I love photography because it allows me to freeze time and illustrate moments that will be shared and treasured for generations to come. Photography is a field that is so rewarding and constantly evolving - it's truly a great adventure!
I see life in angles, lighting and lines of perspectives. Each and every day is full of beautiful moments, all you have to do is pay attention. I feel so lucky that I get to live creatively and push the scope of my experience through the lens.
There is something magical about capturing the unexpected moments and reactions that make each couple’s wedding unique. For me the candid moments of the wedding day are the most important images I can take, so I am constantly on the lookout.
Creativity and artistry fill my soul! I love how artistic photo editing can be. The special moments, the details, the fashion... I am so inspired by the originality of our couples
ABM's story is simple! It started with a couple of friends drinking more than a couple of beers, sharing stories in a North Park loft. Although coming from different photographic backgrounds, there was one thing that we shared...the overwhelming passion for the photo-journalistic style of wedding photography. We have a huge passion for our craft and we are blessed to be able to make a meaningful impact on people's lives by documenting their wedding day.
Our goal is to create stunning imagery that blends fine-art photography, photojournalism, and casual portraits. We strive to produce a visual story of your wedding in a more emotional and artistic way. Working throughout the day with minimum direction and posing allows you to relax and remember your wedding as a day spent with family and friends. We avoid gimmicks and cheesy trends in the effort of capturing timeless imagery that you look back out and appreciate for years to come.
I have always been drawn to nature's raw energy and true authenticity in people. Documenting that energy through images and video brings me immense joy! Along with spending time in or around the ocean, whether that is fishing, surfing, kayaking, open ocean swimming, spearfishing or prone paddle boarding, I love it all! My family and I love to explore different adventures on land and sea throughout San Diego County and Baja.
My love for adventures and the outdoors have been with me since I was a kid. In a weird twist of fate they also have done a lot to shape me as a photographer. When I was 14 I used to read Climbing Magazine from cover to cover and always obsessed over the photos and the photographers that took them. Over 20 years later here I am photographing one of life's greatest adventures and the occasional adventure of my own. I am a photojournalist at heart and storytelling is the soul of what I do.
After a long day of work and "toddlering" my husband and I usually unwind by gaming or watching the latest sci-fi or fantasy drama. Then, we sit there looking at photos and videos we took of our son that day and laugh about how absurd it is that as tired as we are, we still miss him when he's sleeping. We are always planning the next outdoor adventure for our little family, but I also love quiet moments at home with our two cats. Above all, I love to celebrate! Time passes so swiftly, and I love to pause everyday life and celebrate my loved ones.
Most weekends, you can find me at the beach, brunching it with the best sisters you could ever ask for or on the soccer field cheering on my three boys. My family fills my life with activity and adventure. I am passionate about pop culture and I love art, music and stories in any form. In my free time, you will find me lost in a book, binging on the newest show with my man, or listening to a podcast while folding laundry. It is fulfilling to know that I have been apart of telling the story of the best day of our couples lives.
