For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to travel and photograph the world as I see it. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to travel until I was an adult. For my first international trip, I spent two weeks in Bali by myself.
Everyone thought I was crazy to venture so far alone, but that trip changed my life! I love to immerse myself in the people and culture of the places I travel. For me, culture shock comes when I return home.
It is so hard for me to pick a favorite destination because they are all so different. A recent favorite was the north and west of Australia. The people, culture, and wildlife are absolutely amazing. I was lucky to have an evening with an indigenous Australian woman who told me all about their marriage practices, taboos, and totem animals.
As a Southern California native, I also love all destinations with sand and surf… the bluer and warmer the water, the better! I came to travel after being a wedding and event coordinator for some years, which accounts for my love of destination weddings and honeymoons.
