Hi, I'm Brooke.
I say I have "cinematic daydreams" because the visions swirling around my mind look like dreamy scenes from a movie I have never seen; every photoshoot is chasing another one of those daydreams, and bringing it to the visual world. This shapes my approach. I let my mind guide me in every moment during a photo session - this can sometimes lead us in fun adventures, interesting situations, trying new things - but the portraits we walk away with are nothing short of moving, raw, brilliant captures of you, your moments, your legacy.
Every year since I began photography in 2018, I have only grown more passionate and focused on exploring the medium, stretching boundaries, and expanding my horizon. Having explored many, many different art forms, I found that photography fulfills something unspoken inside of my soul. Why? I'm not sure. But I keep looking.
When designing your photography session, I incorporate essences of who you are, your brand, your story, and your audience. I do this by spending ample time with each client and immersing myself in each project.
If you are here, I would like to thank you for the consideration and ultimately your time. As its the most precious thing we have.
If you have further questions or just want to chat, please feel free to reach out below. I look forward to creating with you!

How far do you travel?
There really is no destination too far! There are travel fees for weddings and shoots outside of my local area (Tuolumne County, California).
Areas I shoot frequently are Santa Cruz, Big Sur, San Francisco, Napa Valley, Yosemite, and Sacramento. I would love to do some work in these areas soon: Hawaii, Utah, Arizona, Washington, New Mexico, Canada, New York, Florida.
How will I receive my photos?
You will receive your gallery digitally. What this means is I will email you a link to a website that has just your photos. From there you will download the full gallery to a thumb drive, hard drive, or computer for safe keeping. All galleries can be expected 30 days after your shoot or wedding. If your balance is failed to be paid within 48 hours of your shoot or wedding, your photos go to the end of my queue and can take up to 6 months to be delivered.
How many photos do you deliver?
Weddings typically receive anywhere between 300-500 photos (depending on length of wedding). All other photoshoots receive 100-200.
How do I print my photos?
Prints are available for purchase directly through your digital gallery (for galleries delivered after March 4, 2023). The online shop has options for any print need you might need from large canvas to gorgeous flat lay albums. All prints are delivered directly to your door!
