I am a wife, a mother and a passionate person. Fine Arts, music and theatre have been a part of my life before I was even out of the womb (As you might have noticed by my name). I learned how to take photos on my Dad's old Pentax from the 70's in college just as he did. After years of blood sweat and a whole lot of tears, the mechanics of film came together for me. Learning how to shoot originally with film I think was a massive blessing. I since then have obviously graduated to the most updated Canon products, but have a special love with film.

I believe that photos should tell a story and show an emotion that you can relive every time you look at a photograph. Posing is something that I do love to do, but I also love to connect with my clients so that they feel comfortable and happy to be working with me. I apologize ahead of time for my cheesy jokes and gabbers, but making you laugh is something I love to do! My mission is to provide you with timeless photographs that you can enjoy on display in your home for a lifetime, not just a trend that you may grow out of in ten years.

My team and I know that your wedding is irreplaceable and deserves our full commitment and hearts poured into your special day. When you choose to start your journey with Ballad's Photography, you are not just a client or paycheck; you are a new friend. An ordinary or typical experience for my brides will never be acceptable. The mission of this business is to be one of the highlights and favorite memories from your special day.

I understand that each bride is unique and different from the next. This is why an engagement session is included in every package. Getting you comfortable and understanding your wants and needs are the main focus for me. Ballad’s Photography is committed to showcasing your beauty, style and story through timeless photos and gorgeous albums.”

I have been published by some of the largest professional wedding magazines worldwide. Some of these include:

Ballad is a very friendly lady, with a great sense of style and sharp eye. I was drawn to her photography with its rich colors and dynamic poses. She worked with us to get a package deal that was in our budget and provided services and products that we wanted. Our engagement shoot was fun and an adventure, and she loved what we would do naturally together, encouraging silliness over all posing. She was very responsive when we first started out, but the later it got in to the things the less we heard from her. Only some questions would come back answered which was frustrating (she's a busy family lady, we get it). The wedding was fantastic, and she and her partner captured the best moments of our family and had unique ideas. They were flexible when we wanted to do a separate outing in the middle. However, once it was over, it was like she dropped off the face of the planet. It was tough to get answers about albums and other services after the fact. The kicker was after all the communication back and forth, and double and triple checking, our family albums (which were supposed to be xmas gifts) came in *wrong*. It was ratified in the end, but was very stressful and challenging to maintain patience after everything. Overall I would still recommend her if you have a flexible schedule and are extra careful about how you communicate. She's a great photographer and person, whose services are value priced.

I cannot say enough about my experience with Ballad's Photography. Ballad shot both my wedding and engagement photos and they are priceless memories that I will cherish forever. Ballad has this ease about her when she is shooting that made my husband and I feel comfortable, stress free and valued. She is efficient, professional, prompt and most of all flexible. I gave Ballad very little direction in terms of the type of pictures or settings I wanted and despite my vagueness, she completely nailed my vision and exceeded all of my expectations. I cannot tell you how many of my friends and coworkers have come up to me to comment about how beautiful the photos are after seeing them on Facebook. I am forever grateful to Ballad for perfectly capturing the best day of my life. In fact, Ballad was so great that I have already referred her to some of my closest friends and they are now using her as their wedding/engagement photographer! If that doesn't say it, I don't know what else will?

One of our friends had Ballad as their photographer for their wedding and I absolutely loved her photographs and the style of Ballad's work. When we were offered a chance to get our engagement photos done with her I immediately took the opportunity! Through the process of wedding planning I contacted Ballad several times to discuss the wedding timeline and always asked her a million questions and every time she was polite and SO helpful!!! On the day of the wedding I was a little stressed but Ballad and her crew came in and we had a ton of fun taking pictures. The pictures came out BEAUTIFUL (can't stress this enough!) and we were very pleased with the service. Ballad is a great photographer to have on your wedding day. So helpful, open and fun, and really has a special

Ballad was absolutely amazing! She took our engagement photos and when I didn't have a clue on where to take them, she had many options to choose from! We were confident in allowing her to choose where to go and I am so happy we did. The locations were perfect and she was very flexible with taking photos around our work schedules. During our wedding, it was great to see her crew show up capturing every moment that they could. I am so happy that I found here at the SLO expo. She was very generous as well to travel from the north county to Santa Barbara to be there for our day. I could not have asked for a more fun, energized, and professional person to work with! Thank you Ballad!

Ballad is a great photographer and a wonderful person. My husband and I aren't exactly fond of being in pictures, but Ballad made us feel so comfortable every step of the way. She was so helpful with the planning (we got married in San Luis Obispo, but weren't from around there, so we had lots of questions), every time I needed a suggestion she was happy to help. We even used the same caterer she used for her wedding! I can't say enough about Ballad and Megan (her second shooter). We love the pictures and the people who look them :)

We couldn't have been happier with our wedding photos! Not only were the photos amazing, Ballad was wonderful to work with. We weren't able to take engagement photos, so I was a little nervous about posing in front of the camera, but Ballad made us feel very comfortable and gave us great directions on posing to get some great shots. She captured so many great shots from our wedding day it's been very difficult narrowing down which photos to frame. She was professional to work with and very prompt in responding to questions or inquiries we had. A bonus of working with Ballad was the photo booth option that she offers. She has some great, fun props and judging from the pictures we could tell the guests really enjoyed this feature of our wedding. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for any event!
