I’m HILLARY

IT’S NICE TO MEET YOU

When I’m not photographing your most important moments, I’m hiking in the morning light with my family, creating videos for conservation based non-profits, reading the latest book in Reese Witherspoon’s book club, and eating oreos–cookies are my weakness!

Like most photographers, I picked up a camera as a child and fell in love with the craft. What sets me apart, however, is that I followed that curiosity through school and earned my degree from the International Center of Photography in New York City. I am trained in the style of photojournalism, and in addition to weddings and portraits, I have also worked for the National Audubon Society, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and other conservation based organizations. Check out my conservation work here.

When it comes down to it, my favorite stories to tell are always LOVE stories. My photography style is to focus on precious candid moments that naturally occur between people who are madly in love. Years from now, I want you to reach for your wedding album and have all of the memories come flooding back—the bliss, sentiment, light, and laughter from the day you began your greatest adventure yet. To me, the best part of photography is that photographs freeze time and allow you to travel back to special moments for years to come.

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”

Dr. Seuss

My love story

the reason why

I Do What I Do

/

I met my now husband on the first day of grad school at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He was the goofball in the class, but also smart as a whip and never ceased to bring a smile to my face. After quickly becoming best friends, he got up the nerve to ask me out. By the time he picked me up for our first date, his nerves inspired him to bravely ask “Are you ready for your last first date ever?” We laugh about his unearned confidence, but I thank the Lord he was right! We had a small destination wedding in Maui on March 26, 2019, and each day has been a new adventure together. Our love story and others inspire me to surround myself with love! In addition to shooting weddings, I’ve had the privilege of being a bridesmaid six times and a maid of honor twice. Each wedding is a reminder that love is always the answer.
