hi there!

I’m Mikaela. Texas-born, Georgia-raised, now calling Santa Barbara home.

I have been a freelance photographer for 7 years, shooting everything from weddings to musicians to backpacking trips to music festivals. I also teach yoga & sling veggies with the fine folks at The Farm Cart. Photography allows me to connect with people & better understand the world. I am drawn to a slow & simple life and strive to emulate that in my work. I am always honored when someone chooses me to document their wedding day.
