Heartfelt storytelling

That captures your legacy and reminds you of life’s sweetest seasons.

I believe that marriage should be celebrated beyond the moment you say “I do”; it’s something that should be celebrated every day of your lives together. My goal as your wedding photographer is to capture your unique love story and provide you with beautiful, tangible heirlooms that will be treasured for generations to come. 
My hope is that even on the hard days, when you look at the wedding photos hanging on your walls, you’re reminded of all the reasons you fell in love. And when your future grandchildren flip through the pages of your handcrafted wedding album, they will feel the joy and passion you two shared.

Wholeheartedly, I trust that there are invisible strings that tie us all together, and know that fate is a funny thing. I believe that when we’ve found our person, sometimes, we do crazy things for love. The kind of love that lives in handwritten notes and dances in refrigerator lights. The kind that sweeps you off your feet and builds white picket fences, together, from the ground up.

I'm Avery

Your fondest memories, your great love story... celebrated with the sophistication & style of               , and the warmth & easy-going nature of                .

Where west coast meets east coast



I was born and raised in the D.C. area, spent summers in the Carolinas, and relocated to Philadelphia in my early twenties before finally settling in sunny San Diego with my (new) husband! With a deep appreciation for international travel and frequent flights between coasts, I’ve had the honor of meeting the most extraordinary couples in the middle of their very own real-life fairytales. The one-of-a-kind love stories I am privileged to document have made me a firm believer in serendipitous once-in-a-lifetime moments that change everything.
Whether you’re high school sweethearts, whether you met at a bar or on a dating app, whether you found each other exploring lands abroad… the story is yours to tell and mine to capture, so that you can cherish the memories you've made together for the rest of your lives. No matter what coast love finds you on.


If you’re looking for timeless, luminous images that will make you warmly smile each day and be passed down for generations, you’re in the right place. 
But just know - it’s more than photos. It’s an everlasting experience, and a friendship that remains from milestone to milestone. (I’m in it with you for the long haul!)

Her talent sets her apart from most, but it is Avery’s sweet personality and her love and passion that sets her apart from all the rest!

My love for photography has brought me everywhere from the beaches of Southern Florida to the deep blue lakes of Oregon. But regardless of where I travel in the states, my heart is called to the cultures, cocktails, and cobblestone streets overseas.

I *might* be obsessed with houseplants. By "obsessed" I mean my bedroom alone is a jungle with 40+ plants breathing life into the space and bringing me immense joy. I especially adore my monstera and many succulents. More plants are always welcome around here!

Sentimental items can be so profound. I could spend hours on end sifting through my great grandmother’s jewelry and film photographs, or browsing antique shops for timeless pieces with secret stories.

It’s more than a caffeinated cup of joe. It’s the blissful experience. The sweetness of the mocha, and the espresso that warms you from the inside out. But also the caffeine, that’s very much necessary.

are you ready to capture your legacy?

As a young child, long before I captured my very first wedding, my mother would often give me disposable cameras. I would run around the house photographing the world around me and the people closest to me in the most candid manner. Though juvenile, I carefully tucked the resulting prints into a special keepsake box, treasuring the photos because they allowed me to travel back to specific moments in time.

With a keen eye for recognizing good light & good love, paired with an ever-existing passion for art, I found that it was my calling to document and preserve beautiful legacies in visual form. In a way that grants you the ability to return to your cherished memories with timeless photographs. In a way that allows future generations to deeply connect with you and feel a part of emotional moments they weren’t physically present for. The tiniest details may fade from your mind, but I believe that’s what heirloom imagery is for.
