I spent the week in Mürren, Lauterbrunnen, Bern and Zurich photographing and it was the most beautiful part of the world I have ever been to.. The Swiss Alps is the perfect romantic getaway. For this shoot, I was going for the bohemian adventurous free-spirited and intimate bride. We did this by including a flowy dress, braided hair, and a vivid boho flower bouquet. We started off on the top of Murren, Switzerland and ended in Lauterbrunnen where there was this stunning natural waterfall.
Thanks to all the incredible local vendors that helped me make this happen!

This New York City Intimate Bohemian Industrial Shoot was one for the books. I’m currently obsessed with playing with harsh light and motion blur so this location was perfect for it. Because it’s an intimate and edgy feel of the shoot, I edited this session with softer and warmer tones to reflect the mood.
Thanks to Brittani Hon for having us in their new Brooklyn Studio. Thanks to all the vendors for being apart of this shoot! All info to vendors are at the bottom!
Constantly being nervous when he's in the room. Hearing him walk in the room near you. Memorizing his footsteps to see if he will enter your room or the bathroom. Hold your breath. Don’t show emotion. Be still. Or something will happen.
I thought my parents cared more than the other kids’ parents. They cared so much it was normal to be hit. It was normal I wasn’t allowed to be a person with feelings, thoughts and opinions, or even capable of making decisions. Who am I? I'm a disobedient bad child.
I’ve always wanted to tell him how much I hated him but I couldn’t. The penalty was too extreme. I tried running away but I was caught. I asked about calling child services but they said my life would be way worse. I believed them.
I dreamed about the day I could finally leave. Escaping from reality was the only way I could run away–climbing on the roof, curling up in the corner, sleeping in my closet, or swaying back and forth until I could fall asleep in peace. Crying wasn’t allowed so I had to cover my mouth and force myself to be silent.
It wasn't until I was getting married when I realized that this wasn't everyone else's childhood. This actually wasn't normal.
My counselor recently told me to put my hands straight out in front of me. Do it with power. Hold it for a minute. Showing that I’m capable of standing up for myself now. I’m allowed to have emotions and feelings, and I’m capable of making decisions. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done.
Anxiety-it's a real thing. As much as I am usually an easy-going and go-with-the-flow type, most people don’t know that I struggle hard with anxiety with anything relating to the medical world. It can be triggered by talking about body parts to sitting in a clinic, and, one of the worst for me…needles. In response to these, my body freaks out, panics and lose control of myself.
Just writing this is currently giving me anxiety cause I’m thinking about it LOL. This week, I had to go to the doctor a few times and just by sitting in the room waiting for my name to be called, I was a nervous wreck. There really isn’t a specific reason I’m scared however, I have found that in adverse situations, I find comfort in being with those I love.
My friend Hannah came with me today to sit with me through my entire appointment, and I seriously would not have went today if it wasn’t for her. My anxiety was taking over before she got there and I was ready to walk out in panic. But her help and her empathy with anxiety gave me enough strength to get through it. Anxiety is the weirdest thing ever I’m still trying to understand it. Anyone else struggle with anxiety?
It was a wonderful evening spent in Canyon Lake in Sedona, Arizona.
My vision for this shoot to go for a more intimate romantic and edgy look with lots of bohemian feels. I’ve been dying to photograph in the Sedona mountains recently so Canyon lake was perfect, especially at sunset.
Canyon Lake is so vibrant, lots of reds, oranges and greens. The florals were also very vibrant so to balance it out, I intentionally edited to tone down the vibrancy, especially the greens. I also photographed in hard direct sunlight for the edgy look. Thanks to Jennifer’s styling, the candles were the perfect touch to make the environment romantic.
Thanks for all the incredible vendors that helped put this together!!
