Ventura, California

hey there!

Let’s just get the first question out of the way- yep, my name is Albany- just like the city! I was born and raised in Southern California and currently call the beach town of Ventura my home. I have a passion for Guacamole, beach days, and hanging out in art museums. On Days when I am not working, you can find me hiking, camping, vintage shopping, and baking (yes, I will absolutely share some home-made baked goods with you!).

I am passionate about photographing LOVE because let’s face it- that truly is the magic sauce OF life. I am on a mission to create intimate, purposeful, and unique imagery and specialize in using a mix of film and digital mediums to give you photos as special as your day. 

I am up for anything… Hiking for your engagement session, camping for your wedding, walking the streets of downtown LA before the ceremony (with an ice cream stop along the way)… I am here to capture you wherever that may be.


My husband and I had never taken professional pictures together before when we hired Albany for our wedding. Not only are the pictures stunning, but she made the whole experience amazing. Albany helped us feel relaxed on what can be a stressful day, and made sure we got all the shots we wanted. It was so hard to decide which shots to frame after the wedding because they were all so beautiful!

Albany was everything me and my husband asked for and more. She was able to capture the most beautiful moments on camera and made us look like royalty. We are truly grateful for her. She will always have a special place in our hearts.

I am one lucky gal to have found Albany - she has an uncanny ability to make you feel completely comfortable and confident in front of her lens! She is patient and hands-off - but can be a knowledgeable partner and knows when to gently give direction. She is fun and funny - it takes all the pressure off!
