My story

moments go by so fast,
let me capture your memories

While based in Northern California I can travel far and wide to capture your day! My passport is ready to go. I love to capture authentic moments that will be cherished for years to come. I got my start as a graphic designer and began photographing seniors and families eventually leading me to the exciting life of wedding photography!

You can find me enjoying coffee and laughter with loved ones, embroidering, or spending time with my sweet little family.

My shooting style produces images that reveal the intimate and authentic expressions of the love and commitment you share. Unguarded. Natural. Emotional. The cherished images of a lifetime. Your wedding day will be filled with extraordinary moments — intimate, surprising, and joyous. Captured creatively, those moments shine through as timeless heirlooms, instantly bringing you back to the essence of your day. I would love to tell your story.



Mae is seriously amazing! My fiancé and I did our engagement shoot with her and she did a phenomenal job! She made us feel so comfortable and was up for any ideas I had as well as adding her own creative touch! I highly and mean highly recommend you book her as her photographer!

Mae and I have worked on several blog/commercial projects and it has always been a great experience! While I have had a clear vision and sometimes even guidelines to adhere to, Mae has always jumped right in and helped me ideate some great photo opportunities and poses. She remains calm under pressure and always makes sure her clients are comfortable and at their best before they step in front of the camera. To top it off, she is always so prompt when delivering final images.

We had already picked our wedding photographer. But we needed someone to do our engagement photos. After working with this wonderful and professional young woman, I completely regret not having her do our wedding. When I saw how the photos came out, I thought I had never seen myself so beautiful. She played with me and my fiancé's silly/awkward nature. She made us feel PERFECT! She had wonderful input and listened to our thoughts. Since then I have scheduled random photo shoots with her just because I enjoy working with her. She is permanently going to be my family photographer.
