About Frances –
Hello! My name is Frances (rhymes with dances). I have experience  in all aspects of the event industry including having been a wedding and event planner myself! I got into photography after seeing so many moments fly by and wanting to capture the split second, raw emotions that came with them. I am both a creative at heart and a planner in the head – which results in a very easy-going experience for my clients, and a countless number of details and emotions captured!

I have a very candid style and love telling a story through emotions – seeing tears of joy, happiness, and laughter are my FAVORITE! I thoroughly believe the best moments are the unplanned ones and this is very reflective in my photography style.  As for the day of the event – I strive to look and listen for the little moments of human experience that truly makes the day special. Regardless of whether it’s a planned session or documenting your big day, I guarantee we will have fun 🙂

Some things about me…

  • Crazy sweet tooth – if someone knows how to cure this, that would be great
  • I love all things movement – circus arts, dancing, being active, anything!
  • I’m originally from the Bay Area
  • I went to UCSD for my undergraduate
  • I’m chill + quirky (having lanky arms will do this to you)
  • Slightly scared of sunflowers. They look like people to me?
Frances took our engagement photos, and immediately we knew that we had to use her for our wedding. She made us feel comfortable and we had so much fun working with her! Even only after meeting us once before our wedding day, she knew exactly what to say to make us shed happy tears, laughter, and much more! Seemed like we knew her for years! I loved that she had wedding planning experience, it made the day flow effortlessly! We will never use another photographer again. Looking forward to our next shoot! Melissa

Frances is incredible! She is an outstanding photographer!! She was early to every appointment, she is extremely knowledgeable yet doesn’t force her preferences on you. Her more candid vs. posed style + her personality makes everyone feel so comfortable like family is taking the picture. Thus she is able to capture so many unforgettable moments. Sarah

Frances is amazing to work with. She made us feel at ease during the photo session and I really like her photography style (light and natural). She is super responsive and is always in touch providing you updates on the status of your pictures. Thank you, Frances. You gave us a beautiful gift with your talent and we will treasure it forever.

Frances is such a talented photographer with a real knack for helping people feel comfortable and confident during the session with her! She provided great guidance on natural-looking​ poses, knew just the right locations for beautiful shots, and was just so much fun to be around. People who I have shown my photos to have said that Frances really captured who I am and I couldn’t agree more! Avalon

Had our couple photos taken by her and we are absolutely obsessed. I am a true believer that engagement photos shot by females are sometimes softer and more lovely and she definitely proved me right. She has a really good grasp of cute poses, good lighting and perfect locations. I love every single photo xD she went well above and beyond our expectations. Tricia

Frances did an amazing job with our photos and we are very happy with her work!! 🙂 She was super kind and easy to work with. It was our first professional photo shoot and she made us feel relaxed with her candid style. Whenever we do another photo shoot, she will be the one we will contact. Ariel
