The Face Behind The Lens
I'm Lisa, and I'm basically in love with love. And food. And making people smile.
I was born in the sunny hills of San Diego, California; now I am currently residing in the beautiful mountains of Utah. Lover of the ocean, sunshine, books, music, terrible puns, and my wonderful family. I have two amazing children, three cats, and a sexy AF husband who supports me through it all.
I could probably write a novel on WHY you should *pick* me, but I know that's not what you're here for. You're here to find a photographer who sees you and your story. But rest assured I will be crying on your day because I do actually care, I'll also be cracking jokes (when appropriate, obviously) and bringing some great positive vibes as well.
When you think wedding photographer, you think of someone who comes and takes photos, poses you, stands awkwardly in the corner while your guests mingle, eats cake shamelessly... etc. BUT, not only am I your "photographer", but I am also your therapist, your errand person, your adventure/hiking buddy, your hair and makeup artist, your improve singer when needed, your snack keeper, your partial wedding planner, and also your friend.
mom + wife
I've lived my whole adult life as a mom + wife. it's been quite the adventure. my husband and I met through our friends. little did we know that one snowball to the face would start our lives together. he's constantly making me laugh and doesn't steal the blankets (freaking score). my little humans are what keep me going. they're my best friends and constantly keep me on my toes. I love being a girl mom and there's nothing better than hugs from my littles. we love singing + dancing in the kitchen, jumping on the trampoline, swimming, running around in the rain, playing video games, hiking, and going on road trips!
my favorite things
movies + shows: About Time, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter (obviously), Inception (or anything by Christopher Nolan), Oceans 11+13, Howls Moving Castle, Avatar the last Airbender, Game of Thrones, New Girl, Any and All Romcoms, Mean Girls (it's a classic okay), Moulin Rouge, and anything nerdy.
music: I love it all except heavy metal and I mostly avoid country. I'm constantly listening to music and dancing around my house! It plays a huge role in my life.
food: this is going to come out SO white girl but chicken tikka masala gives me life. I also love me some fancy tacos. and baked feta, I'm obsessed with it. I was raised vegetarian and don't eat any red meat!
I love our planet
I'm kind of a big fan of our big beautiful earth. I'm always trying to be conscious when it comes to location scouting, leaving no trace, using less waste, and continuously trying to improve.
being outside brings a kind of peace you can't find anywhere else. some of my favorite feels of the outdoors: the smell of wet soil, the energy right before a storm, the birds singing in the early morning, waves crashing, and the small feeling you get when stargazing.
