I work with brands to create imagery for lifestyle-centered campaigns.
